Wonder Woman’s costume for ‘Batman v. Superman’ revealed: meh or yay?

WW2

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.

Here are a few pics from the panel:

    Looks like Kim Kardashian doing Cosplay.

    I heard from reports of this panel that neither Affleck nor Cavill spoke, that the presentation was very short and awkward.

    • als says:

      That sounds in trend with this movie.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      They stayed 3 min ( really),just the time for the pics and the teaser

    • Bridget says:

      Correct. They walked out for the clip, apparently stood there silently and Snyder said he wasn’t going to let them talk, amd then they left. Snyder made a big deal about how they jetted in from shooting and were going straight back. Weird.

      B atfleck looks miserable.

      • OhDear says:

        Wow. Why have them there at all, then?

      • Migdalia says:

        Exactly this movie doesn’t come out for 2 years…they had the announcement last year(which was badass btw), the teaser this year and I’m gonna assume they’ll be there next year as well. Overkill.

      • Kate2 says:

        That’s weird that they would do this then. The awkwardness does more harm than good I think. I also don’t get that they do so much publicity and marketing for a movie that doesn’t come out for 2 years. Given that they apparently need over a year to put the movie together after principal photography (which also seems like a ridiculous amount of time) it just seems like building up way too much hype. After all this they had better deliver.

        I guess I just don’t get why movies take so long to come out after they shoot it.

        I don’t know how I feel about the costume. I don’t hate it as much as others, I think she looks a little more like the Amazon warrior she is than with the classic. I wonder if they were going for a more global appeal by neglecting the stars and stripes. She’s not Captain America. That’s just a guess though.

      • M.A.F. says:

        Whoa. That is right, it comes out in 2016. I’m going to guess that while they are adding in all the CGI there will be a lot of pick-up shooting, either to add scenes or completely re-do them.

  3. lisa2 says:

    She has this Kim Kardashian / Naya Rivera feel.

    The costume is sexy I guess, but why is that Captain America can have a classic costumn and Wonder Woman who is to me his female counter part can’t have her traditional costume.

    I’m not into these movies so I guess I’m not the target audience.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Lisa2, who wrote: “She has this Kim Kardashian / Naya Rivera feel. I’m not into these movies so I guess I’m not the target audience.”

      My girl Gal Gadot plays (or played … now I get why they killed her off in the last film) Gisele in Vin Diesel’s “Fast and Furious” franchise. I love (loved) her! She joined the cast in the 4th film and was killed off at the end of the 6th film (2013). :(

      She has great screen presence and is very pretty … but I’m glad they made her (apparently) bulk up a bit for this role because Gal is skinnier than Angelina Jolie (and like Angelina Jolie, Gal is just naturally thin … she was a successful ‘personal trainer’ for two years so she must have muscle). She 5’10″ tall and won the Miss Israel title in 2004, then represented Israel at the 2004 Miss Universe beauty pageant.

      I really like this young woman. I think she will bring it as Wonder Woman. Now I’ll have to see the film because I really like two of the three actors they’ve cast as leads (I loved Henry Cavill in “Man of Steel” … I don’t dislike Ben Affleck, but I think he was miscast in this role).

      Superman made a serious connection with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) in “Man of Steel,” so my bet is on her getting together with Batman.

    • FLORC says:

      While Captain America and Wonder Woman were of the same patriotic boosting/propaganda mascots of sorts her costume doesn’t have to be red, white, and blue. Nothing in her name has a clue to origin. So they made her as they liked.

      That said, I am their target audiance in more than 1 way and she looks horrible. This movie will have great special effects and that’s about it.

    • Oliver's mom says:

      Captain America is Marvel comics, Wonder woman is part of the DC Comics franchise. I don’t pretend to be an expert but my understanding is that the current iteration of DC Comics is much “darker” than Marvel. Which could explain why Capt. America gets to be bright and patriotic and Wonder Woman is more muted (much like Batman and the current Superman look.)

      Also, It looks to me like they were going for a more Amazonian inspired costume, which I generally like, except for the healed boots.

      • Ayre says:

        No. Woman. Is. Fighting. In. Heels.
        Or in loose hair. One of the reasons I loved the first Charlie’s Angels is the scene where they’re all running down the stairwell chasing Crispin Glover; they’re shedding skirts and fluff, and Cameron Diaz takes a moment to pull back her hair into an elastic. I don’t know why, but that has always stuck with me.
        Saw that movie in the theater! I am old.

      • Kitty hepburn says:

        Not really liking the costume , it looks nothing like WW , I agree it totally reminds me of Xena the warrior princess lol! My guess is that the iconic stars and strips WW costume doesn’tseem to fit the darker theme of the movie.

      • Lady Macbeth (Hiddles F.) says:

        Ayre

        Happy that finally someone said that… where does it come from this trend of having the female superhero in heels? No way a woman would ever fight in heels… a good pair of sneakers?

    • delorb says:

      Why’d they give her falsies? And such obvious ones at that. And in what universe is Batman taller than Superman? Jeez.

  4. Wilma says:

    It makes her look short. The great thing about Lynda Carter as WW is that she was tall and built with the tiniest waist. She looked almost unreal which helped play into the part. The above looks like they took a random pretty girl off the street and put her in a costume. Not impressed at all and 20 years from now no one will remember her name.

    • Josephine says:

      Lynda also had some meat on her bones, and broad shoulders. I was really hoping that they would choose someone who looked a little more strong and substantial.

      • Anne tommy says:

        Too right. I’m not expecting them to pick a female version of Chris Hemsworth but someone more athletic looking would have been nice, pretty girl but hardly intimidating.

      • They really dropped the ball not getting Gina Carano. She’s about equal on acting chops as Gal and would have actually looked the part. Too bad she and Cavill were on the outs when the casting went on.

      • Alexxxflt says:

        The what ? Have you seen FF6 ? Because Gina Carano is not even a third of Gal Gadot on the acting scale….she was plain horrible…like rubbing sand on a wound. Of course and on that I agree with you, Gina kinda looks more what I envisionned WW would look like..Gal still needs to bulk up imo. But acting wise, I’m glad they went for Gadot and not Carano…plus imagine if Cavill and Carano broke up again during shooting, that would turn akward pretty fast or worse, plain hostile.

