BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Costume Designer Teases Wonder Woman's Look
Rumor has it that the Batman and Wonder Woman character and costume designs for Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman will be revealed later this month. While we wait to see if that actually happens, costume designer Michael Wilkinson teases Wonder Woman's look in a new interview with The Wrap. When asked about working on Wonder Woman's outfit he called it a "thrilling and slightly scary prospect," and said:
"It's so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on-screen in her full glory. So what I do is I look at the history of how the character has been presented on the big-screen, and the small-screen, and in comic books, and graphic novels. We process it all. Then we kind of put that aside and work out what is right for our film, for the cinematic universe that our director Zack Snyder is putting together. We try and create a Wonder Woman that's relevant for today's audiences."
He was then asked if he thought it would be realistic for her to be fighting crime in her outfit. Here's his reply:
"Absolutely! I mean, you just have to look at the gladiators from ancient Rome, they did their thing in little loin clothes and shield....It works for Thor, it works for 300, so let's see what happens."
I'm really curious to see what exactly they've come up with for her costume. If they plan on presenting the character in her "full glory" then I imagine it will be what fans of Wonder Woman want to see.
David S. Goyer wrote the screenplay and Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Clark Kent/Superman as he goes up against Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The movie also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
The film is set to open on May 6th, 2016.
