Is That Wonder Woman?

Recently, Zach Snyder, the director of the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie, tweeted this photo of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.  While many people complain that Gadot does not have the build to portray Wonder Woman, the biggest gripe here is that it is devoid of color.  It is really bland.  Brown bland.  Most common pictures of Wonder Woman have her in a yellow, red, and blue outfit adorned with white stars.  If the upcoming movie will be shot like Sin City, okay, it might work.  But if everything else in this movie is colorful, she will look out of place.  The color makes her more suited for any other movie about ancient Greece or Rome, but not super heroes.  It also makes her outfit and weapons look old and dull.  The upper attire's design is nice, but her skirt could be longer.  The seat belt covering her chest plate looks unnecessary.  Here's hoping the production team makes some adjustments to Wonder Woman's color scheme before the movie gets released.
