Aubrey Plaza Puts Her Name Forward To Play Catwoman

19 July 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s Legion, a psychological superhero series set in the X-Men universe, was acclaimed by critics across the board, but one of its most standout elements was Aubrey Plaza as the central villain Lenny/The Shadow King. The Parks & Recreation actress was a terrific mix of psychotic and sexy as the evil entity. Which is actually a blend of traits that would also perfectly fit another comic book character that Plaza has now revealed she’d love to portray.

During an “Ask Me Anything” Q&A on Reddit, the actress was asked what movie she wishes she’d been a part of, and gave the reply: “I want to be cat woman (sic).”

Considering the question, Plaza might have been making a joke here, saying that she wished she’d starred in the universally deplored 2004 Catwoman movie featuring Halle Berry. However, we’re going to take what she said at »

Is Batman Facing Retirement (Or Something Worse)?

21 June 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Batman needs no introduction. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939, the Caped Crusader is one of the three members of the Holy Trinity of Comic Book Characters (along with Spider-Man and Superman). His origin is as well-known as he is, having been portrayed many, many times in comic books, television and movies. He is even perhaps more relevant today than ever: he is the central character in Warner Brothers' Dceu movie universe, his comic book is regularly DC's best selling, and a younger version of him is a central character on a Fox television show. We live, so to speak, in a world of Batman, but is that coming to an end? Recent events in the Batman comics have caused many to wonder if Batman is finally looking to retire, hanging up the cape and cowl once and for all.

DC's Batman comic is perhaps its flagship title. During the recent, and abysmal, New 52 series relaunch, Batman -- written by Scott Snyder -- was the only DC comic to consistently wow its audience, adding to the canon along the way. Following the demise of the New 52, Batman was handed over to one of the hottest rising stars in comics, Tom King, and the book has still amazed. During both runs, Snyder and King haven't hesitated to change the status quo. In the last several years for instance, Batman has started a 'bat family' of affiliated superheroes, a new faction of villains known as the Court of Owls reconfigured the Gotham landscape, and Joker cut his own face off. Batman seemingly died, but quickly returned with amnesia, while Commissioner Gordon took over as a mech-driving version of the Dark Knight, albeit temporarily. If this all sounds incredibly silly, it is, but in a way that let readers see Batman in a whole new light and which has transformed the World's Greatest Detective in often subtle, but impactful ways.

Cue The Button and a Spoiler Alert:

This recent four-issue miniseries starred our favorite hero alongside the Flash as they investigated the appearance of a happy face button. If you don't know your comics, it is a reference to perhaps the greatest single book of all time, Watchmen. Without getting into the weeds here, it's the kind of big deal which led Batman and Flash through a multi-dimension-spanning adventure -- and that's where things get interesting. 

In one of these dimensions, Batman meets his father. Only in this dimension (stay with me), Thomas Wayne became Batman after *Bruce Wayne* died. Like our own Batman, Thomas Wayne finds it difficult to be happy and, as our Batman leaves, he implores his son-from-another-dimension to give up being Batman. Only a scant few issues later, Bruce Wayne -- our Batman -- does indeed heavily contemplate these words.

It doesn't end there. We catch back up with our hero in Batman #24, and things get even more interesting. In it, Batman admits to his latest protege, a heroine known as Gotham Girl, that he isn't happy being Batman, he just is Batman. He then follows this up with a twist. Batman locates Catwoman, soars across the city skyline for a bit, and then proposes to her. 

Taken together, Batman's refusal to answer the bat signal, his unhappiness, and his proposal to Catwoman, it definitely seems like Bruce Wayne is looking for a change in his life. I understand that marriage and a moment of self-reflection don't automatically equate to retirement, but Snyder and King seem to be pushing the idea. Remember earlier when I said that Batman temporarily had amnesia? It took more than just his memory returning to spur him back into the costume. He had to be convinced that Gotham needed him, or face imminent destruction. When Batman meets Gotham Girl, we quickly learn that she has foreseen an end to our favorite hero. In an interview with Newsarama, writer Tom King stated:

"Yeah, this comes from Scott Snyder, who's probably going to kill me for sharing this. But he's one of my best friends, and he gave me this great advice. And he got the advice from Grant Morrison, who said, when you're writing Batman, you know, you're going to have a run on Batman and you have to give him a birth, and you have to give him a death...That's your responsibility as a writer."

