Batwoman news: Production paused + Victor Zsasz casted!

More news from the Batwoman production!

The bad news is that the production was paused due to problems with the Covid-19 testing in BC, as the seemingly only lab has capacity problems.

But, on the bright sight this pause will only last for 2 days, so, no big problem for now. I hope that won’t be an issue again in the future.

The good news is that a really cool villain was casted for season 2!

The knife-wielding Victor Zsasz who already appeared in the Gotham TV show and in the Birds of Prey movie, will be facing Batwoman! 🙂

I really like the crazy character, who may not be an “A-league” villain (like Joker or Riddler), but certainly is a “B+ league”-villain.

Alex Morf, the actor who will play him, was actually on the Gotham TV show…but not as Victor Zsasz.

 

Here is the character description:

A charismatic, skilled hitman with high, unpredictable energy. He proudly carves tally marks onto his skin for every victim he kills.

Villainess in red leather VS Supah Ninjas! [Blog exclusive]

I didn’t had the chance to watch the (shorter) season 2 of this show but this will be my last post from season 1.

In this one we have a villainess in red leather and an eye mask to fight the Supah Ninjas!

And here is the video:

Villainess in red leather VS Supah Ninjas! [Blog exclusive]

(on google Drive – as the videos from that show aren’t welcome on Youtube)

As you should know by know I’m not the biggest fan of eye masks, but this one is pretty good as I like the material (leather) and shape of it.

Also the scene where she has the female ninja at her mercy is quite sexy. Damn, I wish she would have been curious to see who is underneath that ninja mask.

An “unmasking-duel” between those two would have been the proper ending for the episode in my opinion 😉

But I really like the last scene her, having two masked women like these two fighting each other….. is always interesting to watch!

The scenes are from this episode:

Set pictures, a video and the first official picture of Javicia Leslie as Batwoman! (updated 2 times)

Finally we can see how Javicia Leslie would look as the new Batwoman aka Ryan Wilder!

As the photographer said these pictures are from episode 2 or 3 of the new season.

And well, and from what we can see….it seems very much like she has the same costume as Ruby Rose aka Kate Kane had.

Well, for starters at least….

At the DC Fandome Caroline Dries mentioned that her costume would evolve during the season to really fit Ryan Wilders character.

Here are my favorite 4 pictures:

Here you can see many more Batwoman pictures from Canadagraphs:

Batwoman – Season 2 – Javicia Leslie first look in the Batsuit on set + Another spoiler

 

If you wanna follow Canadagraphs on Twitter…here you go:

As you can see it seems that the new Batwoman now may use a Batmobile instead of the motorcycle that Kate used in season 1!

And it looks like the car will get a CGI treatment for the final look. Hard to say how it will look in the end right now.

I hope that we get some official promo images really soon!

And some more infos on season 2 wouldn’t be bad either 😉

 

*EDIT*

Some hours later we finally got the first offical picture of Javicia Leslie in the costume!

Ok, you don’t see the full costume as you can only see her head, but it’s a start.

Javicia Leslie posted it on Instagram, and the attached text says:

Look out, Gotham, I’m suited up and ready to go… But just wait until Ryan Wilder puts her own spin on the Batsuit.

Her original post on Instagram:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CFlKJHtBaRU/

 

So it’s “only” her costume for the first episodes in season 2. Hope we will see her final costume soon!

If you compare it with the cowl that Ruby Rose wore, there are only small differences:

Javicia’s nose is even more covered by it and seemingly they don’t use the black paint around her eyes.

And there is a chin strap on that cowl again!

Looking forward to an official promo poster for season 2 with her!

*EDIT2*

Meagan Tandy posted this video snippet on Instagram:

*EDIT1, September 24th*:

New casting news for season 2!

