A controversy erupted this week when it came to light that the Amazon warriors in Justice League are wearing skimpier, more “sexualized” outfits than they did in Wonder Woman. Now an actress who plays one of the Amazons is giving her opinion on the different look in the new film.
The tweet below shows a side-by-side comparison of the outfits:

Actress Brooke Ence, who plays an Amazon warrior in both films, told USA Today that the outfits “didn’t bother me at all” and went on to discuss the thoughts of the actresses on set:
“The girls on set, we never thought of (the new costumes) as a sexy version. It felt a little more glamorous, if anything, because we had bigger, beautiful hair, which I loved.”
She went on to discuss why she felt the outfits helped showcase body positivity, speaking as an athlete:
“I’m an athlete first, right? (Usually,) I can’t wear anything without someone commenting about my (muscular) body. So for me, it was actually really cool to be able to show it and not immediately feel masculine, but still very feminine.”
You will be able to check out the outfits yourself when Justice League opens later this week.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League will be released in theaters on November 17, 2017.
