Fans can - and will - debate the cinematic merits of DC Comics-related films until they’re blue in the face, but what cannot be denied is that an enormous amount of work and thought went into creating the DC Extended Universe from behind the scenes. Zack Snyder and other subsequent directors have been so involved in the minutiae of their shared franchise that their influence has even extended to the DCEU’s many costumes and, through working with some talented costume designers, they’ve managed to do an excellent job of bringing some 2D superhero outfits to life on the big screen.
Costume design is a multifaceted endeavor, and it is clear that those designers involved in the DCEU have taken their task seriously and with great consideration. It doesn’t take too much digging to discover some truly astonishing secrets and hidden meanings behind the get-ups worn by the Justice League and their allies - and that only adds to the depth of enjoyment that fans can continue to find in the films themselves.
