Michael Wilkinson serves as costume designer for Zack Snyder's untitled Man of Steel sequel, known for now as Batman vs. Superman. Much of the fans' focus on his work has been on the Wonder Woman costume, and he teased that Gal Gadot's outfit for the movie would be more "relevant" to today's crowd.

TheWrap caught up with him during the pre-Academy Award festivities on Sunday night, and Wilkinson first said he "designed the new Batsuit" when asked if he helped create the costume for Ben Affleck's character.
"I'm designing the new Wonder Woman costume," he added. "I'm tweaking the Superman suit, so yeah; I'm glad [to be hearing] good buzz about it."
Wilkinson offered the following when asked to explain his thought process in designing the Amazonian's suit:
"It's a thrilling and slightly scary prospect of course. It's so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on-screen in her full glory, so what I do is look at the history of the character has been presented on the big-screen, small-screen, comic books, and graphic novels; we process it all. Then we kind of put that aside and work out what it right for our film, for the cinematic universe that our director Zack Snyder is putting together. We try to create a Wonder Woman relevant for today's audiences."
Finally, Wilkinson said "Absolutely!" when asked if it would be realistic for Wonder Woman to fight crime in her typical skimpy outfit.
"I mean, you just have to look at the Gladiators from ancient Rome, they did their thing...with the shield and everything," he said. "Yes, it works for Thor and 300, so let's see what happens."
