Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck at Comic-Con 2014

Posted on July 28, 2014

The Superfriends rock out at Comic-Con:

There’s very little to discuss from a fashion perspective, but once again we can’t help thinking this would’ve been such an awesome opportunity for each of them to come out wearing Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman t-shirts. These pics are kinda dull because the outfits are so nondescript. And since fandom has given Affleck and Gadot such a hard time (for not embodying each fan’s personal vision for the characters), it would’ve been seen as a cheeky and fun response. Must we tell you everything, stars? Tsk.

On the other hand, this outfit got a TON of attention when it was unveiled:

We’ve seen plenty of fan grumbling about this (which is to be expected, since no costume was ever going to make all the fans happy), but we think it  looks pretty damn good. The colors are too muddy, but all of the PR images from this film have been desaturated, so it’s kind of hard to tell what the final colors will look like on film. The Lynda Carter bathing suit was never going to fly in 2014 (and the character hasn’t worn that costume in the comics for several years anyway). This, to us, looks like an attempt to take the costume as far away from that campy, ’70s version while still leaving her recognizable as Wonder Woman. Gone is the WWII-inspired iconography of star-spangled panties and eagle bustiers. Instead, they went for the “Warrior Princess” schtick. And while there have been plenty of derisive comments about how this ripped off Xena’s costume, the fact of the matter is, Xena ripped off Wonder Woman’s costume. Our only complaints (aside from the color issue) come down to the desire to see some sort of straps holding that bust up and noting the wedge heels, which are going to look very silly if she tries to run in them. We suppose it’s possible the heels are only to make her appear taller next to her co-stars and won’t be seen in the film, but that seems unlikely given their prominence in this picture.

We like it, though. She looks strong and charismatic, with a Bronze Age edge to her.

    • Victor Beiramar Diniz

      the pr image is giving me a vibe of ‘kim k does wonder woman’, and that ain’t good…

      • Vegas Girl

        Thank you! I was trying to figure out what was bugging me about that shot, and I think you hit the nail on the head.

      • Man Dala

        I just wrote that, I hadn’t seen your comment.

      • Nicholas

        Give Kim K credit for wearing a Wonder Woman Halloween costume at all, though. Nerd props deserved.

    • ctopine

      I can run in wedge heels. I do it regularly when I see my train pulling into the station. Personally, I think it would have looked silly if they walked in wearing the t-shirts of their characters.

      • Bridget Smith

        I *can* run in wedge heels, but I don’t *plan* on it: I still put sneakers on when I’m going to the gym.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        I was just thinking that – wedges are my shoes of choice for running for the bus… And I think Natasha Romanov’s costume involved wedges in at least one of the Marvel movies, so that seems to be the compromise for practicality and leg-lengthening.

        • sweetestsith

          I was ok with Black Widow in wedges, the actress is SHORT. This actress… Not so much. She also already has incredibly slender, looong legs. It’s pure fantasy slutty costuming and I’m tired of it. Wonder Women may be super magically-awesome and everything, but aaaaaaaaagggggggggghhhhhh.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

            My issues with that costume are all from the thighs up. I think she could be super magically-awesome and have protected shoulders.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Wonder Woman is an Amazon who can fly. If anyone can run in wedge heels, she can! :)

      • Kikishua

        I’d have liked if they’d worn each others tee shirts tho. Ben Affleck IS Wonder Woman!

    • Glam Dixie

      Ben Affleck is bigger than Henry Cavill? Whut? A lot of beefcake going on as for Wonder Woman, I am meh about this.

      • Kent Roby

        Affleck is bigger, but not nearly as muscular as Cavill (few men are, unless they’re over-pumped to the point of bulkiness).

        • Glam Dixie

          That’s ok, Affleck’s suit has built in muscles. ;) ETA, god, Henry Cavill is beautiful.

          • demidaemon

            True that!

    • deelup

      Superman is still in blue and red, Batman is still in black. If this is bronze, I’m wondering why. If it still incorporates shades of red and blue I think it’s fine.

      • deathandthestrawberry

        Yeah. I like the look of the costume but hate that it’s not red and blue. I’m hoping it’s just a bad photoshop job.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Goddam the lady looks amazing but the boots are distracting: Nobody saves shit in Pretty Woman boots.

