Batman vs. Superman Costume Designer Teases Wonder Woman Outfit
March 2, 2014
We've heard from Batman vs. Superman costume designer Michael Wilkinson previously about the film's various superhero costumes, and now in a new interview with TheWrap, he was asked specifically about working on Wonder Woman's outfit which he called a "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."
When asked if he thought it would be realistic for her to be fighting crime in her outfit, Wilkinson replied:
"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."
