Fans can now get even better looks at the costumes for each of the Justice League team members. The film is one of the most ambitious comic book movies in history and is the second of two very big releases DC has planned for 2017, coming after Gal Gadot’s upcoming Wonder Woman solo film. Taking place relatively soon after the events of Batman v Superman, the film follows Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) and Diana Prince (Gadot) as they work to assemble the Justice League for the first time, recruiting iconic members like Barry Allen/The Flash (Ezra Miller), Victor Stone/Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Jason Momoa).
At this point, audiences have gotten to see at least brief glimpses of each of the team members in action in one of the previous DCEU films, except for Fisher’s Cyborg. Luckily, though, the latest Justice League trailer doesn’t waste any time showing fans some of the film’s many action shots, including moments where Fisher, Momoa, and Miller are all suited up in their superhero costumes for the entire world to see.
In case it wasn’t already clear just how much detail and work was put into the designs for each of the costumes too, these brand new photos from the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas should do the trick. THR was able to get up close and personal with Warner Bros.’ Justice League exhibit at the expo, which included the actual costumes for each of the five team members in glass cases, offering attendees a chance to truly see The Flash, Wonder Woman, Batman, etc. costumes from the film in person for likely the first time. Check out the photos down below.
It is interesting to see just how the look and feel of these costumes has changed over the past few years. Ben Affleck’s Batsuit in Justice League is notably lighter and more tactical than either of the suits he sported in Batman v Superman. In addition, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman costume is significantly more colorful and royal than the first image of him as the character that was revealed, while Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman look is one of the only ones to not change in any major or significant ways.
Out of everyone, The Flash and Cyborg’s designs are undeniably the most complex. The former’s design is not only covered in a vibrant, beautiful shade of red, but looks and feels like it was put together using different pieces of heavy duty tech equipment, further reinforcing the brilliance of Barry Allen even before he got his powers. Meanwhile, Cyborg’s looks understandably intricate and detailed, considering that a majority of the actual costume itself is put together and finished using special effects during the post-production process. But fans have never questioned whether or not the characters and visuals of Justice League will be aesthetically pleasing, and what the film’s success will really come down to, is if its story and writing manage to live up to its gorgeous visuals.
