We already know that DC is working on a Wonder Woman movie, but how popular would the Amazonian princess be if she was running around saving the day in a glorified swimsuit? Lynda Carter was able to pull it off in the ’70s, but in this day and age of everyone getting bent out of shape over nothing, DC and Warner Bros. certainly need to take Diana’s costume into consideration as the company moves forward.
Is this the reason why we’re getting a new Wonder Woman costume now? Are we being prepped for Wonder Woman’s debut on the big screen? Would movie audiences embrace the new look? Would they even know there was a different costume? X-Men did it in their movie. So did/will Captain America. For better or worse both Superman and Batman had major changes to their costumes when they arrived in theaters, and nobody balked then. While the Wonder Woman costume may be short lived in the comics (there is another major company wide DC event coming soon), the new look isn’t as bad as it could have been. And for studios concerned about putting asses in seats, the reason for the change becomes more clear. For the rest of us, give it a year, and everything you know will never be the same – AGAIN!
