Michael Wilkinson, the costume designer of Justice League, spoke to Comicbook.com about the process of creating an updated suit for Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader. Here is what he had to say on the matter:
“We’ve come up with a new cowl. It’s very close to the last one, but again new technologies, new materials (now made from polyurethane instead of foam latex), tweaking has allowed us to take that one even further. One big new detail is that Zack [Snyder] wanted the idea that there’s a little more sense of armour and deflection on his gauntlets when he is shot at. So I designed this thing based on a Samurai. We borrowed it from Bruce Wayne’s history too, so it has a connection with Asian martial arts in Japan. So I thought that would be perfect. We modernized it to the Wayne Tech aesthetic here. We changed the straight shank of the blade from last time. It’s something a little more aggressive.”
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Ciarán Hinds and Jesse Eisenberg.
