Batwoman News: Teaser + a picture + some minor spoilers

[2nd post for today]

Yesterday, we finally got some promo material for season 3!

It was time the promo machine got started as the season is less than one month away (October 13).

Here is the teaser snippet:

Yeah, just some seconds…but…it’s good to know that Alice won’t just be in prison during season 3 at that would quickly get rather boring.

Also, we can see that the hunt for the trophies that Batman collected from the biggest villains is on!

Poison Ivy is confirmed and cast, but no news on the other possible villains like the Penguin.

 

If you scroll down a little to the Batwoman part….you can get more info on season 3 here:

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 6

[1st post for today, one more to come]

Time to talk about episode 6 of Stargirl!

SPOILERS ahead!

SPOILERS ahead!

SPOILERS ahead!

Last week’s episode was already a really good one with finally real screentime with Stargirl, Wildcat, and co.

Episode 6 is even better and certainly has a big gamechanger!

Due to problems with Youtube, I won’t upload any Stargirl videos anymore, so some pictures and this text has to be enough.

Pictures first:

I increased the brightness of these pictures a little….

Ok, I liked a lot of things in this one!

A new masked villainess! Of course, every one of the good guys already knows who she is…..but well, it’s a nice addition! And I like her full face mask…just like an improved version of the one her father was/is wearing.

It’s soo odd that many of the bad and good guys wear masks….but for the most time, they all know who is under which mask. And the show NEVER shows any interactions of the masked folks with any civilians who seemingly don’t know about both teams.

It’s like there are two worlds in this show, the civilians and the unmasked alter egos of the heroes and villains…… and another one where there are the bad guys and the heroes.

But ok, enough of that, back to the episode.

The fight scene in the school is well-done and pretty long….I really enjoyed that one BIG time! Good stunt work and pretty creative as well 🙂

And damn, I know Eclipso would show up sooner or later…but what a debut!

Killing off two of the bad guys! Ok, perhaps there is some chance that Cindy may show up again….but it certainly doesn’t look like that!

His appearance now changes everything! It’s no longer some teenager in masks fighting some also young villains.

Now they have to face an incredible powerful……..well……monster that is seemingly so much stronger than everything they have encountered so far.

I wonder what Artemis will do now? Will Solomon Grundy show up again? Will they all team up with The Shade and the heroes to fight Eclipso?

After the pretty slow first 4 episodes….the last one and this one have me now fully “hyped up” for the rest of the season! 😉

Here is the trailer for episode 7:

 

Masked thief in action?!?

I was thrilled as I heard that Barbara Gordon would be in season 3 of “Titans” and that Gotham would be the setting during that season.

Of course, I had hoped that then Batgirl would be in the show….but the plot takes place years after she quit being Batgirl as she was severely injured and actually lost a leg(!), unlike in the comics.

That news pretty much killed a lot of my anticipation towards the season, but I decided to watch it anyhow.

And that was a good decision as I enjoyed the 7 episodes that have been aired so far.

In one of these episodes, we get 2 scenes that are very well suited for this blog!

Preview:

And here are the videos:

Watch the videos before you continue!

Well, that was a NICE surprise! Barbara Gordon as a masked thief 🙂

A little disappointing that she unmasked herself, but well, still a really good scene.

I like how she makes fun of Robin and fights him with just one hand.

The second scene is also good as she gets in real trouble there! Of course, I hoped the villainess would reach for the mask or a punch would unmask Barbara as her mask isn’t exactly well secured.

These scenes are placed before she actually became Batgirl.

I do HOPE that we get more flashbacks of her….would love to see her in the Batgirl costume, even it may “only” be the one with an eye mask.

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 5

I really like season 2 of Stargirl so far….but in terms of the screentime of the masked heroines….we got pretty little in the first 4 episodes.

Luckily there is plenty of Stargirl, Wildcat, and Dr. Midnite in this one! 🙂

In this post, you will find 2 videos with over 7 minutes of the masked ladies.

There is even a 2-minute scene with the unmasked Stargirl where she talks to her dad.

And when she isn’t wearing her mask…the scene doesn’t fully qualify for this blog 😉

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

I really like the dark horror atmosphere that is building up this season.

And from what I heard….there is much more to come 😉

It’s very interesting how Eclipso lets them face their worst fears to manipulate them. I wonder how they will deal with that in the future!

I expected Wildcat to unmask herself as the loud noise was tormenting her but I’m glad that she had enough self-discipline to NOT take her mask off as that would be quite dangerous even at night in the school, someone could show up or cameras could be in place.

