Skilled assassin VS Blackbird and Grace [Black Lightning]

Black Lightning has only a few episodes left in its final season, but it still delivers good scenes with masked women!

And this one is so far the best of the season. We have a nice fight scene with a skilled assassin that fights Blackbird and Grace, who both have really good masks…in my opinion.

Earlier in the episode, the assassin tortured a guy so he would give up the secret identity of Blackbird, but he didn’t as he just didn’t know who she is.

She actually keeps her secret identity really well…..secret 🙂

But the assassin manages to find Blackbird and Grace….

And here is the scene:

Watch the video first before you continue!

As I said before I really like these masks! They cover their faces effectively but still show the eyes and parts of the upper face. These “half masks” are a good compromise between these tiny eye masks (example: Black Cat) and full-face masks (example: Spider-Gwen) for me.

The fight with him is pretty long and I was quite thrilled as I watched it as I always hoped he would manage to unmask one of them or both. Damn, how great it would be if at least his hand would have yanked on one of the masks in an attempt to yank them off.

But still, this is quite a highlight for me as you won’t find many scenes like that! Not one but two really well masked women in a long fight with a skilled attacker….rare stuff!

He is still out there to hunt down Blackbird…so I hope for more action scenes with him and other masked women in the next weeks. 😉

That is the episode with this fight scene:

Batwoman news: Promo posters and behind the scenes pictures

Before the “regular” weekly post on Sunday, I wanna make a quick post today about the Batwoman TV show as I stumbled upon some really cool pictures this week!

 

For starters, these new Batwoman promo posters were published yesterday:

(click to enlarge to full size)

Really cool promo poster! I especially like that Ryan/Batwoman have the exact same head pose, so it shows her transformation by putting on her Batwoman cowl.

One of them already made it into the new headline of this blog 😉

A nice template for how she looks unmasked!

Would be pretty cool if someone would movie her unmasked head onto the version with the costume……

 

Rachel Skarsten posted these pictures on her Instagram yesterday:

The Kane family reunited! Well, except Mary to be precise. At least they are together on set for now, but that will happen on the show as well…sooner or later.

Jacob (Dougray Scott) looks so weird with that happy smile 😆 ….as he normally is mostly sad or angry on the show.

Can’t wait to see Wallis Day on the show…… as the

Spoiler title
three short Kate Kane scenes only showed a bandaged woman….that could have been as well played by a stuntwoman.
.

Will finally watch (at least) the first couple of episodes of Krypton the next few days to see her in action for a longer time.

Also, Christina Wolfe posted this picture:

(click to enlarge)

The first behind-the-scenes picture that I found of her in the Batwoman costume and cowl!

It was great to see her in that suit back in season 1 (episode 7)! Well, perhaps she will put that one again for a mission in the future…or another costume with a mask….that would be really great!

I wanna promote a really good site for Batwoman fans:

https://batwoman.tv/

I am on that site pretty often, it’s a really good source for recaps, picture galleries, trailers, casting news, and synopsizes of future episodes (which I link to in the Batwoman sites here on the blog)!

You can easily create an account there and then comment on their posts or visit the forum for discussions with other fans!

Wallis Day cast as the new Kate Kane [Batwoman TV show] + Update, March 25

I was thinking about writing about the BIG casting news in my post from Monday that you will find below this one, but I wanted to give you a bigger chance to watch the episode before hearing the news 😉

And also, this deserves an extra post!

As the news got out last year that Ruby Rose was leaving the show….new names for her recast quickly popped up.

A name that was mentioned pretty often: Wallis Day.

Last year I made a post about the possible recast actresses and she was the first I mentioned in it.

 

Check out my post from last year:

https://maskripper.org/batwoman-casting-news-rumors-1-wallis-day-katy-m-obrian-peyton-e-list

And here is the news about Wallis Day:

(Left: Wallis Day in her role in Krypton – Right: Ruby Rose as Batwoman)

Some more pictures of Wallis:

I am very thrilled about this recast as I thought from day one that Kate Kane would be recast and return to the show at one point.

I expected her to re-appear near the end of season 2. Well, now she already is in the show in the middle of season 2.

