Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
:/ so Superman gets an updated version of his original costume but wonder woman gets some sexualised leather get up?! OK can Superman Vs Batman get any lamer? Maybe I’m on my own here but I really don’t like this outfit at all.
DC really need to step it up if they are gonna compete with Marvel Cinematic tbh.
I have to agree. The model(actress?) looks amazing but DC need to step up their game. I mean I’m pretty sure Marvel is currently top dog in the movie department. I’m not sure about the comics because I don’t follow them.
But seriously DC… You can not overly sexualize a woman and still have fans… Look at black widow, Maria hill, Melinda may.
They don’t run around in skimpy little things.
I don’t read anything from DC tbh I looked but there aren’t many female lead titles in there that I could see. Marvel have Black Widow, Elektra, Storm, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel and She-Hulk this year alone not to mention a plethora of strong and interesting female characters in other books.
They really take their female audience seriously and are trying to tackle the issue of representation across the board but DC leave a lot to be desired. The best comic book producer next to Marvel has to be Image comics at the moment.
I just…she looks like she stepped out of a BDSM movie. Given the fact that they refuse to make a Wonder Woman movie because they feel people wouldn’t get it? You had a fricking TV show for gods sake so why the hell can’t you make a movie?! Worst excuse ever by the way, they’ve now seemingly reduced her to a side character and turned her into an object for fan boys to drool over. Not cool DC :/
I wouldn’t have much problem with it if they would at least give her some straps.
I’m a martial artist and fighting in a strapless top??? Yeah, no.
I’m guessing none of you have ever even SEEN Wonder Woman because
This is nothing compared to the wonder woman visuals we’ve been getting since she was introduced decades ago.
The costume is true to the character. The leather and metal? Considering she’s a character inspired by Greek Mythology, of course her outfit will reflect that. Her skirt is called a fustanella. MALE Greek soldiers wore that.
All I’m seeing here is “I don’t like Wonder Woman’s costume because it’s true to her classic design AND her Greek heritage!”
Sexualised in the way that Christian Bale is a sexualised version of Adam West?
Are you people honestly trying to tell me that Marvel movies don’t sexualize their female characters?
like are you for real
How in earth is a leather catsuit more sexual than what Wonder Woman is wearing?
An argument can be made that Diana’s skirt is too short to be practical to fight in sure, but other than that are you serious?!
Do you want to know what traditional Ancient Greek armor looked like?
(images gotten from a quick google search)
Wonder Woman’s costume is literally the baby of the traditional Wonder Woman costume and Ancient Greek armour.
Leather does not equal sexualization. You think that it does? Go yell at the creative team of that new Batgirl design that everyone loves so much, in which the top is clearly marked to be leather.
First her body type, now her costume. For a group of people who want Diana in a movie so badly, you all seem terribly quick to rip it all apart.
I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.
She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)
And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.
how are you getting that much momentum on the third kick
Because of swinging that head around real fast. Same effect as a whip.
This is super badass, goddang.
These are so hard to pull off
I like his solid landing on his left foot.
its the notion of boycotts
you wanna know why the bus boycotts of the civil rights movement were so successful?
because an alternative black run transportation system was created for those who couldn’t walk to work or whatever they had to go
I think it’s interesting how many iconic X-Men characters started out as bad guys in other people’s books.
Gambit gets really pissed when people call Laura X-23. X is an alright pet-name, but X-23 is crossing the line.
Gambit is more generous than I am. Even “X” pisses me off.
Logan, due to the amount of time spent in Japan, and other countries in general, has a love of anime and manga. And once Jubilee found out, she made home form a fanclub. It has many members, including Jean Grey.
I am now envisioning Logan, Jubilee, Jean, Rogue and Gambit, and friends watching Fairy Tail. And they’re watching the episode where Cana tells Gildarts that he’s her father and Gildarts starts trying to figure out who the mother was and start rattling off names, and everyone looks at Gambit. Gambit points at Logan and says “Don’t look at me. Logan’s the one with the long list of illegitimate children”.and someone else replies “But Cana has card magic”.
