Many fans were surprised to see Vision sporting a sweater and pants in many of the trailers and TV spots for Captain America: Civil War, and designer Judianna Makovsky revealed in an interview with Vulture the thought process behind this decision.
“When I had the first meetings with [directors] Joe and Anthony Russo, we talked about the Vision trying to feel more comfortable at the Avengers compound and trying to fit in. What would that mean? We started out with him more in comfort clothes, like sweats, or something really casual. So we drew it, and it just didn’t look right. It didn’t go with the voice, it didn’t go with the attitude.”
After being stumped, she looked to what an A.I. such as JARVIS might wear for inspiration.
“What would J.A.R.V.I.S. wear? I thought he would be confident and elegant in his taste, almost perfect, so we decided to look into the men of the 1940s, like Cary Grant: very simple flannel trousers, elegant cashmere sweaters.”
Makovsky revealed that Vision was even wearing an ascot, but it was hidden under his shirt.
Vision is in the newest Marvel film, Captain America: Civil War which arrives in theaters May 6th.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl. Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing.
