As the DC Cinematic Universe grows, one of the most exciting elements of the movies will be seeing all of the classic comic book costumes adapted… and things are off to a great start in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. So far we’ve seen the outfits for the Dark Knight, the Man of Steel, Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and while certain fans have made select complaints, the reaction overall has been positive. The man who made these cinematic outfits is costume designer Michael Wilkinson, and he’s just revealed some great details about the new supersuits of the DC Universe.

People’s Choice recently had the chance to work with the filmmaker – who previously collaborated with Zack Snyder on 300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch, and Man of Steel - and while discussing the various costume designs for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice he made mention of some key details that you probably won’t notice in the film unless you’re really paying attention. There's some pretty great stuff here, so read on!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
How The Superman Suit Changed From Man Of Steel
At first glance, you might think that Henry Cavill’s costume in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is exactly the same as the one from 2013’s Man of Steel, but take it from the guy who designed both suits: they’re not identical. Michael Wilkinson admits that the changes are only slight, but that there is a reason for them. He explained
We streamlined plus sharpened the details of the costume a little to suit the more earthly (less alien) context of this film.

Surely there are already many fans out there who are already trying to spot the changes. They’re clearly not obvious, but we take Wilkinson’s word that they’re there.
