CATWOMAN CATWOMAN CATWOMAN! NEW MOVIE!
NEW MOVIE WITH CATWOMAN!
When I was very small, a bunch of us neighbor friends would gather in someone’s house and watch in awe as Batman boldly fought off the Pengiun and the Iceman and whatever cunning villain was thrown at him and did all that dressed like an airborne mammal. And it was there that I was exposed to “Batman Returns" where I saw Michelle Pfeiffer’s catwoman role and after that discovery, I wanted to be Catwoman: pretty, resilient, cool outfit, feisty, got to be in the fight scenes, got to do stuff in the fight scenes, not one to let go of a grudge etc. This was a positive role model. But all my other friends disliked her because Catwoman was the villain in that movie. And do you know what?
THEY WERE WRONG.
While Batman swans around in his fancy cave being attended to by a butler, Catwoman gets pissed the f*ck off about workplace discrimination (and workplace secretary-tossing), trashes her apartment, then full-on starts whipping dudes in the face for picking on ladies. She has a strong stance on violence against women, Catwoman. Also, she apparently has a taser. CATWOMAN!
I then started reading comics borrowed from a friend, specifically because it was my understanding there might be Catwoman in them. Unfortunately, I soon found out that not every issue of “Batman” contained Catwoman, and they were actually about Mr. Morose Dude with all the cash, so, you know: sad emoticon.
And yes, there are things to say about Christopher Nolan, and the many ways he might ruin the Catwoman movie, but in the meantime:
CATWOMAN! CATWOMAN CATWOMAN! CATWOMAN MOVIE!