      • Godwina says:

        And yet Carter’s WW looked like she had a case of the vapours when she ran, looked weak as heck, no physical control, off-balance and wobbly. It STUNS me to this day that WW and Alien aired the same year–the difference in how a woman walks, stands, fights, moves between those two characters/actors is extraordinary. One was a pin-up, the other an actual warrior. Seriously, watch them side by side and be amazed. I was a kid then and it broke my brain over that difference (in the best way). Feminist awakening: 1979.

        Ripley4ever and thank you Ripley and Ridley for putting an end to that BS.

        I look forward to seeing an onscreen WW who doesn’t totter. I’m not sure how I feel about GG based only on a photo–and was hoping for a more substantial and convincing warrior frame, but then, Asian martial artists don’t need meat, so there you go. Will wait and see.

      • K says:

        I don’t get why everyone says Lynda carter had ‘meat on her bones’ and was ‘curvy’, she said herself she was a UK size 8 in her heyday and shes 5-8 to 5-9…that’s THIN, as is this girl, just because Lynda had big breasts people call her curvy…

    • Petee says:

      Totally agree.Linda Carter was striking and still is.She was tall and that was her body.This girl is pretty but your right.No one will remember her name unless she is really badass in this movie.

    • cr says:

      It does make her look short. And per wiki, she and Lynda Carter are both five foot nine, so not short.

    • Brionne says:

      Linda Carter had hips and a tiny waist. This costume is actually more modest than Linda Carter’s was. I’ll give this girl a chance but something about Linda projected “I am a very tall very special woman here to save the day”

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Wilma, who wrote: “It makes her look short.”

      Gal Gadot is 5’10″ tall. We sometimes forget that Ben Affleck is 6’3 1/2″ tall (which is why Matt Damon–who is also 5’10″ tall–always looks like a midget next to Ben) and Henry Cavill is 6’1″ tall. Scroll down and look at the last picture of the four of them standing in front of the Comic Con sign for a better gage of Gal’s height.

      • FLORC says:

        She looks shorter in her promo picture. Not even calculating in the side by side shots. Just her in the costume. She doesn’t look strong and tall like Linda. Just short and frail.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Brionne, who wrote: “Linda Carter had hips and a tiny waist.”

        Lynda Carter was ‘gifted’ with a large bosom, which helped give her the illusion of a tiny waist.

        @Florc, who wrote: “She looks shorter in her promo picture. Not even calculating in the side by side shots. Just her in the costume. She doesn’t look strong and tall like Linda. Just short and frail.”

        (Blinks) I really don’t get short ‘or’ frail from Gal’s promo picture above, but to each his own and I respect your opinion. I just honestly don’t see a bit of difference between Gal’s promo picture above and Lynda Carter’s full-shot Wonder Woman picture via the link below (from Huffington Post):

        http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1259207/thumbs/o-LYNDA-CARTER-WONDER-WOMAN-570.jpg?16

        Lynda is a bit more bosomy (I think they’ve added something to Gal above), but that’s about it to me. In fact, Gal’s arms look larger and better toned than Lynda’s.

      • FLORC says:

        Emma
        I’ll give you the arms. Linda’s are smaller than Gal’s.from a tone perspective. I still think Gl’s frame is small and she doesn’t looktall in this shot. Maybe it’s the backround and costume throwing me off, but I don’t see her as a tall amazon warrior.
        I guess I just see a modelesque frame that appears to have little behind it. She doesn’t strike me as someone capable of taking on bad guys.
        Ofcourse, neither did Linda, but her acting got me through it. Gal’s acting will have to be stronger for me to buy her role.

      • Petee says:

        FLORC I agree.Linda looked strong and tall.This girl doesn’t.She is pretty,but she does not look like she can take on bad guy’s.Remember Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2?She was very short but I totally bought her as kicking any guy’s butt.

  5. Blythe says:

    I don’t care for the costume. I was really hoping that this Wonder Woman would, at least, put some muscle on for this film to bring some realness to the character. Wonder Woman is an Amazon! She should look strong because she IS strong. I wanted muscular thighs and arms. Sigh. I sound ungrateful, but those are my feels.

    • jinni says:

      Yes, I am right there with you and said something similar down thread. The people behind this movie talked a big game about how Gadot was going to be training and working out for this part. I remember that she or the movie people even released a picture of her in the gym, so I’m shocked that this is the best they could do to get her body to look like an Amazon. I don’t see how other actors can bulk up in shorter amounts of time for roles and she can’t. I’m not even really asking for her to be huge, just some muscle definition at the very least.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        @Tipsy….according to Wikipedia…Jerry Siegel, born in Cleveland, Ohio wrote the first Superman comic book…and yes, the comic book artist, was Joe Shuster, who was born in Canada, but moved to Ohio at the age of 9….The creator of Wonder Woman was from Massachusetts…so get your facts straight…and I think YOUR post proves my point that many have an intolerance to anything American!

      • FLORC says:

        Jinni
        I remember early on production was pushed back. Primary reason was said to be Gal’s implants needed to settle, but the official was script retouching and for Gal to bulk up. Looks like she didn’t enhance anything except her chest (which is completely covered so she could have used padding.)

        From the lack of acting chops with the core cast of heros I can only imagine the movie will be fight scenes drawn out too long like MoS. Kate bosworths superman was a better film than MoS.

      • M.A.F. says:

        I’ve heard many times on here when this movie is discussed about her” implants needing to settle”. Is this actual fact or just speculation? And if this is fact, did a movie studio really tell an actress to get breasts or did she decide on her own?

      • FLORC says:

        M.A.F.
        It’s fact she got implants post hiring for WW, but it could have been something she was getting anyways. They came after weeks of people saying she was too flat and tiny for the curvy WW role. She was to also need some gym time.
        And there was a direct link of Gal getting implants and production halting and being set back temporarily. Maybe a coincidence, Maybe not.

        Production can require or ask actors to get work done for a role. In Armageddon directed by Bay he told Affleck to her veneers because his teeth were too small. And they didn’t look right in the from below camera angles Bay likes to have in his films.