      • Alloy Jane

        I get that men run around with junk between their legs, but as a woman, I have no idea how that stiff codpiece looking thing won’t get in the way once she tries to close her legs to, you know, move. Plus, knee-high boots kinda get in the way when you try to run. I just don’t get this costume. What’s wrong with red white & blue? If they were gonna change the coloring to a metallic leather, it shoulda been gold. She’s a princess!

    • RussellH88

      Anyone else lacking any sort of faith in this movie? It’s like DC is doing a half-asses attempt at the way Marvel has managed their franchise.

      As for the Wonder Woman costume, I think it looks fine.

      • deathandthestrawberry

        I did not like Man of Steel, so I’m not confident that this movie is going to be any better.

        • In_Stitches

          I blame Snyder. Hopefully Affleck can flex his directorial (award winning) muscle and negate some of Snyder’s sillier affectations.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I have low expectations.

      • ConnieBV

        It’s from the mind that brought us Sucker Punch, so I don’t have high hopes for WW’s rep. I’ll wait and see what he does with Batman and Superman, but I do hope he doesn’t go dark with both. There needs to be obvious contrast there.

        • RussellH88

          The only Synder film I’ve seen is Watchmen, which I really enjoyed (But I loved the graphic novel so I went in biased). But yeah, I think it’s going to be too “gritty”.

          • fursa_saida

            Huh. I really disliked Watchmen precisely because I felt it missed the point of the book. Care to elaborate on why you liked it?

        • StelledelMare

          Not gonna lie, I am a huge fan of Sucker Punch (and most of Snyder’s films), which was pretty colorful in a darker way at times which is why I don’t understand the scarcity of color here.

      • gabbilevy

        I’ll be more surprised if it’s good, although I’ll still probably see it, because CAVILL.

      • FrigidDiva

        I wish they’d have given Superman a standalone sequel without introducing the JLA. For me Man of Steel wasn’t terrible but it just dragged on too long, they tried to cram way too much into that movie. As much as I love Russell Crowe I could have done without the whole beginning part set on Krypton. I also like Kevin Costner and Diane Lane, but I wasn’t thrilled with their portrayal of the Kents. I did really like Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne though. For me the strongest parts of the movie were the ones in Metropolis. However, I do think that Affleck will make a good Batman, espeically if they’re making him an older and more world weary superhero in contrast to Cavill’s more bright-eyed and optimistic Superman.

    • http://fibonaccisequins.storenvy.com/ Danielle

      Look, I’ll be honest here. I didn’t make it past Henry Cavill in the white shirt. I’ll be in my bunk.

      • Anapestic

        Amen, sister.

      • Bridget Smith

        I opened up the page, started scrolling, and then just stopped and said aloud, “My God, he’s good-looking.”

      • DaringMiss

        Right there with you all! He is a very fine example of the male of the species!

      • samitee

        I almost feel bad for Affleck having to stand next to THAT. Gonna be a looong Justice League poledance for him, no?

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      I LOVE this costume. Warrior Princess works for me. This looks as sensible as you can get with bare thighs and shoulders.

    • Mrs. Julien

      Cavill on a Monday morning? You do love us.

    • Synnae

      God, these are boring outfits. If they can’t go crazy at Comic-con just imagine what the rest of the pole dance will look like.

      As for Gal’s WW outfit, not too many issues, apart from it being very bronzy. If the wedges have a decent fit, she can probably run in them.
      As for Gal being WW, don’t get me started…

      • ohhoneyhank

        I kinda wish that Gal bulked up more for this role. I know that most versions of WW aren’t obviously muscular, but Gal is a teeny woman. I think she’d be more believable as WW if she looked a little less fragile.

        • Synnae

          That was everybody’s casting issue wasn’t it? I still wish they had hired Henry’s real life girlfriend, she is much more the WW I have in mind.

        • sweetestsith

          I didn’t mind Gal’s casting much until I saw a picture of the poster that had been stretched sidewise 10%. The difference it made was incredible, she looked infinitely more fierce and strong. Now I’m kind of sad about the casting and feel bad.

