Comic Movies Should Use Codenames More

Something which bothers me with a lot of comic book based movies is that they don’t use the characters codename more. A lot of characters will have two names, their civilian name, and their code name. For example, Clark Kent is Superman. It seems like for the past 15 years or so, the code name is hardly ever mentioned. I think that lots of the movie going public, they wouldn’t even know a character’s civilian name, yet that’s how they’re referenced for most of the movie.

To me, what movie writers should do is to always have the characters be referred to by their code name when they’re on a mission. For example, in Star Wars, when the pilots are flying, they always refer to each other via code names (red two, gold leader, etc). The idea being that you don’t want the enemy to learn your actual names, should they be able to overhear your radio chatter. Comic book based movies need to do the same. When Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff are on a strike mission, they should always refer to each other as Captain America and Black Widow. When Black Widow and Captain America are back at base, chilling out, they can refer to each other as Natasha and Steve. It certainly would give a purpose to having these code names in the first place.
