Gotham Knights: Casting news #1

Time to post about some news regarding the “Gotham Knights” TV show!

So far, just a pilot was ordered by the CW which will be filmed next month. But finally, we are getting some casting news.

Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara are playing Harper Row and Cullen Row.

Harper Row is sometimes also Bluebird in the comics:

So, I hope she will appear in a mask and costume in the show as well! 😉

More details on these two characters:

https://www.ksitetv.com/gotham-knights/fallon-smythe-and-tyler-dichiara-are-the-cws-first-gotham-knights/226070/

 

Three more characters have been cast!

Duela, Carrie Kelley, and Turner Hayes will be played by Olivia Rose Keegan, Navia Robinson, and Oscar Morgan (left to right)

 

And Carrie Kelley is in the comics a sidekick of Batman and is wearing big, colored glasses…I guess as a disguise…but well, it’s certainly not a mask for me:

More details on these characters:

Honestly, I didn’t know any of these actors until now, but looking forward to seeing what they can bring to the screen!

There are also rumors that Stephanie Brown will be in the show as well….and she is the heroine “Spoiler” in the comics (mostly)!

It would be SO great if she would be in the show! I especially love the full-face version of her mask…. but I think the chances they would use such a mask are verrrrry slim.

But the ninja-style mask is very interesting as well for me.

And the show has a LOT of potential for even more masked women in it! I mean perhaps even Batgirl could be in it!

But as they are making that Batgirl movie, I doubt that she also will appear in this TV show 🙁

I am looking forward to reading and seeing much more about this show as the potential is really BIG!

And my hope is that this show will get a green light for a season order and then season 4 of Batwoman will also be aired in the fall later in the year! That would be perfect!

In the worst case, this show wouldn’t get a season order and Batwoman would be canceled…. that would be quite a disaster for me.

Well, hope for more news soon!

 

A ninja heroine falls in love with a bad guy [Blog exclusive]

I made some posts about the Supah Ninjas TV show already, but I missed two interesting episodes with interesting scenes!

I made a highlight cut out of 2 episodes for you folks as the guy re-appears later on in the season.

And here is the video:

Some good and some bad aspects here for me.

I like the ninja look that really disguises her perfectly. The early fight scene with him is really good! She unmasks him by hitting him and he compliments her on her eyes.

That she then decides to drop that mask in favor of that eye mask that covers perhaps 5% of her head…… is really annoying for me in two ways.

Not only does she give up the good disguise of her normal mask, she seemingly wants to show much more of her face to him incl. her blonde hair.

She tries much too hard to make more of an impression on him after he already made her a compliment for her eyes earlier on. He was already interested…..

So, she decides to basically unmask herself, even the “mask” is supposed to work as a disguise in the show. A classic trope with these tiny masks.

I really enjoy how they fight each other, I love the tension between them, it’s basically like Catwoman battling with Batman, only that here the man is the bad guy. (Ok, Catwoman is actually only “half-bad”).

The scene where he wants her to take off the mask but she refuses is very sexy for me, as I love such “mask-talk” scenes. Very sexy how he reaches for her mask and is about to kiss her at the same time. Sadly it’s only a dream…. with a funny ending 😆

What I really hate is that he then finds out who she is without unmasking her! That gives me major Batwoman TV show-flashes in a way…..

All that sexy build-up and then he just knows…. LAME!

How great would have been if they had continued to fight and he would have unmasked her as she struggled to keep her mask on.

And then with the ninja two-part mask…imagine him slowly yanking her mask down, pulling the headpiece off to fully reveal the woman underneath….

But ok, all in all, there is a lot of good aspects here for me.

The scenes can be found in episodes 2 and 9 of season 2 of Supah Ninjas.

Masked female …..knights and warriors?!

Thanks to the nice guy who recommended me this movie (and others)!

Well, ok, in one case she is dressed as a knight for a big part of the movie.

The other woman isn’t exactly a knight, more like a warrior, but certainly a masked warrior!

This one is pretty different from the scenes that I normally post, but perhaps you like it…

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

Well, the helmet of the warrior isn’t exactly very stylish or sexy for my taste, but it is certainly a great disguise. Sadly most of the guys have way cooler helmets than she has.

