Is it just me, or do the costumes look like cheap plastic?

Nah, for cheap plastic go over to the Wonder Woman thread.
Now that costume looks cheap and plastic-tastic!!

I don't see where they're really that much worse than what you see in most of these kinds of movies.

I''m so sick of photoshopped posters lacking any innovation or imagination. These are the worst.

Click here for news of a possible cameo in Thor. There's a more spoilerific one at moviehole but I haven't linked to it as the very title of the article is a spoiler:

Re: THOR-starts shooting Jan2010: Updates, Rumors & Casting till relea

Any idea if "Thor" is getting a novelization? I've read no news of it. I saw that an Art book is being released on May 4 and there is a junior novel I think (same for Cap).

Having read the leaked script from a couple of months ago I can confirm that article is indeed not a rumor and

AFAIK there's no pretense on Wonder Woman's part that her costume is made of metal. In fact, Lynda Carter's was clearly gold lame fabric and mylar trim.

Really, the only thing that's kind of hard to buy with WW is the notion that a woman with any sense of style at all would ever have willingly worn the traditional costume.

I think somebody posted uptopic that there's supposed to be some kind of post-production attempt to create metallic specularity and reflections on the Asgardian armor. That, at least, would explain why a production like this has been willing to settle for such unconvincing outfits on the stage.

The outfits in those promotional images (which were done for Walmart or whatever, I guess), do have a sort of plastic sheen that is absent from the footage of the actual film. It's also different from the way the costumes looked even from set photos.

I basically agree. Wonder Woman was a man's idea of what a superior, idealized woman would be like, and she has an outfit to match.

Well, she was also an artistic design intended to fit the comic book medium and milieu of that era. You know, of the pre-WW II superhero set Batman's probably the only one whose outfit can be represented as anything other than silly without basic rethinking. Neutral colors, neutral colors.

Oh come on, Alan Scott's costume is clearly not silly.

Scott's costume was one of my favorites when I first encountered him in the pages of the Silver Age Green Lantern's comic. I really had a thing for capes on superhero outfits. IIRC, Scott's outfit was modernized just a little bit for his early Silver Age appearances.

I'm late to the game as a comics fan, but I enjoy the Justice Society in their mid-90s and beyond incarnation, so I love Alan. Even with his awesomely ridiculous costume.
