Catwoman Selina Kyle on film
A guide to the different films
Catwoman has enchanted television and movie viewers since she first appeared on the Batman TV series on 17-18 March 1966. By that time, Lee Meriwether was on her way to appear as the Feline Fatale in the 1966 Batman movie. In the 1970s and '80s, her appearance was restricted to Saturday morning cartoons. Michelle Pfeiffer rectified this in 1992 with her powerful performance in Batman Returns.
Since then, her comic book popularity has fueled numerous appearances in cartoons, in the 2004 Catwoman movie and in an increasing number of independent fan films. Catfan's Feline Fatale Follies wants to chronice each production involving Catwoman.
That said, we are continuing to add to the features on this site. Notice, for example, the episodes of Catwoman: The Diamond Exchange that we are offering.
Additionally, this site, through Frontenac Media, is producing its own fan productions: Batman 1969
, released in July 2011, and Carrie's World
, now in the planning stages.
Fan Films: An increasingly important creative outlet
Electronics and computer technology have enabled filmmakers to produce movies in ways unimaginable even back in the early 1980s. For example, the overlay effects used in Batman that were so incredibly expensive can now be done very cheaply.
Furthermore, because of comic fans’ discontent with Hollywood and the demand for more film productions involving their favourite heroes, independent filmmakers have been producing fan films. The quality varies, and sometimes greatly.
However, we applaud their efforts, and encourage them.