    • Latin Buddy

      Although I’m in the camp that finds WW’s costume impractical and made to tart her up, to be fair, the Batsuit has nipples and chiseled abs and Superman is wearing a built-in bulge.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        I know it’s silly to say out loud but it’s the lack of movement at the joints that pulls me out of disbelief-suspension. Since I know how difficult a deep knee bend is in freakin’ skinny jeans, I can’t buy that a person who engages in combat would wear over-the-knee boots. I can’t speak to restrictions imposed by a bulge.

        • Bridget Smith

          If you look carefully, you can see some skin on the back of her left knee. It looks like this may be more of a knee/shin guard than an over-the-knee boot, which makes a bit more sense.

    • Dino Bonačić

      I only wish the costume had the colours somewhere. Saturated or not – it’s a press image that represents the character, and there must be something red&blue with WW! :)

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      I like it, but molded breast-breastplates are a petpeeve of mine, because they basically invite being stabbed in the heart. Of course, Wonder Woman’s invincibility should protect from that so if anyone gets to wear metal boob armor, it should be her.
      Also, I really hope they bring in her gold winged eagle armor for a battle scene. WW is epic as hell in it.

    • Kent Roby

      Filene’s annual Running of the Brides proves that some women can run faster in heels than their counterparts in flats! I will watch this movie, just because Cavill is in it.

    • Kitten Mittons

      Ben looks venue appropriate, yet still douche-tastic. Guess that’s just my irrational hatred showing through.

      The other two look pretty nice, if a little boring.

      I like the WW costume, I suppose, but I’m not a comic nut, and have absolutely nothing invested in it. It could be a lot worse, I think.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Black Widow wore (lower) heels in The Avengers, but flats in her big fight scene. I expect the same for Wonder Woman.

      Overall, I’m happy with the costume (hoping it will have more color/impact in the film). I really like that the “W” on her breastplate is cleavage-covering.

      Putting them all in their character’s t-shirts is a great idea, someone who could make it happen should have thought of it.

      • Kitten Mittons

        Didn’t even see the “W” at first glance. The put another one right above her lower lady bits.

      • enchanted216

        I think the W is actually a stylized eagle. I like the idea of it being both, though…:-)

    • histrogeek

      DC seems very scared of color for its heroes. Between the Man of Steel, Flash, and now Wonder Woman, it’s becoming a little depressing. I think the stinker Green Lantern combined with the successful Dark Knight has them allergic to anything that can be seen at a distance or can be considered remotely cheerful. Never mind that Marvel’s heroes are rocking Cap’s bright blue, Thor’s scarlet cape, and Iron Man’s hot rod red and gold.
      They don’t get that Batman, whose main super power is hiding in shadows, should be dark, but when you can bounce bullets off your body (forget the silly bracelet thing) you should go bold.

      • JauntyJohn

        This! This!
        I am always saddened and puzzled by the lack of color in the DC characters when translated to film. You can do strong color and not lapse into camp.
        With that said, the WW casting and costume is growing on me. In the comics this version has some gold and some white to it, and keeps this vibe but has more punch.
        But on one point, I must disagree: bracelets/vambraces are her thing, and no more silly than a batarang. Hola!

        • evave2

          I have never been able to figure out why Marvelverse movies do so much better than DC verse movies. Is it that the Marvel characters were already written as somewhat “off” and DC characters are stalwart and true?
          Well all the iterations of Batman have done well but I think all together Marvelverse does better.

          I did not like Ironman very much but Robert Downey Jr just sings in the part.

          In the first picture Gal’s head looks way too big for her body.

          • Sonny

            Marvel really embraces the fact that superheroes are silly and that superhero movies should be fun while DC seems to be doubling down on the gritty Dark Knight thing. It works fine for Batman because that’s a semi-realistic universe but dark, realistic Superman/Wonderwoman/AQUAMAN doesn’t work imo.

          • demidaemon

            I wouldn’t say ALL the iterations of Batman were done well. From Clooney as Batman onwards, until the current trilogy started, most of the Batman films were pretty bad.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Actually, one other peeve: the tiara is disappointingly abstract and nondescript. It doesn’t really look as iconic as it should. It doesn’t need to be the same as the old icons, but the tiara is one of WW’s logos and should function better for her brand.

    • Dandesun

      Wonder Woman’s costume does suggest an Amazon in the Greek myth sense so I’m okay with it. The star-spangled panties were never going to fly. Never.

