'Wonder Woman' Fans Aren't Happy With This Costume Change In 'Justice League'

When Wonder Woman was released earlier this year, it really changed the game in terms of female representation in superhero movies. Gal Gadot kicked serious butt as the titular character, and the rest of the women in the film—including Robin Wright as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince’s aunt, and the other Amazonian warriors—had an emphasis on being strong over sexy.

Wonder Woman fans aren't happy that the Amazonian warriors appear to have skimpier, less protective costumes in Justice League.: Wonder Woman Amazonian women © Provided by Bauer Media Pty Ltd Wonder Woman Amazonian women There were a few factors that led to this wonderful portrayal of women, including the fact that it was directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins), and had a woman in charge of the costumes (Lindy Hemming).

So, it will be super exciting to see Wonder Woman back on the big screen in the upcoming Justice League, where she’ll be joined by some other iconic comic book characters: Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

The Amazonian warriors will also make an appearance—but while there’s general excitement about seeing these women back on the big screen, there’s some controversy surrounding a costume change.

It was brought to everyone’s attention by Twitter user @Rosgakori, who posted side-by-side comparison photos of the Amazonian warriors in Wonder Woman and how they will allegedly look in Justice League.

“In case you wonder: Here's a picture of how the Amazons looked in Wonder Woman...next to pic how they look in Justice League. First designed by Lindy Hemming, second by Michael Wilkinson,” @Rosgakori wrote. “Some steps backwards, methinks.”

In Wonder Woman, the warriors wore armour plates that completely covered their stomachs (safety first, right?). In Justice League, the warriors’ abs are on full display, and the costumes are more on the sexy side. It was also noted in the tweet that a man took over the costume design for Justice League.

While plenty of people expressed their disappointment at Justice League’s direction, one Twitter user said the skimpier outfits may represent how the Amazonian warriors looked before the events that took place in Wonder Woman.

“To be fair, it’s possible that the scene in which we see the Amazons in JL takes place in the distant past, as implied by the trailers. In that case, they would have had to change the looks,” wrote @ElmerSt237.

Another Twitter user pointed out that Wonder Woman also included warriors who showed more skin.

So yes, this could be making a mountain out of a molehill, and we should reserve full judgement until we see the whole film.

The most important thing is that Wonder Woman’s character, and the Amazonians, remain as strong and kick-ass as she was in her standalone film.