A henchwoman named Whisper and a Zen gardner named Ocean have recurring roles in season 2.

https://deadline.com/2020/09/batwoman-leah-gibson-nathan-owens-recur-the-cw-superhero-series-1234583200/

 

Well, I have seen Jessica Jones but I don’t remember Leah Gibsons role.
She certainly looks like she could be a fine henchwoman!

I thought that I would know Nathan Owens from Black Lightning but I actually confused him with Jordan Calloway.
His role description is…well….quite bizarre….for my taste:
A former soldier who is now a Zen gardner(!) named Ocean???
Sounds like he really was traumatised a LOT in his former career. ;-)

Looking forward to find out more about their roles!

*EDIT2, September 24th* I finished entries 11+12 for the Hall of Fame and will do another one in the next hours!

Mad scientist VS Supah Ninjas! [Blog exclusive]

I posted already scenes from one episode of Supah Ninjas:

The masked villainess Snakeskin VS Supah Ninjas! [Blog exclusive]

Today here are some more scenes with the masked, female ninja!

In this one they have to face a mad scientist who has evil plans in mind…..

And here is the video (only on the blog):

Mad scientist VS Supah Ninjas! [Blog exclusive]

(Google drive)

How great would it be if she would be 10 years older and this wouldn’t be a TV show (primarly) for kids?

However she looks great in that mask and ninja outfit. Too bad no one ever wants to unmask her….

She should have been in that chair as the mad scientist was reaching for the mask of the male ninja. 😉

I imagine his fingers reaching for her mask. Her eyes wide open in fear. She protests as his fingers starts yanking on her mask.

It slides down slowly….revealing her face….. and the scientist recognizes her…..

I got one more episodes with interesting scenes from this show.

Will post that one the next weeks.

Wanna know from which episode this is?

Meanwhile on my other blog you can find a woman with a rather unusual mask who gets into some peril!

Batwoman news: DC Fandome (September)

The 2nd DC Fandome was started yesterday and is still available right now for the next 10 hours.

I was very excited about the Batwoman panel on the DC Fandome in August.

Then it was delayed 3 weeks to the new date. Ok, well, 3 more weeks to wait, no biggie. I hoped that they would produce some promo material in the meantime……

(click to enlarge)

I mean the panel was interesting and fun to watch…..BUT….if you have such a panel with a good 40 minutes runtime….you should present SOMETHING at the very end.

A 30 second teaser, a poster …or at least just one promo image for season 2!

All the talk was nice and interesting….but….no “real” news about season 2 🙁

Caroline Dries explained that there would be two major topics in season 2:

1) Watching Ryan Wilder grow into the role of Batwoman with her background as she wasn’t treated well by the system

2) Kate’s disappearance and how it affects everybody differently.

Also it was mentioned that Ryan Wilders batwoman suit will be different or “evolves” differently (from Kates version) during the season so it would be fitting to her persona.

Some more details can be found here:

https://tvline.com/2020/09/12/batwoman-season-2-batsuit-changes-alice-reaction/

 

These “mini-reveals” are interesting, but not really thrilling as they were already mentioned in the past or are predictable developments that follow aspects you already know about.

I watched a lot of panels from other shows as well, at least Batwoman is in good company.
The only panel with some exciting reveals was the Titans panel. And these reveals were even already in the shorter version that was presented 3 weeks ago….

Actually the “InsiderVerse” was nearly more interesting as there a lot of interesting videos.
I “saved” a lot of them to watch on a later date. 😉

Well, as the filming is running now for 10 days I hope we will get some news or promo material very soon. It is needed!
I hope for a tiny teaser in early october and a longer season trailer in November.

Some promo pictures and posters should also pop up in the next weeks/months.

Batwoman news: Casting news, pictures and DC Fandome reminder

Before the Batwoman Panel on the DC Fandome will be available in barely 34 hours from now…

https://schedule.dcfandome.com/e/5f343a57ad87080017244a14

….with some major news….there are already some news to post before!

