pretty much there are only four types of comic book fans here on tumblr at this point
there are comic book fans in general
there are dc fans
there are marvel fans
and then there are the marvel fans who gotta make everything a competition but pretty much shit talks dc without even having a clue what’s going on with dc and is pretty much being an ignorant shit just to make marvel superior
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.
Why is is so easy for people to look down on DC for their movies and characters when Marvel isn’t perfect either? Honestly this is the best Wonder Woman could have looked. Are you kidding me, “wonder woman gets some sexualised leather get up?! OK can Superman Vs Batman get any lamer?” I seriously don’t understand how people can judge a movie based on costumes. I mean remember when the pictures of Evan Peters as Quicksilver came out? People HATED it. But when the movie came out everyone loved him. Why? BECAUSE OF HIS PERFORMANCE. So don’t sit there and judge the movie and DC just because they made a realistic Wonder Woman costume that doesn’t cover up her entire body. Because that’s not Wonder Woman. She is a warrior, so of course she is going to be wearing Greek-inspired armor. Wait until the movie comes out before you go out there and say the movie/character is lame just because YOU don’t truly understand what sexualized means or the true roots of the character and think the costume is a representation of the movie itself.
For all the ladies who couldn’t attend Comic-Con last night, this is what you missed
I love all the ways this movie shows the soldiers gradually and steadily embracing Supes as one of their own.
First, when one of the Army rangers deployed at Smallville questioning Colonel Hardy’s orders, if they really should take down the “guy in blue” as well. Then, afterwards when Clark emerged from the rubble in that fifth gif, the rangers slowly lowering their weapons and the Colonel himself affirming that “this man is not our enemy”.
And then of course, the very matter-of-fact way that Norad officer informed General Swanwick that the Colonel and his men had “Superman in tow”, like they’ve been codenaming and calling him that since forever. The General’s incredulous face in that first gif is a delight to behold.
I know it’s usually Lois who names him publicly as Superman, but I also like this take in the movie. It’s such a great callback to one of my favorite Superman characterizations in the comics too, as an army commander & general during the World of New Krypton arc.
The best part is that Lois DID name him. She started to say it during the reverse interrogation but got cut off. I’m pretty sure that once she met back up with Clark and they went (together) with the baby spacecraft to the military to explain their plan, that that’s how she announced him. And of course the soldiers would pick that up. That’s what they’re calling him: Superman.
Guys, I’m currently at the DC TV Panel at Comic-Con, and RA’S AL GHUL IS THE MAIN VILLAIN OF SEASON 3 OF ARROW!
THE TRINITY IS FINALLY HERE
