Saturday, July 26, offered a first look at Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman outfit. And it stunned the crowd...in a good way.

DC Entertainment unveiled Wonder Woman's new look for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, July 26.


And as part of DC's Trinity with Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill), she looks fantastic.

The costume and character seems to be Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) with a dash of just reborn Xena (Lucy Lawless), which isn't completely horrible. And Gadot's body language resembles Greg Rucka's interpretation in The Hiketeia.

Wonder Woman's stance is strong, confident—ready to put a boot in Batman's face until he listens.

It's a stark reminder that Wonder Woman's a demigoddess with blessings by the Olympian Gods. She's not someone to really upset in this grim, dark world.


But the Washington Post's David Betancourt reminds audiences very little's been released about Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman. Pretty much all we know is her name is Diana Prince. Her origins and personality are a mystery, while fans wait for the movie's release in a little less than 2 years left. With one more San Deigo Comic-Con between now and release, 2015’s convention should offer a lot more information.

But that doesn't mean hints aren't available in the design.

Look closely at the knee plates of her boots and you'll find a cross. People upsetting her better start praying for her mercy. And the boots also resemble something female superheroes in the Bat family would wear. So maybe this Wondy's got a little more Cassandra Cain in her personality and a little less Babs Gordon.

Looking at the scene around her in annoyance, it's easy to see the steel in the Amazon's eyes—that snap of fire and anger. She's in a sea of destruction, trying to control her own need to be more mercenary and harsh. Note the clenched left fist. Superman's not the alien in a strange place.


While some may find the short skirt to be a problem, it calls to the typical Greek combat wear, covering without impeding any chance to win in a fight. Nothing to tangle up her legs-same reasoning that men get tights instead of dress pants.

Of course, the skirt's also somewhat canon in the comics.

In the 2012 New 52 reboot, the Wonder Woman comics show the princess wearing a skirt and knee-high, plated boots. Sound familiar? Plus, hot pants may not make a lot of sense nowadays. Even the iconic Lynda Carter wore a skirt briefly in the 1970s. This time the skirt's more battle ready, more protective. No need for some frilly stars and stripes here.


And as mentioned, there's a little more Xena in the sleek but ornate design—especially in the breastplate. Look the top of the plate, and you'll find the recognizable Wonder Woman eagle symbol close to her heart.

Sepia coloring makes it hard to see the true colors of the outfit, but clearly the colors are deep and true. Meanwhile, the fitted tiara’s more practical in a fight while the traditional tiara was worn with the point facing up.

Io9's Charlie Jane Anders shows an HD version of the amazing image.


When Batman Vs. Superman costume designer Michael Wilkinson spoke to The Wrap in March, he implied the cinematic direction of Thor's Lady Sif and 300’s leather and metal construction.

Is the skirt practical? Wilkinson says to "look at the gladiators from ancient Rome, they did their thing in little loin clothes and shield." Wrong ancient civilization but the two empires did borrow from each other in military strategy. And the new design does "create a Wonder Woman that’s relevant for today’s audiences.”


In a 1997 academic paper, psychologist Geoffery C. Bunn once described Wonder Woman's dominance and submission as "essential components of an ingenuous and passionately held vision for female emancipation."

William Moulton Marston's 20 years of study on academic and popular psychology ended up being "a philosophy of liberation," which led to the creation of Wonder Woman. Playing with social roles isn't just the chance to shatter some ceilings. It's also the chance to define femininity as one wants.


That's essentially what Wonder Woman presented in the comics.

From the early days, her lasso of truth held an edge of BSDM and titillation, but it also allowed Wonder Woman to remain in control of a situation. No one can run from the truth—and Wonder Woman is the embodiment of truth and justice.

Behind the sword in her right hand, the golden lasso hangs loosely on Wondy's hip. The threat's obvious: choose violence or honesty. Either way, this Wonder Woman's not going to be down for useless confrontations.

The look peaked the interest of fans and critics alike.


 

Look at any social media and there'll be a ton of discussions since this is the first glance at Gadot in costume. While the actress's expected to have a small cameo as Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, her inclusion helps in creating a foundation for the rumored upcoming Justice League movie.

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice will premiere on May 6, 2016.
