See What The Batman’s Zoe Kravitz Could Look Like As Catwoman

For a few years, it looks like The Batman was never going to happen. The upcoming blockbuster sat in development hell for years, losing first a director and then star in Ben Affleck. But Matt Reeves took over to helm the project, and he’s finally begun assembling his cast and crew. The Planet of the Apes director is looking for some A-List talent to popular Gotham City, with Robert Pattinson making his debut as Batman alongside Jeffrey Wright, Paul Dano, and Zoe Kravitz. Kravitz’ debut as Catwoman is one of the most hotly anticipated aspects of the upcoming blockbuster, and now we have an idea of what the Big Little Lies alum might look like as Selina Kyle.

Catwoman has been adapted in live-action a number of times throughout the years, notably by Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway. Zoe Kravitz is the latest actress to portray Selina Kyle, which is all the more powerful as a woman of color who was previously denied the ability to join the Batman universe due to the color of her skin. Take a look at what she might look like in full costume below.

I don’t know about you miss kitty, but I feel so much yummier. Zoe Kravitz looks absolutely killer as Catwoman, in a costume that resembles the character’s recent appearance on the comics (which you can read up on here.)

This fan image comes to us from ScreenRant, and actually featured a few different possible designs for Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman. Matt Reeves’ plans for the character and her costume are currently a mystery, but you can see how badass Kravitz might look like in full Catwoman gear. She’s got the character’s ears and goggles, and wielding Catwoman’s signature whip. Is it 2021 yet?

Zoe Kravitz has shown her ability to act earnestly in fantasy series, so she’s a great choice to play Selina Kyle in the DC Extended Universe. She had a supporting role in George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, and recently played Leta Lestrange in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. And now she’ll join the DCEU like Big Little Lies co-star Nicole Kidman and her stepfather Jason Momoa.

I’m interested to see how Selina Kyle factors into the story of The Batman, and what her relationship with Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne might be like. The dynamic between Catwoman and Batman is a fascinating one. On any given day they can be enemies, allies, or romantic interests. Matt Reeves will introduce a new Batman to the shared universe, and therefore can make whatever storytelling choices he wants regarding the Dark Knight, and the various rogues who will join him on this highly anticipated adventure.

Since Anne Hathaway recently played Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 hit The Dark Knight Rises, Matt Reeves will likely want to separate Zoe Kravitz’ version of the character from her predecessor. Nolan made her an adept thief, but she didn’t wield a whip or have the character’s gymnastic and hand-to-hand abilities. Fingers crossed that Zoe Kravitz’ version is a closer adaptation from the comics, both in her skills and interpersonal relationships.

It will also be fascinating to see how the characters introduced in The Batman factor into the larger shared universe, and if they end up crossing over with other characters and franchises. Gotham City is becoming a major setting in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey, with characters like Huntress, Black Canary, and Renee Montoya joining the likes of Harley Quinn.

The Batman is currently set to arrive in theaters on June 25th, 2021. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.

That Time Bombshell’s Nicole Kidman Didn’t Even Recognize Charlize Theron As Megyn Kelly

Charlize Theron underwent an uncanny makeover for her new film, Bombshell. And her metamorphosis into former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly was so effective that she even fooled her co-star Nicole Kidman when they were making the film. In fact, during a recent interview, Theron told the full story about the snafu.

Charlize Theron revealed this behind-the-scenes tidbit to ET News‘ Nischelle Turner on the red carpet of the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards. She made it clear that despite the initial confusion, there’s no bad blood between the two actresses. In fact, after years of admiring Nicole Kidman’s own Oscar-caliber performances, Theron was thrilled to finally work with her on Bombshell. She also mentioned they had been “trying to make a movie for so long.”

It’s a wonder Charlize Theron was able to recognize Nicole Kidman, either. The Aquaman actress looks equally convincing as Kelly’s former Fox News coworker Gretchen Carlson. While Bombshell is their first movie together, it’s not the first time either actress has undergone dramatic physical transformations for a role. Charlize Theron shaved her head for Mad Max: Fury Road and took home an Academy Award after she made herself virtually unrecognizable for her Oscar-winning turn as Monster’s Aileen Wuornos. And Nicole Kidman donned a prosthetic nose to resemble author Virginia Woolf for her own Oscar-winning performance in The Hours.

