When we got our first look at Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume for the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was underwhelming to say the least. And brown. So very brown. Most people suspected that the photo’s colours had been manipulated and that the actual suit would be far less monochromatic, and that seems to be the case. We got a quick peek at the outfit in Bleacher Report’s recent video where basketball player DeAndre Jordan got to check out the new Batmobile, and now we’ve got a full picture:
Colours! Colour makes me happy. I still don’t love the costume; it’s a little too soldiery for my Wonder Woman tastes, and I still hate that tiara. But I like the colour choices a lot and I think it looks much better not brown. Lord knows why they made the first image so ridiculously dull. I think the reaction would have been a lot more positive if they’d stuck closer to how the costume actually looks rather than washing it out so much. That weird skirt is growing on me, though, especially now that it’s actually blue like it should be, and the torso is a pretty decent Wonder Woman look. The boots could use a bit of colour too, instead of being all metal, but they’re still decent. I have very little faith that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be any good, especially after that god awful first trailer, but at least Wonder Woman should look sort of cool. Hopefully the movie isn’t so grey and dull that we barely get to enjoy these nice colours.