Is this a literal death, or the end of the character as we know it? (Heck, with comics, it can be both.) Whatever it is, we know that Batman is not long for this world. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

What do you think? Is Batman set for retirement? Death? Let us know in the comments down below!

Michael Keaton Cut Over Half His Lines From Batman Returns

19 June 2017 12:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This month, Batman Returns celebrates the 25th anniversary of its release in theatres. Back then, Tim Burton’s gothic drama caused a lot of controversy for its many dark, eerie or sexual scenes. Time has been kind to it, though, as nowadays the film is regarded as a cult classic for many Bat-fans.

To celebrate the movie, The Hollywood Reporter chatted with several members of the cast and crew recently, and the juiciest nugget of info from their interview is the news that Michael Keaton asked for more than half of his lines to be cut. Here’s what screenwriter Daniel Waters had to say about it:

“My version of the script had more a lot more Batman and Bruce Wayne speeches. Michael Keaton would go through the script and say, ‘Hey, that’s a great line, but you gotta cut it. This is a good speech, but you gotta take it out. »

The Evolution of Catwoman (Infographic)

14 June 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

DC Comics character Batman was created in 1939 as the ultimate superhero detective. By 1940, he had defeated a number of petty criminals and two-bit hoodlums, and creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger were looking to give him a real adversary. They created Catwoman, an antagonist with sex appeal who could also help boost their female readership. Catwoman first appeared in Batman #1 as a jewel thief known only as The Cat. She was a villain but she didn’t actually kill anyone. This was intentional: because she wasn’t outright evil, Catwoman could serve as a femme fatale to Batman, setting

10 Awful Animated Comic Book Shows

11 June 2017 7:38 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When you think of outstanding animated comic book shows, the likes of Batman: The Animated Series and X-Men: The Animated Series immediately come to mind. They’re the flag bearers and benchmarks of what every program should aspire to achieve.

Unfortunately, not many are able to reach those lofty standards and fall way short of the mark set. Some of them even stumble out of the starting block in catastrophic fashion – and these are the ones we’ll be focusing on here. These are the worst of the worst, Aka the Halle Berry’s Catwoman of animated series.

Quality is all a matter of opinion, of course, and one man’s rubbish is another’s treasure, so we welcome healthy debate on this topic. If you happen to disagree or agree with our choices, please sound off in the comments section below. Your voice matters to us.

‘Wonder Woman’: What the McU Can Learn from the Dceu’s Latest Super-Powered Success

6 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

in 2004, Warner Bros. attempted to rollout the superheroine film Catwoman with Oscar-winner Halle Berry in the lead. 20th Century Fox and Marvel followed up a year later with a similar attempt in Elektra, starring Golden Globe-winner Jennifer Garner. Needless to say, neither film panned out as well as the studios would have hoped, critically or financially. And without even mentioning the cinematic abomination that was the 1996 Dark Horse Comics abomination Barb Wire, it's clear that female-led superhero/comic book films have had a very difficult time finding acceptance among critics and audiences alike over … »

How ‘Wonder Woman’ Can Teach the Entire Superhero Genre a Lesson and Put DC Comics Back on Top

5 June 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While it is Diana Prince’s sacred duty to defend the world, it has now become Wonder Woman’s duty to protect the future of DC Comics and the superhero genre in general. That’s thanks to the film’s solid 93 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, positive reviews and $100.5 million in opening weekend ticket sales. It should come as no surprise that a sequel is already being discussed.

Today’s Wonder Woman is more than a simple sex symbol, thrown into other superheroes’ movies to run down the beach Baywatch-style, provide an impressive spin and plucky attitude and rock a flashy cape and boots. Thanks to this new installment, she now represents something else entirely.

