Looks like the costumes are intended to actually resemble the ones from the comics. Imagine that.
Over at IGN, they’re featuring an interview with January Jones (MADMEN). Among other things, they ask her about the Hellfire club and the period setting.
“…I can say that it doesn’t feel like a period movie. There’s obviously historical aspects in the storytelling and some of the props and stuff, but I think it feels very modern. It does take place in 1962.
One of the things that’s brought in from that time, the Hellfire Club aspect especially, is that it’s pretty — I dunno, the Bunnies and the Playboy clubs. It’s really cool. You’d think Sinatra was there. The sets are really cool and the vibe of the whole thing is really neat.”
