Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
:/ so Superman gets an updated version of his original costume but wonder woman gets some sexualised leather get up?! OK can Superman Vs Batman get any lamer? Maybe I’m on my own here but I really don’t like this outfit at all.
DC really need to step it up if they are gonna compete with Marvel Cinematic tbh.
I have to agree. The model(actress?) looks amazing but DC need to step up their game. I mean I’m pretty sure Marvel is currently top dog in the movie department. I’m not sure about the comics because I don’t follow them.
But seriously DC… You can not overly sexualize a woman and still have fans… Look at black widow, Maria hill, Melinda may.
They don’t run around in skimpy little things.
I don’t read anything from DC tbh I looked but there aren’t many female lead titles in there that I could see. Marvel have Black Widow, Elektra, Storm, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel and She-Hulk this year alone not to mention a plethora of strong and interesting female characters in other books.
They really take their female audience seriously and are trying to tackle the issue of representation across the board but DC leave a lot to be desired. The best comic book producer next to Marvel has to be Image comics at the moment.
I just…she looks like she stepped out of a BDSM movie. Given the fact that they refuse to make a Wonder Woman movie because they feel people wouldn’t get it? You had a fricking TV show for gods sake so why the hell can’t you make a movie?! Worst excuse ever by the way, they’ve now seemingly reduced her to a side character and turned her into an object for fan boys to drool over. Not cool DC :/
I wouldn’t have much problem with it if they would at least give her some straps.
I’m a martial artist and fighting in a strapless top??? Yeah, no.
I’m guessing none of you have ever even SEEN Wonder Woman because
This is nothing compared to the wonder woman visuals we’ve been getting since she was introduced decades ago.
The costume is true to the character. The leather and metal? Considering she’s a character inspired by Greek Mythology, of course her outfit will reflect that. Her skirt is called a fustanella. MALE Greek soldiers wore that.
All I’m seeing here is “I don’t like Wonder Woman’s costume because it’s true to her classic design AND her Greek heritage!”
Sexualised in the way that Christian Bale is a sexualised version of Adam West?
Are you people honestly trying to tell me that Marvel movies don’t females sexualize their female characters?
like are you for real
How in earth is a leather catsuit more sexual than what Wonder Woman is wearing?
An argument can be made that Diana’s skirt is too short to be practical to fight in sure, but other than that are you serious?!
Do you want to know what traditional Ancient Greek armor looked like?
(images gotten from a quick google search)
Wonder Woman’s costume is literally the baby of the traditional Wonder Woman costume and Ancient Greek armour.
Leather does not equal sexualization. You think that it does? Go yell at the creative team of that new Batgirl design that everyone loves so much, in which the top is clearly marked to be leather.
First her body type, now her costume. For a group of people who want Diana in a movie so badly, you all seem terribly quick to rip it all apart.
