Fan made Batwoman promo posters by riyadgraphisme

[2nd post for today]

Also on this special, I wanna present two unoffical Batwoman promo posters for season 2:

(click to enlarge)

Both very cool posters in my opinion!

The right one: Good idea to have Ryan Wilder AND Batwoman on it even they are the same person.

The poster shows all the character that should play a bigger role in season 2, at least from today’s point of view.

Don’t know how big Julia’s role will be, but perhaps she should be on it as well as she was promoted to a regular cast member.

Tough choice but I slightly prefer the left one I guess.

Here is the Instagram channel of the artist, feel welcome to check his other work there and to follow him on Instagram:

Season 2 of Batwoman starts at 8PM on the CW today!

Batwoman: Beyond ….Comics special on a SPECIAL day! [Masks off #41]

[1st post for today]

To celebrate this SPECIAL day….the day where the Batwoman TV shows starts into its second season (8PM at the CW)…I have a “Batwoman Beyond comics special” for you!

It’s the “Batwoman BEYOND” version from the “Batman Beyond” run.

In that run a version of Batwoman appeared in issues 37 to 42.

For some reason I forgot to post about these comics back then, time to finally do that now!

In this gallery you find the highlights from my perspective with some peril moments and all the (un)masking action!

These pages are from issues 38 to 42. You will find more of course in the comics as I couldn’t put them all in a gallery 😉

You should check out all these comics!

[Read the pages before you go on!]

I really like that she actually had a secret identity in these comics for a while as not even the reader knew who was under that mask.

The advantage of such a full face mask is ….obviously….that the whole face is covered, so it provides a perfect disguise.

I do love such a mystery! It also provides some opportunities to show scenes where the mask gets damaged or ripped.

Sadly they don’t much use of that here. I mean if someone delivers hard punches to her face or threws her around the mask should get damaged at some point. But well, I don’t know what high-tech material they use in these Batman Beyond masks. So, her costume does only really damaged once through that explosion.

My favorite is the scene where a hand of the villain gets really close to her face as she is lying on the ground. But sadly, it seems like he didn’t want to unmask her as he immediately starts to choke her instead of yanking her mask off. That moron 😉

The self unmaskings are well done even I would have prefered that someone else had unmasked her at one point or at least try to do that.

But in the end these comics with this Batwoman Beyond version are my favorites from the last 5 years!

What do you think of these pages/comics?

Batwoman news: Interviews + a new big villain

Season 2 of Batwoman is only DAYS away as it starts THIS SUNDAY, January 17 at the CW at 8pm.

After no fresh episodes since May I’m more than hyped! 🙂

A lot of articles and news surfaced the last days and on this post I wanna collect all the new info prior to episode 1.

Safiyah is one of the big villains in season 2, we know that for quite a while now. She was already mentioned a few times in season 1 and has some connections to Alice and Kate(?).

Shivaani Ghai was casted for that role.

Now we get some first look images + an interesting text on EW:

Meet Batwoman season 2 big bad Safiyah in new first look

Now we got news that infamous villain Black Mask also joins the villains of season 2 on the show!

No info on the actor who will play him are out yet….but damn, that’s great news! I always liked his role in the comics and his appearance was one of the plus points of the Birds of Prey movie.

More on that on the EW as well:

Batwoman boss confirms Black Mask is season 2’s other big bad

I will update this post if new info and material surfaces before episode 1 gets aired.

The masked villainess, a hero and the “witch” [+2 extra videos]

This one was a lucky find I stumbled upon by pure luck.

I saw this poster, and of course I HAD to watch the movie 😉

(click to enlarge)

As you can see the poster is strangely cut at both sides, but well, the most interesting part is there to see.

Quite interesting is that the hero is in the background while the masked woman is in fact the “right hand” of the movie’s villain.

But I guess they thought it would help to put an attractive, mysterious woman right in the middle of the movie poster 😉

Let’s move on to the movie, here are some pictures as a preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

I really like the idea of having such a masked villainess in the movie! It is a rare thing in a movie even today, but especially hard to find such a character in a movie from 1959!

