Since the first official image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last year, we’ve been seeing a slew of leaked promo art of the Amazonian warrior. Each new image reveal brought with it another update to her costume; nothing drastic, but a nice add-on. It’s unclear in what capacity we’ll be seeing Diana Prince in the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up, but even if it’s minimal, could the character undergo a costume evolution?
The latest promo art, released by Umberto "El Mayimbe" Gonzalez on Instagram, shows Wonder Woman in a crotched pose, flaunting her signature protective arm stance. Compared to the official still of Diana, her costume here has a lot more color to it and is more akin to her comic book origins, minus the patriotic stars. Though, perhaps the color was simply muted and her costume will be more dynamic in the film. Here’s the original image for comparison purposes.
In addition to her lasso, we’ve been seeing how Wonder Woman’s costume will also feature holsters for a shield, which we’ve only seen in promo images, and sword.
Another major addition revealed earlier this month came in the form of a massive cape. Again, it’s unclear how much of Wonder Woman we’ll actually see in Batman v Superman, but these promo images might hint at slight costume modifications either in the film or down the road.
It’s also possible that some of these designs won’t make the final marketing cut. Warner Bros. has been pretty secretive about their superhero faceoff, which pits Batman (Ben Affleck) against Superman (Henry Cavill) in a story involving Lex Luthor and a wave of anti-Superman sentiments. The studio can always change its marketing tactics before the film hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
After all, there’s a lot to get through in this film. Not only will it set up the fight to come between two of DC’s most recognizable figures, it’ll also introduce Luthor and his devilish dealings and set up what’s to come with the Justice League universe down the road. Jason Momoa’s Aquaman was also revealed to appear in Batman v Superman, and Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg are also expected to pop up.
