Technically Major isn’t wearing a costume rather it’s the look of her prosthetic body made to imitate her former human one.

It allows her to perform numerous superhuman feats, such as superhuman strength, leaping between skyscrapers, advanced acrobatics, or shooting down a bullet after it was fired at mid-range.

In the trailer you can see her using these abilities to her advantage as she falls back off a skyscraper, a scene taken straight out of the animated film.

The film follows The Major and her task force as they face a new cyber enemy who will stop at nothing to sabotage Hanka Robotics’ artificial intelligence technology.

Ghost in the Shell Paramount final has had to deal with some negative press. In April 2016, reports surfaced that the film did visual-effects tests to make actors in the movie look more Asian. This is on top of the negative internet reaction to Johansson, a white American, being cast in the lead role (who is supposed to be Japanese) instead of an Asian actor.

Rupert Sanders – who famously had an affair with his "Snow White and the Huntsman star Kristen Stewart" – directs the film that also stars Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han. Juliette Binoche and Takeshi Kitano.

The casting of Johansson as The Major was met with wide-reaching criticism and the filmmakers were accused of whitewashing by not using an actress of Asian descent.