It still annoys me that basically everyone they encounter does know who they are under these masks….but well, hopefully, some folks will show up that don’t know their secret.

And still, even the bad guys know….I hope for a scene in which someone would unmask Stargirl or Wildcat…just to show them that they are “superior” or because they wanna see the unmasked face.

The storyline with Cindy wanna recruit Mike for the bad guys is promising, that could become potential pretty…..disastrous….. for the Whitmore family.

What is also interesting is that you now have basically 3 “camps” of villains right now:

  • Eclipso, the big, all-powerful force.
  • Then we have the Shade, who seems very much afraid of Eclipso.
  • And there is also Cindy and her new recruits.

I have the feeling that these 5 episodes of the season were only the foreplay and now things will really come in motion 😉

 

Here is the trailer for episode 6:

The “Nightwatchman” in action! – Scene 6

[Post 2 of 2 for today]

As promised another scene with the Nightwatchman today!

Robin is imprisoned and gets tortured by the bad guys, time for the Nightwatchman to save him!

Especially as the woman inside that costume is in love with Robin 😉

But Guy of Gisborne is determined to catch the masked vigilante and find out how actually is under these masks!

And here are the videos:

You have the choice….

English audio, but “just” SD/DVD quality:

HD/1080p quality, but with German audio:

Sorry, due to some technical difficulties 1080p+English isn’t available for this blog right now (just for this scene).

But I’m sure you can live with it well.

WATCH the video before you go on!

Well, that was a pretty close call for the Nightwatchman!

I love how he demands her to unmask herself! Luckily she won’t give up easily.

It’s great how the situation even gets more dangerous for her as the Sheriff sneaks up on her and holding his pretty big dagger to her throat. His diabolical smile…. is awesome!

Now she is really in big danger, every second a hand could reach for her masks and begin to UNMASK her.

I just love the tension in such scenes….really well done here!

In my version, a hand would actually start to yank on her mask but she would then escape the danger quickly.

I do have one more scene with the Nightwatchman…..and that is the best one, you might imagine why 😉

Wanna know from which episode this is?

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 4 – ….well…. [+Batwoman stunt video]

[Post 1 of 2 for today]

Well, I could pretty much copy and paste my words from the review of episode 2.

In episode 1 we got less than 3 minutes of Stargirl and her team, without any action.

In episode 2 we got no masked woman on screen at all.

In episode 3 we got over 6 minutes with the team and at least action for half a minute.

In episode 4…..there are….23….seconds(!!) of Stargirl in it as she is prepping to leave her home. Yeah, that’s right, 23 seconds. 🙁

So far season 2 of STARGIRL had very, very, very little Stargirl (or Wildcat) in it.

Again the episode is interesting and I really like how the story is going in general.

What I don’t like is again that Stargirl and her team basically don’t have secret identities.

Spoilers ahead!

The Shade knows immediately who Stargirl is, most likely to the brilliant move that her father showed up with the team as they meet.

The Tigress and Crusher escape from prison and they know since the end of season 1 who is under these masks.

Sometimes I don’t know why they even are wearing these masks. So far we saw no interactions at all with any civilians who basically don’t know that they exist(?).

And all the villains learn their “not so secret”-secret identities really quick. 🙁

I wish that Stargirl and Co would have some random bad guys to beat up who at least wouldn’t know who they are.

I do like how Cindy is building up a team of villains, a new Injustice Society. Will be interesting to see how the different evil parties will interact with each other. Hard to say what the plan of the Shade really is.

The trailer for the next episode is actually really promising and shows only scenes with Stargirl and the others!

….so as I am a little disappointed so far….I’m pretty hyped for the next episode!

Things finally seem to start rolling in the action department. 🙂

 

Marshall Virtue posted this video, he is a/the stunt coordinator of the Batwoman show.
In this great video, you can see the pre-visualization of some stunts from seasons 1 and 2:

Pretty awesome video and an interesting behind-the-scenes look!

Batwoman news: Poison Ivy + Fandome

More news on season 3 of Batwoman!

It was already clearly “hinted” in the last episode of season 2 that Poison Ivy may appear in the upcoming season, now we got the news that an actress has been chosen for the role!

So, it’s no secret anymore that Poison Ivy indeed will show up and will be among the villains of the season.

Bridget Regan will play the part!

https://deadline.com/2021/08/batwoman-bridget-regan-play-poison-ivy-in-season-3-cw-1234824460/

I have seen her in “The last ship” and “Agent Carter” but honestly can’t remember her part in it since these shows are some years old by now and only watched them once.

