Batwoman TRAILER, Sneak Peak and MUCH more!

I guess that will be the longest post I ever made here on Maskripper, but…

…well, these are really exciting days….a lot of BIG news on the Batwoman TV show!

 

When will the show start?

1) It will run on Sundays at 8 PM on the CW, right before Supergirl (9 PM)

2) It will start sometime in Fall, the exact date will be announced in the future

The Trailer is here:

A “Sneak Peak” is there too:

And a general, short trailer for all the Arrowverse shows…with some seconds of Batwoman as well:

And now something to read as well…the Official Storyline:

BATWOMAN — Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob’s first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety. After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy). Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate –– the daughter he still has –– at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes –– a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Nicole Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Rachel Skarsten), who’s always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope. Based on the characters from DC, BATWOMAN is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Caroline Dries (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Smallville”), Geoff Johns (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Titans”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”). David Nutter (“Game of Thrones,” “The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Marcos Siega (“The Vampire Diaries,” “You”) executive produced the pilot.

My opinion on the trailer:

I was rather surprised we get a trailer that long at this time! 🙂

And that is “only” material from the pilot episode, which was the only one that was filmed so far.

I liked the rather dark tone of it, both in optics AND atmosphere. Very fitting, like Batman…Batwoman is a creature of the night with a rather troubled past.

We get introduced to the (so far) important characters, get a feeling for the story of the pilot and some good action scenes as well.

There is a lot of ….fuzz…over Kate’s two…well….”feminisitc(?)” lines, but I think they just wanna make a statement in the trailer. I don’t think she will drop such lines on a regular base in the Show later this year. I don’t have a problem with it, as long as it doesn’t get …too much.

And seeing this trailer…..it is something really….HUGE for me. As you may know by now, I really have a thing for masked women. 😉

She wears a great masks that really hides her identity, there are so MANY examples in other shows were the women have rather small masks that doesn’t hide enough to provide a good “secret identity cover” for the woman underneath the mask.

And to have a show with such a masked heroine in the LEAD role…..it is a dream coming true.

My biggest questions about the show so far:

1) When will the show start exactly? So that I can configure the timer on the right side 😉

2) Which characters will we get to see in that season? Villains/Villainesses? What other heroes/heroines? Gotham has A LOT to offer 🙂

3) Is Alice the main villainess?

4) Who will figure out who is under Batwoman’s mask? And When?

In the trailer…”only” Luke Fox seems to be “in the know”, as he is responsible for her suit and gadgets. In the comics her father knows it from the start (as he train her), but it’s not sure the TV show will do it like the comics.

5) How many unmaskings will be shown? And what types of unmaskings? (Self, forced, unconscious, bound, fight …-unmaskings?)

6) Her masks (in the trailer we saw 2 versions): From what material are they made of? What are the exact differences between the both types we saw so far?

7) What is the main storyline? (after the pilot)

8) How much screentime will Batwoman actually get in the episodes?

Season 1 of BATWOMAN is………..ORDERED!!!

As I woke up one hour ago, checking a certain site as every morning…my pulse was accelerated through the roof.
😀 Right now, I am so HAPPY, sooooo HAPPY. 😀
So far, it seemed most likely that they would order season 1 after the pilot was filmed in march…but hey, I’m very superstitious when it comes to possible great news.
But now, all doubts are gone, as it is official:

Batwoman – Season 1 …is officially ordered!

A short teaser surfaced to confirm it:

We will get a TV SERIES with a MASKED HEROINE in the MAIN role!!!

And easy to say after only 2 TV series so far (Queen of Swords and Black Scorpion) this is clearly the first one with a “real” budget so far.

And these series are both around 20 years old. It was about damn time!

(And hopefully it will be the first one(!) who will get …a second season)


And the chances for more masked women (villainesses and heroines) are ….very high/near certain!!!
Did some say Batgirl, Catwoman, Huntress? 😉

Some images, mostly from the Elseworlds crossover event from december:

More details like:

– how many episodes?

– when does the series start exactly?

