The translation of superhero costumes from comic books to the big screen is always going to be a major point of contention. The suits that appear in comics are perfectly form-fitting, and the masks don't cut off circulation or make it hard to breathe. The same can’t be said for the suits that characters have to wear in movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Justice League. Actors in these films don’t just have to put on uncomfortable superhero costumes – some of their garb even puts them in danger in the pursuit of a cool visual.

Some actors who hated their costumes complained because they felt like they looked goofy in their suits, while other had nervous breakdowns. Many of these performers were forced to train for months just to get their bodies in shape for a form-fitting leather outfit. It’s not easy being a superhero, regardless of whether you’re fighting for Marvel or DC.
