Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
:/ so Superman gets an updated version of his original costume but wonder woman gets some sexualised leather get up?! OK can Superman Vs Batman get any lamer? Maybe I’m on my own here but I really don’t like this outfit at all.
DC really need to step it up if they are gonna compete with Marvel Cinematic tbh.
I have to agree. The model(actress?) looks amazing but DC need to step up their game. I mean I’m pretty sure Marvel is currently top dog in the movie department. I’m not sure about the comics because I don’t follow them.
But seriously DC… You can not overly sexualize a woman and still have fans… Look at black widow, Maria hill, Melinda may.
They don’t run around in skimpy little things.
I don’t read anything from DC tbh I looked but there aren’t many female lead titles in there that I could see. Marvel have Black Widow, Elektra, Storm, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel and She-Hulk this year alone not to mention a plethora of strong and interesting female characters in other books.
They really take their female audience seriously and are trying to tackle the issue of representation across the board but DC leave a lot to be desired. The best comic book producer next to Marvel has to be Image comics at the moment.
I just…she looks like she stepped out of a BDSM movie. Given the fact that they refuse to make a Wonder Woman movie because they feel people wouldn’t get it? You had a fricking TV show for gods sake so why the hell can’t you make a movie?! Worst excuse ever by the way, they’ve now seemingly reduced her to a side character and turned her into an object for fan boys to drool over. Not cool DC :/
I wouldn’t have much problem with it if they would at least give her some straps.
I’m a martial artist and fighting in a strapless top??? Yeah, no.
I’m guessing none of you have ever even SEEN Wonder Woman because
This is nothing compared to the wonder woman visuals we’ve been getting since she was introduced decades ago.
The costume is true to the character. The leather and metal? Considering she’s a character inspired by Greek Mythology, of course her outfit will reflect that. Her skirt is called a fustanella. MALE Greek soldiers wore that.
All I’m seeing here is “I don’t like Wonder Woman’s costume because it’s true to her classic design AND her Greek heritage!”
Sexualised in the way that Christian Bale is a sexualised version of Adam West?
Are you people honestly trying to tell me that Marvel movies don’t females sexualize their female characters?
like are you for real
How in earth is a leather catsuit more sexual than what Wonder Woman is wearing?
An argument can be made that Diana’s skirt is too short to be practical to fight in sure, but other than that are you serious?!
Do you want to know what traditional Ancient Greek armor looked like?
(images gotten from a quick google search)
Wonder Woman’s costume is literally the baby of the traditional Wonder Woman costume and Ancient Greek armour.
Leather does not equal sexualization. You think that it does? Go yell at the creative team of that new Batgirl design that everyone loves so much, in which the top is clearly marked to be leather.
First her body type, now her costume. For a group of people who want Diana in a movie so badly, you all seem terribly quick to rip it all apart.
guess what!! you can be bisexual and not be hateful of non-binary people! it just means you don’t want to fuck them! calm down!
Except Bisexuals absolutely can and often do find non-binary people attractive. Calm down.

Man of Steel had one of the healthiest approaches to masculinity yet to be seen in this film genre. Clark’s brand of masculinity is non-traditional. It doesn’t involve proving his physical prowess (he doesn’t have to) and it doesn’t involve needless violence. When he loses his head, he quickly regains it because the entire purpose of the Kents is to make sure the most powerful man in the world doesn’t end up some kind of flighty loose-cannon. In Returns, we do see Clark trying to problem solve and use his words, but when Batman literally won’t hear him, he is far too easily provoked to anger. To not understand how serious unchained rage is on this character is to seriously misunderstand not only his motives but the motives of the universe constructed in MoS.
Batman, on the other hand, has somehow magically transformed from one of the most dependable and morally sound characters to wear a cape, to everything that detractors always said he was, an unstable vigilante whose reputation and sense of manhood are so fragile that every action is turned away from a noble attempt to save his city and toward some maniacal quest for glory. This is not a characterization in a vacuum, in fact, this seems to be Miller’s go-to for Batman. After all, he is the guy who coined, “I’m the goddamn Batman.” The worst part though, is the slug-fest, which besides being a another pretty solid example of a character who knows better using poor Clark as an executioner, includes Batman telling Clark, “—it’s way past time you learned—what it means—to be a man.” In this case, Miller makes it clear that the definition of “being a man” involves throwing punches and bleeding from the face, a definition that is so worn out that it’s laughable. Who would have actually thought a fight between these two great men would actually be so easily translated into THIS? Or THIS? The last thing DC needs to boost its image is a protracted scene of their two heavy-hitters behaving like overgrown nine-year-olds.
This is the same man.
This works quite nicely at debunking the “beefcake guys in comics are objectified for women just like women in comics are for men!” imo. On the left: a magazine tailored for a male audience, showing him in full beefcake-type mode with headlines about how you, too, can look like this. On the right: a magazine tailored for a female audience, which has a headline about romance and shows him looking more or less like a normal dude.
Tell me again how comic book guys are designed for female sexual enjoyment, completely equivalent to anatomically-improbable spines and giant tits with their own individual centers of gravity, and totes aren’t just male power fantasies.
Women don’t treat men the way men treat women.
it’s also worth noting that despite all the geeks complaining about women’s impossible standards, the fantasy on the right sets a really really easy low bar to meet:
"cool clean friendly non-aggressive man who will cook a food for u"
yep what an unfair standard to be subjected to
Well, this is embarrassing

….is it just me or does the porno version outfit not only look WAY BETTER crafted and prettier, the actress also has more muscles, a nicer fitting chest piece and a waaay more fitting body type and skin tone.
Also the porno version doesn’t look more “feminine”/more sexy whatever.
That… is EMBARASSING
the “official” one looks like a really bad Halloween costume
I mean fuck the porno one has bigger wrist cuff I REPEATE: BIGGER WRIST CUFFS PORNO WOMAN IS BETTER DRESSED TO KICK ASS *cries*
can someone contact the designer of the porno
clearly he/she knows how a womans body works.
It’s embarrassing when the official looks a like a porn and the porn looks like the official thing.
The thing that makes me stunned the most is that even the boobs of the porn version are cupped and held in better by her clothing than those of the official thing…
The moment a porn movie treats the boobs of a woman with more subtlety than a big name production, some staff changes are in order.
What both fascinates and disturbs me the most about these is the body language and facial expression.
The “official” TV version looks passive, slightly confused, her pose is sort of ambiguous and floppy. She’s waiting for the viewer to do something before she reacts. The XXX version looks determined and fierce, and is taking literally 0% of your shit.
One of these Wonder Women looks like a sex toy, and it’s not the pornographic one.
I’m laughing hysterically.
How bad can your costume department fuck up when a PORN PARODY has better looking costumes? Fuckin’ A.
Are we taking for granted here that Wonder Woman was conceptualized as a fierce-ass domme superhero? I mean, the disparity in how much effort and money was put into these costumes is surprising and embarrassing, but the idea that porn understands Wonder Woman better than a bunch of uppity Puritan straight white TV execs doesn’t shock me.