–  storyline?

…will be released next week (around May 16) as the CW presents their shows for the next tv season (fall)!

Later this day I will celebrate this news with expensive burgers and something special to drink. 😉

May 8th, 2019 ….. a day to remember.

(((or May 7th, if you take U.S. time)))

What do you think about this news?

Let us know in the comments below!

To celebrate this very special news…. I will give away FREE months for the VIP club of Maskripper!

The task is very easy, you have to guess….how many DVDs and Blurays I do have in my movie/TV-series collection?

(the one/ones closest to the right result win – every number can only be taken ONCE)

I little hint: More than 5 😉

…Contest closed!

XS’s secret identity is exposed to some villains! [The Flash]

Well, the last episode from the Flash had some interesting dialogues about secret identities and an unmasking as well.

Even if I hope, I don’t think it will be of impact for further episodes….but let’s see if that gets a real big problem.

Preview:

(cllick to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, what a clumsy/moronic Sherloque Wells! He does try to convince Nora/XS how much her parents care about her….but by saying that he actually exposes the fact that she is his daughter.

And the “weather witch” connects the dots and realises that Nora is XS, who gives up the masquerade and unmasks herself in front of a villainess!

XS is exposed!

Well, these three villains aren’t big villains like Cicada…but I wonder if they use that knowledge later on against her (and her family)?

This is the episode this clip was taken from:

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.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

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?

Batman and Robin VS the Joker, Pinguin and Catwoman [Parody / Madness]

Well, with that headline you are thinking about the Batman TV show from the 60’s? Well, that’s wrong. This movie from the Philippines is some sort of much …..weirder, much …..insaner parody of the Adam West Batman TV show (which was a parody itself…more or less 😉 )

For today I wanna show you a short video which will…….surprise you with the strangest fight between Batman and Catwoman!

I never saw the whole movie, because it’s not available in any language I understand, but more important: It is batshit crazy! If you can watch the whole movie….well, then you are officially insane 😆

For you folks I edited the “best” part of it, in which the Joker, Pinguin and Catwoman try to escape after a heist, but Batman and Robin can’t let that happen!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Sorry for the picture quality….but that is actually the best one available. Fits somehow to the movie…. 😉

And here is the video:

Well, that was rather…….ODD!

Catwoman throwing cats at him….both trying to strangle each other….and then the weirdest part!

Looks like Batman could easily unmask Catwoman from behind….or put handcuffs on her.

But what does he do instead? He bites her. He BITES her…and makes some animal noises. Hmhm…… WTF?!

By skipping through the movie I can (99%) assure you that he isn’t a vampire…I guess there is just no sane explanation for it 😉

Catwoman’s costume is kind of strange as well, doesn’t look like a cat, but not unsexy with these legs in pantyhose (even the picture quality is really bad).

And she has a much bigger mask than the original Catwoman from the US TV show.

A shame she isn’t unmasked in this scene.

Here is the IMDB-link to that insane movie:

Masked heroines! – [Fan art by BluLive – II ]

One year after my last post about his art it’s time to present my favorite artworks from BluLIve from the last 12 months.

He presents a lot of celebrities under cowls and full face masks as well. And he also shares my interest in masks with battle damage as well. 🙂

Here are my selected favorites from the last 12 months:

(click on the images to enlarge them to the full size)

The first picture shows pretty much how a real mask/cowl for a heroine should look like in my opinion. And if you combine….this mask with that costume….

(click to enlarge)

….that would be the perfect combination for me. It is really difficult to make a costume that I would like better than that one.

Here is the link to his Deviant Art page, check it out to see all his work:

A new masked villainess battles team Flash! [Flash]

In the latest Flash episode we got a new villainess! ….[SPOILERS ahead]

A masked female version of this seasons arch-villain Cicada!

So, you don’t wanna miss her first appearance and the fight VS team Flash!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, at first her male/unisex uniform doesn’t even give away that there is a woman under that mask….but here eyes did immediately! So, when she enters the scene it gets….exciting!

