Batwoman and Batgirl casting news!

I’m a little late with sharing the news, so it’s about time to make a post here with all the relevant news of this week (so far)!

 

1 – Filming for season 3 of Batwoman started on July 19

I hope that the Covid restrictions are now less of a problem as they affected the filming of action and intimate scenes in season 2.

So far it’s unknown (to the public) how many episodes will be made, of course, I hope for as many episodes as possible 😉

 

2 – Victoria Cartagena has been cast for the role of Renee Montoya [Batwoman, season 3]

Victoria played the same role in the Gotham TV show and now she returns to the role in the upcoming season 3 of Batwoman.

At IMDB she is listed for 22 episodes in the Gotham TV show, but in 15 of those as “credits only”.

I do hope that her role in the Batwoman show will be a little bigger.

Also, it will be interesting to see how her relationship with Batwoman/Ryan will be. Will she find out that Ryan is Batwoman? Will she work alongside Batwoman? Will they even become a couple?

I predict a sure “yes” to the first two questions. Not so sure about the other one… 😉

So far I haven’t seen much of Victoria….but that will now change very soon.

 

3 – Leslie Grace will play Batgirl in the upcoming HBO Max Batgirl movie

This movie is in development for the last 400 years (feels like it) and now it finally has an actress for the leading role!

Leslie Grace will take the double role as Barbara Gordon and Batgirl.

On her own Twitter channel, she describes herself as “Singer/Songwriter” and “Sony Music Latin Artist”.

Her IMDB entry is very short as she has little acting experience…so far.

I have never seen her on-screen, but I will check out some of her music videos for sure in the upcoming days.

Looking forward to seeing how she will look and act in the role of Barbara Gordon and Batgirl.

I do hope that she doesn’t get one of the newer purple Batgirl costumes….but I have a bad feeling about it.

A talented artist on Instagram already put her in the Batgirl costume from the Arkham video games which would be my favorite choice:

His channel on Instagram:

I hope the movie will now quickly made progress and will debut in 2023, which should be doable.

But until then we will get a lot of more news on it and I’m looking forward to it.

P.S.:

Recently I started to use the Maskripper Instagram account a lot more actively and started to post there as well, feel welcome to check it out!

Catwoman’s first (real) appearance in the Gotham TV show [+ 2 scenes with Selina]

Ok, folks, back to the normal….”post on sunday” schedule!

In the last episode of Gotham (ever), we see a 10 years time jump in the future. And for that they choose a new actress as Catwoman/Selina Kyle. Since Camren Bicondova is still pretty young it would look weird if she would play a ten-year older self. So they choose Lili Simmons (you should know her from the TV series Banshee!) for playing the role.

For this video I included all the Catwoman scenes and 2 scenes with Selina Kyle.

And here is the video:

As I just saw this last episode of the series two days ago. I am pretty sad that it is all over.
I had high hopes in that series. It delivered a lot. I hoped for a VERY long run to see Selina and Bruce grow into Catwoman and Batman.
And at the beginning of season 4 Selina put on a mask for two episodes. I hoped that would be the start of her transformation into Catwoman.
Well….yes and no. She nearly always had her black leather clothes and her claws on the gloves. But no more mask and no real Catwoman outfit. 😞

On the good side this first real Catwoman appearance on the show did soften my pain of “parting” a little.
I’m a pretty uncritical guy…but…………….
This Catwoman outfit….well, it looks like they quickly put it together without much thinking or money.
This cowl/mask…. I guess it is no coincidence we don’t get to see it for a real close-up.
This visor on the cowl……MY GOD!!!  That is not Catwoman!
No cat-ears??? WHY???? 😖 That is not Catwoman!
I guess they were so ashamed of that mask that they didn’t show it in a close up.

What is weird, she is never called Catwoman in the episode. Is that the reason her mask looks like that?
90% of the (at least solid) cosplayers can design a better Catwoman mask than this. 😄

What is weird, she never is called Catwoman in the episode. Is that the reason her mask looks like that?

And she pulls off her mask in the middle of her heist……WELL, THAT is a great idea!!! 😱
(seems to be some sort of ….disease under the masked women lately (in Arrow and now in Gotham), unmasking for no reason and risking exposure)
*Rant over*

Gotham is over. Arrow is over next year.
DAMN I do need the confirmation that Batwoman will get the OK for season 1. 🙏

Ok, two things I do like regarding her mask. It does cover her face pretty well….and…with that 4 press buttons it is secured at least a little (unlike other masks that a child could just pull off with 2 fingers…).

*EDIT, April 30*

Thanks to a friendly user….here is a picture that provides a better look at the costume:

(click to enlarge to full size)

Well, it was good there was this last episode with the real Catwoman…but that outfit is pretty different from any Catwoman outfit from the movies and comics. And the only thing that says “Catwoman” are the claws on these gloves.

What do you think of her costume?

And of the decision to cast Lilli Simmons for that role?

