SDCC '14: First Look at Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman Costume

The photo depicts the princess of Themyscira in an outfit similar to her classic look, but with a bit more of a gladiator edge to it. The rumors are true that she will be carrying her sword around, although the also-rumored shield is absent here.

One thing that may startle fans is the lack of color, as she is lacking the traditional red, yellow and blue associated with her costume. That may just be a manipulation of the image, however, as pretty much everything we've seen so far has had this same sepia tone to it, including Superman's photo.

I, for one, am happy with this design. She's retained virtually everything that should be expected of her appearance even down to the bracelets and lasso. The W-logo is present, as is bird at the top of her corset (is it technically a corset?). The skirt makes much more sense rather than wearing leggings or taking the opposite route and giving her practically a thong. She's even rocking the headband!

I'm not sold on Gal Gadot playing the part until I see some actual footage, and even then, there's a chance the script could kill it for me. However, this is yet another step closer to making me excited for the film and less nervous that it will turn out to be a disappointment.

Now bring on the picture of Lex Luthor and help calm my nerves about that casting decision as well!

What do you think of our first look at Wonder Woman? Does Gal Gadot look the part, or is she still too skinny and not muscular or busty enough to pull it off?
