Wonder Woman film costumes shine at NYCC, along with a beloved throwback

Next year’s Wonder Woman film is the fourth entry in the DC Extended Universe, and as such, it represents the latest attempt from Warner Bros. Pictures to live up to the hopes of filmgoers who have been treated to a series of thrilling movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But let’s forget about that drama for a minute. New York Comic Con was meant to celebrate all things geeky, and this past weekend, it served as the last major comic convention to mark the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman. The character debuted in December 1941, the same month Pearl Harbor was attacked, and the alter ego of Princess Diana of Themyscira has endured since then to become the most beloved female superhero of all time — and a canonically queer woman, to boot.

The Wonder Woman trailer that Warner Bros. released at Comic-Con International in July looked pretty promising, and DC Entertainment brought costumes for the film’s four main characters to New York Comic Con to give attendees a close look at the finely detailed outfits and accompanying weapons. In order, the characters represented were Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) and Antiope (Robin Wright). The fifth costume in the set was not from the upcoming film, but instead from the best-known screen representation of Wonder Woman to date: the eponymous 1970s television series starring Lynda Carter.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017.
