DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Some Familiar Faces in Injustice: Gods Among Us

I’ve stayed far away from this comic given its first arc was basically an ad for Maytag. But as the comic has gone on its premise of an out-of-continuity, multiworld comic (as opposed to the New 52 multiworld, incontinuity comic) has let us see some characters eliminated in the latter.

I mentioned last week that Oracle has shown up in the digital comic penned by Tom Taylor’and that certainly intrigued me. So his Tweet suggesting there was more in chapter 6 made me slap down my $.99.

And I was happy I did. (Spoilers for those who haven’t read it)!

Here’s Your “Gotham” Catwoman

Fox’s Gotham has released an “official” image of their 14 year old Selina Kyle as played by Camren Bicondova and here it is:

Perhaps, as this is set in the past, she is a Madonna fan? I do like the two buildings giving her “cats ears”

Gotham Casts its Young Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle

Fox’s Gotham announced the casting of two characters that were long rumored for the hour drama - a young, pre-Batman Bruce Wayne and a young Selina Kyle.

Thirteen year old David Mazouz who has appeared on Fox’s Touch will play the emerging hero. Fourteen year Carmen Bicondova, who is new to acting but an accomplished dancer who has appeared on “America’s Best Dance Crew”, will play the orphaned Selina Kyle.

Bicondova reminds me of a young Michelle Pfeiffer in that head shot. In an interview a few years back she was asked if she were a superhero what power she would have and said “reading people’s minds.”

The leaked script for the pilot includes Renee Montoya - I’m waiting for casting of that character to be announced.

So what do you think of the casting so far? Do you like the idea of Bruce and Selina knowing each other as kids?

What an interesting piece. Catwoman drawn on an official Marvel layout page. I’ve never seen this before. Could this have been done for the long overdue Batman: Europa?
