** Film/DoctorStrange: Averted with just fabric. The major characters are all sorcerers rather than superheroes and dress in mystic robes.

The choice can actually be quite complicated because -- of course -- the actors have to wear these things. In ''X-Men'', nobody could move in the leather. There was a scene as they are approaching the Statue of Liberty and they have to climb over a brick wall that's about two foot tall. It took them several takes because [[Creator/HughJackman Jackman]], [[Creator/HalleBerry Berry]] and Co. could [[InsurmountableWaistHeightFence barely clamber over it]]. Likewise, it wasn't until ''Film/BatmanBegins'' that any Batman actor could turn their head while in costume (Clooney lampshades this in a late show interview about how conversations between him and Creator/{{Arnold|Schwarzenegger}} would go), though how much of this is the latex and how much of it was costume design is unknown.

** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', however, the X-Men wear yellow suits made of fabric, inspired in equal part by the team's uniforms during their earliest comic appearances and the ''New X-Men'' suits. The only one in that movie to fit one of the three materials is [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110805224916/marvelmovies/images/2/21/Vlcsnap-2011-07-07-21h16m56s173.png Magneto in the ending.]]

* ''Film/XMen'' goes for leather, and it is the TropeCodifier for MovieSuperheroesWearBlack (as noted in the page quote).

A seen in bloopers, the leather suits aren't very flexible (James Marsden and Hugh Jackman had difficulty scaling a short concrete wall) and Marsden himself said the cast didn't enjoy wearing them.

* ''Franchise/SpiderMan'': Spandex, regardless of whether it's the [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy original]], ''[[Film/AmazingSpiderManSeries Amazing]]'', or [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] continuities; unique in that, since Spider-Man is explicitly very acrobatic, both leather and latex would be inappropriate.
