Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984 armor shares a feature with the Batsuit.

Costume designer Lindy Hemming created Wonder Woman’s “golden eagle” armor at the request of director Patty Jenkins. Jenkins wanted Diana Prince’s new suit to create “a one-woman formation of shields”. Lemming accomplished this by creating armor made up of a bunch of small parts.

“It’s like the Batsuit: all small parts. An armadillo-like articulation means that the person can move and twist and turn, and it will return to its previous position,” Lemming explained.

Unfortunately, many parts don’t make for easy wearability.

“Having said that, it was not pleasant to wear — no armor of any kind is pleasant to wear,” Lemming added.

While fans are excited to see Wonder Woman’s new armor in action, we’ll have a little longer to wait. Though Wonder Woman 1984 was originally supposed to hit theaters this summer. COVID-19 closures pushed the premiere date back to the fall. The new premiere date is October 2.
