Lynda Carter expresses thoughts on Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume

According to Screen Rant on Saturday, actor Lynda Carter gave her opinion to Gal Gadot's new costume in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie. It seems as though she feels it didn't have the kind of color she was expecting when she had worn the rather obvious and patriotic looking red, white, and blue ensemble. Though, some fans may think the DC Cinematic Universe had already decided to go with a darker thematic tone to their films.

When Gadot was casted for the part, a lot of people had their doubts about being an accurate representation of the Amazonian version. Afterall, Gadot has a smaller frame, but she has been touted going through a intense workout regimen. There was some debate going on with Snyder's monochromatic costume as some struggle with the desire for an all American pie themed outfit as the actress, Galdot, is not American.

I could have been that her being Israeli may have lead to the reasoning of the more subdued tone. Of course, this wasn't the reason, as Snyder emphasized that Wonder Woman, the character, isn't from the United States at all. So it turns out the point is moot.

“Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say… I don’t know. I haven’t seen it yet, so I really can’t comment. Maybe there’s a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture.”

In the comic books, Wonder Woman, has been observed in having borders to protect, a certain jurisdiction. Today, comic book heroes are more globalized. For instance, Superman, who is from planet Krypton had grown up in Kansas and is seemingly as American as one can get. The irony to this is the fact he can go from one part of Earth to the other within minutes. He's a global protector, even though he stands for "truth, justice, and the 'American way'." as quoted by the black-and-white TV series.