Well, team Flash lost big against her, I wonder how they gonna stop her… Of course it would have been more fun if they unmasked her…or tried to unmask her. But she was way too good for them this time. But I like her self unmasking! 🙂

The hood and the mask make a very effective disguise….that’s how a secret identity is well protected.

What do you guys think of that scene?

Batwoman news (TV show?)- #2

Ok, I didn’t post anything about the (possible) Batwoman TV-show for the last 2 months…time to change that!

The filming of the pilot episode has begun yesterday (March 4th) and that means that some casting decisions were made in the last weeks as well.

Here are the new members of the Batwoman pilot:

(click on the image to enlarge it to full-scale)

As the first three are mostly enemies of Batwoman….this will be a lot of fun! All 3 of them are not happy with Batwoman showing up in Gotham, so I am looking forward how they will “deal” with her. Hopefully there will be some interest in UNMASKING the new vigilante in town. And for all three of them…it would be a BIG surprise to see who is under that mask 😉

The last 3 in the gallery above are more are less either friends (or will become I guess) of Kate or Batwoman (or both). Looking forward how they will fit into the story!

I hope we will get some pictures from the production of the pilot soon!

And of course more news on what will happen to the possible first season afterwards…

Stay tuned!

Batgirl …and the many missed opportunities …to unmask her (…in just 2 comics!)

Now,  a pretty long post follows…hope you like it! 😉

I still could go on a rampage for that evil/crazy decision to discard her cowl in the ongoing comic series…and replace it with that tiny eye mask that doesn’t hide anything.

As if the comic series was run by …Alicia “I don’t want that cowl” Silverstone…

Ok, but I accepted that batshit crazy decision and still hope they will change it back to the Batgirl cowl.

But what is at least similar annoying is the fact, that 99,99% of the villains don’t care about unmasking her, don’t care for finding out who she really is.

So, we didn’t get unmaskings… or even unmasking-attempts in the last years.

And you don’t need an unmasking fetish to wanna find out how she looks like beneath that mask.

Let’s check scenes from just two of the latest comics (and pretend that her mask hides her identity 😉 ):

Scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

Batgirl unmasks the criminal…because it is the logical thing to do.

He tricks her, blinds her with pepper spray (?). For seconds she is helpless, he could easily unmask her…but he decides to run.

Ok, they don’t have time and are on the run, but a quick unmasking would take only seconds.

———————————————-

Scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

His “hand” reaches her face and he throws her around…

Ok, even the fact that he most likely didn’t want to unmask her….shouldn’t her barely secured eye mask come off by accident with a “grab and throw” like that?

But it seems that her mask is glued with magic superglue to her face…

———————————————-

Scene 3 and 4:

(click to enlarge)

These pages have two scenes.

  • He grabs her face and throws her against the wall.

Again her mask doesn’t come off by that, not by the grab to her face…not by the throw. Ok

  • Than she is knocked out….he could do everything…unmask her….or even finish her off, but he walks away (as nearly all villains seems to do).

Reminded me a lot of the Black Scorpion TV series. She nearly gets knocked out every second episode….but what do most of these villains do? They just walk away. Nearly every time! ARGGGG!

————————————

Scene 5:

(click to enlarge)

In the same issue(!) he wins a second time against Batgirl. But he is happy with his quick victory and leaves without using that advantage.

And again, her tiny mask is held by that superglue…no matter what he throws at her…no matter how she gets thrown around.

 

5 scenes from just 2 comic books!

So many things that really frustrates me about it…

Ok, I will still continue to follow Batgirl in the comics as well.

The hope she might get her cowl back (and not the “burnside” version) and that some villain might at least TRY to unmask her.

I mean, if you are a villain, and Batgirl always tries to stop you….. You basically can do two things:

1) Kill her (not good)

2) Unmask her (and ….(a) then controlling her by blackmailing her …or (b)…. release pictures/a video of her unmasked face, which would finish her)

But all they do is to run off….. 🙁

Ok, enough of me, what do YOU think about it?
