David Harbor teases the Red Guardian’s new costume for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie, Love at first sight. Love at first sight was first confirmed to be in development in June of this year, and at San Diego Comic Con 2022 it received an official release date of July 26, 2022. In the months since its development, many have speculated about the stars of the MCU. appear in the movie. Many have looked to Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and the secret team of anti-heroes she seemed to put together in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Black Widow.
Then, at Expo D23, the cast of Love at first sight has been officially confirmed. Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Alexei/Red Guardian (Harbour), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), John Walker (Wyatt Russell) and Valentina are all part of Love at first sight’ exciting line-up. Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but the cast clearly hints at the Love at first sight giving a glimpse of what the mysterious Valentine is up to. It is likely that the film will also address the issues of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Black Widowand Hawkeye.
Following the marvel studios Panel at D23, Harbor teased a new uniform for the Red Guardian by Love at first sight. When asked what he was most looking forward to in Marvel’s future, Harbor revealed that he was promised a new costume for Love at first sight. He expressed his excitement about having a variety of different costumes, similar to Captain America (Chris Evans) in the MCU. Check out his statement below:
“I was told I would have a new suit. And I don’t want to say the ‘F’ word, but I’m really excited about it. You watch Captain America and you see him in all these different movies, and you see the white star and the black star [on his costume.] I just want a wardrobe full of costumes, and I’m on my way.”
News of the Red Guardian getting a new costume is apparently backed up by concept art released alongside the Thunderbolt casting announcement. Although the art doesn’t necessarily show the exact costume Harbor will be wearing in Love at first sightthis suggests a different design of his costume in Black Widow. A new Red Guardian costume may also be particularly appealing to Harbour, given that there’s quite a bit of history surrounding her character’s costume. In fact, in the original Black Widow script, the Red Guardian didn’t even have a suit. Her retro costume was brought in after rehearsals when various tweaks were added to the script. Even then, however, his old costume became a bit of a running joke in Black Widow because, after years in prison, the Red Guardian wasn’t quite able to fit into his old superhero costume.
In Black Widow, the Red Guardian boasted a very comic-accurate costume, but that doesn’t mean it can’t get a new one. Just as Harbor said, Captain America had many variations of his costume, and given that Red Guardian sees itself as Cap’s Russian counterpart, it makes sense that he’d want to rival him in style as well. Plus, a new costume for the Red Guardian could also mean a fresh start. Like Florence Pugh’s Yelena, he doesn’t have a picturesque past, but he eventually managed to help Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) when she needed him. Ultimately, the Red Guardian’s new costume in Love at first sight will be the perfect conclusion to the running gag surrounding his old costume in Black Widow.
