Okay, so the basic premise of the new Gotham tv-show sounds like endless foreplay with no pay-off, but they're doing teenage Catwoman.

How do I not watch that?

I finally finished season/series one of Luther.

When they said Catwoman/Batman dynamic, baby, they weren't kidding.

I'm attempting to clean up my desktop and I came across several half-written ficlets that I'm hoping to finish up and post this weekend. (Especially because one of them is Sif/Loki and I'm 90% sure that Thor 2 is going to ruin that pairing for me.)

The only finished one is this Bruce/Selina (probably because it's six sentences).

If you haven't seen this Catwoman/Batman short, you should totally check it out.

I recently watched the Batman: The Animated Series introductory episodes for Catwoman and some Catwoman comics (Anodyne 1-3) AND THEN the Catwoman scenes of The Dark Rises and it was a one-two-three punch of childhood nostalgia and fierce lady feelings and CATWOMAN, HOW AWESOME IS SHE?

Okay, the Catwoman issue I read was, QUITE LITERALLY, an entire issue about a morally ambiguous lady thinking about how to be a hero and be herself and realizing/owning the fact that the world is a murky place where good people do bad things. BE STILL MY HEART.

Also, I believe it was [ profile] mistaria who was talking about how much more palatable Batman is when he’s interacting with Catwoman, and it’s so damn true. That moment when Batman tells Selina she’s a good person at heart is a great Actual Hero Moment.

On that subject, the Animated Series:

I remember the first episode of this two parter really, really well from when I saw it as a child (a.k.a, all the stuff with Catwoman cutting glass with her claws and running across rooftops and flirting with Batman and showing up at charity galas looking fierce as fuck) but the ending of the two parter took me completely by surprise (although it retrospect, it shouldn’t have). Batman, how can you be Dating Catwoman when you’ve arrested her?

Catwoman: There’s something between us.
Batman: Yes. The law.
redbrunja: ..and your erection.

And Bruce saving the cat! Again, I’m having ‘you’re an actual hero!’ feelings. Like, I did not get ‘Batman would totally save me if I was in trouble!’ feelings pretty much ever in any of the Nolan movies or in any of the comics I’ve read recently, so it’s really different to watch the animated series and be like, ‘oh, okay, I would feel safer if this guy was looming over my crime-ridden city. (And I don’t think that’s a function of the different ages the animated series versus the movies are aimed at, I think it’s due to a difference in core aesthetic.)

(I should make a list: If I was in trouble in Gotham, who of the nominal white hats would I want to save me? Bruce would be last on that list. Probably it would go Catwoman, Stephanie, Jason. Jason’s ranking depends on whether or not I’d get to make out with him afterward.)

I said this after I first watched The Dark Knight Rises but I’ll say it again: goddamn, is Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman perfect.Read more... )
