Comics On TV: 'Batman '66'
MTV News - over 4 years
by Ryan Rigley "I am vengeance. I am the night. I am... Ben Affleck." That's right, folks. Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have officially announced who our next Dark Knight will be and it's neither Josh Brolin nor Ryan Gosling. Apparently, Oscar-winning director Ben Affleck has officially signed a multi-film deal with Warner Bros., meaning he'll play the Caped Crusader in the next few Batman films— including Snyder's "Superman vs. Batman" and the highly-anticipated "Justice League." So far, reactions to Affleck's new role have been pretty mixed with several online petitions being made to recast the Dark Knight. Lest we forget, there have already been a few different interpretations of Batman throughout the years, including Adam West's Batusi-doing do-gooder. Speaking of which, here's a look back on the super campy, yet super awesome "Batman" TV series from the 60's.

C2E2 2013 recap: Comics, costumes and cosmic bliss
Chicago Times - almost 5 years
The Boy Wonder folded his hands before him on the table and waited for the next question. It was one of those archetypal comic book convention moments, the kind you can picture even if you've never come within 100 miles of a comic book convention. Burt Ward, now in his late 60s and beach-ball round, sat beside Julie Newmar, now in her late 70s and flightily casting her hands about as if impersonating Kristen Wiig's impersonations of an aging diva. TV's Robin and Catwoman from the camp 1960s “Batman” sat side by side, fielding questions (Batman — Adam West, now in his 80s — canceled abruptly, citing a back injury).

Whoopi Goldberg Debuts Film About Iconic Lesbian Comedian At Tribeca Film Festival
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Whoopi Goldberg recently made her directorial debut at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. Her groundbreaking documentary, "I Got Somethin' To Tell You," is about the life of African-American and openly lesbian stand-up comic Moms Mabley, born Loretta Mary Aiken. The North Carolina-born comedian graced stages such as New York City's Apollo Theatre and Carnegie Hall with her quirky acts touching on racism and romance between the 1920s and 1960s. Mabley came out in her late twenties and often made her sexuality a part of her routines. She appeared in the 1933 film "The Emperor Jones" alongside Paul Robeson, which was inducted into the Library Of Congress' National Film Registry Library in 1999. Her wardrobe in the film was markedly androgynous, an unusual sight on a woman in the 1930s. She was also referenced in the 1995 queer favorite "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar," starring Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo. As AfterEllen.com no...

President Obama's 'Dark Knight Rises' Review: It's All About Anne Hathaway
MTV News - over 5 years
If you, like me, thought Anne Hathaway was the best part of "The Dark Knight Rises," you're not the only one. In fact, you're in very good company indeed: none other than the President of the United States counts himself among the big Selina Kyle fans. Earlier this week at a Connecticut fundraiser hosted by Harvey Weinstein, President Obama gave his brief, to-the-point review of "Rises," singling out Hathaway's performance as the movie's highlight. "She's spectacular," he said, according to Deadline. "I got a chance to see Batman, and she was the best thing in it. That's just my personal opinion." Obama's personal opinion is one that many filmgoers share. Not only did Hathaway's Selina rank number one on our list of the greatest "Dark Knight Rises" characters (and number two overall of the "Dark Knight" trilogy's rogues), but reviewers have been especially kind towards the actress' work in the Christopher Nolan directed picture. "As Selina Kyle – the film never refers to h...

Blatant Insubordination: Pixies, Moo Moos and Catwoman
Primary Ignition - almost 6 years
By Rob Siebert Editor, Fanboy Wonder I’m going to jump around in this one, do some quick hits. But before I do… 1. Hairy Fairy Does everybody know what a “pixie haircut” is? I didn’t until yesterday. I heard the term on the radio, and then I happened to stumble across a story on Once Upon a Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin, who apparently has one. This label makes no sense to me, possibly because I’m not well versed in either fairies or women’s hair. But it sparked the following text message conversation with my girlfriend… “Do you know what a pixie haircut is?” “Um, yes.” “I’d never heard that term until today. Can pixies not have long hair? Is that in the dress code?” “It would get in the way of the wings.” “Are the wings sticky or something? How would long hair hinder fairy flight?” “When was the last time you tried to fly?” “Literally or figuratively?” “Both.” “Baby, I fly every time we have intellectually stimulating conversation like this.” 2. Okay, Rapidfire Time… — S...
