SuperHeroHype​.com has tons of hype and news on a slew of super hero movies in pro­duc­tion or pre-production. Along with the obvi­ous X-Men 3, Spider-Man 2, DareDevil 2, and Hulk 2, there are more than two dozen oth­ers. From the pages of Marvel comics are films in var­i­ous stages of pro­duc­tion for: Fantastic Four, the third and (alleged­ly) final Blade film, Blade: Trinity, which will spin off into Nightstalkers, Iron Man, Deathlok, Man Thing: The Nature of Fear, The Incredibles, Werewolf By Night, Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, The Punisher, Namor, Black Panther, and Elektra, a solo sto­ry for Jennifer Garner’s 2003 DareDevil char­ac­ter, which will be released pri­or to, and set up the sto­ry for, DareDevil 2.

DC Comics, who had great suc­cess with the Superman fran­chise in the Eighties, the Nineties’ Batman films (until they hired a fuck­ing moron direc­tor who screwed up the fran­chise), and their suc­cess­ful tele­vi­sion series, “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”, “Superboy”, “Smallville”, and the ani­mat­ed “Justice League”, “Batman”, “Superman”, and “Teen Titans”, will, of course, be pro­ject­ing its prop­er­ties onto the big screen. Specifically DC has already begun prin­ci­pal pho­tog­ra­phy on Catwoman, star­ring Halle Berry in the title role, and Constantine, a Blade-esque psue­do super hero hor­ror fran­chise star­ring Keanu Reeves. Set to begin pro­duc­tion over the next two years are: A new Superman (they’ve been writ­ing and reject­ing dozens of scripts for near­ly ten years now), Batman: Intimidation, and the long-awaited live-action return of every girl’s idol, the ulti­mate girl-power icon, Wonder Woman.

I’ve seen some stills from Catwoman. I have to be hon­est: The cos­tume looks ter­ri­ble. I much pre­fer Michelle Pfeiffer to Halle Berry, and Pfeiffer’s cos­tume was sexy though it revealed very lit­tle. Berry’s cos­tume (not her fault, clear­ly) leaves lit­tle to the imag­i­na­tion. It’s not sexy; it’s slutty.

I dig the mask (which, I under­stand, most fans don’t and Berry has had to defend), but, that’s it. Here’s a pic as pub­lished in Entertainment Weekly. Can you envi­sion swing­ing around the chilly city night, run­ning from rooftop to rooftop, in those high-heels and leather straps? Puh-leez.

    That cos­tume is ter­ri­ble. You’re absolute­ly right about that. I’ve been read­ing com­ic books (Marvel, most­ly) for 12+ years, and to be hon­est, I’m not real­ly opposed to slut­ty cos­tumes just for the sake of being slut­ty. But this cos­tume is not prag­mat­ic, and it’s not inter­est­ing, and it’s real­ly not Catwoman. That hav­ing been said… I’ll prob­a­bly still see the movie. I’m a fan-boy at heart…

    I must agree with my hus­band. The out­fit is wrong. I, too, am no prude and I think a good super hero­ine is where skin tight clothes with often flesh show­ing, but this out­fit does­n’t make sense. All super hereoine’s wear heals. I’ve nev­er thought it was prac­ti­cal, but it is stan­dard uni­form. Open toes? I don’t get it. Why are here pants shred­ded. Do cats often sharp­en their claws on them­selves? What are the straps across her tor­so. I don’t mind the mask. That is the only part that does­n’t rub me wrong. That being said. If remy sees it the chances are I’ll be with him. :-)

    After see­ing that out­fit… I don’t think I can even go see the film, even if its free. My stan­dards havent dropped that much.

    are you freak­ing serios about that Halley crap, no oscar award can help what I think it will look like, esp.… “Lundgrens Punisher”

    Look I am big com­ic book fanat­ic. But when it comes to com­ic being tran­formed into movies I have learned two things that no mat­ter what we say it does not mat­ter and that it is not going to por­trayed the way it should be. Lundgren did do Punisher. I mean thatIt is the movie idea that is being sold not the char­ac­ter them­selves, or their cos­tumes. I mean they have kids play­ing the fan­tas­tic four

The movie indus­try is run­ning out of ideas and the “right” tal­ent­ed actors and actress­es to do these parts

    I’ll proabably see the movie as well, but you just know they’ll tai­lor the action scenes to accom­mo­date the cos­tume. She won’t be in any sit­u­a­tions where she might stub her exposed toe. She won’t have to hang upside-down where she might fall out of the bra. The weath­er won’t be too cold. She won’t run for too long lest the thighs of the pants tear. Yada yada.

    I’m putting too much thought into this.

    Thanks for the post, Remy.

  10. Pariah Burke says:

    I’ll see it, just to hope the sto­ry is decent.

  11. Pariah Burke says:

    Nope. Lundgren nev­er did the “Punisher.” I refuse to include that in my real­i­ty, and you can’t make me. Nyaah!

  12. Pariah Burke says:

    The movie indus­try has been out of ideas for over a decade. Only rarely does a unique vision come along… Eventually, though, even the vision­ar­ies give in to the pres­sure to con­form. Conformity, for­mu­la, is the way the indus­try runs; mon­ey isn’t giv­en to make non-formulaic projects.
