Dude... if that's what your grandma's pants look like, I need to meet your grandma.

I personally think some of the blue leather battle skirt mockups that I've seen are totally bad ass (and there were some more heavily armored mockups posted in one of the Batsuit threads that were just outrageously kick ass), particularly the ones that cover her up more. A battle skirt, ala tennis skirts, is a classy way to go that embraces her femininity but makes her combat ready. Even dudes have done battle in skirts, so it's not like a battle skirt wouldn't be tactical.

But, if we DID get pants, and if WW on screen looks anything like the above 'grandma pant' mockup, then sweet holy lord we are in for a treat. Because seeing that photo of Supes and WW next to eachother has got me *crazy* excited. Batman/WW/Supes together on screen is something I've dreamed about my entire life, and it looks like we're going to get a reasonably cool version of it.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Avengers film franchise and consider the Marvel movies superior in every way so far, but I *never* dreamed of Iron Man, Thor, Hulk & Captain America together on the big screen... let alone any of those guys on their own...

So if Snyder can pull off these 3 titans of comics on screen together anywhere nearly as well as he did Watchmen (which suffered profoundly for its lack of SQUID), I'm sure people will dish out the repeat-viewing-drag-all-your-friends cash that Avengers got. It will put the DC films solidly within the range of Marvel.

And If he can make it his best film... which he can... I think there is a solid chance of the Justice League franchise eclipsing Avengers. (Which would be amazing, because it could create a financial incentive for Sony/Fox to do a crossover event with Marvel).

Back on topic... Gal Gadot is going to knock this out of the park. It will be a career maker for her, and she will do everything she can to nail it. She's got "it" and in this make-it-or-break-it film, I don't think anyone* involved, from Snyder to Batfleck, will bring anything except for their absolute A game. She's Israeli, which lends her a faint air of exotic mystique. While I fully agree with the snap-reaction that her physique leaves a lot to be desired in terms of what we've all pictured for Wonder Woman, there is no doubt she will be in the best shape of her life for this film... which may still leave a lot to be desired for some... just spend some time looking at her enchanting face. One could argue that Wonder Woman shouldn't be so beautiful... but what GG lacks in athleticism (and acting talent for all I know, I haven't seen her on screen let alone heard her talk), she more than makes up for in being an otherworldly beauty.

*caveat... David S Goyer will not bring his A game. First off, he doesn't have an A game, secondly, the dude is so self absorbed that he doesn't care he doesn't have an A game. So unless Batfleck himself makes sure the dialogue is great, I expect that this film, with everyone firing on all cylinders, will be at best a B- because the dialogue will be so excruciatingly cardboard.

I feel like if anyone were to give her the underwear, it would be Snyder. However, I said the same thing about Superman, so...there you are.

The perfect suit would be the one made famous by JMC. Give it the New 52 color scheme and voilà.

I like the pants option from Injustice. Much like they lost the underwear in Supes' outfit, it's time to lose the skirt for Wonder Woman.

Lose the skirt and add pants that is, perverts.

yes, because it's impossible to think the battleskirt looks better than the pants without being a pervert. I think the skirt looks pretty badass actually, the pants just look weird to me.

You definitely read my post wrong.

Another option is she only wears the skirt on Themyscira, a very Greek style outfit just for her home.

Unfortunately, I think that's the opposite of what we're going to get. More fortunately, I'm okay with what I think we're going to get GG is a freaking knock out. And it's a Goyer script, so we were never going to get a line of dialogue that cool anyway.

All good points. With Gadot, as much of her body should be covered as possible, unless they are going to CGI her.

honestly, even though I said that, I don't think her size will be an issue, she'll almost certainly be put through hell in the gym for this role being a Zack Snyder film and all.

There is no way she's going to get the requisite physique because her frame is too small. She's 5'9" as well, so she'll need lifts and or camera trickery to make her seem more substantial.

and both those things have been in practice in film for years, Tom Hardy was Bane, he was far from the tallest dude in DKR, but you wouldn't know it just watching the movie, in fact you'd think he was in fact the tallest actor in the movie. I think she'll be able to get into good enough shape to work for the part, Snyder knows how to get the most out of his actors and actresses physiques.

I don't see it. She has no base from which to work. I'm hoping for some cool armor and a lot of smoke and mirrors from the cameras now.

Got something for everyone. The armor fans, the pants fans, the skirt fans. I think it'd be insane for them to not at least give it some consideration as a live action suit

depends on the rest of the outfit for me, if it's something with a more armored look then boots, something more reserved I'd say sandals.

I'm leaning a little more towards sandals. It'd be pretty badass seeing WW kicking ass in sandals. Kinda like "my toenails are tougher than you".
