Time for a post about Catwoman (and Batgirl) for a change!
I know this movie for quite some time but didn’t post about it yet. Normally I wanna post every scene with a masked, female character from a movie or TV episode.
If I would do that here I would need to practically post half the movie, which would be highly problematic 😉
So, in this case, I wanna post just my favorite scene.

And here is the video:
The Catwoman VS Batman storylines were always interesting for me. I just love their relationship as they are so attracted to each other, but at the same time, they stand on different sides of the law. Catwoman isn’t a black or white character like most ones. She often is a criminal but has her moral principles and even fights alongside the good guys from time to time.
The “Batman: Hush” storyline is a rather famous one and is a favorite of some of the hardcore comic fans. This movie is quite different in regards to the story, and some of these fans don’t like that. I know these comics, but I don’t really mind getting something different with this movie.
The movie has a LOT of Catwoman scenes in it, so I am already very happy for that fact alone. Plus you can also see Batgirl in it, also it is “just” the Batgirl Burnside version which I don’t like that much, due to her costume and cowl. The cowl is basically just a helmet that isn’t attached to anything or secured with a chinstrap. Ok, that’s at least better than the last comic book version where she only had a tiny eye mask….but I better don’t get started on that one 😉
I like this Catwoman version, and it’s also good that she actually is wearing her goggles so she is disguised pretty well. The fight with Batgirl here could have been (a lot) longer for my taste, but well, I get that it wouldn’t fit at that point as Batman is badly wounded and needs help.
Poison Ivy has an interesting role in this one and there are quite a lot of other villains and heroes to be found in the movie.
I really like how the thug tries to unmask Batman but gets zapped while trying. A masked heroine could use such a defense mechanism as well 😉
I recommend that you check out the whole movie, especially if you like to see masked women such as Catwoman and Batgirl 😉
Time for a little update on the eagerly awaited Batwoman TV show! We are now “only” 46 days away from the airing of the first episode on the CW (October 6th).
46 days is still a lot, but as I first saw a countdown over at Batwoman.tv, it was at nearly 300 days, so…. the number from today sounds so much better. 😉
What happened in the 10 days since my last Batwoman-news post? Well, not too much, but it is worth a new post for sure!
A new teaser trailer:
I love the dark vibes in this one. And Alice isn’t exactly happy about the news that ….a (new) Bat is watching over Gotham 😉
Some pictures I picked up in the last days:

Chicago set pictures 1-6:
Well, it looks like a prisoner transport went…wrong and someone may have escaped! I guess Batwoman will need to catch that villain/villainess.
Pictures with the unmasked Batwoman:
Well, the guy with the blue shirt is really lucky to get pictures with her in costume! The other guy on the 2nd picture is actually Camrus Johnson (who plays Luke Fox) …who equips Batwoman with her gadgets.
Gotham Gazette/Batman pictures:
Also interesting! Someone seems to miss Batman (who is vanished in this TV show)! But who? And why? And why that puppet?
Questions over questions!
“Come out and play Batman!” sounds pretty playful. It seems that Alice thought in the trailer for the episode that Batman would be after her. But she surely have noticed quickly that it isn’t BatMAN anymore….who is afer her.
Guess we have to wait to get more info about the person who placed that puppet there.
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.

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)
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?
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!
(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.
Hey folks, long time there was no new material “Masks off!”, my little “unmaskings in comics”-section.
Now I do have something.
The next gallery has all the catwoman/selina pictures from 2 comics, but check it out…
(click to enlarge it)
Well, isn’t that weird?
Bane seems to know who catwoman is. The recognise Selina with her wig on (she isn’t shown with it before…). The “unwig/unmask” her, put her in her Catwoman suit (?????? WHAT?!!!), tie her up, and in the next picture she is free again…. A lot isn’t shown in these comics.
Hmhmh, all pretty weird!
Now I wonder what happens next. Will Bane get revenge on her?
Perhaps he will rip her mask off…it’s only a slight chance, but that would be GREAT!