      • Happyhat says:

        I think, and I’m guessing here, that someone like Gal needs at least a year of full on training to bulk up in anyway that’s close to the desired Wonder Woman look.

        I always said they should have gone for a fitness model who’s been bulking for years, has at least 20 lbs of muscle on her, and has some acting ability, rather than an actress who’s got only a teeny muscle base to work off.

        They’re just never going to give me the Wonder Woman I want, and they never will if they’re making her for fanboys. Call me when they give her her own film made for fangirls, then I’ll be interested *waits for hell to freeze over*

    • Lori says:

      I don’t think the costume is great but I’m glad they didn’t go all American flag with it. Its off putting for the rest of the audience. You know the rest of the world. Many movies make the majority of their bank in the Asian countries anyway, not the US. Especially action movies. I for one think Henry’s girlfriend Gina Carano would have been a better physical type to go with for Wonder Woman. But I guess they don’t think audiences are ready to see a truly strong body from a woman in film.

      • jinni says:

        I’m sure the fact that Gina can’t act had a bigger impact on why she isn’t in the movie. I don’t know how well this Gadot lady acts but Gina actually needed to have all of her lines re-done by a voice over actress because she was so bad in Haywire.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        Frankly, I’m pissed that they take all the Americana out of the Superheros that were created in America! Do you think if Wonder Woman was created in say, France and her outfit had the French flag colors on it, they would care about “offending” the rest of the world. Or any other Country…NO…only in America, do we have to act like we aren’t proud of our Country and the things that are/were created here. Nothing can be TOO American, God forbid!!!!!! I’m sick of it!!!!

      • V4Real says:

        I’m sticking with my thoughts that this is only her introductory outfit. She’s an amazon and this is what she will be wearing when we first see her. She is not a superhero yet. I bet we will see her change into the WW attire people expect her to be wearing later on in the film or in The Justice League movie.

        There’s no way they are omitting that iconic costume

      • Lori says:

        I see your point, but the movie industry is about making money. And to make money you have to be sensitive to the countries that spend the $$$ at the movie theaters. And that is Asia.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        @Lori….do you really think that Asian countries wouldn’t go see B vs S, if Wonder Woman was dressed in red, white and blue…highly doubtful!

      • Tipsy says:

        @mrsbpitt- WonderWoman was originally written Greek in origin- not American. Superman was actually invented/written by a Canadian. I think the problem people from other countries have is that the US tend to lay claim to many things they did not invent (basketball was invented in Canada as well), wrap their flag all over it, plaster their beliefs on it, and then denounce the differing beliefs/values of other countries.
        It’s called intolerance- and I think your post proves the point nicely.

      • V4Real says:

        Guys like I said we will eventually see Wonder Woman in the red, white and blue, she just doesn’t start out wearing it. I’m sure most of the world don’t mind Superheros wearing American colors, I think the worldwide box office gross speaks for that.

        And no Americans didn’t invent basketball, they just perfected it.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Tipsy
        If Asian audiences spend millions upon millions on American films then it makes sense to give them more Americana – both sides win. And as for you calling MrsBPitt out as intolerant, well you are being inaccurate as well as uncivil. Her comment reflected her dismay not any inability to accept/inderstand what others do, which would be intolerance.

      • Amy123 says:

        If Captain America can make a couple hundred million more in foreign markets than in the USA, having WW wear red, white, and blue isn’t going to hurt anything. WW and the majority of superheros are based on American comic books. The nationality of the superhero and writer/creator seems irrelevant.

      • FLORC says:

        Jinni
        Gal Gadot is worse than Gina. Truly worse. She’s pretty and thin and that’s it.
        Gal is “famous” for her roles as 1 or the hot chicks in the Fast & Furious movies and had a brief role in the Tina and Steve movie Date Night. She can play a pretty call girl role just fine, but don’t give her too many lines. That’s where she’ll trip up.

        On my mobile so links are tricky, but there’s a decent youtube video of her roles in a collection. She’s awful.

    • Mia V. says:

      Yes, this woman is an AMAZON, a mythical being and they show up with this? I like the golden outfit, it looks very greek/amazon like, but she doesn’t look kick-ass. Won’t be wasting my cash to watch this. Why can’t DC make a movie with their superheroes work like Marvel does?

      • FLORC says:

        Mia V.
        “Why can’t DC make a movie with their superheroes work like Marvel does?” I ask myself the same thing. I have no clue. They have great superheroes and a following, but they’re choosing the wrong directors and producers time after time. Hiring Snyder for this in many geek minds was the nail in the coffin that this momvie would be awful. Adding Baffleck was pouring cememnt on that coffin.
        I’m not “meh” on this movie. My inner nerd is sobbing over the silver screen abomination this movie will be.

      • M.A.F. says:

        I wrote down thread about Marvel vs. DC in a way. Could the reason behind the difference be that DC has to go through a variety of studios where as Marvel has its own studio (w/Disney backing)? Therefore Marvel has more creative control?

      • Algernon says:

        @MAF
        That is widely believed to be the reason. Marvel only makes Marvel movies, and it’s run by a bunch of obsessive nerds. Of course they’re going to get the details right. DC, however, is just one more cog in the wheel at WB, and they put Zack Snyder in charge.

  6. 'P'enny says:

    Zena mk2 I wasn’t expecting marvel blue white & red etc. but it’s rather safe Amazonia and not a trace of Americana. 1/10 for creativity.

  7. rrabbit says:

    That’s Xena, not Wonder Woman

    • Kali says:

      Considering the Xena costume was like the Amazon version of the Wonder Woman costume, it’s like they’re coming full circle….

    • V4Real says:

      Yep it’s Xena and I changed my mind to believing this is exactly how she should look in the beginning, she’s an amazon. I bet she changes into the WW costume once she becomes a superhero and join the team. Would it make sense for her to come out the gates dressed as Wonder Woman? Superman didn’t start out dressed as Superman.

      • T.C. says:

        V4real

        I see what you are saying but the first promo pictures of both Superman and Batman were in their iconic costumes because that’s who the audience is looking forward is why would the change the rules for Wonderwoman? These promos are to hype up the audience, no one is getting excited from this total FAIL of a costume.

