[Movies] Batman vs. Superman Costumer Hints At Wonder Woman's Outfit

It's daunting for him...
The costume designer for Batman vs. Superman says that working on Wonder Woman's outfit was a "thrilling and slightly scary prospect." Michael Wilkinson told The Wrap that he felt a lot of pressure to get the costume right for the role, which will be played by Gal Gadot in the film.
He noted, "It's so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on-screen in her full glory. So what I do is I look at the history of how the character has been presented on the big-screen, and the small-screen, and in comic books, and graphic novels. We process it all. Then we kind of put that aside and work out what is right for our film, for the cinematic universe that our director Zack Snyder is putting together. We try and create a Wonder Woman that's relevant for today's audiences."
When asked if it would be realistic for her to be fighting crime in her outfit, he said, "Absolutely! I mean, you just have to look at the gladiators from ancient Rome, they did their thing in little loin clothes and shield….It works for Thor, it works for 300, so let's see what happens."
The film also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons; it will open on May 6th, 2016.
