DC Fandome 2021: Batwoman TV show, Batgirl movie, Gotham Knights, and “The Batman”

Yesterday I watched the DC Fandome from beginning to end and wanna talk about the most interesting parts for me and this blog.

Of course, I will include the videos here so you know what I am talking about:

 

Batwoman TV show:

I wasn’t expecting to see much new, and that’s exactly what was delivered 😉

Well, there was a season trailer, but that basically shows scenes that were either in episode 1 or already included in earlier trailers.

A sneak peak for episode 2 was included as well, but that was just a short scene with Ryan and Alice.

And there was a short segment in which Camrus Johnson was talking about becoming Batwing and what that means to him, but ok, that isn’t relevant for this site.

It was very nice to have Camrus Johnson, Rachel Skarsten, and Javicia Leslie as guests in the event.

Batgirl movie:

There was a very short segment about the upcoming Batgirl movie, check it out at 2:29:45

Well, no big reveal, but some interesting news:

  • Yes, she will wear a real cowl and not the damn eye mask!
  • Yes, she will have red hair!
  • That concept art is verrry promising. If that would be the final, real costume……it would be AWESOME!

 

At IMDB the movie is listed for 2022, I think that is very optimistic as they are still in pre-production, but I can’t wait to know more about the movie.

Ok, it’s “just” one movie and not a Batgirl TV show…but I am very excited for it.

My main concern, for now, is the costume. It’s good that they will use the cowl and not the eye mask. I fear they will use the purple Burnside costume which isn’t exactly sexy.

And I really home the cowl has a chin strap, unlike one of the new versions where it basically is more like a helmet.

I would choose the black costume from the Arkham video games…. or the version from “Batman and Robin” but with a cowl with chin strap. 😉

Of course, the script is also VERY important and I hope Christina Hodson has a good one in the making.

Gotham Knights:

We got a new story trailer:

This is basically the worst Batgirl costume available.

Thank god, I saw her in another costume in promo pictures and after all, you can choose different costumes in such video games.

I’m looking forward to this game! I hope it gets anywhere close in quality to the Arkham Games.

The Batman

Here is the new trailer:

Nice trailer! Ok, I’m looking VERY much forward to this one!

It will be very different from the existing Batman movies….if that is a good thing or not….we will know in March next year.

I am (still) not sure about Robert Pattinson as Batman… the only movie I ever saw with him is “The Lighthouse” in which he showed some really good acting skills.

My main concern now is the Catwoman in this one (surprise! 😉 )

Yeah, I know she is in her very early Catwoman career and that is not her “final” costume.

But….this makeshift costume and shredded ski mask…. look….rather……awful …in my opinion.

And another issue for me is her height. I like tall women, and she is not only small, she is really tiny with 1,57m (5 feet 2 inches).

The combination of her height, that short haircut and her “costume” doesn’t work for me. At least judging from the trailer.

There are two scenes with her that I like in the trailer. Selina exiting the car in these boots and fishnets….that is sexy. And with these heels, she looks better in several ways.

The scene where she touches Batman’s cowl and asks who would be under it is quite nice as well.

I really hope that they don’t learn their secret identities as it happens normally in the movies/TV shows….

It would be really great if there would be some unmasking action between these two 😉

Will be interesting to see how she will portray this iconic character! It will at least be a better portrayal as in a certain movie from a crazy french director.

Feel welcome to leave your comment on any of these movies/games!
