Wonder Woman Batman Superman Batman v Superman Wonder Woman Costume Reveal Tomorrow? [Updated]

[UPDATE: False alarm – the announcement was for a new Batman exhibit. Scroll for details.]

The past week saw a great deal of fandom attention trained on Marvel and their attempt to replace the outgoing Edgar Wright as director of Ant-ManWith Peyton Reed now signed on to direct and Scott Derrickson at the helm of Doctor Strange, Marvel will likely switch their focus back to their August launch of Guardians of the Galaxy, and we now switch ours to Warner Bros. Man of Steel follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Despite many a rumor about the development of the DC Cinematic Universe – including one that suggests Emily Blunt is circling the role of Catwoman and one about the updated version of Lex Luthor’s LexCorp – the only major reveal we’ve had from BvS so far was our first look at new Batman Ben Affleck’s costume.

With Batman’s new look in mind, we’ve speculated on what to expect from the new film’s updated superhero outfits, and as it happens Warner Bros. has spent several days teasing a big Batman v Superman reveal along those lines via Twitter (hat tip to CBM).

On June 5th, there was this very clear signal:

Then three tweets on June 6th, starting with a look at a certain iconic costume, flanked by two others:

This was followed by the clear indication of what the reveal is not about:

After some chatter between @WarnerBrosTours and fans, the date of the big reveal was given:

We’ve seen set photos of new Wonder Woman Gal Gadot in street clothes and have heard costume designer Michael Wilkinson talk about Princess Diana’s ‘relevant’ costume. Given the trio of Man of Steel costumes featured above, it stands to reason that this Monday we’ll get see see either all three of our new generation of iconic DC heroes together or a look at Wonder Woman by herself.

Then again, these teases are coming NOT from Warners’ PR department, but from the Warner Bros. studio tour Twitter portal – so it could just be a new attraction on the tour.

Considering Wonder Woman’s status as probably the most famous female superhero in the history of comic books, this very first cinematic incarnation of the character has been under a great deal of scrutiny. Director Zack Snyder is acutely aware of the significance of having Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman together on the big screen, and while some fans have leveled their criticism on whether or not Gal Gadot can match her character’s physicality, Gadot herself is up to the challenge.

As evidenced in an otherwise technically-accomplished Wonder Woman fan film, a strictly traditional approach to the heroine’s costume is extremely problematic for modern audiences. The costumers for Batman v Superman have an unenviable task of finding a way to please as many fans as possible as they respect the core of an iconic comic book character, all while trying not to offend anyone.

We know that Warners has 11 DC movies in some form of development, and we expect to see a solo Wonder Woman film in theaters (either before or after the Justice League film). It’s practically a given that the Princess Diana’s new look won’t please everyone, but we’re certainly excited to see what Snyder and company have come up with.

Hopefully, we’ll all find out what Warner Bros. has up their sleeve on Monday, June 9th.

UPDATE: The Warner Bros. Studio VIP Tours announced a new Batman exhibit. For more info, go here.

  1. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice seem off to me, because I’ve thought subtitles was meant to show it’s a sequel of a movie with the same title. So, it should be Man of Steel: Dawn of Justice or just Batman v. Superman. But, they just want to capitalize off that Batman is in the movie and it’s a prequel to a Justice League Film.

    • But it’s not a sequel to the Man of Steel movie so the name is perfect for a prequel….. but also I think Dawn of Justice was a better title than Batman vs Superman

    • But it’s not a sequel to the Man of Steel movie so the name is perfect for a prequel….. but also I think Dawn of Justice alone was a better title than Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

  2. Maybe I’m missing something. But how are they getting Wonder Woman from those hints?

    • wonder woman don’t have that big role. but her part is very important. but not big enough to mention in title. this is my theory. and that ‘justice’ part hint ww,and other jl members. like cyborg.

  3. Ha!
    as long as the ben Affleck as batman joke is believed this film has no credibility!

    • you are one of them who blindly hate. i don’t think you have enough information and knowledge about ben. he is a academy (oscar) and golden globe winning artist. he is now a serious actor. did you see his current health condition? if not,then check recent photos.

      if you hate or don’t like anything then keep reasons behind your hate.

