First Look At Wonder Woman In Batman v Superman!

While comic book fans were both excited and a bit anxious when Wonder Woman was confirmed to be in Zack Snyder's upcoming highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flick, it seems DC and Warner Bros. put most fans at ease when they gave us our first look at the character at San Diego Comic Con today. Take a look for yourself if you haven't already.



My concerns are put to rest. Although I'm a bit bummed they didn't go with the iconic white stars against blue for the skirt, I'm not surprised that they went with a more classic and realistic Greek battle armor look and left it a brown or bronze leather color instead of the traditional gold, red, white and blue. It's acceptable, and figured they would go the route of staying truer to her Amazonian warrior roots while doing away with what could be considered the campy elements of Wonder Woman's outfit. 

She is based off the Amazons of Greek mythology after all, and they were a nation of all female warriors. This first look does allude that the island of Themyscira is inhabited by a bunch of badasses ready to lay some serious smack downs!

The only thing that barely irks me is the lack of color in the costume. I understand why Zack Snyder went with the more muted colors for the character's costume to give it the air of realism, but it may just be a little too muted and bland. At least the shade of a slightly more reddish leather color would've at least given the outfit some kind of color resemblance to the famous DC Comics' character. 

They did, however, manage to get the classic W-shaped eagle on top of the outfit. Have to admit, that's a nice touch of awesome, and much of the actual design is consistent with the comic character's comic book costume design as well!

All in all, though it doesn't quite scream Wonder Woman to me in my comic book fanboy frame of mind, the character's outfit looks pretty darn cool and Gal Gadot looks pretty friggin' hot as expected. But more so, the outfit does make her look like she's able to kick some serious butt on screen.

Things are looking good for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it looks like from her costume that Princess Diana as Wonder Woman is ready to kick some ass alongside the Dark Knight and Man of Steel in 2016! I, for one, am excited to see my favorite female comic book character finally brought to the big screen. So far so good!
