HOLLYWOOD — Does a male’s gaze change the best way an Amazon warrior seems?

That’s the query the Internet was debating Monday evening, forward of the world premiere of Justice League. Fans of the sturdy females from Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman seen that when those self same fierce fighters returned in Zac Snyder’s new Justice League, that they had skimpier outfits.

A narrative and tweet displaying side-by-side images of the women from Themyscira went viral.

But what does an Amazon warrior, herself, consider the up to date outfit?

Brooke Ence, who performs an Amazon in each motion pictures, advised USA TODAY on the premiere that displaying extra pores and skin “didn’t bother me at all.”

As she remembers, not each warrior wore a two-piece, and “the girls on set, we never thought of (the new costumes) as a bady version. It felt a little more glamorous, if anything, because we had bigger, beautiful hair, which I loved.”

In truth, the CrossFit champion added, “I’m an athlete first, right? (Usually,) I can’t wear anything without someone commenting about my (muscular) body. So for me, it was actually really cool to be able to show it and not immediately feel masculine, but still very feminine.”

That female energy is on full show in Justice League, out Thursday, the place Ence will get to point out off her power in a heroic scene.
