Before I talk about Justice League, here’s a little something for our editor-in-chief Courtney. It’s actually in our LwC best practices.
Editor’s Note: Courtney approves. Carry on…
So, I was getting concerned. Justice League is due out Friday, and there hasn’t been any lame leftist outrage. I thought by law you couldn’t have a comic book movie without leftists complaining over something stupid. Especially after the treasure trove of Wonder Woman butthurt (see Of Course! Angry Liberal Film Critics are Upset ‘Wonder Woman’ isn’t Feminist Enough and Latest Outrage: Wonder Woman is ‘FAT SHAMING!’ By Promoting Health Foods…).
Thankfully all is right in the universe. Apparently the Amazonians are showing too much T&A in this movie.
Fans aren’t thrilled about the Amazonian warriors’ revealing combat wear in Zack Snyder’s superhero movie.
Lol, “fans” are complaining.
Justice League is receiving mostly positive praise on social media ahead of its theatrical release this Friday. However, some folks are less than thrilled about the film’s costumes, specifically what the Amazonian warriors have to wear in Zack Snyder’s superhero movie versus in Patty Jenkins’ well-received Wonder Woman.
In case you wonder: Here's a picture of how the Amazons looked in Wonder Woman…next to pic how they look in Justice League. First designed by Lindy Hemming, second by Michael Wilkinson.
Some steps backwards, methinks. pic.twitter.com/IVqeX7PBso

Here is a fantastic example of the difference between the male and female gaze.

Studio executives from Warner Brothers were too busy buying off Rotten Tomatoes to comment. If they had commented, I imagine it may have gone something like this:
Here I thought complaints from Marvel fanboys were sad and pathetic. Then the feminist heroes come in with the puritanical rage over hot ladies looking extra hot by showing off their chiseled midriffs. Next let’s get Tess Holliday’s body image take. I bet she has some thoughts.
Is anyone actually surprised a male costume designer would show off the female form more than a female costume designer? Would the raging ladies (and white knight males) be assuaged if it was revealed Superman, who isn’t in any of the promos for this movie (but check IMDB.com) pranced about a gym in Americana-inspired boxers? Maybe after some pushups, he chops some firewood. Makes a fire. Would that help the ladies? Asking for a friend.