But the question is: How long will it take her to escape that basement/sewer dungeon? How long will it take the others to realize that she is still alive?

So, I think it will take a while to see the new Kate be reunited with her loved ones after all. And they will certainly be much surprised to see how she had changed.

There are now so many questions that puzzle me. Why is she there? Who put her there and keeps her locked away? What kind of injuries did she suffer? Are these injuries from the plane crash? Is the one who is responsible for the plane crash the same one who keeps her locked away? etc.

I hope we will see Wallis Day in the next episode, even I do think she might have these bandages on for a while….after all, she seemed to have gotten some facial surgery as she now looks different.

I will watch now (at least) some episodes of Krypton as I never have seen Wallis Day in anything, except short video clips.

UPDATE, March 25:

We finally know who will play Black Mask just some days before the first episode with him airs!

Peter Outerbridge will play the masked evil mastermind!

(click to enlarge)

I know him mostly from “Nikita” and “The Expanse”, but I have seen some other shows and movies with him as well.

Looking forward to see him in the role! Especially as he might be THE big villain for the rest of the season.

New promo poster, some behind the scenes pictures + trailer for episode 7 [Batwoman]

There wasn’t a new Batwoman episode last Sunday as the CW was airing the Critics Choice Awards.

Episode 7 “It’s Best You Stop Digging” will be aired next Sunday (March 14).

Today I wanna make a quick post as I forgot to post the newest, really cool promo poster!

Also, I will post some “behind the scenes” pictures I found over the last 2 weeks.

The new promo poster:

(click to enlarge)

A cool poster for sure! As all the other ones were pretty dark, it’s good to have one which has a much brighter tone.

Still looking for an image with a higher resolution than this one (1080×1350) of this poster as it would look really cool on a wall.

Here are some behind the scenes pictures:

(click to enlarge)

Also, I wanna put the trailer for the next episode in here, as he

Spoiler title
spoilers some….action….that is related to this blog. 😉

But be WARNED, if you want to be surprised, don’t watch this teaser.

Don’t read any further until you have seen the trailer!

Yeah, I know that Batwoman/Ryan is desperate to get to kill Alice as she thinks she will die soon because of her Kryptonite wound.

But Alice really finds out the secret identity of Batwoman way too easy for my taste. In season 1 she noticed her sister’s eyes under the cowl in episode 2. Here the new Batwoman unmasks herself willingly to get her personal revenge on Alice.

In season 1 Alice had her reasons to not let everyone know that Kate is Batwoman as she wanted to destroy Batwoman and at the same time wanted to keep her sister Kate safe.

But now, with Ryan the situation is different. Alice won’t be killed in the episode, that’s 99,99999999% sure. So, Alice could easily use her knowledge of Batwoman’s secret identity to her advantage at any time. For example, she could easily blackmail Batwoman to expose her secret identity if she would come after Alice again…

I wonder how that will play out. And I surely don’t want that her secret identity to get exposed to the public as that would be the end for Ryan ….and maybe even her team?

3 masked heroines in Black Lightning (Grace, Lightning, Blackbird)

I was watching the latest Black Lightning episode and wasn’t really thrilled about it as there wasn’t much action in it and not anyone in costume in the whole episode.

But then, right before the end…. a really cool scene developed!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Yeah, it’s only a rather short action scene and there is “mask action”….but to have 3 masked women in one picture is already a great feature! 🙂

I really like Blackbird’s mask as it is designed very well for me and also disguises her identity really well in combination with that hood.

Would love to see someone yanking that mask off her face at one point!

I never was thrilled about Thunder’s mask as it is only an eye mask that practically covers nothing. And it also didn’t help that the character has now this short haircut.

Grace looks really good with that leather mask that she debuted in this episode. I hope that she will have more appearances alongside Blackbird in this final season!

 

And of course, you can find more scenes with masked heroines in practically every episode of Black Lightning, starting in season 2.

I posted “just” the highlights on this blog so far.

This is the episode in which you can find the scene:

The post is a little later as usual, but I had a rather unusual thing to do yesterday, so I didn’t have enough time to write the review on Monday evening as usual.