  4. Can we please have a Wonder Woman with blue eyes and actual breasts as she’s been depicted in the comics, not the scrawny brown-eyed girl they decided to cast?

  5. I really hope the costume reveal (if it is) will make me accept Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, I don’t mind her in the role much, but I had similar fears regarding Ben Affleck as Batman, but since I saw the Batsuit, I’m feeling optimistic about the Bat, and I wanna feel the same way about Diana, and oh I don’t want her in short-shorts either.

  6. I hope so! I’d love to see WW costume. DC needs to put out more WW content both in animation and live action. She’s an awesome character.

  7. I can’t wait to see how much they push up her rack to make it look like she has one.

  8. Hohoho, man that must be the only thing i need to see before shutting myself from Supes vs Bats news until i watch the movie. Bring it on WB bring it on!

  9. Batman vs Superman: World’s Finest
    Man of Steel: Trinity
    heck even Dawn of Justice alone, sounds better than Batman V. Superman

  10. Ok, so where’s the big reveal today? It’s already late afternoon. I figured it would be around noontime somewhere. Hope this isn’t a false rumor or a “whoops, sorry, we aren’t ready yet”.

    • Yeah, still no word and it shows your comment was an hour ago. I did see something go up from @BatmanUniverse about a batman exhibit. It had a picture of that statue from the end of TDKR and the Burton Batmobile. Weird b/c, if that was the announcement, it didn’t come from warner bros studios, and their twitter page hasn’t updated.

      I’ve got a sad feeling about this…

  11. I think the Wonder Woman costume is going to sound like a great idea.

  12. I keep seeing people saying or thinking that the V. is representative of it being a fight movie in terms of a physical fight but Batman cannot beat Superman and the film makers have already verified that in this grounded world of superheroes the man that can knock down skyscrapers with a flick of his finger is not going to lies a fistfight with any one man.

    When you look at a court case the placement is specific in that the defendants name comes second. The plaintiffs name in turn comes first and this is going to be a situation where there is fallout of anger from the destruction that superman caused in the 1st movie as well as the aspect of fear mankind would have if a god like man suddenly appeared. Superman will be required to defend himself and the man that will act in essence as the prosecutor or plaintiff is batman.

    It is also obvious that the use of the word justice in the title is foreshadowing the JL movie but does no one realize that it has a more primary definition in applying it to this movie in the fact that the main title is set up in the same manner as a case the justice department would bring against someone who they felt was guilty of a crime.

    • Didn’t think of it like that, but I believe you’re spot on.

  13. I am thinking this is about Supergirl, Catwoman, or a young female Robin (just like in Frank Miller’s book). The two latter have masks though I don’t know why Superman would need to protect any of them.
    Considering it is coming from the Tour group it may not relate to the movie at all.

    • This stinks!

    • Knew it.

    • Is that the batbus they will use in the movie???oh yeah…so excited…

  14. Hahahahahah epic mega troll next level maneuver but again it’s from warnerbros TOURS what else you would expect.

  15. Why on earth would he tour department of WB know anything about a costume reveal?

    • It was the WBTour tweeting all along. It never had anything to do with BvS.

      • but how they tease,which kind of words they used that totally indicate bvs related announcement. they cheat! who did it he deserve a slap. they totally cheat us! it take their image down. they did nothing to earn respect or believe. :-(

  16. Ugh.

  17. Where is this big reveal ?

  18. So the big reveal was about a new Batman exhibit and after finally reading the tweets, it looks like it never had anything to do with the new Wonder Woman costume. I guess this article was nothing more then wishful thinking.

  19. Lame.

  20. They should wait until they the last sequel call that dawn of justice because of justice League

  21. Dawn of Justice, really?
    Why not just name it Trinity?
    It is a Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman movie right?
    Just call it trinity and keep geeks happy.

  22. In my opinion they should of got someone like Lynn Collins to play Wonder Woman
