Screenwriter Shares Rejected Pitch For Catwoman Spinoff With Michelle Pfeiffer

It’s a sad fact that Bat-fans have had to live with that Warner Bros. attempted to develop a spinoff based on Michelle Pfeiffer’s awesome portrayal of Catwoman from 1992’s Batman Returns for about a decade before they eventually served up the godawful reboot of the character played by Halle Berry in 2004’s forgettable effort.

The reason we got that terrible movie was because the studio was never able to agree on a pitch for a Pfeiffer version. One of those that was considered, though, was from screenwriter John August. As part of a trending Twitter topic for writers to #ShareYourRejections, the Big Fish and Aladdin scribe shared the time his Catwoman pitch was thrown out when an exec decided he wanted to pursue a different take on the character, apparently setting his sights on Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar.

DC Confirms That Batman’s An Atheist

It’s not often that we think or talk about the religious beliefs of our favorite superheroes, barring the times when writers blatantly state from where these characters are coming. For example, we’re all aware of how Daredevil’s a devout Catholic, or how Batwoman’s Jewish.

Speaking of which, the latest issue of Batman really hammered home the point that the Dark Knight is, in fact, an atheist. I mean, it’s technically nothing new and has been somewhat explored in the past (I believe it was Broken City that briefly touched on this before), but the latest entry into Tom King’s ongoing saga has really gotten people talking.

You see, this all came about in the concluding chapter of “Cold Days,” an arc that saw Bruce Wayne sit on a jury deciding the fate of Mr. Freeze after he was apprehended by Batman himself. To me,

Halle Berry Celebrated Her 52nd Birthday by Smashing Cake in Her Face and We Wish We'd Been Invited

What better way to ring in your 52nd birthday than by smearing cake all over your face? Halle Berry rang in the big 5-2 on Tuesday, Aug. 14, and the actress took to Instagram to give her followers an inside look at what appeared to be the coolest celebration ever. Halle shared a funny photo of herself and her two girlfriends literally covered in cake on the social media platform (talk about the ultimate food fight!).

WB Searching For A Female Director To Helm Supergirl Movie

Like some of you reading this, I was surprised to learn last week that Warner Bros. are looking to develop a Supergirl movie, primarily due to the fact that the character also headlines a TV show that’s about to begin its fourth season. Then again, if the film and television divisions can lay claim to their own distinct versions of the Flash and Superman, then I guess we can have two Kara Zor-Els coexisting.

Of course, it’s all but assured that the small screen’s Melissa Benoist won’t be pulling double duty by playing the Maiden of Might in the feature film, so expect to see another actress donning the red and blue attire. But before we find out who’ll be cast, odds are that a director will first be attached to the picture.

Speaking of which, Deadline has learned that the studio is in search

Silver & Black Will Now Be Split Into Two Standalone Movies

Badass as Venom may look, it’s become apparent to all that Sony is just throwing whatever they can at the wall and seeing what’ll stick. I mean, do we really need solo movies for the likes of Morbius and Kraven the Hunter before they’ve been established in prior flicks? Yes, comic book readers may know who they are, but the the average moviegoer probably doesn’t – nor do they have any reason to pay for a ticket.

On that note, now seems like the opportune time to discuss the rocky road endured by Silver & Black. Having been a hot topic of discussion back in 2017, it was originally set to introduce Silver Sable and Black Cat to the big screen via a team-up picture of their own. But after news saying the project had been stuck in development begun spreading, many of us were more than ready to write it off.

Awesome Fan Art Imagines Kate Beckinsale As Catwoman

As one of the most iconic female characters DC has, Catwoman is a hotly contested role and while we’re not certain when or if we’ll see her in the Worlds of DC franchise, many actresses have still put their name forward for the part or have been suggested by fans. For instance, Eiza Gonzalez, Morena Baccarin and even The Dark Knight RisesAnne Hathaway have all been thrown around in relation to the role.

Another long running fan-cast for the character though is British actress Kate Beckinsale. After all, she’s the archetypal catsuit-clad action heroine after playing the lead in the Underworld movies since 2003. And now, to celebrate the actress’ birthday, fan artist BossLogic has come up with an image showing us what Beckinsale could look like in character as Selina Kyle.

As you can see below, this piece dresses her in the modern Catwoman costume, including a plunging neckline and goggles.

We may have found The Joker's mom. American Horror Story star Frances Conroy is currently in talks to star in the Joker origin movie alongside Joaquin Phoenix, who is already on board as the iconic DC villain. Frances Conroy will play a woman named Penny who is reportedly going to be sick and possibly dying during the events of the movie and has an obsession with her former employer. At the present time, it's unclear how sizable the role will be as plot details for the movie are being kept under wraps by the studio.

After ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ Is Marvel’s Future Female?

After ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ Is Marvel’s Future Female?
The 20th installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe also marked a franchise first.

With “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” audiences finally saw a Marvel movie co-headlined by a woman as Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne (a.k.a. the Wasp) shared center stage with Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man. The superhero sequel opened with $161 million worldwide, $76 million of which came from North America.

The estrogen injection paid off. While that’s a slower start than recent Marvel titles such as “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Black Panther,” it’s a significant jump on the original film’s $57 million domestic debut. Given that it basically made back its $175 million price tag in the first three days, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” looks to be yet another win for the Disney-owned company.

Don't Recognize Ant-Man's Original Wasp? Talk to the Hand

While it can already feel like all of your favorite actors have found their way into the McU in one way or another, Marvel continues to find ways to add new A-list talent to their ever expanding universe. The latest to join their ranks is Michelle Pfeiffer in Ant-Man and the Wasp as the original Wasp who has been lost to the Quantum Realm.

Pfeiffer first appeared in various television shows in the early 1980s, such as Delta House, B.A.D. Cats, and Fantasy Island. She had a breakout role in 1982's cult hit Grease 2, but it was really her part in 1983's Scarface (below) that put her on Hollywood's A-list.

She would go on to be nominated for Academy Awards for 1988's Dangerous Liaisons, 1989's The Fabulous Baker Boys, and 1992's Love Field. That same year, she

Michigan Comic Con Brings The Stars To Downtown Detroit This August

Being someone who’s covered conventions of varying sizes around southeast Michigan for the past five years, I’ve been clamoring for another big event aimed at the comic book crowd to come to Detroit. Like many of you, I feel that just one hasn’t been enough, and though the small and mid-sized shows are certainly lots of fun, there’s just nothing like a sprawling showroom floor populated by vendors, writers, artists and healthy amount of celebrities.

Well, soon enough, that’s going to change once the first ever Michigan Comic Con arrives in downtown Detroit this August, which is sure to satisfy our geeky needs for the summertime. And seeing as how it’s brought to us by the same folks behind Tampa Bay, San Francisco, Indiana and Atlanta Comic Cons, I think it’s safe to say we’re all in for a weekend to remember.