      As for the rest of it…. hoo boy.

      Let’s start with the good: Henry Cavil is a ridiculously handsome man.

      The rest? Well, I’m Marvel far more than DC. I ventured into DC for a time back in the day, loved some Impulse, Nightwing, Young Justice, Aquaman and Birds of Prey but when it came down to it, Marvel characters got to me more than DC ever did. I’ve seen all the Batmans (ALL of them) and most of the Supermans and while I thought Man of Steel was fine I did think the Destruction!Porn in the last hour or so was way way way too much. Not to mention the fact that it really highlighted, to me, how Marvel has succeeded at prolonged fight scenes. It’s a lot trickier than just GCI and dudes pounding on each other with their fists and buildings collapsing. I thought Thor: The Dark World did a much better job with their solo fight between Thor and Malekith as far as keeping it interesting and, honestly, my favorite thing in all of superhero movies is to watch Captain America fighting.

      I did like the Jor-El stuff along with Pa Kent in ‘Man of Steel’ even if Supes was really really morose the whole time. Eh, whatcha gonna do? All of the Marvel guys get angsty but they don’t seem to live there.

      So Supes vs Bats with a side of Diana and possibly glimpses of Arthur — at the moment, it’s just not singing to me. If the movie is still coming out the same day Cap 3 does… Cap wins my first viewing no question.

      I just haven’t been as impressed with DC’s stories as compared to Marvel’s on the big screen.

      • marlie

        I’m with you. Overall, I’m way more of a Marvel fan than DC (though I still like the Dark Knight and the most recent Superman for the most part), BUT WW has always been my favorite superhero, so I am feeling cautiously optimistic about this trio.

        • Shawn EH

          Marvel is on a roll now, but it took them a long time, after those horrid FF movies and all that middling Daredevil, Elektra, Ghost Rider, Hulk stuff. DC started off so great with the 1970s Superman, and then the Burton Batman films in the 1980s, but then lost their momentum.

          • marlie

            I forgot about the FF movies. I bet Chris Evans did too (or wants everyone else to forget about them). As for the rest that you mentioned… ALL unfortunate.

      • StelledelMare

        I definitely agree. Marvel characters and stories have always just seemed to be alot more interesting from the get go. Plus I’ve always felt that Marvel seems to be willing to explore lots of characters rather than just one or two of the most well known in the case of Batman and Superman who have had tons of films , good and bad, in comparison to other DC characters. While Marvel has had several films, also good and bad, about so many more of their characters.

    • Mr. J.

      Ben Affleck is such a nice dad, I was falling asleep….then Henry woke me up.

    • Anna

      HOLY SHIT HENRY CAVILL IN THAT WHITE SHIRT.

      *Am now imagining him as Mr. Darcy diving into the lake in that white shirt*

      • FibonacciSequins

        I’ve never thought of Henry Cavill as Mr. Darcy.

        I’ll be in my bunk.

        • Anna

          Me neither, until I saw him in the white shirt, but I’m glad I did!

      • Alloy Jane

        I wish to god I could upvote this a thousand times. Thank you for that mental image. The lake scene is my favorite!

    • Frank_821

      I think it’s fine overall. from what a friend told me who closely examined a high-res version of the image, the outfit is colored but the ad gave it a sepia saturated tone for “drama”

    • MartyBellerMask

      I wonder who Cavill will “canoodle” during the poledance for this one? Hopefully the PR teams will take chemistry into account this time.

      • Imasewsure

        I checked my schedule, and it turns out I’m available…. Henry? Henry? I’ll be dressed and ready for the party, darlin… and I’m fairly confident that I can outdress Ms. Cuoco anyway… :)

    • maretha2

      Henry Cavill, you are a treasure. Please learn how to stand and pose without your hands in your pockets, though.
      Ben Afflezzzzzzzzzzz
      I kind of hate the WW look. The costume is fine, I guess, as far as these things go. But for me WW looks like Lucy Lawless or Serena Williams: someone strong and gorgeous and fierce. This looks like “Barbie plays dress up as warrior princess!” Meh.

      • formerlyAnon

        A Serena Williams-esque Wonder Woman would be AWEsome!

      • Alloy Jane

        Exactly. Wonder Woman is an Amazon. Shit, even Twilight found Amazonian type actresses for the last movie. I don’t know who this kid is, but she’s just too dainty.

