Ever since model turned actress, Gal Gadot, was announced to play Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs Superman, fans have been very keen to see how the character will look in the DC Cinematic Universe.
Costume designer and frequent collaborator with Zack Snyder, Michael Wilkinson has already said 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.
Now while talking to The New York Times earlier today, he had a few more things to say about Wonder Woman’s costume:
“I have been given the opportunity to tackle a wide range of genres with my work: big superheroes, gritty contemporary, epic period, science fiction. It keeps me stimulated and challenged as an artist. At the moment, I’m designing the costumes for ‘Batman vs. Superman.’ It’s an honor to be creating new looks for such iconic characters as Wonder Woman. The interesting thing is that my approach is always the same, no matter the genre or the period. I’m using the same tools — silhouette, fabric, color, drape – to help tell the story and illuminate the inner life of the characters.”
Which Wonder Woman look should they use as their basis?
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 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.