This time around, both Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron play real women who should be familiar to viewers who’ve turned on a television in the last five years. If you haven’t taken a look at these transformations yet, be sure to do so below.

Bombshell follows the behind-the-scenes drama surrounding Gretchen Carlson’s 2016 lawsuit against Fox News and the allegations she, and other employees, made regarding the network’s CEO Roger Ailes (played by a prosthetically-enhanced John Lithgow). Charlize Theron’s Megyn Kelly is embroiled in her own scandal after a moment between herself and then-presidential-candidate Donald Trump goes viral. Birds of Prey’s Margot Robbie is one of the only Bombshell stars who actually looks like herself – but plays a composite character who’s stuck in the middle of the power play between Fox’s newsroom and boardroom.

Early reactions to the film have been positive, and not just because of its A-list stars’ makeovers. Even though the events that inspired Bombshell have long since faded from the headlines, both its players and their #MeToo experiences are still very relevant to the news cycle. Bombshell hits theaters nationwide on Dec. 20, 2019.

How To See Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep Over A Week Early

Stephen King fans have had plenty to be thankful for this year with the remake of Pet Sematary, the huge release of IT Chapter Two and the recent debut of In the Tall Grass on Netflix. The year’s not over though and Doctor Sleep, the sequel to arguably the most iconic Stephen King adaptation, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, arrives in November. But now Stephen King fans have the chance to see Doctor Sleep over a week early.

Doctor Sleep doesn’t release wide domestically until November 8, but Warner Bros. is teaming up with online ticketing service Fandango to offer audiences a chance to see the film early on October 30. That’s nine days prior to the film’s official release date, so Stephen King fans and horror fans in general can be some of the first people to experience this anticipated horror event film. Here’s how you can see Doctor Sleep on October 30.

The early access screenings for Doctor Sleep are exclusive to Fandango VIP members. Fortunately, even if you aren’t a member already, Fandango’s rewards program is free-to-join, so you can sign up for Fandango VIP right away and gain access to the advance screenings of Doctor Sleep.

Fandango VIP members will be able to see Doctor Sleep early at about 400 theaters nationwide, including the big three chains of AMC Theatres, Regal Cinemas and Cinemark, as well as Marcus Theatres, Harkins Theatres and others. Tickets are available starting today so you can check theater availability and get yours by visiting Fandango now.

This is just the latest advance screening Fandango has hosted this year after How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, The Secret Life of Pets 2, Shazam! and Rocketman. In a press release, Fandango President Paul Yanover said that the goal of these early access screenings is to turn these movies into events and for horror fans and fans of Stephen King, Doctor Sleep should certainly fall into that category.

One thing that is really cool, beyond just getting to see an anticipated movie early, is that Fandango’s early access screenings of Doctor Sleep are at the end of October, just in time for Halloween. We traditionally associate horror movies with the month of October but if you look at the calendar, there isn’t really much this month for horror fans that is actually intended to scare.

The Addams Family is for kids and while Maleficent could have been a scary character, that’s not the direction Disney went for its live-action adaptation. The only real wide release horror movie in October is Zombieland: Double Tap and that’s a horror-comedy. So it’ll be great for people who want to actually get scared to see an R-rated, and pretty long, Stephen King adaptation from Gerald’s Game and The Haunting of Hill House’s Mike Flanagan right before Halloween.

Doctor Sleep is based on the 2013 novel by Stephen King and will serve as a sequel to both the 1980 adaptation of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick, as well as Stephen King’s original novel. It stars Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and Kyliegh Curran and tells the story of a grown up Danny Torrance who meets a young girl with powers similar to his own.

Doctor Sleep opens in wide release on November 8. Check out our 2019 Release Schedule to keep track of all of this fall’s biggest movies.

Missy Elliott Has A House Made Of Hair In Mind-Blowing ‘DripDemeanor’ Video

At this point, what words can be used to describe the MTV Video Vanguard Award-winning-Missy Elliott and her music? Creative, imaginative, and legendary, are too easy, much too normal. She’s constantly pushing the envelope with each song and video, always coming from the left field no matter where she starts at. She opens a portal to a mysterious new dimension in her new video for “DripDemeanor.” There, the weirdest fashion is the coolest, and clones of Missy are normal. It’s quite the experience that should only be watched if you’re familiar with the unfamiliar.

