There’s still some months to go until the world finally sees The Dark Knight take on The Man of Steel in the big screen when Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder unleash “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in theaters, but the world is steadily getting some more teases and in-depth information to the Zack Snyder directed follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel. With the New York Comic Con in full swing this weekend in NYC, DC All-Access has fans of the interwebz on point by giving a glimpse into the costumes used in the film that are going to be at DC’s NYCC booth – with costume designer Michael Wilkinson talking about the suits that actors Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot wear as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman respectively in the film.
Going into detail about the suits, Wilkinson calls his work on the DC Cinematic Universe treatment of the “Trinity” a labor of love, and talks about the intricate design put into constructing Superman’s suit for BvS, with Kryptonian inscriptions layered throughout the costume. The costume designer comments on how Batman looks like “A Mountain of Muscle”, with Ben Affleck’s physique giving a more than enough intimidating look to the Caped Crusader.
