Batman: Year One trailer, and news on the Catwoman short that'll be on on the DVD as well



While in other news, joining ranks along with the Spectre, Jonah Hex, and Green Arrow, Catwoman'll be getting a 15 minute cartoon to accompany the main movie on the DVD.

The synopsis,

"In Catwoman, the femme fatale tangles with crime boss Rough Cut (a brand-new character created for this short, voiced by Futurama‘s John DiMaggio) in a breathless and brutal 15-minute chase through Gotham City tracking down a mysterious cargo shipment."

Selina'll be the first female character to star in a DC Showcase short, and will be the second female character to headline in a DCUniverse movie after Wonder Woman back in her solo movie.

On another note, here is a brief essay thing I've written in defense of the current origin and backstory of Selina. If people are interested and stuff.

For legality, Selina being silly, from Streets of Gotham 19 or so,

This looks promising, but it got me wishing for a Catwoman: Year One film adaptation.

Is there a confirmed release date yet? And where the hell is Gordon in the trailer? :(

here is a brief essay thing I've written in defense of the current origin and backstory of Selina.

I just don't even see the need for Selina to be "inspired" by Batman. I prefer how it was presented in her first appearance, that she was already a world-class cat-burglar before ever meeting Batman.

Her being a prostitute just feels like Miller's incapability to feature a strong woman who isn't also hyper-sexualized, and her being a dominatrix just feels like Miller further confusing the issues of strength and sexuality.

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; if it really must be reconciled, and I don't think it does, why not have her be a high-class call girl, who transitioned from that into a con artist and cat burglar? Her training as a high-end escort gives her access into the world of those whose wealth she'd be interested in stealing. A little time as a con artist diversifies her criminal portfolio. And it might even explain where she got the taste for having big cats hanging around. A typical literary shorthand for decadent wealth has typically been to have rare animals on the premises, like big cats . . .

That was cool and all, but all I got from that was: I am Bruce Wayne, I PUNCH THROUGH BRICKS.

"Original Animated Movie"? No offense, but that's BS. "Mask of the Phantasm" was an original animated movie because it was NOT based on a comic... though come to think of it, did she every got into comics like Harley?
