Just to remind folks that while DC’s movie division might be run by a bowl of Jell-O, the cartoon division is still great, which they proved by premiering this upcoming DC Nation clip of Catwoman — a Catwoman, at least — running around in 1930s Shanghai. It’s bizarre, but it’s beautiful, and it’s pretty damn cool. Which is probably small consolation when Marvel has five or more major motion pictures coming out over the next three years, but it’s better than nothing. Barely. (Via io9)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
