Much has already been said about Batsuit and now the costume of Gal Gadot's character Wonder Woman is making news.
Buzz is that Wonder Woman will have a small yet meaty role in the film and her character will be built on later in the upcoming "Justin League" film.
"Batman vs Superman" costume designer Michael Wilkinson suggested that Wonder Woman needs to have a strong screen presence and no compromise could be made when it comes to this iconic character.
"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," Wilkinson told The Wrap.
"It's thrilling and slightly scary prospect. 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," he added.
"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."
Meanwhile, Ben Affleck who plays the iconic role of Batman in "Man of Steel 2" has pushed the release of his directorial venture "Live By Night" to 2016 due to dates assigned to Snyder's project.