Safiyah has been casted for the show!

https://deadline.com/2020/09/batwoman-shivaani-ghai-recur-the-cw-superhero-series-1234574512/

In the show it seems that Alice is her main enemy. In the comics Kate Kane/Batwoman has a complicated relationsship with her…but as Kate isn’t around anymore (at least for a while until she comes back 😉 ) it seems that Alice will have to face her. Safiyah was already mentioned on some occasions in season 1, will be interesting to see what her goal is in the TV show.

I don’t know the actress so far, but I am looking forward to see her on screen.

One week has passed since they had started shooting season 2.

And of course some pictures show up on social media.

Here are my two favorites from the last days:

Alice is back in action! 🙂

Meagan Tandy has posted this picture:

I wonder how her role will change in season 2….

On sunday I will make a big post about season 2 of Batwoman as there should be some juicy news to post about from saturday 😉

Ravager in action + news of season 3 of Titans!

Somehow I completely forgot to post about Ravager in season 2 of Titans.

Ok, her mask is more like a fashion item in the show and doesn’t really give her a secret identity, but a mask is a mask.

And this mask is solid and covers enough of her face 🙂

For this video I edited two scenes together. The first scene os from episode 12 of season 2 and the 2nd is from episode 13.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Some fine fight scenes and I like how she unmasks her father and then herself at the end.

There are some more scenes with her in mask, but nothing with action if I remember right.

Would be nice to see more from her in season 3 if she is still around then. Perhaps then she might have a secret identity and fights against people who don’t know who is under that mask.

Some INTERESTING news on season 3 of Titans:

On the DC Fandome they talked about the upcoming season 3 of Titans.
They confirmed that
A) season 3 will be set in GOTHAM! (Oh…. the possibilities for appearances of masked women!!!) 🙂
B) there will be also a commissioner Gordon! And not the one YOU think! It won’t be Jim Gordon….it will be BARBARA Gordon who leads the Gotham police!
That is already good news!

Of course it doesn’t mean that Barbara will dress up for her other job at night….but who knows? It wouldn’t surprise me if Barbara is frustrates as hell with the police in Gotham and pursues justice in a more “direct” way….at night 😉

At the DC Fandome on September 12 there will be a 30 minute panel, hopefully some more news already shows up there.
The panel on the last weekend had only 15 minutes.

Another masked heroine on this TV show is Dove and I posted about her best scene in season 1 a while back:

https://maskripper.org/a-masked-heroine-dove-and-two-heroes-hawk-robin-in-action-blog-exclusive-video

Quite a while ago Ravager was in season 2 of Arrow, here my post from back then (with Summer Glau as Ravager)

She had a great rubber cowl and actually was unmasked! Even they cheated on that big time….

Do you watch Titans so far? What do you think of it?

Batwoman news: Filming for season 2 has finally started + DC Fandome

Today is a special day!

Today, on Septemper 3rd, the filming for season 2 of Batwoman has begun!

After the pandemic stopped the filming at the end of season 1 in mid-march and thereby cut the season short (20 episodes instead of 22)….the cameras are finally rolling again.

So a break of nearly 6 months comes to an end. Normally season 2 would have started next month, but that was of course changed as well as they just couldn’t film in the last months.

With the start of the filming we will get finally some more info on season 2 as it was very quiet the last weeks.

And the Batwoman panel on the 2nd DC Fandome is just 9 days away (September 12)!

It has 40 minutes and should bring some interesting news for sure! Especially I’m curious to see Javicia Leslie and her new Batwoman costume.

So, the next weeks should get really interesting when it comes to Batwoman news! 🙂

Masked villainess VS cops!

Thanks to a nice guy I was pointed to this episode of a TV show. 🙂

The episode has 2 scenes with a masked woman in action.

 

Preview:

Here is the video:

Ok, if you don’t understand german it’s minus point, but you should still enjoy it as there is enough aspects for folks like us in the video 😉



WATCH the video first before you continue to read!
WATCH the video first before you continue to read!
WATCH the video first before you continue to read!