“DripDemeaor” features vocalist Sum1 who joins Missy in this darkly psychedelic trip. In large Mad-Max like post-apocalyptic outfits, but black, Missy and Sum1 lead a group of dancers in an intimate routine. The sensual jam propels the sexy video that finds power in eccentricity. The next scene involves alien-like style in a dark parking garage that looks unlike anything in our dimension. Clones of Missy are situated around nearby steps for a creepy look at time travel. It gets weirder from there. Sum1 takes refuge in a house inside of Missy’s hair while she sings and, then, at the end, Teyana Taylor plays a museum guide teaching a kid about Missy’s brilliance. There’s a “To be continued” sign at the end, so, presumably, this thread will be picked up again next time.

Missy performed songs like “Lose Control” and “Work It” at the 2019 VMAs during her career-spanning set before accepting the Video Vanguard Award. In August, she dropped the nostalgic video for “Throw It Back.”

Watch the video for “DripDemeanor” up above.

The Batman Has Found Its Riddler

One thing that’s been clear since the beginning of the year is that The Batman is going to be stacked with villains. Among the antagonists who’s been reported to show up is Edward Nygma, a.k.a. The Riddler, and news has broke that There Will Be Blood’s Paul Dano is being lined up for the role.

The latest word on The Batman front is that Paul Dano is in negotiations to play the Caped Crusader’s question-mark-obsessed foe. If a deal is reached, Dano would be the second actor to be cast as an adversary in The Batman, following behind Zoë Kravitz, who’s bringing Catwoman to life.

The Hollywood Reporter also mentioned in its write-up that rather than go by his traditional civilian identity, Edward Nygma (sometimes spelled as ‘Nigma’), The Batman’s version of The Riddler will be named Edward Nashton, an identity that’s been used by writers in more modern Batman comic book stories. Beyond that, there are no details about what we can expect from this version of The Riddler yet.

Best Pearl Nail Art Ideas for 2019

If you’ve been keeping an eye on street style, chances are you’ve noticed that pearls are having a moment. While a string of pearls have long held a connotation for being stuffy, the new crop of accessories, often featuring single irregular-shaped pearls, are more Carrie Bradshaw than Charlotte York.

Oversized pearl earrings have been spotted recently on both Zendaya and Gigi Hadid, and Ashley Graham is a fan of pearl pendants. But it’s in the beauty sphere where pearls are really making an unexpected appearance—it’s impossible to scroll through Instagram without seeing a pearl hair clip, arguably the must-have accessory of the season, or headband, and now the trend has evolved into pearl nail art.

Think about it: Pearls are the perfect accent. They’re not as expected as diamonds, yet add a cool touch without being too flashy. And, like a French manicure mirrors the 2000s nostalgia movement in fashion, pearl manis are directly inspired by what’s happening in our jewelry boxes. The look is also surprisingly versatile, go for a single stone if you’re a minimalist, or go all the way with gem-encrusted nails on all five fingers. “Adding small pearl is easy, and you don’t need to be very savvy with a paint brush,” says nail artist Betina Goldstein, whose renditions of pearl nail art ideas have racked up thousands of likes on Instagram. “It allows you to play with color, design, or gems without overwhelming your look or hands.”

While the trend is probably easier to get if you take a photo into the salon, if you want to go the DIY route, Goldstein has some advice. “Start by painting your nails with a sheer nude like Essie in Gossamer Garments, then apply nail glue on your nail, where you want the gem to go,” she says, adding that tweezers make it easier to have full control over where you’re placing your pearls. “Cap it by applying more glue on top and then paint over it with a top coat to ensure the pearls don’t get caught in your hair.” Another helpful tip? Look for flat-back pearls (which you can buy as stickers or craft supplies on Amazon), since they’ll stay put on your nail better.

Scroll on for some of our favorite takes on the trend.