But the whole premise of having such a female masked knight is pretty cool, basically the opposite of the sleeky, masked cat burglar.

Of course, I would have preferred her to be unmasked by someone else, but no luck.

The female warrior is also a nice addition to the movie as she is seen in two full-face masks!

After the reveal of the knight, she sadly doesn’t wear her helmet that much and runs and rides along “just” in the armor.

If you like to see men and women fight in medieval armour, this is certainly a highlight movie for you!

And judging that there it has just around 500 votes on IMDB it seems like a pretty rare movie.

Batgirl gassed by a villain and Batgirl gets into… close contact…. with Batman!

I have seen this one as it came out in …. mid-2016?! Damn, nearly 6 years ago already.

Somehow I didn’t make a post back then as it seemed very difficult for me as this movie has so many minutes of a certain masked heroine!

But, as with the Catwoman: Hunted movie I will focus on 2 selected scenes.

I certainly recommend you to watch the whole movie.

 

Preview, scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

Well, Batgirl was pretty lucky here! She managed to stay conscious long enough to lock herself “away”.

Otherwise, this guy could have done quite a lot to her….

However, I really like this peril scene as he uses that odd knockout gas that takes some time to work.

It’s also odd that he sprays that stuff in his own direction also, as his face is right next to hers… but it has not the slightest effect on him, even he was (less) exposed to it, but ok, no big aspect.

The way he presses himself onto her is quite…..sexual….I was surprised that they would have that scene in it.

Batgirl was also lucky that he didn’t go immediately for her mask as she was pretty helpless (picture 3).

But he missed the chance to unmask her…

 

And I got one more scene for you!

Preview, scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

Well, luckily I didn’t know about that scene before I watched this movie!

I was really surprised BIG time by this scene…I mean Batgirl having sex with Batman???!

I mean ok, the whole movie is rather for adults than for kids…but holy Batsex, I didn’t think I would ever see that!

Even they only show the …foreplay, but it’s crystal clear what happens/will happen.

Can only guess if Barbara (as Batgirl unmasked herself) has then sex with Batman or Bruce…

But well, I can’t blame them 😉

 

Two things were quite odd about this scene. First, it’s another example of how careless many masked heroes and heroines get when they are on rooftops.

She unmasks herself on that rooftop! Ok, perhaps there is no tall building nearby, but that is very risky! What if someone sees that through a binocular and sees how Batgirl yanks off her mask (and other things? Very dangerous for her secret identity! And why does she unmask herself in the first place? She could have sex with Batman or Bruce with her mask on.

Also, her mask/cowl seems to be connected to her cape as it comes off (way too easily) as she yanks her cape away. Some more frames of her cowl leaving her face would have been great!

It looks quite sloppy this way from the animators.

However, it’s a pretty great scene and was surely a big surprise as I watched that movie back then.

I will re-watch the movie in the next weeks.

Here is the IMDB link to the movie:

Black Scorpion TV show – The best scenes from the best episodes – [Episode 17]

Ok, it is time for one last post about the legendary Black Scorpion TV show!

The show is in my Hall of Fame and if you are into masked women, this TV show is an absolute MUST have!

My 3 favorite episodes are already covered here by now.

This is is a little cheat, as the episode is actually not one of my favorites.

But…..it has a really good scene in it….so… I think it deserves a post.

Some pictures:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

Never been a big fan of the Gangster Prankster, who is basically a cheap Joker.

He is neither funny or really threatening and his henchmen are just annoying.

But his giggling sidekick has a great idea here! So often Black Scorpion gets knocked out and the villains are just walking away from her.

Only very few were interested in unmasking her so, I love how his sidekick says “Take off her mask….”!

That’s a great idea! Many more villains should have that 😉

I love the thrill as his hand is reaching for her mask, even it is only a very quick scene, I love such attempted unmaskings!

Luckily for her Argyle interrupts him before he reaches her mask, even it was just holding him back for some seconds.

But before Prankster could reach for her mask again good old Steve appears!

Black Scorpion awakes just in time to kick his ass for the 244th time.