I did edit the video to not show her face before the actual unmasking to build up the mystery. So I excluded a short scene until she is actually masked in that van.
She also does have some scenes with her practising kick-boxing just before the first scene of the video.
A shame that she didn’t show her skills in a scene where she is masked. She should have fought some cops before they manage to unmask her….
It was also nice that she wore solid leather boots in both scenes.

She was an ex-cops and they know who was under that mask by the end, that’s why she unmasked herself as her secret identity wasn’t so secret anymore.
Perhaps I will watch the full episode to fully understand the background story 😆

P.S.: Funny enough the video was blocked in germany, austria and switzerland by Youtube.

“The Batman” teaser ….with some Catwoman scenes

Time to make a post about “The Batman”!

Yesterday a first -very long- teaser was revealed at the DC Fandome.

Before the teaser director Matt Reves talked about the movie and his vision on it.

Seems like he is very focused to make his own unique version of Batman, that is as much different than the version we saw so far.

That is not a bad thing, even I think he might have overdone it a little with some designs (Batman costume, Batmobile).

Of course that can only finally be judged when the movie is finally out in the theaters.

He also mentioned that they shoot only 25% of the movie so far and that Catwoman …isn’t Catwoman at the beginning of the movie.

Well, I really hope that she will become Catwoman with a stunning catsuit and everything as early as possible in the movie.

After watching all season of Gotham I have enough of watching Selina becoming Catwoman (very slowly) 😉

Knowing how little was filmed so far, this teaser is highly unusual. Normally such a teaser would be only 30-60 seconds, and normally they would include scenes from the whole movie as they often are finished with the shooting more or less.

Here it is:

Well, I am thrilled and worried at the same time about this one.

I never saw any movie with Robert Pattinson except the first Twilight movie, and that was a long time ago.

I will watch newer movies of him like “Swiss Army Men” and “The Lighthouse” in the next weeks.

So far I’m not thrilled by how he looks as Bruce Wayne…

…a solid hair cut would help for starters 😉

But well, perhaps he will change and evolve during the movie as he is only in his second year as Batman.

Slowly I get more used to his Batsuit:

It is very different from the ones we know so far from the movies. Will be interesting to see it in action.

The teaser offers a great, dark atmosphere with a good soundtrack in my opinion.

Gotham is a here a really dark place… in several ways.

And that fits perfectly!

We get to see an early version of Catwoman in the trailer:

(click to enlarge)

That is certainly a very….”special” cut of a ski mask! It looks very much homemade, but it’s a solid disguise at least.

Certainly that is a first, primitive version of her Catwoman outfit. Please let her get her real Catwoman suit and cowl as soon as possible in the movie!!!

I am a little afraid she presents that in the final moments of the movie as she disappears into the night. And then a new Batman movie comes out with a complete new storyline and we might never see her again in the real Catwoman outfit. ——– #nightmare

It will be very interesting how Batman and Catwoman and their alter-ego will come along in this movie. In the teaser Batman wants to stop Catwoman, so they fight each other!

But how will they find out who is hiding underneath these masks? Will they work together at some point in the movie somehow? Some pictures form the set point in that direction.

From the teaser it is impossible to judge how Zoe Kravitz will fit into that role.

Well, I hope we will get more pictures and info in the next months when filming finally continues!

Especially looking forward to more Catwoman pictures and the first glimpse on the villains of the movie (Riddler, Penguin)!

What do you think of the teaser?

Are you looking forward to the movie?

DC Fandome – August 22/23 + September 12/13

[Post 2 of 2 for today!]

The DC Fandome is on the next weekend (August 22 and 23), time to make another post about it!

*EDIT* News came in yesterday that most of the TV shows and everything besides the movie panels are moved to a second date: September 12th!

What is the DC Fandome?

