With the release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition) came not only behind the scenes looks at the film itself but also a tease of things to come in 2017's Justice League.
However, the concept art showing off the costumes our DC heroes will be wearing when Justice League rolls around is slightly different from the actual costumes which were on display when Warner Brothers invited us to the movie's set.
The main Trinity of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are the most accurate in the new image (well, Superman is a possibility, as he was completely under wraps following his fate in BvS). Some slight upgrades to Batman's suit with armor added to it and a bit of a blue tint in the grey areas were the biggest differences. Wonder Woman remains almost identical to the costume seen in Dawn of Justice with only some small adjustments made to the brightness of the its colors.
The biggest different come from Flash and Cyborg's costumes.
The Aquaman costume is drastically different from ONE of Aquaman's costumes. This costume appears to be the one seen in Batman v. Superman rather than the one which will be heavily featured in Justice League, though a costume very similar to the newly released image was also on display.
The costume is almost completely green and gold with scales and fish-like designs consuming it and covers all of Aquaman's upper body.. “The scales, the different language, the details, the illustrators for a long time coming up with all of this artwork from every different angle,” costume designer Michael Wilkinson explains.
Much of the suit’s lower half is made of polyurethane which allows Momoa to move around comfortably. It has a dark green coloring with golden imprints stamped in a pattern throughout.
Aquaman’s belt features his logo centered on both the front and back sides. His trident in the costume shop stands about 7-feet-tall and has five points, however, a Trident with three ends was on display in the art room. It may belong to Aquaman or it may sit in the hands of the Ancient Atlantean King.
There will be multiple Aquaman outfits in the film. In addition to the armored, scaly outfit, concept art showed a heavily tattooed Jason Momoa standing on land in jeans and another costume, similar to the main display was nearby with no upper half. The pants, however, were different from the others, lacking the Aquaman logo and a different scaly design.
Wilkinson and the others nearby were not ready to comment on whether or not the suit was made with underwater shooting in mind, though the very blue concept art showing Aquaman in Atlantis certainly suggests it would have to be.
There was no Cyborg suit on display on the set of Justice League because it will be almost entirely CGI but the concept art looked drastically different from the design released today.
The suit had a much brighter look to it, with a shiny chrome finish from head to toe. Most of Cyborg's face was also compromised to the robotic form with a lens and light over one eye which doesn't seem present in the new photo. A single light also emerged from Cyborg's chest and both of the aforementioned lights were orange on Ray Fisher's motion capture suit for wearing on set.
The costume everyone is wondering about is The Flash's. While this suit is the closest looking piece of art to what Ezra Miller was actually wearing on set by comparison to the overload of images sent my way on Twitter in the past week, it's still not an exact copy of the suit.
First of all, the suit has no white spots on the hip areas or inside the biceps. Also, it has closed gloves on the hands with black tips on the fingers.
Yes, it does have a circle around the chest's Flash logo.
The cowl is not one complete, smooth piece and neither is the rest of the suit. The suit, which is made up of 148 pieces, looks to be broken into smaller sections of protective armors all put together on one underlying connective material rather than a singular outer material. There is also quite a bit of wiring around the suit, connecting several pieces to others, which is not seen in the new image.
