It’s Batman Day: Who’s Your Favorite Catwoman?

Catwoman, she’s one of the most iconic DC Comics characters of all time. She also happens to be one of my favorite comic book characters for her sleek catsuits, her unabashed flirtatious nature, and her incredible ability to kick serious butt. Several women have taken the mantle as the feline and very capable femme fatale and today, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought she would be a perfect fit. Enjoy!

Julie Newmar

The first major appearance for Catwoman was on the iconic 60s’ Batman series and the actress who brought her to life was Julie Newmar. I don’t know anything about this version of Catwoman but I couldn’t leave her off of the list considering that she holds so much importance to Catwoman’s time on the small screen.

Eartha Kitt

Before you had Wesley Snipes making history as Blade or Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther you had Eartha Kitt as the first African-American actress to play Catwoman in the 60s’ Batman series. She wasn’t playing the role of Batman’s love interest in the series but she was still able to kick some serious butt and pave the way for other black actresses to play the character (Halle Berry and Zoe Kravitz.) That’s pretty awesome.

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer is undoubtedly the most iconic version of the character. Transforming from a timid, glass-wearing secretary into a confident, dangerous and very alluring lady in a remarkably shiny catsuit with a whip, Pfeiffer is the best thing about Batman Returns.

Halle Berry

Okay…this is my first time seeing this version of Catwoman’s outfit and it’s definitely cool, especially, I’m sure, for guys, but unfortunately the only superhero film to ever be helmed by a black woman would be deemed one of the worst superhero movies of all time.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway would be the next actress to squeeze into a tight black suit and catch Batman’s fancy as the fascinating Seline Kyle. Now, unlike the other Catwomen who were called Catwoman in their respective roles Nolan referred to her only as Selina, changing her storyline just a bit. Undoubtedly, she’s one of the best things about the film.

Camren Bicondova

And last but not least, there is Camren’s portrayal of the iconic character but what makes her so different is she is the only version that is shown as a teenager who grows up over a course of seasons on the show. That’s pretty cool.

And then, we’ll have Zoe Kravitz next. I can’t wait to see her as Catwoman. *squeal*

So, of these six versions of the iconic Catwoman, which is your favorite? For me, undoubtedly my favorite, despite Michelle’s clear iconicism, my favorite Selina is Anne Hathaway. I think she’s truthfully beautiful, I love her dagger heels, and plus, she’s part of Nolan’s films and I love his concept of these classic DC Comics characters.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

A Special Fan Art Saturday

Last year on this day we lost a great man, Chadwick Boseman, who impacted the world with his presence on and offscreen. His death is one of the saddest tragedies in recent memory that I can remember but his legacy lives on through his work and his powerful message. Today, I’d like to honor him with a special edition of my Fan Art posts. Enjoy!

This is another piece by an artist I could not find but it is very clear this piece is gorgeous and maybe even tear-inducing.

Just putting this post together has gotten me quite a bit emotional actually. Chadwick Boseman was a beautiful person and I thank him for bringing such a powerful, good, inspiring character to the big screen for my own children to see one day.

R.I.P Chadwick Boseman.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

These New Entertainment Weekly Covers for ‘Eternals’ Are Amazing!

Let me tell you, the 2021 Marvel train has been the greatest entertainment ride I think I’ve had since January. Roughly every week feels like Christmas with a new episode of a Marvel Disney+ series or a new announcement that has managed to blow my mind. And considering that we’re getting so much Marvel content in these last few months, the joy I’ve had about this franchise that I have grown to love so much is almost unbearably intense. I find myself having to tell myself to calm down just a little bit every week because I see something new and well, I had to tell myself the same thing today when ten incredible Entertainment Weekly covers for the Eternals came out today. Here they are.

Is Marvel’s New Lineup of Characters Some Of the Best in the MCU?

For thirteen years now, the MCU has been one of the most incredible franchises. It took actors like the three Chrisses, Paul Rudd and Chadwick Boseman, Tom Hiddleston and Tom Holland, and so many others and turned them into superstars not just because they were in great movies but because Sarah Halley Finn knew they would be PERFECT for the roles they would play.