But I’m looking forward to seeing how she will play the part. I’m happy that she is playing a grown-up version of Ivy, unlike the one we got in the Gotham series.

And we got a trailer for the DC FanDome (October 16):

Batwoman is also in the lineup and I expect some interesting interviews or footage from season 3.

This year the FanDome event is actually placed after the start of the Batwoman season (October 13), but I hope they will save some great news for the FanDome.

Also looking forward to seeing hopefully more from Catwoman in new “The Batman” footage and to get more info on “Gotham Knights” the video game.

The “Nightwatchman” in action! – Scene 5

Time for another scene with the Nightwatchman in action!

I intended to post 2 scenes today…but the 2nd one was problematic. The audio switched to german every time, even I selected to use the English one.

Even there isn’t much dialogue in this scene, I want the damn program to work and that you all can watch the scene with English dialogue for the best experience.

But, don’t worry, I will upload scene 6 next Thursday, so you won’t have to wait for long.

And the BIG, last scene 7 will then follow on a weekend.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1z4T3JvbSq9sW35tkzS9VZ_TOKpTK6H57/view?usp=sharing

Watch the video before you continue!

I really like this scene big time! By this time I care about her in the show a lot and really rooting for her. She gets trapped in that room, the evil Guy of Gisborne is just outside the door, breaking it down pretty quickly. With the axe and the damaged doors he somehow reminds me a lot of a certain Jack N. in “The Shining” 😉 , especially as he is watching her through the damaged door.

You can see the fear on her face, she is breathing heavily through the cloth cover above her mouth. She now she can’t escape….he is outside the door and there are plenty of guards there as well.

A great setting!

As soon they rush in they would overpower her sooner or later and then would UNMASK her! Her life as well as her father’s life would be in grave danger as the Nightwatchman is a big enemy of the Sheriff. He would also find the woman that he loves under the mask….but she is in love with someone else…..

The way he sneakily attacks her with that dagger….wow….worthy of a real villain.

Of course, she survives that in the end, even she actually seemingly dies.

But that was revealed one episode later….providing a major cliffhanger.

As I already knew she would be in season 2….I wasn’t surprised….but imagining watching the show back then when it first aired….they surely tortured the audience quite well. 😉

Wanna know from which episode this is?

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 3 – finally some action!

I made an update on the Batwoman post below this one, check it out!

So, time to talk about episode 3 of Stargirl (season 2)!

After very little of Stargirl and her team in episode 1 and no scenes with them at all in episode 2….we FINALLY get a solid screentime with the masked ladies!

And we get some action and peril as well….but check out my 2 videos first!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

I really like The Shade as a villain so far….we know not much about him yet, but I like his style. And he surely seems to be pretty powerful that he could easily defeat the whole team.

They will have to find ways to defeat him…..and he won’t be the only villain they have to face.

The episode was pretty good, I could go without the whole magic pen and the Thunderbolt figure….but ok, I guess that might be an important factor later on when the bad guys wanna win him over to the dark side 😉

I read that this season will get pretty dark and I’m excited about it. I want the team to get tested to their limits and I prefer the dark(er) shows anyhow.

Of course, if I would be him and would have pinned them down like that….I might use these powers to yank their masks off as I am verrrry curious 😉

But on the other hand, it’s good to have a villain here that doesn’t know their secret identities from the start, I do hope that it stays like that for a while.

Perhaps later on he wants to find out who is behind these masks….and then PLEASE…..by removing their masks and not by some silly discovery as it happens WAY too often.

Or how about he attempting to unmask Stargirl or Wildcat? That would be quite awesome as well 😉

Looking forward to seeing how the plot unfolds. So far, we practically can only guess what the evil plan of the villains will be and how it all connects.

But with this episode…the season has really started for me!

Have you seen the episode already?

Batwoman UPDATE – August 25 —- [EDIT: August 26]

It’s time for a quick Batwoman update!

Season 3 is 49 days away (October 13) and it was rather quiet in the last weeks after the 3 casting announcements earlier.

Some set pictures surfaced on social media and I wanna show them here, first these two:

(click to enlarge)

If you check out these pictures in detail and watched the episodes you can spot a small costume change.

As you can see in this comparison from Batwoman Brasil:

….they seemingly changed the wig a little as it has less “volume” now in season 3, and it seems that the hair is now a little longer.

Will have to see if other shots will confirm that, but I’m pretty sure this change is no accident.

