Jimmy Kimmel first brought attention to Gal Gadot’s unconventional Wonder Woman costume, which was a clear deviation from the bright star-spangled red-and-blue costume in the comics. Now, we may have a clearer answer as to why that is.
Gal Gadot said she wanted Wonder Woman to be “muddier” while she was on the red carpet of the “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” New York premiere.

The gorgeous Israeli actress showed up on the red carpet of the New York premiere in an extravagant, fully-embellished creation from Balmain’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection. Gal styled her look with jewelry from Fred Leighton and the Sophia Webster “Rosalind” sandals in satin.

Gal was asked where Wonder Woman was on the light-dark spectrum, after pointing out that Superman was more on the light and Batman was more on the dark. The actress shared that they deliberately made Wonder Woman a bit “muddier” so as not to portray her as someone too perfect, instead standing somewhere in the middle of the spectrum.
