All of those who were waiting for the next Wonder Woman movie has seen the trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 and might be a bit confused by the golden armor. That’s not exactly what we’re used to seeing Diane wear. We’re pretty happy with her usual red white and blue superhero uniform, so why the change? It is an ode to the 80s glam where everything had to be bigger and shinier and therefore better?
Well, to explain the golden armor we’re going to dive a little bit into Wonder Woman’s backstory in the comics. The golden armor was first featured in Elseworlds: Kingdom Come, in which a new group of superheroes rise up and their approach to being a superhero is much more violent and borderline vengeance like. Many people die in the process and America is a mess. So Superman comes out of retirement to deal with it and Wonder Woman suits up for the battle.