        It’s like when they first introduced Gal Gadot and we were complaining her frame is too thin and she won’t be able to bulk up like the other actors . We were told she was going to train and we will see her later with bulk and muscle. Didn’t happen. I’m afraid for this movie what you see initially is what you get. Remember Zack Synder is directing and he is not too far from Michael Bay when it comes to how he sees women.

      • FLORC says:

        T.C.
        Your cmment has taken my last few comments on this thread topic and put it all in 1 nice 2 paragraph statement. Awesome.

        -iconic costumes
        -Bay/Snyder objectifying
        -Production delayed so Gal could bulk up/let implants settle

        Truly people are justdreading this. Afflecks face during this whole thing says it all for me. He’s over it.

      • V4Real says:

        @T.C hou could be right but just like I said downthfead if we don’t see it in this movie we will eventually see it in The Justice League movie.

        I think this film is going to be one big mess. But I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a glimpse at the iconic uniform. Maybe they are saving it and that’s why we don’t see it in the promo pics.

    • aquarius64 says:

      THANK YOU!!!! A lot of people are saying that on other blogs.

      Let’s see how this Wonder Woman executes her powers: the Bullets and Bracelets, the tiara boomerang, the lasso throw, and….her transformation. Does she twirl or does she come out in full battle gear? To be fair, Lynda Carter had a dance background so she was able to do the transformation twirl elegantly.

      I would love to see the Wendy Williams show on this. Wendy is a die-hard Wonder Woman fan.

  8. Ostone says:

    Glad to see the “skirt” barely covers her business. Still this whole movie, batfleck, WW casting and the movie being constantly pushed back reeks of hot mess.

    • Lucinda says:

      Yes, I know she traditionally is in a skirt but it doesn’t have to be that way in 2014 and it certainly doesn’t need to be so short. It’s pathetic that the best we can say is that the bodice actually supports her girls instead of having them hang out. Why can’t we cover her? I too also wish she had more muscle. This movie is going to be a mess. They just don’t know how to empower a woman character. So sad.

  9. CuteC says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but it looks like the top of the bodice is supposed to be an eagle (or some other bird perhaps). I suppose, if it is an eagle, that’s they’re subtle way of adding American symbology without making it tacky.

  10. GeeMoney says:

    Sorry… I was too busy DROOLING over that pic of Henry Cavill.

    Her costume looks ok.

  11. Jen2 says:

    She just looks like some oversexed dominatrix. It does not say Wonder Woman but as someone above said, it is not to appeal to me, but fan boys who want a “hot chick” or Zena, Warrior Princess (I saw this on some other blog). The three of them don’t look comfortable at all especially Affleck who looks like he wants to run from the room.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Clearly they don’t look at ease ( maybe they were anxious)

    • JWQ says:

      Xena was a hot chick but was tall, big and with muscle definition! While she was 80% fanservice, she looked like she could kick asses! This girl, not so much!

    • Ericka says:

      Do you think this cast has any connection together? They seem tired and miserable(due to work) but they don’t seem to rely on each other? Yes! I got this all from these pics! I get it, why would anyone but ppl into comics want to be there? It has to be loud and grossly annoying! At least you have your coworkers to laugh and relate with? You normally see the cast having looks with each other and some idle chatter. An audience needs chemistry and spark to believe! I’m not some old man in an office though, so what do I know!?

  12. emma says:

    The costume looks like a throwback of Zena.

  13. blue marie says:

    I’m willing to give her a shot at the role but I am not a fan of the costume. To me, you should be able to look at the picture and see “Yep, that’s Wonder Woman” and not have to be told its her.

  14. Assistant Rachel says:

    This costume looks like Xena, stripper princess.

  15. als says:

    The costume looks similar to the one Xena, The Warrior Princess had, although Xena’s skirt was a little longer and she rocked that costume, we’ll have to see about Gadot.
    On another topic, how did they decide on Affleck as Batman? I look into Affleck’s eyes and I see a man unsure of himself, even scared – I don’t know if that’s how he really is, but this is what he expresses.
    I am not a comic-con geek, but Batman is my favorite superhero and to me he has a steely look, a determination of a man that defeated his fears and demons. No matter how much muscle Affleck puts on, he will never, ever be close to Batman. It’s all in the eyes. Christian Bale was perhaps the best Batman.
    I look at Cavill and I can see Superman’s overplayed niceness. He’s good for it. I am very curious to see what comes of this movie?

      Warner Bros wanted a guy with who they yet worked and a big name.Affleck is involved much in Superman vs Batman.Argo’s writer rewrote the script ,Argo’s editor is rumored to be S vs B’s editor.
      WB would like that Affleck directs Justice League

      • als says:

        I didn’t know all this but it still looks like risky business. If S vs B bombs, the Justice League won’t have much wind underneath its wings, that is if it gets off ground.
        Sounds like they are counting their chickens before they hatch.

    • M.A.F. says:

      I think the problem Affleck is going to have is being compared to Bale and he will get tons of questions about when the promotional tour comes around. His Batman is coming out way too soon after Bale hung up his cape.

  16. Kali says:

    I love the sword! Am stoked she’s not in heels. The costume looks solid and something like she could actually “fight” in too. Will be interesting to see if that’s the actual final colour of the costume or if it’s just looking entirely bronze/dark due to the CONSTANT! GRIM! DARK! GRIMNESS! so far of what we’ve seen of Superman v. Batman. Someone further up the row made the good point of the subtle eagle in the bodice of the costume too.

  17. Miss M says:

    I think she will be fine in the role. But I am not impressed with the costume and the hair.

  18. Bridget says:

    I think this officially puts me in the category of “hates Zak Snyder”

  19. Lexie says:

    WW isn’t American, she’s Greek. In the books, Themyscira and the Amazons are created by the female Greek goddesses and are reincarnations of thousands of souls of woman murdered by men. WW is molded from clay by the queen and blessed with life by 6/7 major Greek goddesses. In the new 52, she is the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta (the aforementioned queen). She’s later sent to man’s world as an emissary, and the Amazonian costume she receives was created decades earlier and was based off the artifacts of a brave American who ended up on the island. Point being, she isn’t American, so I don’t think that role requires an American actress. If anything, it would’ve have been awesome to have an actress of Greek descent!