Well, I do prefer the new(er) look as the wig is less dominant….which is a good thing for me.

 

And when I see these first two pictures….I can’t wait to see Batwoman and Batwing in their first action scenes together!

Also, I do hope that we will see some promo material very soon!

 

*EDIT* August 26:

More news on Batwoman!

It’s not about season 3 this time….but about the Flash TV show!

To be precise it’s about the first 5 episodes of season 8 of The Flash.

Among other characters, Batwoman will appear in this 5 episode event that is called Armageddon! 🙂

https://deadline.com/2021/08/the-flash-lineup-of-superheroes-villains-revealed-for-5-part-season-8-launch-event-1234821825/

Ok, I don’t know how big her part in these episodes is…but even if she would be only in one episode for 5 minutes….it would be great.

And I think she will have much more screentime than that 😉

It’s also nice to see Atom and Black Lightning again…as well as Alex as “her” Supergirl show should be still running by then.

But …besides Batwoman…. I’m most excited about having Mia Queen back in her costume and mask!

For me, it was sad news that she and the other Canaries didn’t get the TV show that she deserved in my eyes.

Well, first Batwoman comes back in October (13), and ….starting on November 16… we get this “Armageddon” event with 5 episodes.

I’m very much thrilled! 😉

 

The adventures of the masked Rubberwoman! – BONUS post

Well, some weeks ago I didn’t think I would make a third post about this TV show and this murderous Rubberwoman (official title, it’s actually latex)….but here we are.

After the Rubberwoman appeared in the first two episodes of the show, the show continued as an anthology show, each episode had different characters and different storylines.

But now in episode 7….the Rubberwoman returns alongside some familiar characters!

She doesn’t get a lot of screentime….but she has two nice scenes that I wanna present here.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Yeah, she isn’t masked for very long, but I LOVE two things about these scenes:

First the kiss with her hot girlfriend that kisses her passionately on the gag (right term?). Very sexy!

Love how her hands are on the sides of the mask while they kiss.

Also, the scene where she is laying in bed and then suddenly that latex hand appears is a nice surprise to see her girlfriend dressed up like this!

Even it’s a shame we didn’t get to see more of her as we only get that one side angle, but ok… still a really nice ending and her girlfriend looks awesome in that suit 🙂

I really like the overall storyline of this episode with the woman trying to make a video game about the murder house. Also, it was great to have some video game scenes in the intro of the episode.

 

I doubt we will see these two again on the show in these roles….but well, that’s what I said some weeks earlier after episode 2.

So….perhaps…..just perhaps…..Rubberwoman might return….again! 😉

Still don’t know which show/episode this is?

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 2 – (very short) Review

This will be an extra short review….because……well…..there isn’t much to talk about in the new episode.

Well, in terms of this blog at least.

Don’t get me wrong, it was an enjoyable episode that had some good scenes and built up the storylines further.

But in terms of action, the episode had very little and in terms of masked women…..the episode had NOTHING at all.

Actually, it was the first Stargirl episode ever without a masked woman at all….so I won’t post a video with this one.

In the first episode of this season, we had a short scene with Stargirl and her team right at the beginning without action…and that was it.

In this one, we have…..not even that.

The episode was basically there to introduce the new Green Lantern Jennifer and the villain The Shade.

All that was interesting but not insanely thrilling.

The episode ended with Courtney grabbing her staff and getting ready for action as Stargirl.

So, it’s safe to say that we finally get some action with Stargirl and her team in the episode next week.

Also, I am curious to see Jennifer’s costume and if it includes a mask.

And if yes, it’s hopefully a good one….

The “Nightwatchman” in action! – Scenes 3 + 4

The Nightwatchman returns for two more scenes!

(or NightwatchWOman as she should be called)

 

Check out my first post about her if you haven’t already:

And here is the Video:

…not welcome on Youtube….

Watch the video before you continue!

Only a very short scene, but already a really good one for me!

The villain has stopped her, everything is at stake for her as he really wants to know who the Nightwatchman is.

The moron hasn’t realized that the masked vigilante is a woman….damn, he must really get some glasses! 😉

I love that she managed to suppress a scream or moan as that might give away that the Nightwatchman isn’t a man like nearly everyone believes so far.

She does everything to keep her identity as safe as possible…in all regards.  And I really love that!

And it won’t be the last time he tries to capture her… 😉

…not welcome on Youtube….

Another fine scene! Great to see her putting on her maskS 🙂

Luckily for her father, she is in full costume as these bandits rob the house…she saves the day!

