Sexism within the world of television and film has been around since the industry first began, but recently it has risen in the media to generate some much needed discussion. In particular, the way women are treated in Hollywood has become a hot-button subject. During a panel at Dallas Comic Con this last week, Katee Sackhoff and Jamie Bamber took some time to put in their two cents regarding sexism in the industry.

It’s confirmed, my friends:
The Holy Grail of Nerd Cinema….the team-up we always thought would remain the province of comics, cartoons, and video games–but would NEVER actually happen in the movies–is upon us!
There will be a Superman/Batman movie in 2015! Creatively titled: Batman Vs. Superman, it’s apparently the sequel to the recently released Supes reboot Man Of Steel. That means Henry Cavil will once again be donning the red and blue super-suit….

If you’ve never heard of him, don’t worry–it just means you have enough self-respect to avoid MTV’s Teen Wolf series.
I honestly don’t know jack about this guy….maybe he’s brilliant–maybe he’ll be the best Batman since Michael Keaton. Anything’s possible….
Until an actor is officially announced, we will continue to do what nerds always do, and yammer on about our dream choices to portray the “World’s Greatest Detective”.
Here’s ten we think would do nicely:
Former Buffy/Angel star Alyson Hannigan tweeted that her husband, Buffy co-star Alexis Denisof, “is shooting his first day of Dollhouse right now!” That makes Denisof the latest member of the Joss Whedon troupe who will make an appearance in the second season of the Fox series, joining Firefly‘s Summer Glau.
Slashfilm reports that Jamie Bamber, who played Lee Adama in BSG, will be showing up as a character “heavily involved” in an engagement. Michael Hogan (Col. Tigh) will be appearing in the second episode of the season.
