For months, there has been online chatter about when we will get our first look at the costumes worn by Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in the Batman vs. Superman movie. It has been widely expected that the suits will be revealed around the time filming begins, which was originally set for February. Now, it looks like we have to wait a little longer to see these costumes.
Forbes and Batman-On-Film writer Mark Hughes recently said that the Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman costumes will be unveiled very soon. However, he now states that, due to the production start date being pushed to March, the suits reveal has also been delayed a bit. He suggests the costumes will now be revealed in the second or third week of March, before or around the film begins shooting. Additionally, Hughes says that the Batman and Wonder Woman suits will be unveiled as magazine covers – but as official photo shoots, rather than mediocre Photoshopping. He didn’t say anything about the “tweaked” Superman costume, but the Man of Steel will probably be on one of these covers.
As for how exactly these costumes will look, that is still the subject of various rumors. Batman is said to have two suits in the Man of Steel sequel – his traditional grey costume, and a suit of armor a la Kingdom Come and The Dark Knight Returns. Wonder Woman’s look is also said to be armored, and is not the iconic bathing suit garb. And details are sketchy on Superman’s updated costume, but Kal-El is said to be sporting a Kingdom Come-esque hairstyle. While it looks like the wait for our first look at these costumes has gotten a little longer, it should be worth it. Stay tuned for more news as we have it. [Via Batman-News]
