Wonder Woman debuts in theaters this week and is already stockpiling rave reviews. It’s being lauded not just as the best film in the DCEU, (since that’s no big compliment), but as a truly great achievement in comic book superhero filmmaking. Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot in the titular role, the film is looking to break the box office and become a monument to feminism in film. I guess since we now have such lofty expectations for Wonder Woman, it makes sense for the gang at Screen Junkies to go back to a far darker time where women heroes were subjected to the dirt worst in screenwriting, filmmaking, just everything… this week’s Honest Trailer is Catwoman; yeah, that Catwoman.
Imagine your favorite comic book, movie, and fairy tale heroes and villains if they existed during the Renaissance. What might a painted portrait of them from those times have looked like?
Wonder no more. Photographer Sacha Goldberger was part of an event in Paris recently where these iconic characters—including Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, The Hulk, Darth Vader, Catwoman, Princess Leia, Joker, Superman, Snow White, and others—were photographed with a decidedly old school look to them, creating a fascinating set of Renaissance painting-style cosplay images.
You can check out a bunch of the images below to see how some of your favorites would have looked in a different time.
Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, has always been one of the sexier characters to inhabit the Batman universe, and artists never miss an opportunity to take full advantage of her skin-tight catsuit. However, it appears that in early issues of the Catwoman relaunch as part of The New 52, things may have finally gone too far.
In the abandoned storyline, Kyle comes to the conclusion that Batman and Bruce Wayne are the same person by comparing their kisses. The next thing she does is the only logical thing – she zips over to Wayne Manor and proceeds to strip naked on the lawn while Bruce and Alfred look on via surveillance cameras. Only a few strategically placed panels on the pages keep the book from having be kept behind the comic store counter.

The scariest thing for any nerd/geek/fanatic for anything relating to entertainment is the looming darkness of what we call, “SPOILERS.” Spoilers are a terrifying thing that can take away all of the excitement in a simple phrase – “No, I am your father,” “Bruce Willis was dead THE ENTIRE TIME!” “Superman is Clark Kent,” all of these phrases have struck terror into our hearts, because after we searched our hearts, we knew them to be true.
This article, however, consists of nothing that is true. This is a list of fake spoilers. So, are you ready for Top 20 Fake Spoilers For The Dark Knight Rises!? Woo boy!
