Subtle curves, agreed, but Id still call her slim as opposed to vOLuptUOUs. Athletically built.

Wow, Scruff, I DIDN'T know that. Cool. I'll shell out for 2hrs. of Catwoman any day, but it should still contain the gritty drama of a good crime movie. It WOULD be set in Gotham, Im assuming???
I guess only time will tell. Definite potential......

NO! I hate Halle Berry! Ever since those two hit-and-runs. Anyone who won't even leave a note doesn't deserve an Oscar, in my opinion. Not to mention that whiny, crying acceptance speech. No, I hold grudges over seemingly unimportant things like that. Really, I start hating people when they get over-exposed. Last year you couldn't fart without hearing "Halle Bery" and I really never saw what the big deal was.

Give me Ashley Judd anyday.

For anyone interested - the Latest News:


(reported on Cinecon.com) SuperheroHype (http://www.superherohype.com) has translated an interview with French director Pitof, who is attached to helm Warner Bros.' "Catwoman" movie. Halle Berry is attached to star, replacing a role once occupied by Ashley Judd.

"The idea is to develop this character in a relatively realistic world la Spider-Man," he said. "We'll probably set it in the near future but in a North American urban setting, which is more classic. The main idea is to develop a female superhero and give her depth not to make her a bimbo or a sexy vigilante. She's a woman's hero for women."

"There will be no direct link with Batman, nor will there be Batman-esque imagery and it won't be set in Gotham City. The story will be different and the costume will be different. We aren't keeping anything from Catwoman except the original idea: the character. The idea is to begin her story from scratch, and possibly begin a franchise."

Well, we have our first picture of Halle Berry in the Catwoman costume. And can I say, I'm utterly horrified beyond belief. Good going Halle, you're managing to destroy a DC character just as well as you did Storm for Marvel. :eek:

FIRST PICTURE OF CATWOMAN!!
Source: TIME magazine Monday, September 29, 2003

The new issue of TIME magazine has a first look at Halle Berry in her Catwoman costume. Here's the picture followed by the article. Thanks to 'Hmmm...' for the heads up.

The cat is finally out of the bag. HALLE BERRY slinks into a strapping new ensemble this week when filming starts in Vancouver for Catwoman. The Oscar-winning actress plays the Felonious Feline (see also: Princess of Plunder, Mistress of Malevolence) from the Batman series, a role made famous by Eartha Kitt in the '60s TV show and reinvented by a neoprene-clad Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992. Berry's leather cat suit for the 2004 film is "very bare, very urban, very downtown," she says. Her character, Patience Price, is a scientist at a cosmetics company who transforms into Catwoman or should we say Sex Kitten?--to take on her nefarious boss, played by Sharon Stone. Benjamin Bratt as a detective is the love interest for Berry's Catwoman, who is both villainess and heroine. "She's not Superman," Berry says. "She's not trying to save the world." Instead, like a pampered house pet, Berry says, "Catwoman is out to save herself." Could be quite a purr-formance.

Wow, I hate Catwoman and all, but that's one funny as hell pic. I won't blame Halle for ruining Catwoman, though, since I'm sure they're are quite a few other people responsible for that costume. DC characters, when will you be given justice? Smallville, Batman Forever on, the later Superman pics, and now this Catwoman movie. Again, what the heck is going on with those properties and why can't people get them right? David Goyer took a bad comic character and made him into a successful movie series, yet so many people can't take already successful comic properties and translate them into good ideas?!

Actually, DC is owned outright by Warner Brothers, and they actually have very little control over the film versions of their own characters - exactly why they have such a hard time getting these projects together, and getting them done right. I'm sure DC would love to actually be in control of these things - I'm certain they'd give Marvel a serious run for their money if they did! ;)

Don't give up on Supes just yet either - there are MAJOR creative shakeups in store for the Man of Steel this coming year, what with Jim Lee and Jeph Loeb taking over the main book, and a host of top notch writers and artists for the rest of the titles!
By the way, there are actually a good number of great books coming out of DC of late (a lot more than Marvel has goin' for 'em!). Might I recommend the following for a great read: JSA, Batman, Flash, Gotham Central, Green Arrow, Dr. Fate, Fables, Wildcats 3.0, Hawkman, Teen Titans, Outsiders, Sleeper, Empire, Legion, Superman: Birthright, Brids of Prey, Greg Rucka's new Wonder Woman just started up and should be great, Formerly Known as the Justice League, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell, H-E-R-O, and Superman/Batman. :happy:

A bit more info on the movie. It gets worse with every piece of info that comes out. It's sad that they couldn't even use Bastet, an actual Egyptian Cat Goddess. :rolleyes: :p

"Patience Price, a mild mannered graphic artist, is murdered in order to keep her silent about an accidental discovery she has made. An ancient myth is played out when an Egyptian Mao cat, indebted to Patience for saving its own life, breathes life back into the young woman. Patience is reborn with an independent attitude, carefree behavior and the heightened senses of a cat. Now she must investigate the circumstances behind her murder and learn to accept both parts of herself."