    • Kali says:

      Oooohhhhh, I didn’t know about the reincarnation aspect for the Amazons in the books! That’s really bad@ss! I’m guessing/assuming you read the comics? If so, do you have any favourite storylines etc.? I’m having a lot of fun educating myself at the mo on what I’ve been missing out on :)

      • Lexie says:

        I’m a pretty big fan of DC (though I’ve chosen to “forget” that awful green latern movie ;) ) so yes, I do read a lot of the comics! What’s awesome is that a ton of libraries are growing their graphic novel section, so you can find many of the good ones in one place/one book! I find that when first getting in, finding “events” in the universe is simpler. DC has a lot of moments in canon where either it’s a major moment in one hero’s story, or moments where every hero is impacted by one event. If you’d like something gritty, “The Killing Joke” by Alan Moore is a very bleak but riveting read based on the Joker, Batman, and Batgirl. It’s sort of standalone, so not a lot of background needed but it was a huge moment! For WW, anything by Gail Simone (one of the BEST comic book writers). Within the justice league, try “Infinite Crisis”, “identity crisis”, or “Injustice”! All great. And the DC wiki site is awesome if you need to look up characters backgrounds, origins, relationships!

      • Kali says:

        Thanks! I’ve found I’m definitely a Marvel girl at heart but definitely want to make sure I’m “well-rounded”. I definitely know what you mean about “events” being an easier way to get into things. I’ve just finished “House of M” and loved that. I also really loved “Red Son”, was fascinating to see an alternate take of Superman/Wonder Woman.

  20. Christina says:

    I am t not sure why it matters that Gal Gadot is not American. Wonder Woman is Amazonian, not American. They based this costume loosely off of other versions of Wonder Woman from the actual comic books and not the tacky outfit from the television show. The streamlined and modernized Bats and Supes outfits, so obviously had to do the same with Wonder Woman. It would look ridiculous if her outfit looked like she sewed it in her bedroom and then Bats and Supes have on these kickass outfits. I also think we need to give it a chance and see how it looks in action on the big screen.

    • 'P'enny says:

      Marvel managed to keep cap America in Stars and Stripes and it worked. Cap America and Wonder Woman are the same they represent the goodie-goodie freedom of Americana, it can be anyone playing it and a Greek actress would have been cool. But at end of day I’m all for modernising comic charCters but they are messing with one of my major childhood heroines here. Some elements have to stay and that’s twirling to change costumes and the bullet reflecting. She was very anti-weapons if I remember rightly.

    • Lexie says:

      Anti-guns usually, but she trained a lot with swords and more “warrior-like weapons”.

      • Kali says:

    • V4Real says:

      Here’s what I’m thinking. This movie is nothing more than an intro for the Justice League. When we are first introduced to WW we will get her back story and this is her normal attire due to where she is from.

      I bet once she joins forces with the others she will then switch to the red, white and blue. If we don’t see it in this film I think we will see it in a future film. This is nothing more than her introduction attire. Superman didn’t start out wearing the cape and red boots, it later became his costume.

      BTW I’m sure they will make the new costume more modern. Henry Cavill isn’t wearing Reeves cheesey tights from the 70′s.

  21. NorwayGirl says:

    Hey, if you people look carefully, you will see the invisible plane behind the “Wonder Woman” or “Xena” or whatever she is.

  22. The Original Mia says:

    Had no idea there was even a panel. How sad is that? I don’t hate the costume, but I’m not impressed with it either.

    Henry looks good, but that’s a given. I hope he got his geek on and got to roam the con.

  23. Jane says:

    What’s up with Affleck? He looks bloated and miserable.

  24. jinni says:

    So all of that talk about her working out and her posting pics of herself in the gym yet she still looks frail. Where’s the beef?

    I wasn’t expecting her to be bursting with perfectly sculpted muscles, but would it have hurt if they made her at least look physically imposing. Like at least some muscle definition. Gadot looks like any other comic-con babe/model that get hired to dress up as a sexy version of a female character for the delight of the fanboys that attend such events. She doesn’t look heroic.

  25. Mzizkrizten says:

    So is she Greek or Amazonian? LoL. I just hate how these females always get shafted in the pants department. If I was she and she was me I’d prefer more coverage. Cover my ass, quite literally!

  26. M.A.F. says:

    Still not sold on her playing the part. Still too skinny for the role, makes me wonder if they will add CGI muscles in post. Just another pretty girl making it in Hollywood.

    The Marvel movies don’t do this right? Most of their cast is American in the more iconic roles right? Im thinking of some of the major roles & almost all went to Americans (the new Spider Man is under Sony, not Marvel so I’m not including it).

  27. Jess G. says:

    Xena… warrior princess?

    • Yeah, it does channel Xena pretty heavily, but I don’t hate it. I would like to see her a little more buff, though. I think they should have made her look more like an athlete and less like a model if they wanted to modernise WW a bit. She’s a bit soft. Why is it that only the make superheroes get to be buff? I’m pretty sure that if we gave the ladies a little muscle tone it wouldn’t scare away the target audience…

  28. The Voice says:

    She looks like Kim Kardashian, 5 surgeries ago. I look at costumes from a practical standpoint – wouldn’t it be easier to fight, run, pretty much do everything in flat boots? Yeah, and why aren’t get legs covered? At least her boobs aren’t hanging out. I’d be worried about my hair getting in the way. Who doesn’t tie their hair back when they’re working out? Sigh.

  29. Tania says:

    I think her outfit should have been more athletic and less sexy. It looks like a bit of a joke. Like I can’t take it seriously.

  30. Erm says:

    She just looks really cranky.

  31. MrsBPitt says:

    My question is…why is Batman bigger than Superman…other than that I will see this movie even if it sucks for the beefcake that is Cavill and Affleck…YUM!!!!!!

  32. P.J. says:

    “Does she look like a warrior?”

    YES. Her costume looks like eerily like Xena Warrior Princess and that’s the problem.

