Earlier this week, fans took to social media to discuss their frustration with the Amazons' costumes in Justice League, which many felt were less than practical and an unnecessary change from their costumes in Wonder Woman earlier this year. The controversy eventually spread far enough to gain a response from one of these Amazons, and she appears to be unbothered by the new costumes.
The debate began over a social media post that put two photos of the Amazons -- one photo from Wonder Woman, the other from Justice League -- side-by-side, showcasing the differences in the costuming between the two films. Unlike the battle armor sported in Wonder Woman, which offered a far amount of coverage, the new costumes for Justice League seem to leave plenty of bare skin on display. However, while the change may be upsetting fans, one actress involved in the controversial photo has gone on to say that she had no problem at all with the change.

Speaking with USAToday, Brooke Ence, who plays the Amazon Penthiselea in both Wonder Woman and Justice League, told the outlet that -- despite what the image going around social media suggests -- not every Amazon in the film will be sporting a two-piece. Ence also said that the new costumes "felt a little more glamorous."
While it's easy to understand why many are frustrated with the updated costumes, it's worth noting that earlier photos have confirmed Ence's statement that not all of the Amazons will don two-pieces for the superhero teamup. In fact, those very photos seemed very much in line with what they sported in Wonder Woman over the summer. Fans will be able to determine if the new costumes are an unnecessary change when the film finally hits theaters this Friday.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17 and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
