Care to learn more about the costumes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? DC Entertainment has released a new video that features designer Michael Wilkinson, who shares the secrets behind each super suit. And it’s not just as easy as throwing some cloth together. Wilkinson revealed that things got super technical to reflect each character’s personality—and what he says about Batman in particular is just awesome.
We actually saw these suits on display at Comic Con in San Diego earlier this year, but it’s fun to hear the thought process behind each design. As requested by Zack Snyder, Batman’s suit is meant to be hulking, similar to what fans are familiar with in Frank Miller’s interpretation of the Dark Knight. Superman’s, meanwhile, is meant to feature a design unlike what we see here on Earth, with subtle patterns and Kryptonian script hidden in plain sight.
The video also reveals some cool new concept art, which we’ve included in the gallery below. We’re apparently supposed to expect a new trailer for the film sometime soon, so stay tuned. For now, admire the craftsmanship that goes into creating a superhero suit. Maybe you’ll even get some pointers for your next cosplay.