Oh Steve, you will never learn….or maybe you just like to get your ass kicked by her… 😉

 

 

P.S.:

What I would give for a Blu-ray release of this show or an HD TV airing!

Catwoman and Batwoman in action! [Blog exclusive]

I saw the trailer for this one last year and was looking forward to it quite a lot!

Yeah, it’s “just” an animated movie, not a live-action movie and it also has anime style, which I don’t like that much.

BUT…. Catwoman and Batwoman are the main stars of this one! And there are no other heroes in it that they have to share the screentime with. 🙂

If I would make videos with all the Catwoman and Batwoman scenes I would basically have to show the whole movie….which would be a problem.

So, I am focusing on 2 scenes that I wanna show here.

Preview, scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ecvf0PreLs0-ApDcXbmo1OK5-tOmlY0X/view?usp=sharing

(I tried everything to get it on Youtube…but even a shorter version with under 2 minutes was blocked right away)

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

Well…..I LOVE that scene! We have a very seductive Catwoman and Batwoman (with surprisingly BIG twins).

And it’s very sexy how Catwoman seduces Batwoman in order to steal something from her (as we see later on). Batwoman totally falls for it… can’t blame her. 😉

I also love how Catwoman is playing with her wig before she finally completely unmasks her and then is about to kiss her.

All in all a very erotic scene in my opinion! Except for Kate’s helmet haircut after the unmasking.

Don’t know exactly why Selina knows who Batwoman is, perhaps the Bat told her at one of their special “meetings” 😉

I got one more for you.

In this one, you can see Catwoman in her catsuit and mask.

Preview, scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ezL11EgXr6P6BjYSd-6dZ4S4e0ZwgJMx/view?usp=sharing

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

I like that Catwoman has a really strong opponent here so we get some peril elements.

Also, I like that her goggles get damaged, which is actually affected her sight big time. Seems like therefore she decided to pull off the whole mask, even it is unclear if these goggles are actually attached to the cowl or not as that varies in the comics.

So, we do have a forced self-unmasking here, even it isn’t shown sadly 🙁 .

What annoys me a little, just like in the Catwoman comics in the last years is that Catwoman doesn’t really have a secret identity.

I mean here is a scene where she addresses a big crowd after some heist and she even calls herself Selina Kyle.

Her mask is then more a functional (protective) tool than to hide her secret identity.

I don’t care how comic-accurate that is or not, I don’t like it. Catwoman should keep her identity a secret.

But ok, still I really enjoy seeing her in full costume and mask… like in this movie. In every scene, I am hoping that someone would go for that mask 😉

All in all a movie I can really recommend and that will find that place into my collection as soon as the Blu-ray is available here.

There aren’t many movies that have so much screen time with masked women in them!

A masked villainess and her special gun

This one had a long road until it got here. Two or three guys recommended me this one and it’s finally time to have a post with scenes from this movie.

Thanks, guys!

For some reason I never heard of this movie, even it has a brilliant cast.

Yeah, it’s a movie for kids and teenagers in the first place, but still, it’s odd I never heard about it back then as it was released in the cinema or on DVD/Blu-ray.

So, what do we have here? A masked villainess in action!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

I made a special cut for you folks.

I wanted that her face is only revealed with the final unmasking and cut some scenes out where she is seen in her suit but without the mask.

I think her costume is ok, even it’s not really sexy. Her mask is a great disguise and the voice changer is a nice add-on.

Ok, I haven’t seen the whole movie, only skipped through to the ending, but I checked if the villainess would have more appearances early on and she has only tiny scenes with that evil sidekick where she is only shown from behind/the side. And there are no interactions with anyone else before she appears in that scene.

And she is shown as herself in a dress before she transforms into the villainess. So, the helmet/mask is more for protection than for having a secret identity….as it seems.

I like the fact that she doesn’t unmask herself as it happens so often. Really cool that he smashes her mask in pieces and knocks her out with that punch.

Quite a rare unmasking…destroying the mask of the masked woman.

And finding Mary Elizabeth Winstead under that mask is certainly a nice surprise!

 

I prepared a bonus video for you guys to show how she transforms into the villainess and how she walks around in that costume without the mask.

Bonus video:

Really fantastic cast with Bruce Campbell, Kurt Russell, Lynda Carter, and more!

