Costumes from the upcoming Justice League movie are on display at San Diego Comic-Con, giving a new look at the team. Though Comic-Con hasn’t officially started yet, many exhibits are open to press today, the DC costumes being one. The costumes were on display earlier this year at the Licencing Expo, but now fans have access to them for the first time and are able to see up close the detail that audiences haven’t been able to see in the trailers.
The costumes worn by Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot), Batman (Ben Affleck), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) are all on display, and can see our exclusive photos of them in the gallery below. Also available for closer inspection are three Mother Boxes, which will form an integral part of Justice League‘s plot. The Mother Boxes were created by DC’s New Gods, and in the DCEU three of the intelligent cubes left behind after Darkseid’s last war against Earth. He now wants them back and sends Steppenwolf to collect them.
The costumes and Mother Boxes are highly impressive when seen up close. Though The Flash costume has come under some criticism from those who have preferred earlier incarnations (including The CW’s version), it is actually a very detailed and well thought-out piece, with clear similarities to the Batsuit that Affleck wears. Diana Prince has already rocked her costume in Wonder Woman, and her Justice League outfit is hardly altered from that, if at all. The display model also carries her shield and the lasso of truth.
There is incredible detail in Aquaman’s getup, but perhaps the most impressive is Cyborg’s. Said to be the heart of the Justice League movie, it’s understandable that Warner Bros. would want to make sure the suit is impressive, though some have expressed doubt over how Fisher’s face will integrate with the mechanical parts of his body. The action figure which Fisher recently revealed looked good enough, but the real test will come when we see Cyborg on screen; a brief appearance in Batman v Superman wasn’t really enough to establish his character much less how good (or not) the costume looks on screen,
The costumes display precedes a large Justice League presence at Comic-Con this year; Warner Bros. Hall H panel is expected to be firmly focused on the movie, which is the next DC release to come. It seems safe to assume that many of the Justice League actors will be present, and we could well get a look at previously unseen footage or even a look at Steppenwolf, to be played by Ciaran Hinds.
