The Batman: Villains Rumored to Be Catwoman and Penguin

John Saavedra May 18, 2019

Penguin and Catwoman, the dastardly duo from Batman Returns, could once again haunt the Dark Knight in The Batman.

Catwoman and the Penguin might not be done torturing the Bat. According to THR, director and co-writer Matt Reeves (War of the Planet of the Apes) is preparing to reunite this dastardly duo for The Batman, which reportedly features "around half-a-dozen villains."

Fans of Tim Burton's 1992 anti-consumerist Batflick, Batman Returns, will certainly remember the first time these two animal-themed baddies teamed up against the Caped Crusader. Not only is their turn as Bat-villains remembered for Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito's excellent performances, but for the much darker, more adult tone of their storylines. Let's just say, these two ruined a Happy Meal or two for the concerned parents of the early '90s. 

It's unclear if Penguin and Catwoman are set to team up again in

Batman Returns Returns? The Penguin & Catwoman Rumored To Face Robert Pattinson’s Batman

You might not have noticed, given that the character has featured in three other DC movies (plus three Lego animated films) and multiple TV shows (plus several others on the way in the next year or two), but we haven’t actually had a solo, non-Lego Batman movie since Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” seven years ago. But that’s going to change before long: Matt Reeves has been quietly beavering away on a rebooted version of the superhero franchise and it’s getting closer, with Thursday’s news that Robert Pattinson is in final talks to take on the Caped Crusader’s role.

‘The Batman’ Villains Revealed: Here’s Who Robert Pattinson Will Be Fighting

Now that Matt Reeves has found his Bruce Wayne in Robert Pattinson, done deal or not, the writer-director has turned his attention to The Batman's rogues gallery of villains, which will include the Penguin and Catwoman, according to the Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision newsletter. The Penguin and Catwoman were previously featured in Tim Burton's Batman Returns, where they were played by Danny DeVito and Michelle Pfeiffer, respectively. Two decades later, Anne Hathaway played Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, although the character was never referred to as "Catwoman." Instead, she was called either "…

Anne Hathaway Gets In "Shape"

From TorontoCatwoman.Com, take a look at new images, plus footage of actress Anne Hathaway ("The Dark Knight Rises") in the June 2019 issue of "Shape" magazine:

"Finding yourself takes as long as it takes," said Hathaway, "and I'm still in the process. It's not as if I'm sitting in the lotus position ready to dole out advice.

"Some days are still like, Whoa, I just fell off this cliff again! But learning how to be kind to yourself while you’re discovering who you are is something I wish for everybody.

"Not having all the answers, not knowing what to do, and making mistakes—those aren't reasons to beat yourself up....

"Before...I sensed this pressure to fill my schedule. If I wasn't working, I felt like I was wasting time. Now I know I have to build in breaks in my year, and there are times when I'm just

George Clooney Refuses to Recommend a New Batman After Bungling Batman and Robin

George Clooney Refuses to Recommend a New Batman After Bungling Batman and Robin
Hollywood star George Clooney feels he's not qualified to pick the next Bruce Wayne, poking fun at his own stint in the role for Batman & Robin. As of right now, Matt Reeves' The Batman is set to hit theaters in the summer of 2021, but no actor has officially signed on to take over the role from Ben Affleck. In Clooney's new interview, the subject of the movie came up, with the actor being asked to name someone he feels should be the next Bruce Wayne.

Pointing out the controversy associated with his own time as the Caped Crusader, George Clooney refused to list any suggestions, arguing he wasn't the best person to ask. "I'm not sure. I screwed it up so badly, I'm not allowed to weigh in on any of those subject matters anymore," Clooney says about casting the next Batman. He then jokes with Catch-22 co-star Christopher Abbot

Bo Report: Unhappy Easter for cinemas as the ‘Curse’ strikes

‘The Curse of the Weeping Woman’

New Line/DC Entertainment’s family superhero adventure Shazam! easily retained the top spot in its third weekend virtually by default.

One reason for the dreary Easter weekend trading: Distributors were unwilling to launch films for fear of being crushed by the Disney/Marvel juggernaut Avengers: End Game, which opens on Wednesday.

But an underlying factor is the generally lousy performance of Hollywood films this year. In the Us pundits described the Easter business as the worst since 2003. The Us box office for the year to date stands at $2.9 billion, down 16 per cent on 2018.

The only new wide release was the James Wan-produced horror pic The Curse of the Weeping Woman (aka The Curse of La Llorona), which opened at No. 1 in the Us but was a distant fifth here.

Bollywood romantic drama Kalank and Korean thriller Burning fared best among the specialty

Captain Marvel Is Now The 25th Highest Grossing Movie Of All Time

With Avengers: Endgame just a few days away from reaching cinemas, now feels like a good time to check back in with Captain Marvel, which is currently at the tail end of a triumphant run in theaters.

At the time of writing, the global gross of Carol Danvers’ solo debut sits at a hefty $1,089,526,133, having recently passed the $400 million mark domestically. These figures make Captain Marvel the 7th highest grossing film of the McU, falling behind only the three Avengers movies, Black Panther, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War. On top of that, the flick now stands as the 25th highest grossing feature of all time, just beating out The Dark Knight Rises over the weekend.

