My thoughts… Finally! Catwoman gets a little (more) respect in fan filmdom! I’m very excited to see Catwoman: Retribution in the fall as well as the short film’s full trailer in the summer! Does it matter that the actress playing Selina Kyle/Catwoman is Asian? No. I’m not a comic book traditionalist. Well, I’m not a staunch traditionalist. I think Selina Kyle should have short dark hair. That’s it. Mae Claire meets that specification. Oh, and Selina Kyle should be sexy. Mae Claire is that, too. I also think that Catwoman should wear a full cowl and tinted goggles. Mae Claire’s Catwoman meets that specification for me as well. Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman [in The Dark Knight Rises (2012)] did not. Her Catwoman didn’t even have short hair. And it wasn’t dark enough. The look of Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman is a big fail for me. However, I really liked African American actress Sharon Ann as Catwoman in Imagination Upgraded’s Harley Quinn – Web Series (here)! Anyway, I’m looking forward to Catwoman: Retribution. I just hope it’s not too short!
