Kevin Feige Says Michelle Pfieffer’s Iconic In Ant-Man And The Wasp

Michelle Pfieffer’s Catwoman in 1992’s Batman Returns did some very weird things to my young mind. I just wanted to see a fun Dark Knight movie, but what I got was a whip-crackin’, live-bird munching Pfieffer in full skin-tight latex and stiletto heels assaulting the Caped Crusader with sexually loaded puns. Ever since then, I’ve had a soft spot for the actress, who’s become a real top tier talent, recently turning heads in Darren Aronofsky’s excellent Mother!

So, it’s with no surprise that I see Kevin Feige is over the moon about her appearance in Ant-Man and The Wasp. She’ll be playing Janet van Dyne, former Wasp and mother of Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne. As far as the characters know, she was last seen sacrificing her life to save millions, losing herself to the infinite and almost inescapable Quantum Realm. Now, however,

NYC Weekend Watch: Raúl Ruiz, ‘The Heartbreak Kid,’ Alex Ross Perry, ‘Catwoman’ & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, 2018.

Directed by Sam Liu.

Featuring the voice talents of Bruce Greenwood, Jennifer Carpenter, Anthony Head, Scott Peterson, John Dimaggio, Grey DeLisle, and Yuri Lowenthal.

Synopsis:

Based on the graphic novel by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight envisions Batman in the Victorian Age as he chases down famed serial killer Jack the Ripper in Gotham City.

Over the last few year’s many of DC’s Original Animated Movies have been set within a continuity, each film building off the last, but every now and then DC does a one-off that is either based on an original idea or a graphic novel. For their latest film, they adapt the classic Brain Augustyn and Mike Mignola graphic novel Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, the first Elseworlds story, in what is the first truly enjoyable and great DC animated film in a long while.

Batman: Gotham by Gaslight a great adaptation.

Batman Ninja Finally Gets English Trailer And Blu-Ray Release Date

One reason why the character of Batman has endured for 78 years is that he’s so malleable. Sure, there are intrinsic qualities that unite various interpretations such as his superior intellect, martial arts skills and care for his fellow man, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been portrayals on opposite ends of the spectrum. For example, both Adam West and Ben Affleck have brought something very different to the table, but neither man’s efforts were no less valid than the other – and the same sentiment can be extended to comics and animation.

Having said that, the time has come to embrace what the near future will bring. As it turns out, the Caped Crusader will once again venture to the Japanese anime arena, this time with Batman Ninja. Directed by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s Jumpei Mizusaki, this bold story will see – get this – the Dark Knight

2018 Razzies: Jamie Dornan finally accepts his Worst Actor award for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ from Conan O’Brien [Watch]
He’d like to thank the academy … or, maybe not. “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Jamie Dornan won Worst Actor at the Razzie Awards two years ago for his performance as America’s favorite Bdsm businessman Christian Grey in the erotic drama. He wasn’t there to accept the “honor,” but he would have been happy to go. “Dude, if they invited me I’d be there,” Dornan recently told Conan O’Brien (watch above). “I won one, and I didn’t even get invited.”

“I’m intrigued to see what it’s all about,” Dornan explains. Poking fun at the awards that have poked fun at him, he added, “Apparently you can just pay $90 and just become a member online. An establishment that runs itself like that intrigues me quite a lot.” But even though he didn’t have the pleasure of accepting his prestigious Razzie in person, he

Exclusive Preview: Tensions Rise In Detective Comics #974

As highly enjoyable as Tom King’s run over on Batman has thus far proven to be, I’ve been very much pleased to see that James Tynion IV and the various artists that have worked with him for the past two years have succeeded in making Detective Comics feel like a markedly different book. They’re both fantastic, sure, but having two flagship titles featuring the same character with the same flavor is a trapping that isn’t uncommon in this medium, and I’m glad that’s certainly not the case here.

So, while Batman has (mostly) chronicled the adventures of a solo Dark Knight and has more recently focused on his relationship with Catwoman, ‘Tec has acted as somewhat of a team-up book. Uniting the Caped Crusader with the likes of Batwoman, Red Robin, Spoiler, Orphan, Batwing and even Clayface, it’s proven to be a darling

‘Black Panther’ Star Chadwick Boseman on the Secrets of His Superhero Suit

‘Black Panther’ Star Chadwick Boseman on the Secrets of His Superhero Suit
After “Black Panther” leaps into multiplexes next week, it will make a star out of the actor playing the king of Wakanda. Chadwick Boseman was cast as Marvel royalty based on his onscreen turns in “42” (as Jackie Robinson) and “Get on Up” (as James Brown). A trained martial artist, Boseman spent at least five hours in the gym each day to bulk up for his Herculean fight scenes.

In this week’s cover story, Boseman and director Ryan Coogler spoke to Variety about the historical significance of their film, as the first superhero tentpole led by a primarily black cast. Here’s what Boseman had to say about the secrets of his suit, his counterintuitive diet, and why Coogler was the right director for this project.

How did you prepare to play Black Panther?

I was actually introduced to the character in college. Obviously, I read the comic books. Marvel will provide you with [them]. I wanted to have

Exclusive: Shea Fontana Talks Bringing Catwoman Into DC Super Hero Girls

Given how Wonder Woman smashed box office records last year, it’s only expected that those largely unfamiliar with the comics flock to bookstores to check them out. Among them will likely be some younger readers and, luckily, that age group is covered thanks to DC Super Hero Girls.

Having first started back in 2015 as a web series that soon gave way to an expansive toy line, those were then swiftly followed by TV specials, animated movies and graphic novels such as Date with Disaster, the subject of today’s conversation. To my delight, a certain feline fatale enjoys a fair amount of the spotlight this time around, which we’ll get into shortly.

Basically, this franchise takes the heroes most of us are familiar with and reinterprets them as teenagers, thereby making them a bit more accessible to the generation coming up. Normally, we follow their adventures at Super Hero High,

Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler on How ‘Black Panther’ Makes History

Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler on How ‘Black Panther’ Makes History
Chadwick Boseman struggled to catch his breath after he was cast as Black Panther. When he first tried on his spandex suit for 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War,” it felt too restricting. “It was suffocating,” recalls Boseman. “Literally, it closed off every possibility of air getting to you. I was in it, put the mask on. I said, ‘Hey, you got to get me out of this!’” By the time he headlined his own movie, as the first black Marvel superhero with his name on the poster, Boseman was more comfortable in his re-engineered costume. “I think it begins to feel like skin after a while,” says the 41-year-old actor. “But it takes time to get to that place.”

The same can be said for Disney’s long-awaited tentpole “Black Panther,” which opens in theaters on Feb. 16. For decades, actors, directors, producers and fans have wondered why Hollywood was so slow to bring black superheroes to the

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Blu-Ray Review

After appearing in a litany of films both live action and animated, TV series and video games, the average Joe may think there’s not much else that can be done with the Dark Knight. Fortunately, the folks at Warner Bros. Animation have begun branching out in recent years, successfully mining the character’s 79-year comic book history. A couple years back, we saw the Bat Family generously fleshed out in Bad Blood and, now, we’ve been treated to something drastically different in the form of Batman: Gotham by Gaslight.

For those unfamiliar, Gotham by Gaslight was originally published in literary form in 1989 and ended up starting the Elseworlds line of books. Written by Brian Augustyn and drawn by Mike Mignola, it followed the exploits of a Batman residing in the 1800’s, tracking down Jack the Ripper.

Now, before I get any deeper into my review, I will say