Her movie role is quite odd, naturally to the age of the movie and the way women were portrayed…..she doesn’t actively fight, but rather tortures and kills people from the distance or by backstabbing them (literally). She fights with an epee for about smashing 5 seconds, but we will come to that later on.

Now to the video above: The ending is bitter sweet for me. It’s great that he rips her mask off in such manner. Sadly…we can’t see it as the movie shows it from that perspective. And she runs away without allowing us to see her unmasked face. What a wasted opportunity!

And it’s also sad that she actually never puts on her mask again througout the movie. 🙁

She always is wearing that outfit, where she covers her hair completely. Ok, that could be seen as some sort of disguise, but well, doesn’t really work for me 😆

The movie had also a german audio track which I used as I watched the movie. And as you can possibly tell when you know german TV it was a german TV airing (MDR is the channel).

Interestingly the german dialogue is quite different. As the movie is italian, both english and german audios are dubs from the original language.

In german the villain approaches her and says “….say that you laugh at me under your MASK….” in translation.

Here is the scene for those of you who can understand it:

So, you may wondering what happens to her at the end of the movie?

Well, here is her ending:

[Watch the video first before you continue!]

Spoiler title
After another sneaky murder she meets her final fate as some random soldier kills her with a banner pole!?!

Quite an odd way to finish her off. Especially as it should have been the hero’s job to do that and get his revenge on her after all the things she had done to him, his father and friends.

Interestingly we finally see her hair, she is finally fully “unmasked” in these seconds. A continuation error as we never see that cloth coming off as she still was standing.

Fittingly she has red hair….which was/is a popular hair color for showing evil/crazy women 😉

 

And here is a promo poster for the movie where she actually shows her hair (which she never does like that):

What do you think of her and her scenes?

The masked woman from Hong Kong

This one was recommended to me, so THANKS to the guy who did it!

My knowledge of asian movies is rather limited as they often don’t make it to europe and they never get subtitled or dubbed.

I only skipped through this one as it doesn’t make much sense to me to fully watch a movie where you don’t understand the language (unless the language isn’t….necessary 😉 ).

I found two scenes where the masked woman appears, although it seems really odd that she is only in these scenes.

But if there are other scenes with her, they can only be some seconds long.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, I don’t have any clue about what is really going on there, who she is and why she is masked in the first place….due to the language barrier.

However her masks assortment is pretty unique.

I’m not the biggest fan of eye masks, especially when they are out of plastic. But this masks-combo incl. the nylon half mask does conceal her face just enough to make it interesting.

Her costume is quite sexy altogether. 🙂

And the 2 stage self unmasking is done quite well.

Would be nice to understand the language to get the background story. That would certainly improve these scenes with the masked woman.

Wanna know from which movie this is?

An AWESOME Batwoman promo poster! + The snyopsis of episode 1 of season 2

One last post for 2020.

Yesterday I felt like a child on christmas as a late christmas gift appeared on the CW social media accounts. 🙂

It was THIS season 2 promo poster:

(click to enlarge)


Oh…..my …..GOD!!!!

Love how her cowl is presented by her, while her face stays in the shadows 🙂

My mouth was wide open as I found the twitter post with this one.

As soon as I find a real big version of this one I will order a poster with this asap.

*EDIT*

Here is the synopsis for episode 1 of season 2:

Spoiler title
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN – Kate’s friends and family hold on to hope that Kate may still be found, a homeless 25-year-old named Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) stumbles upon Kate’s Batsuit.  Focused on no longer being a victim, Ryan takes the suit to use as armor and goes rogue in the streets of Gotham, taking out various members of a new gang called the False Face Society.  Meanwhile, both Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson) launch searches for Kate, Mary Hamilton (Nicole Kang) grapples with losing yet another family member, Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy) struggles with things left unsaid to her first love, and Alice (Rachel Skarsten) is furious that someone got to Kate before she could exact her revenge.  At the same time, “Bruce Wayne” (guest star Warren Christie) returns under the pretense of searching for Kate, but the truth is he wants his suit back and it becomes the clash of imposters as “Batwoman” and “Bruce” square off in the action-packed season premiere. Holly Dale directed the episode written by Caroline Dries (#201).  Original airdate 1/17/2021.  Every episode of BATWOMAN will be available to stream on The CW App and CWTV.com the day after broadcast for free and without a subscription, log-in or authentication required. 