    • MilaXX

      I have less issue with her than her costars. I found Cavil to be the most blandest Superman in a really long time and Afleck sucked the last time he played a super hero. I’m willing to give all of them the benefit of the doubt, but I really hope this script is more interesting than the last Superman film was.

    • marlie

      I like the WW costume. My only quibble is the heels, BUT it’s not like she’s wearing 4-inch stilettos, so I can get past these. Also, props for not putting her in a costume where it seems like her boobs are going to come flying out the second she starts to run (See: Adrianne Palicki’s costume for the failed WW series). I’m still excited to see what’s going to come of these three, and I’m willing to give them all the benefit of the doubt.

    • frannyprof

      Cavill is a robot.

    • Jessica Freeman

      All I know is, there are so many superhero/woman movies out I have no idea who is what anymore.

      Cavill. Yes, please.

    • http://sleepingfoxstitchery.weebly.com CLoverleaf

      It’s not like she needs to be wearing heels to look taller. Movies have “magical” ways to make people appear taller or shorter.

      • sugarkane105

        As exhibited in any Tom Cruise movie ever made.

        • catsonmars28

          but isn’t he usually wearing heels in his movies?

          • conlakappa

            Sure he is.

    • cocohall

      This is going to be very tragic come Halloween and all the little girls are wearing their WW costumes and people ask which Kardashian are you?

      • formerlyAnon

        Oh GOD.

    • Inspector_Gidget

      I think it’s a good interpretation, instantly recognizable as Wonder Woman but not camp. Well, other than maybe those heels. My only complaint is the usual one with H-wood, the insistence on draining as much color as they can out of everything. Because desaturation = gravitas, I guess? Whutever.

    • FrigidDiva

      I’m surprised that no one’s brought up in all the press and cover stories about the whole Affleck Casitng Debacle of the Ages the irony of Affleck starring in a Superman movie since he played the original Superman, George Reeves, in Hollywoodland (which I thought Affleck did a pretty good job in). No matter who got announced to play Batman people were going to pitch a fit and act like it was a sign of the end times. How short the fanboys and girls memories are, there was an outcry when Bale was announced as the next Batman too. While I think Affleck is a better director than an actor, I’m still looking forward to his portrayal of the caped crusader. And Henry, can you go back to seasons 1-2 of The Tudors for your hairstyle?

    • formerlyAnon

      My only quibble was that Wonder Woman deserves flat-heeled boots, or very low, wide heels. My suspension of disbelief and resignation to tropes-of-the-genre have me thinking that whatever that one-shoulder quasi-baldric weapon harness looking thing is, it’s more than one could reasonably have expected in the keeping-the-tits-covered-in-the-face-of-gravity department.

      Sadly, playing “bullets and bracelets” was my favorite thing about WW as a kid, and it’s not gonna be the same to me if it’s “bullets and bracers” or worse, “bullets and gauntlets.” *Sniff.*

      Oh, and yeah – actors. Looking just fine. In ways that take lots of work and good genes to pull off. Whatever.

    • NMMagpie

      Ben Affleck has gotten better looking with age. Mr. Cavill is just eehh with me. I hope this Wonder Woman kicks butt. It’s about time.

    • KT

      Henry looks cute and just a smidge homosexual; Gal looks cute but boring as hell; Ben looks… tired and like he doesn’t really belong here. Because, let’s face it, he doesn’t. Give us the next best picture winner, honey — you’re actually a pretty great writer/director.

      As for the Wonder Woman costume, fehhhhh. I don’t hate it, but it looks kind of generic and dated, to my eye. I definitely thought Xena right away, as well. I don’t care enough to have strong opinions one way or another, but I feel like they could have done better. That said, this color palette will look nice on Gal Godot.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      That is an eagle bustier.

      • Shawn EH

        Yes, and I think with better lighting the bodice is red and the leather skirt-flaps are blue, so it’s an acceptable version to me. Gadot certainly looks the part.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      I’m sorta loving it . . .

    • LadyVimes

      They are all quite pretty but…boring.

    • Carolina E.