Oops, I actually meant to say that it'll be Brian Azzarello writing Supes as opposed to Loeb. Should be just as good, if not better, though! Loeb actually wrote Superman for a few years or so just recently to good effect though.

By the way, I've actually been enjoying the new Aquaman also! I've loved all of the new elements Rick Veitch has brought to the mythos. Although, the most recent issues have been a bit out there. Also, while it's made for some pretty good reading, I'm not so sure it was wise for him to have taken just about Aquaman's only serious adversary - Black Manta - and rehabilitated him. Afterall, a good hero is made by his villains, and Aquaman has always had so precious few.

More terrible news from the bastard daugher of a Catwoman film. From Superhero Hype:

A VERY interesting scoop for you today. I'm working on the set of Catwoman in Vancouver, and we've just recieved the shooting details for the near future, for pre-prep work. There are a couple things that are very interesting:

1). Hedare Cosmetics has a funny connection to Bruce Wayne. It seems he was trying to close the company down, but it didn't happen (I'm not sure on the specifics). Laurel Hedare & Bruce Wayne are two very rich people, apparently. While Bruce doesn't make an appearance, his name IS quoted by Laurel herself: Laurel is played by Sharon Stone. And to clear up rumors she has been wonderful on set.

2). Halle Berry's Catwoman suit has gone through minor changes, though nothing too drastic...there's still the mask, though it looks much better than the photo WB released. I still don't understand why they released that, but the mask has been slightly modified from the version in that photo. The costuming wasn't completely talored-fit for Halle.

3). Catwoman does a LOT of scratching.

Also, WB previously requested to see some 'very' rough footage of a few things that have been previously shot. They are being very supportive, yet careful of this project, and are working closely w/ the production. We sent them over a 15 minute reel of footage, and they gave us the thumbs up.

Tippet Studios has announced that they have been hired by Warner Bros. to create one of the upcoming movie's most complicated effects a photorealistic CGI cat that can somehow mystically communicate with Halle Berry's title character. The order from Warner Bros. is that this mystic CGI animal needs to look completely realistic when surrounded by other cats.

I've always found it odd that, in terms of quality and performance of the movies and overall comic sales, Marvel constantly kicks DC's butt. This in spite of the fact that Superman and Batman are more recognizable than just about any character or icon.

I really hope Catwoman bombs miserably, and Punisher, Spidey 2, and Fantastic Four all end up in the top ten overall ticket sales for 2004. Maybe that will finally be DC's wake up call.

If DC looked at Marvel's success and did films right, we'd already have new films for Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Flash, Green Lantern, and Sandman, and we'd be anxiously awaiting some sequels to those, along with Shazam, JLA, Huntress, Ambush Bug, and New Gods.

And what was the last DC movie? Was it Steel? or Batman and Robin? :eek:

That was kinda my point. In the time since their last craptacular "film," Marvel's put out adaptations of the following that range from above average to perfect:
X-Men (twice)
Blade (twice)
Spider-Man (soon to be twice)
Daredevil
Hulk
The Punisher
Nick Fury (okay, admittedly, this one looked like it sucked)
Fantastic Four (soon)
Iron Man (soon)
Iron Fist (soon)
Ghost Rider (soon)

Not only that, but until recently, nearly everyone would say that the best comic film of all time would be Superman, Superman II, or Batman. I think most folks now would say Spider-Man or X2.

Kidhuman
02-03-2004, 02:53 PM
I agree with you on that one. I never thjought Superman was the best comic adaption really. Just when it was the only one out there, but it had nothing to compare it to. Right now I would say that Spider-Man is the best adaption yet. It followed the storyline near perfectly. The first Batman rocked. The second one was ok, and after that.....too bad they suck. I havent seen X2 yet, but X-men was decent. Havent seen the Hulk either and doubt i want to. Daredevil was decent, accept for Affleck. Colin Farrel took that movie over IMO.

But who knows, maybe this Catwoman movie will make me change my mind...................

Sorry for missing the Salem thing, JJB. Just the thought of that fake thing makes me laugh, and to think something like him will be included in a big release movie! CGI or puppet is not really my problem with it. It's the whole idea behind it. It just does not seem like an idea that translates well to film, to have a cat "mystically" communicate with Catwoman.

