Exactly.

Also, it looks like WW is going strapless, as she was in the beginning.

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

Wonder Woman sometimes sporting Greco-Roman armor goes back at least as far as the Perez reboot ca. 1986, before Xena or the other examples posted here. She also notably wore armor in Kingdom Come.

No. You've simply presented a different take on the character--much like the myriad examples of comic book takes on Superman that I would not let my 8 year old read, but that I find thoroughly entertaining.

That YOU don't like the MoS take on Superman does NOT mean it's "screwed up". It means YOU didn't like it. Then again, an audience member has no right demand a film or any other artistic endeavour be satisfactory. He has the right to voice displeasure after the fact, not a right to satisfaction itself.

Yeah, no shit. I thought that was obvious and went without saying.

Every scrap of the little kid friendly Superman canon (around 80 years worth) still exists. That should be plenty of adventures to hold them over while they grow age appropriate for MOS and beyond.

Or until there's a movie that's worth watching.

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

I'm not sure the costume is going to be as brown in the movie as it looks in that picture. The entire picture has a sepia cast to it, I'm reasonably certain it will lean more towards red and blue on screen.

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

Zack Snyder has sepia fetish


If you include the recent WW photo, and work your way back you get this:

Man of Steel: The scenes on Krypton and the dream sequence come to mind


Suckerpunch


Watchmen: Vietnam, scenes with Silk Spectre II and Rorscach


300: The whole movie


Dawn of the Dead


I can't recall is Legend of the Guardians had sepia, probably though.

This color adjusted version of the pic would seem to bear that out. The colors are still muted, but the chest plate is red and the skirt section is blue.

With a more natural skin tone, you can kind of get a better idea of the real color I think:

First look(s) at Affleck onset as Bruce Wayne:

Onset video of Bruce Wayne (mild spoilers), though not necessarily Affleck:

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

And the latest story rumor is that WW has actually been operating quietly in the real world for a while (presumably only as Diana), and that the reason no one ever mentioned Batman in MOS is because he's still only regarded as an urban legend, and had never even been photographed. Which is the explanation I was kind of expecting them to go with.

I enjoy how Bruce Wayne saved someone in that clip. Way to upstage Superman.