    Though I do not understand why one of the most classicly “All American” superheroes in our history could not have been cast in-house so to speak (There wasn’t enough talent in the enormous pool of insanely talented American actresses that I’m sure all tried out???), I almost could have been ok with it. But then on top of it they go and strip away all of the quintessential “American-ness” of the character’s awesome and infamous costume! WTH?

    When I first saw the photo yesterday I thought: “No. This has to be a mistake.” I just don’t get any of this. At all.

  33. kri says:

    Totally meh. I don’t care where an actress is from at all. It’s how she does the character that matters. That being said, i also saw KK resemblance and cannot unsee it. Ugh. I feel bad for not liking her looks for this reason.I am a bad person, I think.

  34. Mike says:

    Wonder Woman is strong because of magic bestowed by the gods not because she works out 24/7. I have no real issues with Gal Godot not being American (Neither was Wonder Woman) but I did expect them to cast somebody with a more muscular body. Jessica Biel would have been perfect as a body but she cannot act for shit so it would have been a mistake. We do not know if she evolves into the more classic Wonder Woman or not. This is only one shot. Also I assume Gal Gadot will continue to add muscle and size as the filming continues. I always liked the comic Wonder Woman and I think they will work hard to make her screen debut something that women can be proud of and that men can like as well. Have some faith. Everybody knows the stakes of having the first really serious female Superhero. I think Marvel will introduce Ms. Marvel in the Avengers just to counter the WW debut in DC.

  35. My 5 year old saw the picture on my screen and said “Cool! Wonder Woman” so I guess they did something right :)

  36. Fan says:

    Actually she looks good as Wonder Woman. She looks toned but still a woman. The costume looks like she came from the same planet of Superman. If she was Amazonian, don’t you think her costume should look more organic in nature not metallic? Ben Affleck looks misplaced. All I could think of was the movie Gigli and J-lo’s butt. My first thought was “what is he doing there?”.
    Henry Cavill is a blessing as a Superman. He fits the role perfectly.

  37. Miss M says:

    Just to make it cleR, Wonder Woman is a character from DC comics not marvel.

  38. ataylor says:

    They really should have just called up Lucy Lawless and asked her to takeover the role of Wonder Woman for this film…and asked her to bring in her old Xena: Warrior Princess costume with her since they obviously wanted to save some cash on the wardrobe department. Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman? Too puny. What a waste.

  39. gooner says:

    It’s always bugged me when female superheroes are put in heels (in this case, wedges). She can’t just kick ass like a boss, she absolutely HAS to be sexy while doing it. She needs to be able to run, jump, kick, etc and don’t heels kind of inhibit that? Bah.

  40. word says:

    Why do women superheros always have to show skin? The males are fully covered and in some cases don’t even have their faces exposed, yet the women have to be sexual. I don’t see any young girls be able to dress up like her for halloween, or at least I hope not.

    Also, why is she 5 shades darker in the costume pic compared to the pics of her with Affleck and the rest? What’s up with that? If they were looking for a woman with a certain skin color, why didn’t they hire one who naturally has that complexion?

    • 'P'enny says:

      this get’s my goat too, superhero women have to be half-naked, thankfully apart from comics we have had some decent female heroines that don’t walk around half naked. From Marion in Robin Hood or Angelina Jolie in that awful film… but i can remember she was covered up in cargo pants and long hair plait.

      But we do have Thor with naked arms, just need to put him in shorts and we are evens. :-D

  41. fynn says:

    Meryl Streep would have made the most believable Wonder Woman. ….No! I take that back..Meryl would have been the most amazing BATMAN!

    *Assumes the voice of Lana Kane from Archer*:

    Noooooooooope!

  43. Reece says:

    She looks like the Zack Synder version of Wonder Woman ie. every other chick in a ZS movie. *sigh*
    I keep going back and forth on this movie but I will still wait and see for final judgment.

  44. rtms77 says:

    WW is Photoshopped to beyond believable. Looking at Gadot at CC and she only looks mildly toned than she did when she started. As for the muted colors, well DC characters and movies have to be dark, because that means they are serious people with serious issue, with serious faces etc and yadda yadda who give a damn! It started with Nolan’s take on Batman and has festered on with the rest of the DC world they are making.

    As for the American symbols/colors for WW, well Cap America proved oversees audiences didn’t mind a hoot about the red white and blue display. And Marvel still muted that for the second movie and he still went back to his old costume in the end. So I don’t think it will hurt them in the future to make her costume more colorful . As for the sword etc, she has been depicted with this sort of costume and weapons in the last decade as it’s been undergoing changes.

    My big concern is how awkward and cold they all look to ward each other. Or at least Henry and Ben. And I feel so bad for Henry and understand why he would be awkward and cold. This was suppose to be his star making turn, three movies would make him bank and set him for life and give him a lift in the American market. Then Warner/DC screw him big time by making him the third rate hero in his own sequel! You get a Oscar winner buying his way into a another superhero role since his first one flopped, getting way more money and equal or higher billing than the supposed star of the movie. Than to add salt to the wound they bring in another superhero who everyone has been waiting to see on screen for decades thus taking even more focus away from Superman. Poor Henry can’t win. Henry must have signed the worst contract in Hollywood ever.

  45. sonalaceae (Nighty) says:

    That’s not WonderWoman…. Can’t be, I’m not American, but WW’s costume is very patriotic, just like Captain American’s.. Her costume looks like Xena’s, Shre-Ra or something of the sort, I would never say it was WW… :(
    As usual, american movie companies tend to manage to ruin classics… :(

  46. Mindy says:

    Won’t go into the fact that she does look like a Kardashian in the costume. Won’t say anything about the lack of ANY sort of expression on her face either. Won’t even say anything about the fact that the costume is closer to Xena than Wonder Woman.

    Nope… I just have to mention this – Has everyone forgotten just how much they all HATED the movie this is a SEQUEL TO?!?! No one I know liked Man of Steel (and I work in comics and a good chunk of my friends and collaborators were ANGRY about that film). Or has everyone out there suddenly developed Alzheimer’s?????