The Batgirl costume….revealed! [Batgirl movie, HBO Max, 2022]

OK, this news can’t wait, so I wanna post it today!

From Batwoman now to Batgirl, to be more precise to the Batgirl movie that will come out later this year!

I posted about the casting of Leslie Grace (point 3) and now the costume got revealed!

Here it is:

(click to enlarge to full size)

Ok, my biggest fear is gone now. They are using a cowl and not an eye mask.

The cowl looks really good but doesn’t seem to have a chin strap unless it’s hidden in the shadows.

So basically she is wearing a helmet 😉

The long red wig(?) looks also really good and her face looks great under the cowl (and without a cowl as well).

Now on to the costume. Ok, I do like leather, but I would have preferred a black costume over this.

Overall I do like the costume. After Catwoman in “The Batman” and the costume disaster in the “Birds of Prey” movie, this is certainly a better one.

I hope Leslie can play the role well and that the script will be good.

And the hardcore comic fans will notice that this costume is very accurate to the one in the comics.

Not a plus point for me as I would have wished they would have chosen the costume from the Arkham video games.

Looking forward to more news and hopefully some first teaser trailer in the next months!

Batwoman unmasked by the Riddler! [UPGRADE] + Batwoman news

In the very, very, very early days of this blog back in 2013 I made this post:

(…Don’t watch the video in that post yet!…)

https://maskripper.org/batwoman-unmasked-by-the-riddler

Well, luckily I have improved in some ways over all these years as there is nearly no text to it.

This absolutely great unmasking deserves an UPGRADE! A BIG one!

I wanna present the video in a longer version and in an HD version today.

Plus I wanna give it a big upgrade on the text part also.

So, let’s start with a preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

First of all, this is an early Batwoman version (Katrina Moldoff) before Kate Kane and Ryan Wilder appeared way later on.

I think her costume is overall ok, but I’m not a fan of that mask that is basically just a big version of an eye mask and doesn’t hide much.

But well, that was basically everything negative I have to say about that scene 😉

She fights really well and brings down the Riddler, but then she gets careless and lets her guard down.

I love how he uses this situation to his advantage and just goes for her mask, unlike so many other villains.

He knows how important her secret identity is to her, and he has seen the reporters, so he knows how devastating the effect of the unmasking would be.

The ripping sound as the mask gets yanked away from her face is awesome, even not 100% logical as it’s hard to say where that sound actually is coming from as it sounds as the fabric gets ripped. And her mask isn’t really attached to anything….as it seems.

But ok, not important as the sound is soo great 😉

Her reaction to it is great and she is really surprised and terrified by his move! Maybe that explains why she moves her head around and thereby is presenting her unmasked face to the reporters which makes the unmasking so much worse for her.

Even it would have been bad enough if “only” he would know, as he could use that knowledge against her.

He really enjoys the whole unmasking and how he defeated her completely with it. I wish many more villains would think like him! (#hallo TV show/movie writers)

And all that was completely improvised as he just saw her for the first time some minutes ago.

Also, a nice aspect as Batman comments the unmasking as a “dirty trick” from him.

The facts that the reporter immediately recognize her famous face and the newspaper with “Katrina exposed!” are additional bonuses!

So much to love about this scene!

Here is the IMDB link to that episode:

+ Some news on the Batwoman TV show:

Well, after a break of (nearly) 2 months the show is finally returning with new episodes the next Wednesday (9 PM on the CW), January 12.

It feels much longer to me and I am thrilled that there will be finally new episodes!

There will be 6 more episodes in this second half of season 3 (episodes 8-13).

Still, there has been no news about a possible season 4, but I bet there will be news on that VERY soon.

In the meantime the news arrived that the CW is actually up for sale:

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/the-cw-for-sale-warnermedia-viacomcbs-1235070616/

Very hard to say what that would mean to Batwoman, the Arrowverse, and all the other shows on the CW.

So, I don’t know if a new owner would be good or bad news. First, that sale actually has to happen…

P.S.:

I switched most of the videos that were “unlisted” lately back to the “public” on Youtube since the Maskripper Youtube channel isn’t in danger anymore for now.
