Twitter Is Angry “Justice League” Changed the Amazon Costumes After “Wonder Woman”
Wonder Woman was a huge hit, and people have been looking forward to the second installment since it was announced. But before we get to see another Gal-power movie (lol), she’ll be gracing the silver screen as Diana Prince in Justice League. And while she looks basically the same, her fellow Amazons look quite a bit different.
In Wonder Woman, the warrior women wore metal plated armor into battle — armor that actually looks like it might offer some protection against steel. But in new photos from the set of Justice League, their garb is substantially… less than there was before.
Many users on Twitter are frustrated with Michael Wilkinson, the film’s costume designer, and Zack Snyder, the director, claiming that the new armor is sexist.
Others, however, point out that the part in JL involving the Amazons happened thousands of years before we see them in WW, so it’s possible that the ladies just got better at making their armor over the millennia. A few also said that many ancient warriors fought with even less covering their bodies.
Do you think the armor is sexist? Tell us @BritandCo!
