Twitter is Angry 'Justice League' Changed the Amazon Costumes After 'Wonder Woman'

So, it will be super exciting to see Wonder Woman back on the big screen in the upcoming Justice League, where she'll be joined by some other iconic comic book characters: Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

Women around the world embraced the powerful female warriors in Wonder Woman.

In Wonder Woman, the warrior women wore metal plated armor into battle - armor that actually looks like it might offer some protection against steel.

Posting a photo of the two outfits side by side, Melissa Silverstein wrote: "Here is a fantastic example of the difference between the male and female gaze".

The mostly positive hype for Justice League just took a bit of a hit.


Directed by Patty Jenkins, "Wonder Woman" broke box office records while winning critical acclaim and inspiring a generation of young girls. In Wonder Woman, the fierce soldiers rock costumes designed by Lindy Hemming that cover their shoulders and torsos, which makes sense since they're constantly dodging deadly spears and swords.

That's a motto the brains over at the DC Extended Universe camp should perhaps have considered adopting, as they face backlash over their portrayal of Diana Prince's Amazonian tribe in the new Justice League movie. "Some steps backwards, methinks".

"Seriously, stop blindly retweeting that Wonder Woman costume meme".

Many users on Twitter are frustrated with Michael Wilkinson, the film's costume designer, and Zack Snyder, the director, claiming that the new armor is sexist. It's their "training" outfits.
