Michael Wilkinson, costume designer on the new Batman Vs. Superman movie, comments on the new Gal Gadot Wonder Woman costume that he is creating.

Wilkinson attended an Oscar Party where the offered the following details:

You know, I'm doing the next Superman and Batman film. I can't say much about it. We're all very excited. I designed the new Batsuit. I'm designing the new Wonder Woman costume. I'm tweaking the Superman suit. I'm glad you heard good buzz about it. 

Thought process going into Wonder Woman?

It's a thrilling and slightly scary prospect of course. It's so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on screen in her full glory. What I do is I look at the history of the character as has been presented on the big screen and small-screen and comic books and graphic novels - we process it all -  and then we kind of put that aside and work out what is right for our film, for the cinematic universe our director Zack Snyder is putting together, and we try to create a Wonder Woman relevant for today's audiences.

On previous Wonder Woman costumes being relevant:

Absolutely. I mean, you just have to look at the Gladiators from ancient Rome. They did their thing in little loin cloths with the shield.

It works for Thor. It worked for 300. So let's see what happens.

"Batman Vs Superman" has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
