*** ComicBook/TheFalcon wears a black and gray outfit similar to his [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] look, rather than his classic red and white costume (which Anthony Mackie who played Sam Wilson in the film was reportedly actually disappointed by. In a rare change, he was looking forward to wearing the red and white spandex). The Winter Soldier himself has a more practical face mask and goggles rather than his DominoMask from the comics.

* Inverted for ''Disney/BigHero6''. Honey Lemon wore a black bra and leggings in the comics, with a red leather jacket. The film gives her a more ccolorful pink number with a skirt over purple tights. [=GoGo=] had a yellow and purple costume in the comic but the purple was changed to black for the film (though yellow is still the predominant colour). The others wore their comic accurate costumes.

** Played straight with Zoom, the BigBad of Season 2. However, this likely has less to do with thinking his comic outfit looks too silly and more to do with wanting to differentiate him from the Reverse-Flash, who like the comic version of Zoom, wears a yellow costume.
* Averted in ''{{Series/Supergirl2015}}'' where Kara wears a traditional red, yellow and blue costume. The colours are a little less bold than in the comics, but it's still a lot more colourful than Superman's ''Man of Steel'' outfit.

** Averted in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' - with justification, given it's a OriginStory. The X-Men wear kevlar-like yellow and blue suits reminiscent of the comics, The villains (aside from Emma Frost) do wear black, even if Shaw has a white tux at a certain point.

Magneto adopts his red and purple costume for the ending (but this was changed for the next film due to a {{Narm}} reaction from fans).

* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' had most of the cast in black or dark-blue uniforms. Justified though in that the X-Men usually go back and forth between dark uniforms and colorful costumes. {{Wolverine}} is notable for starting off in his classic orange costume and then transitioning to a black, maskless outfit in the later seasons. {{Magneto}} notably also sports a darker outfit. Instead of his traditional red and purple, he now has a mostly black outfit with red plates over the torso.

Mystique starts off wearing her traditional white costume, before switching to a skimpier black one in Season 2.

** Miller is known to prefer the black and white reprints over the original color comics. Some think it adds an extra bit of noir to the more dramatic stories.

** ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'' straight up lampshades it in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glEcKXvgPs4 the test footage/trailer]], where he is very much wearing an exact replica of his classic comic costume. His main costume in the actual film is also a very faithful rendition of his book costume.
--->'''Deadpool:''' [[BreakingTheFourthWall "Oh, hello there.]] I bet you're wondering why the red suit? Well that's so badguys can't see me bleed. Let's hope [[{{Mooks}} these guys]] [[BringMyBrownPants brought their brown pants!"]]

* While not black, the Flash's costume in the [[Series/TheFlash2014 2014 series]] is noticeably darker than the comic book version, mainly because of difficulty with filming bright red colors in RealLife, and has reduced yellow elements and a red ChestInsignia. When [[EvilCounterpart the Reverse-Flash]] shows up, his costume is partially yellow, but actually ''does'' have black for its bottom half and gloves.
