Wonder Woman In A Dive Suit? Get The Latest On The DC Hero's Planned Costumes

Wonder Woman is here to save the day (and bring more gender equality to the DC cinematic universe). Frankly, it's about time someone did. The solo superheroine movie is slowly but surely on the way, with Gal Gadot wielding her lasso of truth and filmmaker Michelle MacLaren at the helm. It won't hit theaters until 2017, but it'll be one film you won't want to miss, especially since new details have arrived to make the Amazonian warrioress sound even more badass.
Latino Review's El Mayimbe has unleashed a report on Wonder Woman's various costume changes. And there will be numerous outfits. Back during last year's San Diego Comic-Con festivities, Warner Bros. revealed the first image of Gadot all suited up as Wonder Woman for her appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. She looked stellar in a classic, comic book-inspired outfit, complete with gladiatorial sword and lasso. According to Mayimbe, though, she'll be getting a total of six new looks, including a dive suit!
It's unclear why Diana will be needing a dive suit, but we certainly won't argue against it if it means she'll get to hack 'n' slash some baddies underwater. Lynda Carter, who portrayed Wonder Woman on the iconic TV series back in the day, had her own dive suit for the character. She sported it during the "Bermuda Triangle Crisis" episode, though it looked like something synchronized swimmers would wear. Given how ferocious Gadot looks in her more classically inspired get-up, we have confidence WB and McClaren won't make the character look ridiculous.
According to reports, WB is looking to shoot Wonder Woman this fall, which is a good sign. For a while, fans were worried they might never get to see a Wonder Woman movie. Many attempts were made to bring the character to live-action in some capacity. Remember that CW pilot? That was ultimately canceled. And even though Gadot was announced as Diana in Batman v Superman, it took the studio a while to calm our fears and reveal that she would eventually star in her own feature-length film.
There's no doubt that DC and Marvel have their own gender diversity issues, especially Marvel. Despite the popularity of the Avengers movies, Black Widow was the only female superhero for quite some time. The arrival of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) helps the studio's case, but even Olsen admitted recently that she didn't film a whole lot of scenes with Scarlett Johansson, and often times she felt like the only woman in the film. With the inevitable arrivals of Captain Marvel in the MCU and Wonder Woman in the DC universe, things are going to start changing for the better.
