Costume designer Michael Wilkinson is no stranger to epic movies – among his credits you’ll see titles like TRON: Legacy, Noah, and the live-action Aladdin. You’ll also see several collaborations with director Zack Snyder, with whom he’s worked since 2009’s Watchmen, including, of course, Snyder’s DCEU films Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. Snyder’s latest project, though, takes “epic” to new levels: his four-hour Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the sweeping and action-packed realization of the director’s original vision for the ultimate DC team-up.

Those who have followed the story of the “Snyder cut” know this is no ordinary director’s cut – it tells a very different story, is double the length of the 2017 Justice League, features an entirely new score, and showcases some fresh new looks for many of its central characters (and some much-welcome new ones). In this exclusive interview, Wilkinson breaks down how he created the looks – old, new, ancient, and… “future” – for Zack Snyder‘s Justice League, from honoring the comic-book legacy of Darkseid to creating the black supersuit and visualizing the Knightmare. Click the images below for the stories behind the costumes.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is available on HBO Max from Thursday, March 18, 2021.