After Stan Lee’s death, I was skeptical for the future of Marvel Studios. Would the franchise still be great or would it lose its steam? I guess I underestimated just how brilliant Kevin Feige and the rest of the team has been through the years because the latest slate of characters and the actors that play them have been incredible.

Let’s just dive into the brand new characters and actors we have and will get to meet this year in the MCU.

WandaVision

How And When WandaVision's Agatha Harkness First Discovered Scarlet Witch's  Powers, According To The Director - CINEMABLEND

The first piece of MCU content since Spider-Man: Far from Home, WandaVision was a risky return to the franchise we know and love so much but boy did it pay off. Not only was it a fantastic series with plenty of twists and turns and a very compelling story but it introduced us to two new powerful female characters that left quite the impression.

Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness stole the show every time she was onscreen. At times she was just straight down hilarious and at other times I would stare at the screen in awe because she did, in fact, feel like a perfect witch. She was the perfect foil to Wanda’s depression and I hope she returns in the future.

Captain Marvel 2 got a classic Marvel setup from the WandaVision finale -  Polygon

And then there was Teyonah Parris’s debut as Monica Rambeau. Do I think her acting skills need a little more refining? Yes I do, but I cannot deny my excitement to see her officially become one of the most powerful superheroes in the universe in The Marvels and to see her don whatever suit the incredible costume designers have created for her.

I also think she’s going to be able to deliver some powerful scenes opposite Brie Larson that could definitely have the potential to yank on my heart strings. She’s going to be a great fit with The Avengers.

I Think Loki May Actually Be In ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’

I’m not one to get worked up by rumors…unless those rumors are really substantial. Apparently, before Loki had even ended, there were rumors going around that Loki was going to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Those rumors seemed even more validated after the Loki finale.

The finale’s only post-credits scene featured a simple but very exciting reveal; Loki Will Return in Season 2. Immediately I began to assume that this would be Loki’s next rodeo instead of an appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness but then something occurred to me.

Neither Kevin Feige, Victoria Alonso, or Tom Hiddleston have disputed these rumors that he would appear in the Doctor Strange sequel and considering how good Marvel Studios has been at keeping secrets lately it’s very plausible that he could play a sizable role in the film.

And here’s another clue that yes, he could actually be in the film.

Tom Hiddleston Recaps Loki's Entire MCU Story So Far In 30 Seconds

When Loki was coming out Tom Hiddleston did several promotional videos, one being a 30-second history lesson about Loki’s story in the MCU. And in this video he still has his black dyed hair!

They had been finished filming Loki so why would he have his hair still dyed? Meanwhile, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness had just concluded filming in mid-April. Loki would premiere on Disney+ a little over a month later, meaning he could’ve done this promotional video shortly after potentially filming for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which was in production in London where he lives!

And is it just a coincidence that Michael Waldron, the head writer for Loki, is also writing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? 👀

Oh, the dots are connecting and if Loki is in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness I’m going to lose my mind!

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

The Multiverse Is Open But Iron Man Should Remain Dead

Loki has changed the scope of the MCU forever with a chance for Marvel Studios to take this story in any way it wants thanks to the multiverse being created. With the arrival of the multiverse it seems like anything is possible.

Have you ever wanted to know what Emily Blunt would’ve been like as Black Widow? Or John Krasinski as Captain America? The multiverse could make it happen.

Do you want to see Chris Evans return as Captain America? There’s been rumors that he’s eyeing a return to the MCU and I’m pretty sure after what’s happened with Loki that’s going to happen. Hugh Jackman may have even teased a reprisal of his iconic role as Wolverine in the MCU via his Instagram page a couple of weeks ago.

Or do you want Deadpool to meet The Avengers? We’re in the multiverse now. Anything could happen.

So yes, the Multiverse is open and that means Kevin Feige can run wild with his imagination but there are some things that need to remain permanent and one such instance is Iron Man’s death.
