Costume Designer On BATMAN/SUPERMAN Movie Teases Wonder Woman's New Look

Possibly hinting we'll see Gal Gadot in full glory as Wonder Woman, Oscar-nominated costume designer Michael Wilkinson explains his thought process for Princess Diana's look in Batman vs. Superman



Amid their pre-Oscars party, The Wrap caught up with Academy Award-nominated American Hustle costume designer Michael Wilkinson and asked about his work on the Batman/Superman movie.
"I designed the new Batsuit," asserted Wilkinson when asked if he had a hand in making the praised costume for the Caped Crusader. "I'm designing the new Wonder Woman costume, I'm tweaking the Superman suit, so yeah; I'm glad [to be hearing] good buzz about it." he continued. When asked to explain his thought process in designing Wonder Woman's new look for the Zack Snyder-directed film, Michael Wilkinson said "It's a thrilling and slightly scary prospect of course. 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 look at the history of the character has been presented on the big-screen, small-screen, comic books, and graphic novels; we process it all. Then we kind of put that aside and work out what it right for our film, for the cinematic universe that our director Zack Snyder is putting together. We try to create a Wonder Woman relevant for today's audiences." Lastly, when asked if it would be realistic for Princess Diana to fight crime in what we've typically seen her in, the costume designer answered "absolutely!" "I mean, you just have to look at the Gladiators from ancient Rome, they did their thing… with the shield and everything. Yes, it works for Thor and 300, so let's see what happens." What do you think?

Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Laurence Fishburne, the untitled Batman/Superman film is directed by Zack Snyder from a story by David S. Goyer and screenplay by Chris Terrio. The sequel is set for release May 6, 2016!