The fight scene is done really well, and with her full masquerade, it’s rather easy to put a stuntwoman in that costume and do the action part…

I just love action scenes with such a masked woman! So much can happen, and it’s a real thrill ride for me.

In the end, she is victorious and unmasks herself for a chat with Robin, a nice bonus!

And I do have 3 more scenes with her….she will get in a LOT of trouble….. as evil Guy of Gisborne wants to know who is behind these masks of hers!

 

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 1 – Review

Finally, season 2 of Stargirl has now started and I wanna make my short review of episode 1!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

 

The bad guys have been defeated at the end of season 1 and are either dead, in prison, or missing.

Much like this entire episode, things are rather quiet now in Blue Valley.

Stargirl, Wildcat, Hourman, and Dr. Midnite are still patrolling the streets at night but there is nothing to do at all and all (except Stargirl) wanna take a break from superhero life.

The episode focuses on building around the personal problem of each of them.

Courtney (Stargirl) is so focused on being Stargirl and finding other ISA members that she fails at school.

Yolanda (Wildcat) is haunted by the death of Brainwave who she killed in the season 1 finale. But she can’t speak to anyone (outside the JSA) about it as that would endanger her secret identity.

Beth (Dr. Midnite) finds out that her parents are seeking a divorce and is troubled by not being able to interact with Charles, the AI from her goggles.

Rick (Hourman) is occupied with providing food to Solomon Grundy who is living in the woods now.

Building these backstories to the characters is important and I liked them except the one with Rick as I don’t understand why he is now caring about the monster that killed his parents. Yeah, he saw a “good” site on Solomon in the season 1 finale…but it’s still hard to believe how he changed from wanting to kill him to now providing buckets of chicken for him.

I love how passionate Courtney is about being Stargirl. She fully embraces her role.

Maybe a little too much…. as her school and social life comes too short.

There is very little action in this one….but well, it’s a typical first episode to a season.

Green Lantern’s daughter Jade has her first appearance in the only real action scene. So far hard to tell, how big her role will be.

I hope she will be a good addition to the good side. Of course, I also hope that her costume will include a mask….but we will see.

So, in terms of action or peril, the episode delivers very, very little. But it was an important one for the storyline.

And this connects me to the characters and is very important for the “immersion” (in my opinion).

If I don’t care about the characters…it’s a massive minus for a movie or TV show.

This episode was a good start, but certainly not one of my favorites.

 

Hopefully, the action will start rolling in episode 2.

Speaking of it….here is the trailer:

The adventures of the masked Rubberwoman! (Post 2 of 2)

The Rubberwoman returns!

Check out the first post about her, if you haven’t already….

I have prepared another 2 videos for you folks, and this time it gets pretty violent, I used age restrictions for both videos as these surely aren’t suited for kids.

In the first scene, 4 of Scarlett’s classmates arrive at her home. These 4 terrorized her BIG time and now it’s time for some ….rather drastic….revenge!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

I just love how the score is so “opposite” to what is happening in that scene. You hear that happy kids song and you see such violence on screen. A great contrast, works really well for me!

Also, I love how she unmasks herself and then finishes the last of these evil girls off. Well, killing them off isn’t exactly justice, no matter what they did, but if you have seen what they did to her……you are rooting for the Rubberwoman ;-).

I have another short scene, I could have made the video a lot longer, but it’s “just” her in the suit without her mask and without action.

In this short one we do have more nice elements….check it out!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

I’m happy and a little sad about this scene at the same time.

It’s great that we get another unmasking and masking in it. But it’s also a wasted “opportunity” for me.

She is in her suit and fully masked, the girls are there and now have a chance against Rubberwoman as they are outside the house.

But Rubberwoman runs away immediately (makes sense) and unmasks herself (damn it!).

And I cut the video there as nothing more is happening, she hides….and they don’t find her.

It would have been great to see these 4 girls battling her. In my version that would render her helpless and then would slowly tear her mask apart as they enjoy humiliating her and also wanna expose Scarlett’s face.

But ok, in the end, these two episodes had around 17 minutes of a woman in a latex catsuit! So, nothing much to complain about, especially as she is also (fully) masked in several scenes.

Two EPIC episodes for sure!

 

By now episodes 3 to 5 were also shown and I learned on the “Behind the mask” forum that the actress that played Rubberwoman will return in episode 7!

That doesn’t mean for sure that Rubberwoman will return…as this is an Anthology series where actors play different parts…..but there IS a chance!

We soon will know more!

What do you think of these scenes?
