Minor But Important Changes Made To Wonder Woman's Costume In Justice League


Justice League costume designer, Michael Wilkinson, will tell you his job is, first and foremost, about telling a story. That's why it was essential to Wilkinson to make sure Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice displayed wear and tear from the numerous battles she encountered in the past five millenia. For Justice League, Wilkinson is tweaking the costume to make it more comfortable and to enhance the battle scar elements.

"They're really just typical changes to make the costume more comfortable and more serviceable for the choreography that Gal does," Wilkinson explained to Comicbook.com and other press during a Justice League set visit. "We did a slight tweaking of the color too, we've enriched the red a little bit. We always talk about centuries of congealed blood from her victims on the dress, so we really went for that really rich blood red on the dress. We increased and we exaggerated these sort of different golds and silvers. You can see in her eagle and the W's on her belt."

"One of the things that I love about working with Zack is he just wants everything to have this fantastic grace and reality to them," he added. "This is a costume that Wonder Woman has been wearing for all 5000 years of her existence and so she hasn't updated it. She trails the sword through all of her battles over the centuries, in the costume."

Oh, and by the way, Wilkinson also confirmed that she'll have her Lasso of Truth.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.


The film is being directed by Zack Snyder, based on a screenplay by Chris Terrio. The cast features Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J. K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, and Amber Heard as Mera.
