I loved the first movie. I had (and still have) high hopes for the sequel. But I don't like what I'm seeing here at all.

There is nothing amazonian about it, looks more like something from a Thor film

the outfit looks nothing like wonderwoman, she had other outfits, but they looked like her original outfit. Is there some need to cover her body? Nothing about this looks 'Mediterranean'

i hope this has some explanation that makes it a reasonable choice. One thing that gets me in some movies is when something looks like it was designed to look some way as opposed to being designed to serve a function. There is a quote by George Lucas about that (I think in one of the Phantom Menace docs)

Being a die-hard civil rights champion,
Being a die-hard libertarian,
Sometimes I have to defend
that which I find distasteful.

What about her black biker shorts outfit with the jean jacket from the 1990s? Superman had a black costume during that time too. There was also a period when Superman split into 2 and one had a red outfit and the other a blue outfit.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Wonder Woman 1984's New Costume Explained: Why Does Diana Need Armor?

by Andrew Dyce– on Jun 06, 2019 in SR Originals

https://screenrant.com/wo...explained/

The release of Wonder Woman 1984 is still a year away, but the movie's newest poster has sent audiences into a frenzy. It's colorful, it's bold, it's confident... and it's raising the question: What's the deal with Wonder Woman's new golden armor?

At least, we assume it's golden, since the shifting kaleidoscope style makes it hard to tell for sure. But within minutes of the poster revealing star Gal Gadot in a suit of armor as opposed to her iconic costume, fans were speculating that this is no ordinary outfit. This new uniform, they claim, is actually the 'Golden Eagle Armor' from the comics, minus the impressive wings and helmet. On the one hand, those elements are... kind of what make it the Golden Eagle armor to begin with. But on the other, it's probably best for movie fans to get familiar with the DC lore at work.

It's too soon to tell if director Patty Jenkins and the studio are explicitly teasing the full 'Golden Eagle Armor' for Wonder Woman 1984, but allow us to be the first to warn that if it's true... then the movie may not be following the comic book mythology behind it.

The introduction of new Amazon armor will obviously have fans wondering where Diana could even get it. She can't return to Themyscira, remember? But with so little of Diana's time on the island shown in her first movie, it isn't a hard riddle to solve (a suit was lost and recovered by archeologists, etc.). But one thing's for sure: whatever lore or backstory is given will beat the comic book version, since the Golden Eagle Armor is... well, just a suit of gold armor. In fact, it isn't really the armor that tells the story, but the fact that Diana hardly wears any to begin with. So when she does armor up--with massive metal wings and a beaked helm--comic readers know the coming fight is going to test her (even if it doesn't actually, since she's, you know, Wonder Woman).

The subtext was that her iconic costume was not one of war, meaning the idea of the Amazons' 'Champion' meant one who avoided battle, instead of seeking it out. A few years later the armor was incorporated into the main DC continuity by writer Eric Luke and Yanick Paquette in Wonder Woman #144 (1999), when Diana donned the armor in a clear homage to Mark Waid and Alex Ross's Kingdom Come scene. Again, without offering any deeper meaning or significance other than it being Diana's actual Amazonian armor.

But that still left the door open to there being some elaborate backstory or magical enchantments, right? Perhaps. But when Queen Hippolyta followed her daughter off the island of Themyscira in Phil Jimenez's "Worlds at War" story, a bit more was explained. Phillips does the talking in Wonder Woman #172, revealing that she had a suit of armor made for Hippolyta in the image of Diana's own. With the Sandals of Hermes and the Gauntlet of Atlas, Hippolyta made for a dead ringer--but the armor itself was just armor. Special, Amazon-made armor, but lending no more than protection to the wearer. (Editor's note: Diana has worn the armor after removing the wings, so the poster isn't necessarily altered from the movie's version.

I hope she gets to wear her "regular" costume, too. The movie´s story takes place in 1984, right? It would make more sense to let her wear her more regular costume.

Pretty much every picture taken from the set shows her in her regular costume. So it's safe to say she'll primarily be wearing that.

Then again, her "new" costume will probably be entirely CG so that could be one reason why we haven't seen any leaked set photos of it.

Oj, that´s nice to know. For some reason the only pictures I´ve seen from that film were scenes without her in her costume.

Off-topic....I´m amazed how up to date you always are when it comes to movies, music and pop culture in general. And how much you know about movies from the past even though you are comparatively young (and probably superbusy raising a child).

Very impressive !

I had a very odd childhood. My mother kind of just left us (my sister and me) in front of the TV and went about her business. I was raised by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Batman, Classic Disney, Clint Eastwood and Woody & Buzz Lightyear. It could have been worse, I suppose. Then when my little brother came along, it was up to me to raise him even though I'm only 7 years older than him. So that's how I kind of got introduced to the likes of Nintendo and things of that nature.

It also helps that I was, before having my daughter, in the entertainment industry. Actress, model, singer etc. I couldn't be bothered doing any of that stuff full-time anymore but I still have a lot of friends involved in that world. After all, as one of my mother's boyfriends once told me, "it's not what you know, it's who you know that counts", lol.

Sounds very similar to my upbringing, even the entertainment industry part, though I wasn´t really part of it myself but some of my friends were (and still are) , so I got to see a lot of what happens behind the curtains.

Interesting story, and cool that you still remain levelheaded and down to earth.

As one-sheet I really like and I dig her 1980's hair, she looks really good...
As a "Wonder Woman" poster though...
