A Captivating Catwoman

 

Cynthia:  You know, I was never a Batman person. I fell in love with Christopher Reeve as Superman and that was all my heart had room for.

Marcy:  How selfish.

Cynthia:  Well, I was thirteen. And human teenagers have a laser focus at that age. Superman was “it”.

Marcy:  For someone who dresses as a cat on occasion, shouldn’t you be crazy for Catwoman?

Cynthia:  Strangely, no. And I never thought the actors playing her in the blockbuster movies were all that intriguing either. But this poster caught my eye and I find it very intriguing. It’s for the TV show, Gotham, which is coming out this fall. It’s a prequel of sorts to Batman. Catwoman is a teenager.

The poster strikes me as moody and thoughtful and containing immense depth. The opposite of a shallow comic book movie. I also like how it doesn’t hit you over the head that this is Catwoman. Rather than have her in the typical catsuit, her goggles suggest cat ears. And in the photo below, the buildings behind her form the cat ears.

 

 

Cynthia:  This is so cool. I can’t wait for the show.

Marcy:  Wow. Hollywood hooked you.

Cynthia:  Well, it is what they’re best at. I so hope the show lives up to its hype and that Catwoman is as intriguing as her poster suggests.

Marcy:  Catwoman would be even more intriguing if she was pictured with a certain white cat with a mysterious black eye patch.

Cynthia:  Really, now?

Marcy:  Of course. That grey cat they’ve got is obviously NOT a method actor. She probably cries if her toenail polish gets chipped. Now I, Marcy Cat, would be like Pacino or Brando and be in homicidal mode from the moment they say action until the moment they say cut. And beyond even. I’m sure I’ll win an Emmy.

Cynthia:  Or a restraining order.

    I've never read the Batman comics but I am excited for the show myself. It'll be interesting to see how they tell the origins stories for all these "famous" Batman characters. The new Catwoman looks like a young version of Michelle Pfeiffer from Batman Returns to me!

      You're right! She does look like a young Michelle Pfeiffer. I will be interested to hear what you think of the show, Lisa! I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be too violent for me but hopefully not. Sigh… I just so thin skinned. Hopefully the writing, directing, and acting will all be top notch.

    It is a hauntingly beautiful picture. Selina's eyes are amazingly catlike.

    I think they should have a "Marcy Cat Woman", with a cute black eye patch :). Good points about how they didn't go overboard with the cat-thing. Instinctively I knew they were talking about cat woman, but until you pointed it out, i didn't notice that she didn't have cat ears or a black unitard. I hope, I hope, I hope it's good (but there are so many bad comic book recreation movies and tv shows out right now that i'm not holding my breath). Let me know if you check it out!

      I am not holding my breath either. I just got very hopeful when I saw their promotional posters and trailer. I will let you know if I think it is worth watching. I'm afraid I may be too critical though. I am one of those annoying people who criticizes everything. lol

    That is very interesting, she looks like two different people in each photo. That first one is really cool! And thank you for suggesting I read a classic Marcy Very Much blog. You were right, I did also like that one!! 🙂

    I like how interesting she looks. Very cool! I was obsessed with Supergirl when I was a kid. I must have watched it a hundred times. I think Marcy should definitely have a cameo. I was never a fan of Batman until that awesome thing the city did for Batkid. That made my whole year with the happiness seeing what the city did for that little boy. Chills.

      Oh my gosh that Batkid event was so wonderful! I liked Supergirl too! The one with Helen Slater as Supergirl, right? Sadly, I can't even get Marcy to pose for a picture with me.

    My favorite Catwoman was Julie Newmar. I loved her Mod hairdo and the old TV show had a fun comic quality. The movies just got too dark and I never like it when the movies change actors and directors. Basically, I don't think there should be sequels for any movie.
    Because this TV show if a prequel, it's always interesting to hear the back story of how the characters came to be. Like Wicked, which I loved, but I have to admit that there does not seem to be many original ideas anymore. Someone should invent a new Superhero or fun character.
    Have a great day,

      Julie Newmar! I forgot about her!
      Honestly, I think this show is going to be too violent for me. Sigh… a new FUN superhero is a fabulous idea! We should put our thinking caps on and come up with one. Hmmmm…
