Anne Hathaway would consider a “Catwoman” spinoff movie

If anyone was the MVP of “The Dark Knight Rises,” it’s got to be Anne Hathaway‘s Selina Kyle. The actress pulled off Catwoman with style and ease, and stole most scenes that she was in. That’s why it was only a matter of time before people started asking Hathaway about her interest in a standalone Catwoman movie.

“If [Christopher Nolan] is interested, then I’m very interested. I think it would be lovely to see more of her but only if it’s with the right people,” Hathaway told Digital Spy in a recent interview. “She lives in this Gotham City and so it would have to be established by the people who have made this Gotham City. For me, at least.”

If that’s the case, then this movie will likely never happen. When asked about the possibility of doing a Catwoman spinoff movie, Nolan said he is done with the Batman universe.

“Anne is incredibly precise and articulate about the psychology of the character. She’s really built it from the ground up. It’s just a delight to watch her perform. The things she does in those heels is not to be taken lightly. She’s an incredible character and we’re very excited to see her and hopefully we’ll leave people wanting more,” Nolan told Access Hollywood. “For me, Gotham and these characters, I’m done. I’ve told our story and I’m moving on. [But]I certainly think she deserves it, she’s incredible.”

With that being said, there is always the chance Nolan would choose to produce a future “Catwoman” film. He chose to produce Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” which helps keep him firmly rooted in the DC universe. Even if he doesn’t direct Hathaway in a spinoff movie, maybe having him involved as a producer would be enough to get her on board.

Then again, we aren’t quite sure Catwoman is the heroine this city needs right now, no matter how great she was in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Warner Bros. should back off the superhero genre for a bit while Marvel has its time in the sun, and approach it again later once the Marvel cinematic universe has run its course. Let’s face it: no one’s clamoring for a “Justice League” movie right now.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney To Host Spirit Awards

The Spirit Awards Air February 25 LIVE on IFC.

Posted by on

The 2017 Spirit Awards have finally found their frontmen: Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. And it’s no wonder. Just marvel in their splendid chemistry back when they appeared on Comedy Bang! Bang!:

The pair are prolific within the performing arts community: television (Kroll in The League and The Kroll Show, Mulaney as a writer of IFC’s own Documentary Now!), theater (including Broadway’s current Oh Hello Show), and stand-up comedy. In fact, it’s entirely possible that emceeing an awards show is one of the few remaining line items on their professional bucket lists.

It’s important to caveat this announcement, however. Unlike the bigger and more ubiquitously known awards shows, the Spirit Awards are not, well…boring. (We’re talking to you, Oscar.)

They’re funny. They’re honest. They have quality to match the red-carpet fanfare. And that’s alarmingly special. Last year’s show included some legitimately historic moments, like when transgender actress Mya Taylor won best supporting female, or Kate McKinnon’s hilarious and timely parody of Carol. See more highlights here to get the flavor of the Spirit Awards and read all about Film Independent to dig deeper.

The 2017 Spirit Awards air live February 25 at 5P ET exclusively on IFC.
