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 took to the red carpet of the “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” New York premiere to say that she actually had some say when it came time to write Diana’s personality and design the Wonder Woman costume.

Gal’s say? She wanted her version of Wonder Woman to be a little “muddier” than most cut-and-dry superheroes.

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 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 said writers deliberately made Wonder Woman a bit “muddier.” They didn’t want to typecast Diana as a perfect character, so they mudied her character — and costume — up a bit to put her in the middle of the dark-vs-light spectrum.
