Michael Wilkinson Suggests That Classic 'Wonder Woman' Costume is Not Off Table
Is Batman vs. Superman costume designer Michael Wilkinson going for more of a well known 'Wonder Woman' look than previously presumed?
In previous reports concerning the costume that would adorn 'Wonder Woman' on the big screen, to the relief of some fans, it was reported that the audience might expect to see the heroine of heroines in a more conservative looking armor, reminiscent of 'Faora Ul' in the 2013 premier installment of the cinematic series. But, how accurate were those reports?
During an interview with The Wrap, Michael Wilkinson was quizzed about his involvement in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel and specifically about his vision for Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman' look.
Here's what Wilkinson had to say when asked if he found it realistic for her to be fighting crime in her iconic outfit:
"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.”
"It's thrilling and slightly scary prospect. 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.”
Being that this is one of the few times when a "politically correct" change is so popularly welcomed, how disappointed would you personally be to see Gadot in the Princess of Themyscira's classic look? Sound off in the usual place and don't forget to hit the red glove if you liked it. As always, thanks for reading.