Now I want to see the film just to see how bad it turns out.

The problem is not with DC, I assure you. I'm certain those fine folks would love to actually have control over the film versions of their characters, and I'm certain that if they did, they'd put Marvel to shame. No, the problem lies in the fact that control of DC's characters lies firmly in the hands of Warner Brothers. Only they could take a character who's been one of the world's most recognizeable and successful public icons for the better part of a century (Superman or Batman) and not be able to cobble together a halfway decent film adaptation.

Saw this at SHH:

'Imax expects to roll out "Catwoman", which stars Halle Berry, in July, following its June release of "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban."

It also hopes to reformat "Polar Express," an animated film about a boy who takes a train ride to the North Pole, in time for the 2004 holiday season, although it's still in discussions with Warner.

"The outlook for 2004 look reasonable. 'Catwoman' could play pretty well. Now the next question is, will consumers pay the premium?" said McAlpine.'


Yay! Now we can all witness this abomination on the big screen! I believe that IMAX posted losses for last year; they're not really on the right track if they're going to bring flicks like "Catwoman." :D

The problem is that they actually do think people are going to want to see this junk. Otherwise it wouldn't have got made in the first place, let alone adapted for the IMAX format. :crazed:

The thing that bugs me most about this movie is that I'm pretty sure it'll effectively make Catwoman off limits for the new, ultra cool Batman series they're about to get started. If the movie sucks like we all know it will and it tanks at the box office, Christopher Nolan (assuming he'll decide to take on the sequel) isn't going to want to touch the character and will want to distance his project from this crap as much as possible. If, through some miracle of happenstance, it actually turns a buck - the studio will want to keep the character separate from Batman to further develop it on it's own (which would actually be a good thing as I'd much rather they not soil the Batman mythos with the horror that is the Halle Berry, Patience Price: Catwoman). Either way, we've already lost. :mad:

More horrible news about Catwoman. I really wish that Halle would just shut her piehole. She really makes the movie sound even worse, everytime she opens her piehole. :crazed: :p

"First of all, she's a totally different character. Her name is Patience Philips, not Selina Kyle, which lets fans know that the film is going to be entirely seperate from BATMAN RETURNS. The biggest difference is that this is Catwoman's film. She's the hero and she doesn't have to rely on Batman or anyone else..."

"The costume tells you a lot about the character. Patience is murdered and resurrected by an Egyptian Mao cat, and then Patience becomes a cat and is in conflict between her human self and her cat self... the costume reflects that."

"No, this isn't about Batman. We're telling fans that we're starting brand new with CATWOMAN. The thing about her is that she's so independent, she doesn't need a man to take care of her."

First of all, she's a totally different character. Her name is Patience Philips, not Selina Kyle, which lets fans know that the film is going to be entirely seperate from BATMAN RETURNS.

Uhh...what fans? I have personally never met nor heard of any Patience Philips fans. :confused: :stupid:

More like conflict between her clothed self and her naked self. Plus, how tough can she be if she gets murdered by a frikkin' cat? :rolleyes:

I don't think she gets murdered by the cat. Her quote just runs together.

"Patience is murdered and resurrected by an Egyptian Mao cat"

Meaning someone kills her. And then she's resurrected by Salem from Sabrina. ;) :D

Well I've been subjected to this trailer during the previews of the last 2 movies I've seen and it is painful. I even have a free ticket to see the film that I got when I purchased Batman TAS Vol.1 on DVD last week and I'm not going to use it. Anyone who wants it PM me and I'll send it to you for free. It's valid for one admission up to $12. Seriously don't hesitate to ask, I won't be using it.

Good points! As bad as I'm sure it is, I might take the bullet and go see this. If nothing else it'll set a new "low" by which other "bad" movies may actually look good. But you know, it'll take quite an effort to beat "Batman and Robin." I managed to remain in my seat for that POS so Catwoman can't possibly be that bad, can it? :cry:

I ahven't really been following this movie, but a friend at work said it got good reviews. Having heard it doesn't follow the comics, I said I didn't think it would do well. So we made 2 bets: 1. He said it would open at #1. I said it wouldn't even beat Spider-Man, so that was the second bet.

Driving home on Sunset tonight, we spotted the premiere of Catwoman at the Cinerama Dome (where the lesser-quality movies go for their hollywood premieres). There was a TON of press there though lining the temporarily red-carpeted sidewalk, shooting pictures of what was essentially nothing happening yet, and a bunch of people across the street yelling and cheering and holding signs asking for autographs & stuff. Are people really that excited about this catbox reject, or is WB just shelling out more dough to try and get as many suckers as possible into the theaters on opening weekend?

