** Rumor has it that there has been substantial pushback from the ''Power Rangers'' team toward ''Super Sentai'' in recent years to switch to leather. Whether it's related to these rumors or not, ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'' did make the switch (at least to faux-leather), but it didn't last. Since ''Go-Busters'' didn't do as well as Toei hoped, the following season ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' went back to spandex and ''Power Rangers'' ironically skipped over adapting ''Go-Busters''.

Since leather; a possible example of this is ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'', which features faux-leather costumes. However, since ''Go-Busters'' didn't do as well as Toei hoped, performed poorly, the following season ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' went back to spandex and ''Power Rangers'' ironically skipped over adapting ''Go-Busters''.''Go-Busters''. Then a few years later came ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'', whose costumes received input from Bandai of America and were designed to merge the aesthetics of ''Go-Busters'' with the much simpler suits of ''Series/DobutsuSentaiZyuohger''.



** Even more noticeable with the remade costumes, such as the revamped versions of [[Series/KamenRider Riders 1, 2]], and [[Series/KamenRiderV3 V3]] used in ''[[Film/KamenRiderTheFirst THE FIRST]]'' and ''[[Film/KamenRiderTheNext THE NEXT]]'' and the updated [[Series/KamenRiderStronger Electro-Human Tackle]] suit from the ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' finale movie[[note]]Reportedly, Toei also wanted to update Riderman for ''Decade'', but couldn't get the suit in time, which gave us Creator/{{Gackt}} in CivvieSpandex before changing into the old suit for the final battle[[/note]].

** 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.