    • sigh((s)) says:

      I loved parts of it, and I hated parts of it. It had good potential, it just wasn’t realized. Was hoping the sequel would work it out, but I don’t have a very good feeling about it. They all look like they want to bolt or have a rumble. Very strange.

  47. Josefa says:

    I like the costume, actually. Perhaps they are making the character more appealing to non-American audiences? Most people I know are turned off by Cpt. America. Like, just the name is already a turn off. I know you use it as a short for “United States of America”, but “USA” does the same job without turning one country into a whole continent. I’m not the type to get too worked up on the use of words but that’s something that has always bothered me.

    Anyway, I’m deffo not watching this movie. I’ve always found DC superheroes to be terribly bland. Batman is the better one and I still find him rather boring. Other than Heath Ledger as Joker (may he RIP), I don’t think there has ever been anything I’ve found remotely interesting about DC films.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      DC rocks with their animated movies, they beat anything Marvel puts out in that area. Their live action, not at all. Nolan’s Batman isn’t canon to the actual world and there were some things I liked about it such as Crane being in it (but not what they did with the character) and Ledger’s Joker.

  48. Camil says:

    She looks beautiful but I think this movie will be a complete mess :s

  49. Stacy says:

    Sigh, I hoped it would be the traditional iconic red, white, and blue

  50. Kori says:

    She may be in the minority but my 19 year old who is a HUGE comic book fan and a die-hard feminist who is always going on about the lack of strong females in comic books (compared to the number of men) and their more woeful number in movies actually likes the actress and the costume. She doesn’t think it’s as sexy as she feared they would make it and she doesn’t mind the heeled boots if they’re ‘used to crush her enemy’s beneath them’. The lack of a traditional colour scheme doesn’t both her unduly–she thinks as long as it’s ‘warrior’ it’s fine. That her costume doesn’t depend on the red/white/blue/America thing like Capt. America and Superman. She thinks she may be on the skinny side for an Amazon but is waiting to see what bad-ass martial artistry she may bring out.

  51. moon says:

    This movie is starting to look like George Clooney’s trainwreck batman

  52. TOPgirl says:

    She does not look like the classy wonder woman I remember. I am not pleased.

  53. aquarius64 says:

    @FLORC – I hope that rumor about the WW transformation is not true. Twirling like a turbine? People are going to howl about that.

  54. Dommy Dearest says:

    Why can’t she be American? She’s not American in the comics. She’s an Amazon. A Goddess. Not bound to a certain region of the world.

  55. Emily C. says:

    Wonder Woman is Greek. She moved to America but was born in (a made-up fantasy part of) Greece. Her Greek roots are central to the character. Like Superman, she exists partly to make a point about immigrants. Namely: that they are what we are made of and will save us all. GREEK.

    Also, that look is very Xena, but it’s better than I feared it would be — while it’s sexy, it doesn’t scream “stripperiffic” to me. It actually looks, ahem, GREEK. Like it was inspired by what ancient Greek soldiers wore, as Xena’s costume was. Also, the woman wearing it is way too skinny. Would you cast a guy with hardly any muscles as Superman? No. Casting someone who looks like she’d break her teeny skinny little fingers if she tried to punch someone is completely wrong for Wonder Woman.

    But the fact that she doesn’t look what you apparently think of as “American” is good casting. And your harping on this is jingoistic. If you have to say “I don’t want to be X bad thing, but”, that means you’re being X bad thing and you know it. It’s particularly bad when you’re talking about an Amazon. You know. GREEK.

    • Josefa says:

      Hahaha. Love you for this. +1000!

    • tc says:

      Eh. That’s a pretty narrow definition of what it is to be an “American.” A central part of the American identity is dualism, and people that identify both with their (or their parents’) country of origin AND America are fairly common. The reason both Superman and Wonder Woman are quintessentially American is BECAUSE they come from other countries. They embody the immigrant’s experience, and prove that you don’t have to be born here to be one of us.

      Which is why it’s shitty that she’s not in red white and blue.

    • K says:

      God you sound so bitter. She is exactly the same height and size as Lynda carter was whenever she played wonder woman, (Lynda carter has said herself she was 5”9 and a UK size 8, same size as this girl) so how is she too skinny? paha im dying ”she’d break her teeny skinny little fingers” you must be a fatso.

  56. Lotta says:

    I don’t get why she should have been american, unless you mean someone who is native american, to be american is not ethic. You’re either of one specific country or a mix but unless you’re native american it doesn’t really say anything about your DNA if you say you’re an american. It just says where you were born.
    But I do agree on the costume… On the other hand I can see why this is a better choice: the US is not one of the most popular countries in the world right now and they want to sell tickets… to much patronism will just seem tireding in our eyes. You know like in movies when the world is threatened they just mention the US, because that is the world to most americans, but for us it’s just stupid.

  57. Megan says:

    If I were going to fight crime, I’d definitely wear a support bra.

  58. Anna says:

    …Then agan,Why did they have to add the America symbolism?WW is not America.She’s freek.If anything her costume should be blue and white.

    But anyway they DID add the amercan symbolism.The costume actually is dark red,i think silver and blue.Justtake out the brown filter and there you go…

    At comic con there was even a picture with the true colors more visible and she was welding a shield on that one.(No idea what happened to the picture)

  59. Franchise Dislike says:

    I think the industry has really lost its creative spirit in the past five years or so with these superhero, made-for-the-cash installments. I’m so over these franchises…they need to start treating us like adults, not children. The last batman was so overblown and waaay too grounded – yet, he still had the ridiculous suit and the bat mobile. They keep doing superhero mush-ups to reduce the business risk of bringing these mega-budget installments to the cinema. I prefer smart sci-fi like Tom Cruise does. The latest Captain America and X-Men are the last ones I will ever watch at the cinema (and I still want my money back); utterly mind-numbing drivel. (I’ll make an exception for the first Thor – Kenneth Branagh did that one and it had an interesting villan (Loki) and a Shakespearean melodrama feel to it.)

  60. Maria of MD says:

    Her costume looks like she’s ready to take on the Spartans or the Athenians on behalf of her Amazon Queen – like she came from the movie 300 and not comics. It could use more color, like Captain America’s costume.
    I know nothing about the actress. If she has a high little girl voice, she’s doomed.
    It’s a shame Lucy Lawless has aged out of this sort of role in that these type of action films have a lot of wear and tear to them. She would have been perfect.