Just 17 more days to the start of season 2!

The masked female revolutionist….gets….UNMASKED!

Last week I posted these scenes in which a masked female revolutionist unmasks herself…twice as she is wearing two masks(!).

In the meantime I watched the remaining episodes of the season and…..well…..the BEST scene was shown in the last episode of the season!

As the title of this post suggests she gets UNMASKED, this time by an evil henchman!

Check out some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

That’s how you do an unmasking! This short scene is my “unmasking highlight 2020” when it comes to TV shows and movies.

Ok, her leather mask does only cover on half of her face…but it covers more then most of the eye masks that heroines often are wearing.

And many things are done really good in this one:

She isn’t tied up, she can fight back. But he pushes her against the wall, using the oportunity immediately to to grab onto her mask. Finally a bad guy who actually wants to unmask the heroine….and he does it at the first chance he gets. For a moment she is stunned and he swiftly pulls hard on her mask. One of the two leather straps …..which holds her mask in place…. rips and he yanks the mask away from her, tossing it to the ground. Thereby he doesn’t only unmask her but even damaging her mask so she can’t put it on again. She later flees from the fight with others….still unmasked.

Yeah, the bog scar under the mask isn’t that attractive…but as I told in the post last week….she got it as bad guys punished her.

Also I like her reaction to it. She is furious as the mask comes off and all her anger is showing immediately.

Of course this scene is even more intense if you have watched the whole TV show before….

*EDIT* I forgot to mention this: Yeah, her mask doesn’t give her a secret identity, everyone knows who she is, it is like I said last week, a mask that hides the scar (like in Phantom of the Opera), but that doesn’t really change my liking about the unmasking.

I really love this scene as it shows something very rare.

I wish that season 2 of the Batwoman TV show would include a scene such as this one! Or an unmasking attempt during a fight….that would be awesome!

As a little bonus, here is the unmasking scene in the short version:

I recommend that you download it and play the file in endless repeat mode 😉

And here is the episode:

“Blue Aegis” by UHL is out!

Ultraheroix (I presented Nightfox: Gravestone from them last year) and SHL has teamed up to form UHL and their first collaborative project is “Blue Aegis”!

And you shouldn’t miss this one 😉

 

Story synopsis:

King Skull is about to acquire dangerous information from a corrupt detective when Blue Aegis intervenes. King Skull, his henchmen, the detective and a hunter are all about to make sure Blue Aegis doesn’t get in the way again.

Check out these preview images for starters:

(click on the image to enlarge it to full size)

And here is the trailer:

(click on the arrows to enlarge to FULL size)

I enjoyed this video a LOT!

The actress does a good job as the heroine and I just love her costume!

The bodysuit, the boots and the sexy pantyhose are a stunning combo and she certainly looks rather…awesome in it! 🙂

Her mask is solid as it is a Huntress type rubber mask, and I like that it conceals a bit more than the mostly used eye masks in most fetish videos with masked heroines.

As you already can see in the trailer, the villain gets curious to have a look under her mask, and that is always a plus point! In many TV shows and movies the masks of the heroines gets mostly ignored like in the Black Scorpion TV show where she gets knocked out in nearly every episode, and the villain than mostly quickly flees without caring to unmask the heroine.

Also it’s always very enjoyable for me to have a sexy villainess in a video like in this case. Ok, her mask is nothing for my taste, but I know many of you like these eye masks!

With her claws and her sexy costume she is a great addition for this video! And black leather boots and pantyhose are always welcome as well 😉

Also the cat and mouse game between the villainess and the heroine in this one is done very well.

All in all this is a very enjoyable, high quality video and I’m looking forward to which videos this new collaboration will bring!

Batwoman: New promo poster and a detailed synopsis for season 2!

Right in time for Christmas interesting new material have just surfaced!

Here is the new promo poster:

(click to enlarge)

Really like that one!

