Wonder Woman in Man of Steel 2’s Outfit

A couple of days ago, Elmayimbe of the Latino Review posted this on Twitter:

“Gal Gadot’s WONDER WOMAN outfit will consist of ARMOR. Not the Lynda Carter itty bitty outfit. I hear it looks dope.”

I hesitated to post this because I have no idea how credible this person is. But today, the New York Times did an interview with Michael Wilkinson, clothing designer for the movie American Hustle. His interview included a really interesting quote:

“I have been given the opportunity to tackle a wide range of genres with my work: big superheroes, gritty contemporary, epic period, science fiction. It keeps me stimulated and challenged as an artist. At the moment, I’m designing the costumes for ‘Batman vs. Superman.’ It’s an honor to be creating new looks for such iconic characters as Wonder Woman. The interesting thing is that my approach is always the same, no matter the genre or the period. I’m using the same tools — silhouette, fabric, color, drape – to help tell the story and illuminate the inner life of the characters.”

Nothing specific, other than the fact that he’s creating a new look for Diana. But that much is to be expected. I hope it blows everyone away. As soon as we catch a glimpse of it, I’m sure everyone will know!

EDIT: NewYorkTimes has posted the interview with Michael Wilkinson.