  61. Madpoe says:

    The outfit looks like chocolate. She the amazon warrior for Willy Wonka or something. Sigh I have no interest in this movie the more I learn about it. But now I’m in the mood for ice cream.

  62. Mika302 says:

    WW had on red, white, blue and yellow. I think on this pic u need to take out the brown like filter to see more color. And i see comments about Linda Carter’s WW was classy, but her outfit was shlwed more than this…she just wore a bodysuit!!

  63. Lady D says:

    Charlene of Monaco has the perfect build for this role.

  64. Algernon says:

    Lbr, this could have been *way* worse. Have you seen Sucker Punch? I was expecting bad, and I got okay. I can live with okay.

    also, I agree with whoever said we’ll probably see her in her iconic uniform somewhere down the line, In Justice League, maybe.

  65. Izzy says:

    Ugh. If they didn’t want a star-spangled costume, would a little color have killed them? Seriously.

  66. tarheel says:

    Technically, Wonder Woman is NOT American.

    Having said that, the Gal Gadot casting was just wtf. It should have been Cobie Smulders or Gina Carano.

    Gal Gadot. w.t.f.

    • thewrongone says:

      I don’t understand why no one has mentioned my favorite for WW – Lena Heady.

      To look like someone who can kick ass & act the part of a mythical warrior princess who can make her male counterparts look… well not as great as they seem to be, in my mind no one could be better than her.

  67. Kate says:

    I’m torn on this, I love Wonder Woman but too often her true purpose and intent is missed so that she can be a “sexy warrior babe” for men. As for her romantic future? The only thing I’m really rooting for is that Diana and Lois Lane are partners and friends. They deserve that. I don’t mind Wonder Woman with Batman as per JLU but there is zero reason for that in her first film outing in 40 years. The less said about Wonder Woman and Superman the better. They work beautifully as best friends/siblings. Anything more is so cringeworthy to me. Lois and Diana as friends forever.

    Also, for those above…Superman was created by Jewish immigrants who grew up in Cleveland. He’s the ultimate adoption immigrant story. Lois Lane was inspired by the co-creator’s wife, Joanne Carter Siegel. She was the original model for Lois and Jerry Siegel fell in love with her and married her. It’s actually a really beautiful story.

  68. vv says:

    Meh. She’s too thin and the costume really screams Xena which isn’t a bad thing. I love Xena but I shouldn’t be thinking about Xena with all the hype built around the introduction of Wonder WOman on the big screen—and yet here I am, talking about Xena.

    And also reminiscing fondly about her. Mmm, Xena.

  69. Auntie Em says:

    The boots and headband are ridiculous, but I get the main components of the costume are going for the Amazon warrior princess look. Gal Gadot does not have much presence in this picture. She is pretty, but Meh. If they decide to go ahead with a Wonder Woman film after this, I hope they might consider Carla Gugino. She is neither tall nor in her twenties, but she has a ton of screen presence, and even in her nude and scantily clad get ups in “Sin City”, she still looked like she could kick someone’s ass.

    I do feel like this movie has so much bad press and sentiments already, that if they don’t blow us all away, it will be the death knell of all superhero films for a long time.

  70. Laura says:

    I think she looks amazing, much better than I was expecting when I first heard the news that she was going to be the new Wonder Woman, she looks tall, strong and very athletic .
    I don’t plan on watching the sequel, but I think Gal Gadot and her character are way more interesting than Cavill and Affleck, so I hope she does well in it.

  71. Jag says:

    Hate the heels!

    I like the costume, but it’s not Wonder Woman. Like others are saying, it’s a take-off from Xena.

    The reason the bosom covering is so high is because it’s mostly padding. If they had it lower, we would be able to see that she isn’t filling out that top. They are faking it to make her seem closer to the real Wonder Woman, imo.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      No, Xena copied what Wonder Woman was supposed to be. Wonder Woman was a warrior princess who came from Greek mytholoty. She was of Amazonian decent, but her original battles were aginst Nazis (WWII was going on) and greek villains. The whole stars and stripes thing was for Americans because we in the throws of WWII. Why would an Amazon warrior wear U.S. colors? This new costume is far more realistic, but we’re use to seeing her in red, white and blue. Sorry, I know this is so nerdy. What can I say, I grew up with an older brother who owned every comic book known to man.

  72. Goodnight says:

    This is fifty shades of cheap-Xena-knockoff.

    Bravo.

  73. Liz says:

    Is it really that hard to create a WW costume? I’ve seen better costumes than this during Halloween. Where’s the red, white and blue?

    Agreed that she’s pretty but forgettable. .

  74. Pumpkin Pie says:

    I liked Gal Gadot in Fast and Furious and I hope she will make a good WW.

  75. pnichols says:

    Wow Ben Affleck looks great! Props to him.

  76. Pants says:

    Xena Warrior Princess called, she wants her outfit back.

  77. Sisi says:

    well Snyder likes it when his actresses kneel are shot from slightly above and flip their hair back and staring seductively (about 20 of these shots in sucker punch) … so he couldn’t get away with any cleavage

    Actually, I think this costume is more befitting of Wonder Woman. She is suppose to be an Amazon warrior – not an American in armorless stars and stripes. I’m American and I love my country but I always wondered why comic books had Wonder Woman who is suppose to Amazonian wearing the U.S. colors? Made no sense.

    Useless information – Wonder Woman was created in the 1940′s during WWII by William Marsden. He wanted a super hero who fought for love and peach. His wife, Elizabeth, said then it needs to be a woman. To differentiate her from her male super-hero counterparts, she needed to fight without weapons and minimal violence – hence, no real weapons per se, but protective cuffs, an invisible plaine, a tiara (projectile-like) and a lasso that made bad guys tell the truth. BUT, he styled Wonder Women after his live-in mistress, Olive. He was a polygimist. The mistress must have been hotter than the first wife, but still, what a slap in the face!

    This looks a bit Xena Warrior Princess, the difference is that this chick doesn’t look like she could kick some serious arse,.