2… 24 hours virtual cons, entry free, watchable across the globe with lots of panels on upcoming DC shows and movies….and much more…

Here you can fix your own schedule so you know when to watch something you are interested in:
https://schedule.dcfandome.com/

Regular website:
https://dcfandome.com/

Of course the Batwoman panel in the Watchverse is THE main attraction for me, no doubt!
It will have 40 minutes and the cast will discuss season 1 and give a sneak peek into season 2. I also expect that we see promo material of Javicia in the costume for the first time!

Besides that I am thrilled about the Wonder Woman 1984 panel and the “The Batman” panel (hope to finally see the Catwoman costume)!
And of course the other Arrowverse shows will have interesting panels as well!
I am hoping for some juicy trailers, interesting talks and great promo material!

I already made a schedule for the event…..well, I am sure I won’t get much sleep in these 24 hours….

 Which panels do you wanna watch?

Leave your comment below!

P.S.:

Batwoman, Season 1 on Blu-ray and DVD

Stargirl – Season 1, episode 13 – Stargirl and Wildcat in the final battle (of the season)

[Post 1 of 2 for today!]

 

So, this will be my last Stargirl post about an episode in 2020.

A little late this time, but there wasn’t much interest in it so far (on my youtube channel and Blog) so I guess it’s no so bad.

So, let’s start with some pictures of the final episode of season 1!

Preview (for both videos):

(click to enlarge)

And here are the videos:

HEAVY SPOILERS ahead, I would recommend to watch the whole episode first!

That was a good finale for the season in my opinion.

Will be interesting to see which ISA members are really dead besides Brainwave.

No clue what happened to tigress. Sportsmaster may still be alive as well.

Dragon King have cheated death before, but I do think he is dead after all.

Icicle….well, he was crashed to bits…but maybe he can melt the single parts and put himself together like the the T-1000, even I doubt it.

Cindy is still there, Solomon Grundy and the Gambler too. Plus two new bad guys that are shown or mentioned. Need to do some background work on them.

I’m glad that Wildcat killed Brainwave, that was the right move, he deserved it big time.

I’m not happy that there are still some folks who know who Stargirl is, her secret identity isn’t really secret. Somehow I have the feeling that there will be always bad guys who know her secret

which makes her mask more decorative then concealing.

Also that there was no unmasking action at all in the whole season. Not even a self unmasking or unmasking attempt.

I had feared it would be like that since Brainwave found out that Courtney could use the staff and its powers in episode 1. Luckily he was silenced for a while but no one from the JSA took an effort to go for her mask in any situation.

Don’t get me wrong I relly enjoyed the whole season and the finale too as it delivered a lot of intense action and a lot of screentime for the masked heroines.

So far the public didn’t really took notice of the whole ISA and JSA, they fight their battle in the shadows pretty much. I wonder how that will develop in the future.

Blue Valley is such a picture perfect community with seemingly no crime to fight at all…. pretty much the exact opposite to Gotham.

So, I don’t think the JSA will really have to fight common criminals in season 2. Ok, it would be an unfair fight with their super powers, but Supergirl does it all the time, even you can’t compare the situation.

The end of the episode was a little too much….Stargirl and Stripe sitting on that surprisingly strong tower, the american flag was waving in the wind…..

Will be interesting too see how Starman will fit into the team in season 2. Will more heroes join the JSA?

What plans and members the new ISA will have? Who will be in it?

I do hope that there will be some unmasking action or secret identity struggle in season 2. That would be really great!

Also, how many episode will season 2 have? This one had 13, but now the show has moved to the CW, it may get more in season 2. Hard to say as it isn’t even clear when the second season will start.

P.S.:

Am I the only one who thought the big satelitte dishes and the gigantic undergorund base was worthy of a 60’s/70’s Bond villain?

Reminded me of it….especially as Gambler also had a cat as he was working on his evil plan 😆

You are welcome to leave a comment!

What do you think about season 1 in general and the final episode?

What do you hope to see in season 2?
