Everyone was in a tizzy about this yesterday: the first image of Wonder Woman – from Batman vs. Superman – was released at Comic-Con. And many thought it was no bueno. Gal Gadot was cast – seemingly out of nowhere – in the role of Diana Prince/WW last year. I guess they spent all the money on securing The Batfleck! Because they really didn’t spend much money on Wonder Woman’s costume.
I’m not a knee-jerk jingoist or anything, but for the love of God, I don’t understand why Wonder Woman can’t be an American (Gadot is Israeli) and I don’t understand why Wonder Woman can’t wear some patriotic stars-and-stripes costume. It doesn’t have to look like she’s wrapped in an American flag or anything, but something more classically Wonder Woman than this. Maybe the image is just super-shadowy, but it looks like the costume is charcoal grey and burgundy? WHAT? I also don’t understand the wedge (stripper) boots.
Something nice: I like that her boobs aren’t hanging out. The bodice is well-constructed on that front, so at least it won’t be like “Wonder Woman’s special power is jiggling.” I also like that they’re keeping WW a brunette. Brunette Power Activate!
So, does Gal Gadot-as-WW impress you? Does she look like a warrior? Does she look like she could kick some ass in Gotham? Is she going to seduce Superman? Or Batman? Or neither? Maybe she’ll seduce Lois Lane.