One of the more simple (but still undoubtedly cool) pearl nail art options is a single stone near the base of your nails. Use a neutral like Chanel’s Ballerina for the most effortless look.

Pair a color-blocked mani with studs for double the fun.

Up the ante of a pearl mani with different-sized embellishments.

Play up the pearls with dotted tips and combine two trends in one.

Tiny pearls are even cooler in unnatural colors.

This mani magically looks both over-the-top and effortless at the same time.

At Adeam’s Spring 2020 show, nail artist Mei Kawajiri paired pearls with “water drops.” This might be a bit much to request at the salon, but it sure makes for great eye candy.

Get in on two trends at once with a pearl French mani. This one was created by adding tiny stones to Kiss press-ons.

A sprinkle of diamonds raises the glam factor up a notch.

Elevate a nude mani with a few randomly placed pearls.

Pearls look equally as cool with something colorful, like cheeky cherries.

A bright red background and gold studs pull pearls out of the minimal category.

Chains and long tips make for a mani fit for a queen, or a pop princess.

Decorate your cuticles with a strand of pearls (try these from Amazon).

Game Of Thrones’ Kit Harington Knows Exactly What Harry Potter Character He’d Like To Play

It’s almost hard to believe, but it’s been a number of months since Game of Thrones concluded. HBO’s fantasy drama was a pop culture phenomenon over its eight season on the air, making the starring cast household names in the process. Kit Harington is a prime example of this, as fans really responded to Jon Snow’s journey through Westeros. Harington will make his Marvel debut with The Eternals, but he recently revealed the Harry Potter character he’d be interested in playing: Severus Snape.

Kit Harington has already played one beloved literary underdog, and it looks like he would be down to play Snape if he got the chance. While the role was played to perfection by the late Alan Rickman throughout the Harry Potter franchise, but the Fantastic Beasts are a prequel that has already included Dumbledore and McGonagall. At a recent convention appearance, Harrington was asked which character from the Wizarding World he’d like to play, and he quickly answered Snape. The 32 year-old actor went on to explain his love for Hogwarts’ Potions Master, saying:

Jon Snow ain’t wrong. Snape is one of the most dynamic characters to come from the Harry Potter franchise, and the audience’s perspective of the tragic figure changes throughout the years, especially in The Deathly Hallows. And that’s exactly why Kit Harington would love to dive into the character in a prequel movie– if the opportunity ever presented itself.

Kit Harington’s recent comments at ACE Comic Con (via Winter is Coming) are sure to excite fans of both Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. Harington is a super popular actors, and his followers would be thrilled to see him in another iconic fantasy series. The Harry Potter franchise only continues to grow, with J.K. Rowling expanding the Wizarding World in the Fantastic Beats movies, Cursed Child plays, Pottermore, and Universal’s theme parks. Harington potentially joining is exciting enough, let alone as a beloved figure like Severus Snape.

Of course, Kit Harington was only mentioning his favorite character, and isn’t actually up for any role that. The Fantastic Beasts movies are set decades before the events of the Wizarding War, and Harry Potter’s time in Hogwarts. But as time continues moving forward, we move closer and closer to Snape’s own time at Hogwarts, and his unrequited love of Lilly Potter.

Luckily for fans of the Jon Snow actor, he’s got another huge role coming up, this time on the big screen. Kit Harington will play Black Knight aka Dane Whitman , a sword-wielding superhero. He’ll be able to use certain talents he picked up in Westeros, while also creating a wholly new character alongside a killer cast, and within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Eternals will hit theaters on November 6, 2020. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.

Logan’s James Mangold Still Wants To Do His X-23 Movie

Director James Mangold’s first film since his 2017 Oscar-nominated X-Men movie Logan arrives next month in the form of Ford v Ferrari. Although he’s moved on to auto racing, that doesn’t mean that James Mangold is writing off mutants for good. In fact, James Mangold still wants to do his X-23 movie. When asked about the possibility the Logan director said:

James Mangold is still interested in returning to the world of mutants to write and direct the X-23 movie. A spinoff film featuring the young mutant seemed to be a real possibility, and a major fan hope, following the success of Logan and Dafne Keen’s breakout turn as Laura. At the time James Mangold said that there had been discussions about it and it seems that his interest in the project has not waned in the ensuing years, even though he’s moved on to new things.

