More From MAN OF STEEL 2 Costume Designer On His "New Look" For WONDER WOMAN
We've heard a little from costume designer Michael Wilkinson on this already, but while speaking to the New York Times he talks about creating a new look for Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) while sticking to his usual approach. What is that? Click on to find out.
We have heard rumors that Diana would be sporting some type of armor for Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman themed sequel to Man Of Steel, but short of that we haven't had too much to go on. Wonder Woman has worn different types of armor-type outfits in the past, and after all it was never too much of as stretch to assume that her first ever big screen appearance would not see her kitted out in her original short-shorts and skimpy top from the comics. But, it sounds as if we'll be getting a completely new look for the character - not seen in comic books or live action before. Here's what Michael Wilkinson had to say to the NY Times.
"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."
