The Reel Deel - Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

See, this is the problem with Warner Bros. and their cinematic adaptations of their DC Comics properties. Lack of consistency. After Thursday’s lackluster reveal of Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Warner Bros. needed something to get back in the game. They pulled it off with the first glimpse of Anne Hathaway in her [...]

For those who’re interested, care, or for the uninitiated, I’ve been off trying to balance finding a way to make money and developing my first feature film. That’s coming okay, and I’m gaining more and more [...]