So the acclaimed director is still down to do the movie if the opportunity arises. Interest only goes so far though, and despite the fact that he still wants to do X-23, James Mangold admitted to The Playlist that he doesn’t think it will happen. He’s clearly not working on it now and even if it does happen in the future, it won’t be anytime soon.

Under different circumstances, a successful and Oscar-nominated comic book movie with a breakout turn from a young actress would be a no-brainer to get a spinoff film. James Mangold even knew what the film would be about. However, while James Mangold did not cite this explicitly, the fallout of Disney purchase of 21st Century Fox makes X-23 unlikely.

Alongside other X-Men movies that were in the works including Gambit and X-Force, X-23 doesn’t seem like it is going to happen, another casualty of the Disney-Fox deal. At this point it looks like only Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool will make the jump to Marvel and everything else has been scrapped. Sadly, that means James Mangold’s X-23 as well.

We know that the mutants will be coming to the MCU eventually, Kevin Feige confirmed as much at Comic-Con, but when is an open question and given their absence on the Phase 4 slate, it seems like it will be Phase 5 or later (2022 and beyond) before we see them. Even then we don’t know if X-23 will be brought in or if Marvel Studios will recast Wolverine or both.

Still, if the MCU doesn’t have an X-23 movie and recasts the character or even if Laura doesn’t wind up in the MCU at all, Marvel Studios would do well to bring James Mangold into the fold to direct a Marvel movie. He’s an acclaimed director who delivered the best Wolverine movie we could hope for and he obviously cares about these characters. As such, bringing him in to do something in the MCU, even if it isn’t X-23, would be a smart move.

For now, James Mangold could be racing towards some major Oscar nominations for his racing drama Ford v Ferrari, in theaters on November 15. And you can see X-23 herself, Dafne Keen starring in HBO’s His Dark Materials, premiering on November 4. For all the biggest movies heading to theaters this year, check out our 2019 Release Schedule.

Jay And Silent Bob Reboot Included Matt Damon’s Dogma Character, Even Though Kevin Smith Doesn’t Own The Rights

Kevin Smith’s new movie, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, is, like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back before it, largely a love letter to the fans of Smith’s View Askewnaverse movies and characters. If you’ve been a Kevin Smith fan since Clerks then you’ll recognize many of the actors, and the characters they play, when they return after a long hiatus.

A couple of the returns have been quite surprising. Nobody really expected Ben Affleck to come back, and seeing him in the first trailer was quite a surprise, but another big surprise was seeing Matt Damon appear as the character Loki from Smith’s movie Dogma. The surprise there comes from the fact that Smith doesn’t technically have the rights to the Loki character.

The Loki character appears briefly in the new film in a scene that was apparently inserted during post-production. Kevin Smith told Business Insider that Damon was unavailable during filming, but didn’t want to be left out of the fun…

Initially, Smith says his plan was for Matt Damon to play himself, as he had done in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, but Smith’s wife pushed him to use the character of Loki, Damon’s fallen angel character from Dogma.

Except, there’s a problem with that. Most of Smith’s movies back in those days were produced by Miramax, and Smith was able to get permission from Miramax to use all the characters the studio had the rights to. However, Dogma is a special case. The rights to that movie are actually owned personally by the former head of Miramax, Harvey Weinstein.

Miramax used to be owned by Disney, and the Mouse House wasn’t thrilled with the idea of making a movie that focused on a woman who worked in an abortion clinic fighting angels, and so declined to produce Dogma. Weinstein decided to buy the rights to the movie himself, and he produced the movie through Lionsgate.

Weinstein still owns the rights, which puts inserting the character into the movie into a legally grey area, but Smith says that he still feels some sense of ownership having created the character, and that including Loki is the right thing to do.

It seems unlikely Kevin Smith will have much problem with putting Loki in the movie. As Smith says, he’s not selling the film on the character he doesn’t own, so there isn’t much argument for a financial loss. On top of that Harvey Weinstein is a bit busy with other more pressing concerns right now.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot can be seen in theaters tonight as part of a Fathom event, before the movie goes on a roadshow.
