Followers of Surprise Surprise had been little question happy to study that the Amazons warriors can be return in Justice League. Nonetheless, that glee could have morphed to anger from some after they noticed what the soldiers can be sporting. There’s been some controversy over the costumes for the Amazons in Justice League, which has them in midriff revealing armor that they weren’t sporting in Surprise Girl. Folks had been fast to cry foul over what appears to be over-sexualizing feminine characters, however Michael Wilkinson, the Justice League costume designer, says that the armor is completely different from Surprise Girl as a result of the 2 films happen in numerous time durations. As he put it:
For almost all of display screen time in Justice League, the Amazons seem in 2017: 100 years after the occasions of the Surprise Girl movie. We wished to indicate the passage time by having a slight growth of their armor, so among the strains and particulars are completely different.
Michael Wilkinson, alongside Surprise Girl designer Lindy Hemming, was chargeable for crafting the Amazonian armor seen in Justice League. The 2 labored collectively to make it possible for the Amazonian costumes had been in the identical “visible language” between the 2 movies. Why then are the Justice League costumes a lot much less sensible? Whereas speaking to Fashionista, Wilkinson addressed the armor controversy and revealed the distinction is essentially as a result of time interval. Surprise Girl takes place 100 years prior to now, whereas Justice League is within the current. Thus there are some “slight developments” within the armor.
What I believe Wilkinson is referring to right here is an early scene in Justice League, during which the Amazons defend their Mom Field from Steppenwolf in 2017. The armor on this scene in roughly just like Surprise Girl, however the extra revealing armor really comes from a flashback sequence. Set within the distant past, the scene exhibits the Amazon teaming up with Atlanteans and mankind to defeat Steppenwolf the primary time he tried to overcome Earth. As to why this armor covers up much less of their our bodies, here is what Wilkinson needed to say:
Zack wished a extra primal really feel. So we harkened again to a time the place armor was extra primitive, steel was much less developed, and the Amazons had a extra tribal really feel.
