Batman vs. Superman costume designer Michael Wilkinson tweaking costumes

December 21st, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


Costume designer Michael Wilkinson is used to working on comic based movies, having worked on American Splendor, 300, Watchmen, Jonah Hex, and Man of Steel, and he’ll be returning for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman vs. Superman. Speaking with Wilkinson says that they’re finalizing the costumes for the film’s heroes since production is set to begin soon:

“We are now in the stage where we’re refining our designs with the last series of camera tests and doing our final tweaks in preparation for shooting.”

Wilkinson adds that he pinches himself daily when he comes to work on Batman vs Superman because he feels honored to be involved with a project whose iconic “characters will be seen for the next generation of filmmakers.”

Wilkinson goes on to say that that in addition to creating all new looks for Batman and Wonder Woman for the film, he has made some “tweaks” to Superman’s costume for the upcoming sequel. We’ve already heard that Kevin Smith has seen the Bat suit and loves it.

What do you want the costumes to look like in Batman vs. Superman?

Batman Vs Superman (or whatever) was scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Zack Snyder, and is now being rewritten by Chris Terrio. Snyder is directing. Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in the film, Ben Affleck is Bruce Wayne/Batman and Gal Gadot is Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also reprise their roles in the sequel.

It is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