      Why they need another Batman, if Christian Bale was the best? Saying this, they look so boring and dull, like Blake Lively’s new web… I hope there’s only one movie from them…

    • NinjaCate

      Agreed. Support the babyheads and I really just wish the colour was there.

    • julnyes

      Meh – they all bore me. Cavill is bland, Affleck as Batman is just sad. I haven’t seen Gal Gadot in action, so I am holding out hope she can kick butt as Wonder Woman, but that still is giving me “Member of the Amazon Corps” Not Goddess / Ruler.

    • Morgendorffer

      *sigh* Why are female superheroes not allowed to wear pants so much of the time?

    • Kirstin McAulay

      I’m just thrilled that there will be a female character who doesn’t spend the whole time screaming in a DC movie…. personally I love the amazon schtick here, and the vambraces are fine!

    • Maggie Smith

      This WW costume isn’t OMG It’s So Perfect squee worthy. But I do like it. Honestly, it hearkens back to the costume Hippolyta wore when she was stepping in as Wonder Woman. So, I don’t get why people are up in arms about it.

      My problem is that I’m disappointed that they didn’t make Gal Gadot do more lifting and bulking up. The Crossfit cult has been successful in recruiting plenty of women the last several years. And they make the men bulk up so they are believable as physical strongmen, why not ask the women to look strong as well? She looks as though she has done some training and put on some athletic weight, which makes me happy, I just wish she had gone all the way there.

    • vitaminC

      Eh, Wonderella is better. (Google for comic awesomeness; can’t embed links here.)

    • Man Dala

      Affleck is too old to play Batman. Cahill is the PERFECT Superman. Wonder Woman looks like Kim Kardashian dressed up as Xena for Halloween in that photo.

    • ktr33

      That girl is so cute! Never heard of or seen her before, I like her! And I like those cute sandals in her real-world outfit.

    • GemFemme

      I like the new WW outfit. It’s sexy without being skanky. However, she just seems too thin and wispy to be an amazon. Maybe they photoshopped her that way.

      I also think the front of the skirt is too short. She may not be wearing a swimsuit anymore, but this is setting up for some “swimsuit shots” anyway. With the wedges and the corset, this is clearly not a practical costume to fight in (but I’m not a Marvel fan, so I’m not very invested in this).

        My inner comic nerd feels compelled to point out, (and please forgive the pedantry in advance) that Wonder Woman/Batman and Supes are all DC comics, not Marvel.

          Very sorry about that. I can be very pedantic about other things, so I completely understand that I am the one at fault here. Let me reformulate: “but I’m not a comic book fan, so [...]“

      The only problem I have with the costume is the lack of color. When discussing this with my brother (I’m a pretty big nerd but he has tons more comic knowledge than I do) I said that if you flashed the picture up for only a few seconds, you wouldn’t know it was WW. It took me a second to make out where the Ws were. I understand that they’re trying to move away from campy but I think it should definitely have some more color. As for the movie in question, I didn’t like Man of Steel that much and before that I’d only ever really seen Cavill in The Tudors (which I did like him in). I was one of those people who was also pretty skeptical of Ben Affleck in the Batman role only because I’ve been highly underwhelmed by his acting in the past. But at this point I’m just employing a “wait and see” attitude. I’d never heard of Gardot before this so i really don’t have an opinion on her in the role. I don’t have too high expectations for the film simply because they’re throwing alot of characters at us at one time and I think that has the potential to be a pretty muddled mess of a movie. But again, we’ll see. And now I will turn off my nerdiness.

      Man, Henry looks too dorky to be there and not in a good way.

      I really wish she had beefed up a little bit for this role. She’s gorgeous, but the whole “waifish girl inexplicably kicking everyone’s ass” trope is a little tired and this would have been a good opportunity to retire it– she’s supposed to be an Amazon for crying out loud!

      This is very Xena, but that’s good in my book :)

      Gal Gadot looks beautiful and strong in these photos but this poster looks like it’s just her head photoshopped onto a cartoon body.

      Never mind the wedges, how is she going to run with that crotch flap of armor poking her in the thighs?

      Oh. Henry.

      i HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE it. i just cannot get behind this casting at ALL. they already ruined maleficent for me and now this? this isn’t meant as a body snark because she is lovely and all, but she just does not fit the right physical type for this role.

      Cavill has to win. He schtupps Gina Carano.
