According to Batman News on Jan. 29, Michael Wilkinson, who is the costume designer for both "American Hustle" and "Batman vs. Superman", gave some information in regards to the "Man of Steel" sequel. Though he wasn't at liberty to discuss much about the costume designs, he did seem to imply that the DC Cinematic Universe that was created through Zack Snyder for this era, would be something that would coincide or be on par with the super heroes of today's standards.

"I’m not really at liberty to talk about the details of everything, but suffice to say we really respect the histories of all of these characters. We’re all very reverent about the iconic graphic nature of these characters and their costumes. We see ourselves as part of the natural lineage of how these characters are being portrayed through out the ages and our goal is to create something relevant and exciting for today’s audiences and something that works for this thrilling cinematic universe that our director Zack Snyder is creating".

Wilkson did coin his research into costume design as some kind of "multilayered design challenge" and by reading into Snyder's script, it seems he really had to get into the essence of the character, especially when it comes to how they had been portrayed through the ages.

"You really dive into the source material. We’re looking at all of the different ways these characters have been portrayed over the ages. We’re looking hard into Zack’s script and working out what makes sense as far as telling the story — who these people really are and what they represent, how to make sense of them in today’s world. It’s an interesting, multilayered design challenge".

Considering that "Batman vs. Superman" has been pushed back a considerable amount of time, Wilkson had expressed that there had been some interesting camera tests as well as photo shoots up to this point, but feels that "Warner Bros. has it all worked out".

Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" will be released on May 6, 2016.
