In nerdbastards compendium of Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man news we got two brief updates.

As you all know, Anne Hathaway was cast as Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman, in Christopher Nolan’s TDKR,. While I have been too busy fantasizing about tongue punching her fart box, other fans were wondering if we might actually get to see Hathaway in the Catwoman costume, or if she would appear as Selina Kyle only. Recently on Oprah ( I kinda want to have sex with the bags under her eyes and maybe her arm fat) Hathaway actually referred to her role in the “Catwoman” sense. She doesn’t say much, but it is the first time anyone associated with the movie has used the name.

How she’ll play into the Nolan’s Batman narrative still remains a mystery. Villain? Love interest? We dunno. With a mighty filled cast –Christian Bale obviously as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred,  Joseph Gordon-Levitt in an Unknown role.- there is fear that Nolan might be biting off more than he can chew. For the final film in his trilogy the story and it’s characters better be goddamn good. Time will tell, but in Nolan we trust.

Now, in what seems to be one of the number one movies to have spy photos constantly leaking from set, comes more photos of Spider-Man in costume, from Marc Webb’s upcoming Amazing Spider-Man. These photos of Andrew Garfield in costume don’t show much. Just Spider-Man being held at gun point as well as web head sportin’ some over costume clothing. Sweat pants and serial killer jacket.


spidermansetphotosI still dunno how I feel about the costume. I think I like it. I dig the eyes, the spider on the chest and the dark muscular highlights. It’s dark and kinda grungy. Oh and I like how web shooters are involved this time (not pictured), as opposed to the organic ones in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films.

I’m not fan of the lack of defined webbing throughout the suit. Those gloves are hideous. The red spiraling off like that is awful. Oh, and you can’t see it in the photos above, but he has these really dumb silver trimmings on hist boots.

Eh, I’m sure it will look good on screen.