Interestingly, the movie’s last three days actually saw Captain Marvel do a little better domestically than it did on the weekend before, jumping up from $8.6 to $9.1 million. Perhaps filmgoers are keen

‘La Llorona’ Conjures $30M Overseas Bow; ‘Shazam!’ & ‘Dumbo’ cross $300M WW – International Box Office

  • Deadline
‘La Llorona’ Conjures $30M Overseas Bow; ‘Shazam!’ & ‘Dumbo’ cross $300M WW – International Box Office
Warner Bros/New Line’s James Wan-produced horror pic The Curse Of La Llorona haunted cinemas in 71 overseas markets this frame, opening to $30M at the international box office. Along with domestic, the global bow is $56.5M.

In many countries, the Easter weekend is bracketed by days off on the Friday and/or Monday, and Llorona, with its Catholic iconography, tapped into that. Latin America leans into horror and this film, with Mexican folklore at its center, was No. 1 in the region where it is tracking above The Conjuring (+11%), Halloween (+30%), A Quiet Place (+60%) and Lights Out (+95%). Mexico leads all play at $5.3M while Europe and parts of Asia had decent starts; Brazil was slightly soft with the market dominated by family fare and the faith-based Breakthrough.

The thriftily-priced $9M La Llorona still has Japan and the UK to come. Too bad it didn’t release

Mueller Report: Edgar Wright Calls Donald Trump the C-Word After President’s Reaction

Mueller Report: Edgar Wright Calls Donald Trump the C-Word After President’s Reaction
Edgar Wright sent an incendiary message to Donald Trump after the president again used the “Game of Thrones” font to make a political statement on social media. Responding to the Mueller Report, Trump released an image of himself with the accompanying text: “No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left democrats…Game Over.”

The response from Wright was short and blunt: “What a c*nt.” Within an hour, the filmmaker’s reaction earned over 6,000 likes on Twitter. Wright has used social media in the past to speak out against Trump but has never used such strong language. While the word is very much a slur in America (just ask Samantha Bee), it’s less so in Wright’s home country of England.

As for Trump, the Mueller reaction image is just the latest example of the president turning to HBO’s fantasy series “Game of Thrones” in

  • HeyUGuys
To celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Batman, Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy will be heading to London’s BFI IMAX in the 70mm format.

10 Best Villain Actors Working in Hollywood Today

Tom Beasley on the 10 best villain actors working in Hollywood today…

Ask most actors what kind of role they like playing the most and they’ll tell you that they love having the opportunity to play a full-throttle, moustache-twirling villain. The old adage that bad guys have more fun is definitely true on the big screen, where it’s good to be bad on just about every level.

But not all screen baddies are created equal. There are some actors seemingly born to play the worst possible specimens of humankind – and indeed alienkind – in movies. With that in mind, Hollywood seems to have a travelling rep company of actors who can knock even the most generic of villainous roles out of the park with ease.

In that vein, let’s take a look at the 10 best villain actors in today’s movie world.

Link Tank: Why Iron Man Should Die In Avengers: Endgame

Spencer Mullen Apr 11, 2019

Avengers: Endgame, Jeff Bezos, Julian Assange, and more in today's daily Link Tank!

Elon Musk and 2020 Presidential candidate Andrew Yang discussed automation on Twitter.

"In an interaction on Wednesday that only be described as “a lot of tweet,” 2020 long-shot presidential hopeful Andrew Yang, who has made thwarting automation-related job displacement the focal point of his campaign, and Elon Musk exchanged ideas on Twitter about our soon-to-be-reality with A.I. technology. The first tweet, posted by Yang on Wednesday evening, detailed a recent competition held in China that pitted an A.I. system, BioMind A.I., against radiologists in a brain-tumor-diagnosing race. In both rounds, the A.I. system beat trained human professionals in both speed and accuracy. If you just thought, “Oh, yikes,” then you and Yang are very much on the same page."

Why is Donald Trump obsessed with Bane in The Dark Knight Rises?

Is this supervillain the kind of role model we expect the Us president to adopt?

There are many superheroes an ailing American president might choose to associate with in an effort to pick up some much needed kudos. Frank Miller’s seminal graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns features a version of Superman who is in thrall to Ronald Reagan. In the film Iron Man 3, the fictional President Matthew Ellis is protected by Don Cheadle’s stars and stripes-sporting Iron Patriot. There’s even a version of the Avengers in Marvel comics that was put together by George W Bush.

With so many virtuous options available to him, it seems bizarre that Donald Trump has chosen the Batman supervillain Bane to cosy up to. Observers first noticed Trump’s fascination with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, in which Tom Hardy’s hulking, masked brute seizes Gotham, when

Trump Campaign Clip Using Dark Knight Rises Score Shut Down by Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. has succeeded in having Donald Trump take down a campaign video featuring music from The Dark Knight Rises. Warner Bros. demanded Trump take down the video or be slapped with legal action as soon as they became aware of the unlawful use of Hans Zimmer's "Why Do We Fall?" from the soundtrack of the final installment in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. The video in question was basically a trailer for the president's 2020 reelection campaign and gained over a million views.

The video was quickly shared and the Donald Trump fan base ate it up. Warner Bros. issued a copyright claim on Donald Trump's campaign video and either Twitter or the president took down the video with The Dark Knight Rises score. However, before it was taken down, the studio released a statement in regard to the video and copyright claim. Warner Bros. had this to say.

Someone really should make sure President Donald Trump doesn’t use copywritten material for his own marketing. After an issue with HBO late last year, where the Potus used “Game of Thrones” imagery for a poster about issuing sanctions, Trump has now pissed off Warner Bros. after he used “The Dark Knight Rises” to promote his own re-election campaign.
