Wonder Woman's New Look Was Revealed At Comic-Con, And It's Remarkably Scandalous
At Comic-Con over the weekend, a clip of the much-anticipated super-hero mashup, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," was revealed.
But perhaps the biggest buzz came not from the glimpse of Batman and Superman meeting in the seconds-long video, but from a poster that showed for the first time how actress Gal Gadot will play the role of Wonder Woman.
In the apocalyptic-looking scene, Wonder Woman looks seriously strong — if you're into the whole skin-tight leather bodysuit and thigh-high boots sort of thing.

It certainly doesn't look like the traditional Americana Wonder Woman costume we've seen in the past, but sexualizing female characters is clearly one tradition that Warner Bros. decided to maintain.
The uniform is cool and Gadot does look awesome, but here's wishing a female superhero could get time on the silver screen even if she wasn't dressed like a dominatrix.
I can't wait for the mimicing Halloween costumes to come out — and for parents to realize that there's no way they could let their young daughters out of the house dressed like this Wonder Woman.
