Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Yeah that's true. They were attempting to turn Earth into Krypton after all, so it's possible there was enough time for at least some kryptonite to form under the surface.

It would definitely be a very clever and simple solution... which means it's probably not what we're going to get. Lol

Idk if Brian Azzerello and Cliff Chiang were in on what Gal Gadot's costume would look like, but take a lot at this image from New 52 WW #33

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

The costume really isn't anything like Gadot's. Hippolyta was turned into clay a long while ago. Her body was just reanimated in that pic, but its still clay, so that's why she's a reddish brown. There is no way its even slightly related to Gadot's completely different (in both design and color) costume. It's just a kind of generic amazonish style they've used since the beginning (she had the costume in issue 1, long before Gadot was even cast, I think), but this time the woman happens to now be living clay.

Well the greaves and striations on the chest armor resemble the pattern on Gadot's armor. The skirts are different sure and you can only reinvent the tiara so many different ways.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

If the costumes are similar, its just that the style is kind of generic. Hippolyta had the same clothes in the current WW run before even Man of Steel came out, so its definitely not based off of Gadot's costume, and I'd say that Gadot's costume wasn't based off of it. Its just a generic ancient greek-like Amazon style costume, no connection between the movie and comic.

Yeah, that's similar in a very generic way. I wouldn't call it "inspired by" at all. Wonder Woman herself has been depicted in outfits much closer to the movie version.

I thought they took inspiration from Xena more.

^ Naw. The only similarities between Gadot's and Lawless' suits are they are both brown. Xena's looks busy by comparison.

You can't be serious? The two costumes are almost identical.

Not really. They are both brown and have all the other attributes of Greek/Roman armor (greaves, chest armor, wrist guards and skirt), but outside of that Xena's costume has a lot more going on with it (extra accessories and what not).

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Yeah I'm not seeing the comparison either. They both have the same vaguely Greek/Roman feel, and a few similar accessories (gauntlets, chest armor, armored boots), but the design of each of those elements are all very different.

Within a second of first seeing the new Wonder Woman costume I went "Hey, that's Xena!". I'm really surprised that you two don't see it.

The look similar because they're riffing on the same source.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Rosamund Pike as Queen Andromeda had a similar style armor. The Greeco-Roman armor all have the same set of gear. The aesthetic of the armor changes depending who is the series /movie it appears in.





Xena's is the most extravagent since it includes those silver designs on the leather and silver pins on the leather skirt.
