Weird that you call up the MCU, where most of the costumes were adapted to look more "realistic" than their comic counterparts, like Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Black Widow, Daredevil, Iron Fist (who doesn't have one anyway), Vulture (I don't remember Michael Keaton with bright green suit...) And so on. Also, I'm pretty sure a lot of the Netflix shows about marvel were far from considered ridiculous, but hey, that's on you. Your dismissal of MCU and the likes it's your opinion so, that's whatever for me.I disagree. The general public loves crap like the MCU and can easily buy into other worlds that aren't 100% realistic. Daredevil is hardly associated with his classic yellow and red outfit ever since he went all red and the Marvel Netflix shows in general were considered ridiculous anyway for being scared to embrace their superhero outfits despite taking place in the freakin MCU.
I'm not saying certain liberties couldn't be made, even Marvel and DC has done it, but when it's not even recognizable, you've completely failed at your job. I mean seriously, dark blue pants, a light blue STARS shirt and some black combat boots isn't a hard place to start.
Not that it matters anyway since they already f*cked up the casting, but still, I don't buy the notion that things can't resemble their source material because "it doesn't work." Sounds more like they don't understand the source material enough to make it work.
You said yourself. Blue shirt, blue pants and black boots. With the tactical vest, no shoulder pads and no beret. It's a good compromise. For ffs, Jill's original uniform doesn't even had a gun holster. That only came in Remake and she still under protected compared to her teammates. There's a lot to criticize in this movie, but Jill not looking like an anime power ranger cop isn't one of them.