This movie should stay in the liter for awhile to ferment.

If you love Madonna esque exploitation this one will be the one for you!

I keep hissing every time I think of this film.

I shoot a lot of these things. Though I couldn't make it to the Catwoman event, it isn't unusual for crowds to form just because it's a premiere. It doesn't really matter what it's about, those people just want to see movie stars. Oh well. Everybody needs a hobby. ;)

I've driven by a LOT of premieres at the Dome, this is easily the biggest crowd I've seen for a movie that looks THIS bad, and probably the biggest crowd there for a premiere since the Arclight was built.

What do you/they do with the footage of these premiere crowds, sell 'em like AP footage, put them into TV ads for the film, laugh and point at all the morons who don't even get to see the film that day? ;)


Oh, and BTW, how much of your favorite star can you see from across 6 lanes of the street, 4 of which are moving traffic and the other 2 are the backs of reporters?

Most of us shooting a premiere concentrate on the red carpet. Occasionally we might use the crowd for something to pan off from, but that's about it.

As far as what they can see...who knows. People do all sorts of strange things just so they can tell their friends later that they were there or whatever. You should've seen the crowd for Tomb Raider. I swear to god I had no idea that Jolie had such a huge lesbian following until that night. (And damn, she looked supremely hot as well. Even my straight girl friends made it clear that they would turn lesbo for a night...) Celebrity is a strange thing indeed.... :ermm:

not me, but when i saw spiderman, people were commenting how "cool" catwoman looked in the preview and seemed excited about the movie. :confused:

i'm betting it will make $35-40 million it's opening weekend. :eek: i've been seeing a ton of commercials for this film.

what's its release date, this Friday? I bet you're right about it making that much, possibly even more, since any geek worth his weight in comic books that would keep his friends from going will likely be at the SDCC. ;)

The film has a mega-low rating on IMDB already, but I bet that'll change when those wacky few who love it start voting. Sadly, there seems to be a few folks who will love even this.

I just saw this and felt compelled to say so. :D

Don't worry, it was a free ticket.

With that in mind, ya know, for what it was, it wasn't a bad film. Sure, it definitely had it's :rolleyes: moments, but that was expected. For that matter, just about everytime I caught myself doing :rolleyes: (save for one at the end), I remembered that I did that at just about every other comicbook adaptation movie I've seen. Usually it's those hokey comicbook superhero moments that really come off as silly when you see a real human being doing it. For this, it was the "purring" and "hissing" from Hallie that honestly looked goofy. I'm not quite sure how she did it with a straight face. The beginning with her playing the shy demure wallflower didn't work for me either. Seriously, Hallie Berry as a chick that can't get a date? :rolleyes: C'mon. Try as she might, that bit o' personality was probably the worst part of the movie. The superhero-tranformation scenes are always pretty goofy too, and the Catwoman switch has never been immune from that. Though I will say that this beat the hell out of the Michelle Pfeiffer version. Plus, once Hallie gets into that getup, Yoww Momma! She really does look good. Who cares about the practicality of the suit. I mean, if we're gonna talk about that, let's start with the Xmen and move on from there.

And despite early warnings about them changing the "character," I found myself really admiring how they dealt with creating a "new" Catwoman. It really is rather interesting and opens the door for a really cool sequel down the road. Think "Pride of Catwoman." Oooh, I like that. Better write it down. No, I am serious! :sur:

On the whole, it was a moderately enjoyable film. Not great, lagged in places, some corny superhero-type stuff, but not a waste of time or anything. Your basic Saturday matinee "let's have fun" kind of flick. Don't expect Oscars but don't believe that it's the worst thing out there. I'd gladly sit through Catwoman 10 times for every one that I'd be subjected to The Phantom Menace.

Nobody else felt the need to bring up that 64% drop in box office from opening weekend to the next (which was what, only just above the 17 million mark anyway)? Have we all decided that this one is official the steaming pile of crap we all knew it would be and it's time to put this baby to rest? Hate to say we told ya so Hollywood, but...oh who am I kidding - we're all loving to say we told ya so! :D

I agree. It seems like Warner Brothers will not learn their lesson. The last two Batman films practically ruined the franchise and now Catwoman. We can only hope that the new Batman movie for next summer will not be a disappointment. I seriously wonder who is running things over there. To be honest I think that studios should take polls on a website to see what the fans want and who they think would be good in the roles. And they should also have a comic book expert used on each movie. Heck they use historians and dialecticians and all kinds of stuff for movies, so why don't they use a comic book expert. It just doesn't make sense. The comic book films that seem to do really well have all had directors who were fans of the comics and who pretty much remain true to the comics.
