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!

 

“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:

Regular website:

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?
