"The Conquest of Batman," our third fan film, has begun production!
5 March 2018
The Conquest of Batman is now officially in production.
Filming began on Sunday, 25 February 2018 in Natick. Herb Fuchs and Maureen Vlaco, who play Boston newscasters, did their scenes. Main filming is tentatively scheduled for 18-19 March in Boston and Natick, MA; and Warwick, RI. The roles of Molly Post and Diana Prince still need to be filled, but we are working on this. The 17-minute film is scheduled for release sometime in April 2018.
Ironically, this is something of a mirror of what is currently happening with the Batman comic, in which Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are engaged. We'll know what happens by the middle of the year, when Batman #50 is released. Note the article below, which first went up in December 2017.
Wedding bells?!? After 77 years …
Batman #32: Selina Kyle says YES to Bruce Wayne's marriage proposal
The flagship Batman comic made news in October, when it was revealed in issue #32, that Selina Kyle, the Catwoman herself, agreed to marry Bruce Wayne, the Batman himself! This is a relationship that has existed, as it were for 77 years. While a version of Batman had the two as husband and wife, this marks the first time the mainstream comic has approached this topic. How this will proceed is anyone's guess, but it is still fun to see. It may have an impact on our planned fan film and fan series as well.
What makes this more interesting is that Batman Annual #2 also explores matrimony between Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne. In this comic, Bruce Wayne dies—not from Bane or some other costumed villain, but his No. 1 adversary: Old age. Find out more here.
And Batman issue #37, released on 20 December, has Batman and Catwoman on a double date with Superman and Lois Lane. Definitely worth a read!!!

HAPPY 75TH ANNIVERSARY!!!
Catwoman made her debuted on 22 May 1940, in Batman #1. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1940, cat burglar Selina Kyle was inspired by Hedy Lamarr, as well as Jean Harlow and Finger's cousin Ruth Steele. Selina's relationship with Batman has often been both adversarial and romantic, their paths crossing on the Gotham City rooftops at night.
Catwoman remained an important figure in the Batman universe until 1954, when a moral crackdown on comic books led to her temporary end; she was replaced by Batwoman in 1956. The Feline Fatale made her return in early 1966, first with a mention in the Zelda The Great episode of the 1966 Batman series, then followed by a 16-17 March 1966 appearance on that show. Portrayed by Julie Newmar, the character became a sensation, and would reappear in the comics that fall—in a Lois Lane issue, dated November.
Since then, Catwoman has been an important player, and a most fascinating one at that!!!