How 'Wonder Woman' Tackles the Superhero Movie's Greatest Foe: Sexism

5 June 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Wonder Woman is the first female-driven superhero movie to hit multiplexes since 2004's disastrous Catwoman – and in between these two comic-book–cinema poles, there's been a glut of films with masked and/or caped dudes fighting injustice and taking on imposing foes. But what's remarkable about this blockbuster (opening-weekend box office haul: $100.5 million domestic, $223 million globally) is that it may be the first comic-book film in which the obstacles aren't solely demigods, diabolical villains or a dark, tragic backstory but, rather, a society predisposed to hold back women. And while the new movie, »

Looking Back At Female Led Super Hero Films and TV Shows

3 June 2017 3:41 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Wonder Woman opened to stellar reviews this weekend and will no doubt be a huge financial hit. In honor of the Princess of the Amazons being the one to break the Dceu losing streak, Cinelinx looks back at the history of live-action superhero TV shows and movies with female leading characters.   

Wonder Woman (1974)- Appropriately, Wonder Woman was the first-ever female super hero to get a live-action adaptation. This 1974 made-for-tv movie was a pilot for an intended series. It starred former professional tennis player Cathy Lee Crosby. The blonde-haired Crosby doesn’t seem like the natural choice to play the Amazon Princess, but then again, this version of Wonder Woman was not a typical adaptation. For one thing, she had no super powers. This was based on the 1968-1972 era of the Wonder Woman comic known as “Diana Prince: The New Wonder Woman” when she lost her powers and stopped wearing her trademark costume. »

Review: Wonder Woman is a Huge Step in the Right Direction for the DC Extended Universe

3 June 2017 10:16 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

While walking into the anticipated screening of director Patty Jenkins' film Wonder Woman, two women were walking a few steps in front of me and one of them proudly said, "We finally have a superhero we can call our own." It's a pertinent comment because this Wonder Woman film is a huge step in the right direction for female-fronted superhero films, but also the DC Extended Universe, which has seen a string of disappointing superhero/antihero films, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

Looking at the history of superhero/comic book films provides an even greater depth to the comment made by the two women walking into a predominantly male-driven character genre of film. And when you look at the comic book films that promote a female lead, the results are less than favorable. DC Comics' Supergirl was released in 1984 and starred Helen Slater, »

I can't wait to see the new Wonder Woman film - especially after seeing it's still resting at 92% on Rotten Tomatoes with almost 150 critics, as of this writing. And, seriously, both DC and female heroes in general need a win right now. This is especially true of female heroes, since they have definitely had a rough go of it (the last big-budget female superhero film was probably Halle Berry's Catwoman, and even that's...

Halle Berry’s “Catwoman” Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment

31 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s funny that this should come out yesterday because I literally wrote an article questioning how Wonder Woman empowers women.   I argued and still argue that it’s sending the wrong message.   I feel as though it’s justifying women wearing skimpy outfits and it’s more than Ok for them to be superheros as long as they’re hot.   That’s the argument in a nut shell.   By the way that’s not taking away from Wonder Woman being a quality movie (assuming it is which many are saying).  I’m simply saying the women’s empowerment seems to be a very flip floppy issue.

Halle Berry’s Catwoman movie gets an Honest Trailer

31 May 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Warner Bros.’ critically acclaimed female-led DC comic book movie Wonder Woman rolling out in cinemas around the globe this week, Screen Junkies has released an Honest Trailer for Warner Bros.’ previous female-led DC comic book movie, the critically-derided 2004 Catwoman movie starring Halle Berry.

Before you see the best DC has to offer, revisit the worst in this sloppily directed, insanely edited, terribly written, ridiculously acted pile of cat barf that came out just one year before Batman Begins but feels more like the spiritual sequel to Batman and Robin. Catwoman – the movie that set the bar for women-lead-superhero movies ridiculously, ridiculously low.

18 actors whose characters were cut out of movies in post-production

The actors whose role in a film was shot, but chopped out of the final cut...

Yep, I know. I’ve read lists like this too, and I know that Eric Stoltz was cut out of Back To The Future. If it’s all well and good, I’ll leave that example out.

See related  Alien 5 to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection Alien 5: will it ever happen?

What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.

Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out of a production does have a consequence beyond ego hurting a bit. For the side effect »

Here’s Why ‘Unforgettable’ Director Denise Di Novi Will Be the Woman Who Gets Another Shot
