Michael Wilkinson - Michael Wilkinson scared to create Wonder Woman outfit

Michael Wilkinson is thrilled but scared about designing the perfect Wonder Woman outfit.

The famed designer is working on a costume for the 'Man of Steel' sequel - tipped as 'Batman vs Superman' - and claims his extensive research into the character is helping him create the ''right'' outfit, but admits he wants the classic superhero to appeal to modern audiences.

Wilkinson - who was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on 'American Hustle' - told TheWrap.com: ''It's a thrilling and slightly scary process of course. It's so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on screen.

''I look at how the characters going to be presented on the big screen and on comic books and on graphic novels.

''We process that all and then we work out what is best for our film and we try and create a Wonder Woman who is modern and relevant for today's audiences.''

Gal Gadot is set to play the superhero in Warner Bros.' forthcoming film and Wilkinson claims it's likely the 'Fast and Furious' star will wear a gladiator inspired outfit.

He mused: ''I mean, you just have to look at the gladiators from ancient Rome; they did their thing in little loincloths, and a spear and a shield. It works for Thor, it works for 300 - so let's see what happens.''

The film will see Wonder Woman take a central role on screen for the first time since the famed 70s TV series.