My day at the german comic con Dortmund 2019 (spring edition)

This year they had an additional comic con in Dortmund…the spring edition! (The “regular” is always in early december).

After I visited the last 2 that were held in 2017 and 2018, this was my 3rd comic con.

Here you can find my reports on them:

comic con Dortmund 2017 (especially recommended! – Batgirls + Catwoman)

comic con Dortmund 2018

There are several reasons I started to go on these Con’s.

– I wanna see some stars from the movies and TV.

– I like to see all the cosplayers, the artists and the merchandise stalls.

– And I wanna see some masked women like Batgirls, Catwomen, Batwomen, Spider-girls and so on.

 

….well….the first two worked very good. As I love the Gotham TV show it was a great joy to see so many of the cast in one place. And the other stars were interesting as well!

There were a lot of great cosplays and I found some good stuff at the merchandise stalls as well.

But masked women? Well, yes…but not ONE of real interest to me. There were some “masked” Star wars girls (well, only masked by a lot of face paint). There were a Catwoman, a Batgirl and a Huntress…but all with pretty cheap costumes. There was a Speedy (from Arrow, with an eye mask).

And quite some Spider-girls and Gwens…..but ALL without a mask! I guess they all thought….”they can’t see my  pretty face when I’m wearing a mask”. Well, that’s true, but in my opinion running around with the mask would be the right thing to do as it is the “normal” costume (for Spider-Girl/Gwen). I never saw a Batman without a cowl on all these comic cons.

But I know this from Instagram, there a quite a lot of Spider-girl/gwen cosplayers who present most …or all pictures without the mask.

Sometimes I think that is an ego-think…

And somehow I didn’t want to ask them to put on their masks, so I could make a picture 😉

Ok, time for a video for you folks:

It wasn’t as crowded as on the last 2 cons in december.

Perhaps many folks are happy with one con a year (and only 4 months since the last one). But there will be 2 again next year.

Let’s see if enough folks will come to keep that up.

Some pictures I made:

All in all it was a fun day to remember, even I did not see really good cosplays with masked women. Perhaps next december.

Or I need to find a con were it is all about DC comics…and not to far away. One day I would like to attend the big comic con in San Diego.

Feel welcome to leave your comments below!

Did you ever visit such a con? Did you like it?

The next crossover of the Arrowverse will introduce….BATWOMAN (and Gotham)!!!!

[1st post for today]

For those who haven’t read my post on “Behind the mask!”…….

The news is so big it needs to be on the blog as well 😉

Just read this news:
http://ew.com/tv/2018/05/17/cw-superher … r-batwoman

 

WOW, that’s so FUCKING GREAT! 😁
Short version: In the next crossover event of the CW shows (The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow) Batwoman AND Gotham City will be introduced!!!! That will be aired in december.
That will bring up great possibilities in the future.:
Perhaps characters like Catwoman and Batgirl as well? Perhaps an own Batwoman Show?

Oh man, this news makes me happy….very, very happy!
I hope they don’t screw up the costume. I want that Batwoman mask from the comics. A big mask that hides her little secret perfectly.
Well, since her mask wasn’t changed in the years in the comics, I hope they just took that version.

Harley Quinn UNMASKED! [Gotham]

In the Gotham episode that was shown last week a masked woman is introduced! A masked woman with three short scenes. And in one she fights against Gordon!

And the chances are very high that this masked girl is/will become Harley Quinn! The villainess that is madly in love with the Joker.

And during the fight Gordon wants to find out who is hiding under that mask 🙂

Preview:

And here is the video:

A very cool scene!

I like the fact that Gordon really goes for her mask at the moment he gets the chance! I hate it when these opportunities won’t be used. Like in the Black Scorpion TV-series. Some villains just walked away after knocking out Black Scorpion….

But you don’t need a mask (unmasking) fetish like us to wanna see the face behind a mask. So Gordon unmasks her…

Ok, she is knocked out during the unmasking, always a minus for me. And the mask is going off to easy…it seems that she only used some sort of glue to stick the mask to her face.

But what I really like is the fact that she is still somehow a little “masked” with that Harley-hood which is still in place. Ok he sees her face completely, but not her hair.

He recognises her but the viewer still haven’t seen her full head.

That is revealed in a later scene….

In case you wanna know the episode in which this scene is:

Catwoman spotted! [Gotham TV show]

For today I wanna recommend you two things. First:

Watch Gotham! Season 4 just started with the first episode and some days ago we got a trailer for season 4.

[minor SPOILERs]

A trailer where you can actually see Selina Kyle for the first time with a MASK. Her first step to become the great Catwoman!

Here are the pictures:

(click to enlarge to full size)

Isn’t that something? We see her first catsuit and her mask 🙂

Looking forward to see that combined in moving pictures! Oh man, that is exactly what I hoped for as the show started. To see Selina become Catwoman.

Here is the trailer, but be warned: The first two minutes are a recap of the things that happened before season 4.

Trailer:

Support Gotham and watch that show! I hope that show runs for another couple of years.