As soon I got a really big sized version, I will order a poster and hang it up next to the season 1 poster I had ordered last year.

But that’s not it…here is the detailed synopsis for season 2:

In season two of BATWOMAN, when Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) first discovers Kate Kane’s Batsuit, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. A sassy, smart lesbian with a difficult past, Ryan sees the suit as her chance to finally be powerful and no longer a victim as she survives in the tough streets of the city.

While Ryan goes rogue in the shadows, Gotham grapples with their missing hero, believing Batwoman has fled the city after a public stand-off with Commander Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and the Crows. But Kate Kane’s disappearance hits hardest at home where Jacob, Sophie (Meagan Tandy), Luke (Camrus Johnson), Mary (Nicole Kang) and even Alice (Rachel Skarsten) each struggle with the devastating news in their own way. Meanwhile, the False Face Society tightens its grip on Gotham, distributing a perilous new drug known as Snakebite, “Bruce Wayne” (Warren Christie) finds his way home to wreak havoc, Safiyah (Shivaani Ghai) surfaces with plans for revenge, and a new set of villains descends on the city.

It’s not long before Ryan realizes how much the symbol on the suit means to Gotham, launching her on a personal journey that takes her from fledgling substitute to confident caped crusader, from living in her van with her plant to chasing villains in the Batmobile. Ryan Wilder becomes a very different Batwoman than Kate Kane – her own Batwoman – but with the same understanding of what it means to be a hero.

Starring Javicia Leslie, Dougray Scott, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, and Camrus Johnson.

Interesting new details in this juicier synospsis!

Kate missing, Alice still on the loose, False Face Society, false Bruce Wayne and Safiyah appearing in Gotham.

Sounds like quite a LOT happening in good old Gotham… 😉

Bring it on, I’m very excited for the new season!

7 months have past until the end of season 1, finally in 4 weeks the waiting comes to an end!

The masked female revolutionist

I watched this new french Netflix TV show and stumpled upon a masked female revolutionist. 🙂

And actually in one scene, she even wears two masks!

But let’s start with some pictures…

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

I guess you have realised that this is a german dubbed version.

I watch most of the TV shows in original english audio. But as I said this show is french, so I watched the german dubbed version as it wouldn’t make sense for me to watch the english dub of a french TV show 😉

However the really interesting parts of this video can be understand without any language.

For dramatic purposes I re-arranged the scenes as the scene in the prison is set AFTER the one in the cave in the TV show. This way you could see her with her two masks first and then have the “full” unmasking for the end.

Quite an extraordinary “mask setting”. One mask to disguise her as a plague doctor and one to cover up the scars caused by a villain who carved them into her face when she was younger.

Her half mask which basically covers only one half of her face reminds me on the phantom of the opera who was wearing a mask like that for similar resasons.

This is set some year before 1800 so there are only few material available for a mask. I really like her leather mask. Would be a great mask for a vigilante in the “full version”.

Batwoman: Promo pictures for episode 1 of season 2

The Batwoman Promo machine is coming to speed after we finally got the trailer last week!

Now Entertainment Weekly published 9 pictures today.

Here you can see all 9 of them in one place:

Quite a lot of question can be asked about these pictures:

Will be very interesting to see how Elliot disguised as Bruce Wayne will act in the early episodes.

What is his goal? How will they find out that it isn’t Bruce Wayne after all?

What does he have in picture number 4 in his hands. I guess a weapon….but what kind?

And Kate Kane disappears and Ryan Wilder surfaces…..will be interesting to see how all of the characters will handle that.

Where does the new car is coming from? The red colored section and the bat symbol aren’t on it at that point.

Who is poiting that gun at Alice? And why?

Oh, the first episode will have to answer a LOT of questions!

Season start on January 17, just one month to go!

Right now I do have plenty of material to post for my other blog Frogwoman, but very little for this one.

– Of course this blog is already pretty big with a lot of content, and I do know quite a lot of movies, tv-series and so on…but there is always a chance that I don’t know it or forgot about it (then it wasn’t a really good scene 😉 )

What do you get?
