Batman #32: Selina Kyle says YES to Bruce Wayne's marriage proposal
22 December 2017
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!!!
New standalone film
The Conquest of Batman is currently in preproduction. A sort of "prequel" to Carrie's World, this fan film is scheduled to be produced either in Boston or Providence, RI. A casting call is under way.
Conquest, as it is developing, represents a major starting point for future productions. Like Frank Miller's The Dark Knight, it deals with an older Bruce Wayne. Like the 1966 Batman series and the 1970s Batman comic, we have some of the colorful characters from there. But the production has its own values. And its aim is to basically be a variant of the 1966 series, but go in its own direction, with a 21st Century sensibility.

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!!!
