Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman

In terms of superhero movies, does it get any better than Michelle Pfeiffer‘s performance as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Batman Returns?

Big Kevin Smith Project

Kevin Smith has a career that spans movies, television comics, books and podcasts. He began with the breakout indie hit Clerks, and expanded that into his own little cinematic universe called The View Askewniverse, which includes movies like Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks II. In recent years he’s expanded into the world of thrillers and horror with Red State, Tusk and Yoga Hosers.

Outside of directing movies, he’s dabbled in comic books with story arcs for Daredevil, Green Arrow and Batman. And more recently he’s been playing in the DC Comics Arrowverse on television by directing episodes of The Flash and Supergirl. He’s also discussed all of these experiences in Hollywood and more in several books and podcasts over the years. But now he’s teasing something much bigger. Read More »
