"I'm a woman and can't be taken for granted. Life's a bitch, now so am I."
Robert Rodriguez made us wait an agonizingly long seven years before he felt that the script for the follow-up to Sin City was good enough to go into production, but the extra three months it took for him to choose the actress to play the femme fatale in the movie were almost unbearable. It was recently revealed that Eva Green has been selected to play Ava Lord in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, inspired casting that already has fans of the original movie and of the comic books created by Frank Miller salivating for opening day.
You can't have a great hero without a great villain. After all, it's the dastardly actions of the villains that provide the necessary obstacles for the heroes to overcome to achieve their greatness. But, just because a villain is evil to the core, that doesn't mean that she can't also be incredibly sexy. Help us choose the movies that have the hottest, the sexiest, the deadliest female villains.

Now that Marvel Studios' The Avengers has kicked The Dark Knight down a couple notches in box office rankings — besting the Bat for the top spot for midnight screenings with a take of $18.7 million and pushing The Dark Knight down to third place in highest-opening weekends — it would be understandable (if a little tacky) for Marvel Studios President of Production (and mastermind of the Marvel Cinematic Universe) Kevin Feige to crow about the accomplishment. But we're pretty sure he won't. Just a couple days before the theatrical opening of The Avengers in the States, Feige actually went out of his way to praise Christopher Nolan's revamp of the Batman franchise, calling it "the greatest thing that happened" to superhero movies because it "bolstered everything."
Before Nolan needed to save Batman from the creative black hole that the franchise plunged into when Joel Schumacher decided to introduce Bat-nipples and enough neon to make the Las Vegas Strip look classy, Tim Burton was considered the wunderkind of comic book movies. With Batman and its follow-up, Batman Returns, Burton helped to turn Batman into a cultural phenomenon (not many grown men would have been caught dead wearing Bat-symbol T-shirts in public before the movie) and made comic book movies a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. So what does Burton think of Nolan's Batman movies? If he appreciates them as much as Feige does, he's not saying. However, he does appear to be thankful that Nolan's Batman movies make his own Batman movies appear less "dark" by comparison. what did burton & Pfeiffer say and what's this about a Whedon Batman? >> Posted 05.07.12 by BrentJS
An interview io9 had with Marlon Wayans revealed that G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra wasn't the first comic book movie Wayans has been involved in, just the first one he was able to complete. Back in 1992, Wayans was cast as Robin for the sequel to Batman, only he was never used:
I was actually supposed to play Robin, in Batman Returns, about 15 years ago. But there was too many characters. I was cast, I was paid and everything. I still get residual checks. Tim Burton didn't wind up doing three, Joel Schumacher did it and he had a different vision for who Robin was. So he hired Chris O' Donnell.
Not that Wayans is at all bitter about it:
No, look — I get why they picked Chris O' Donnell, because it would be messed up to have Batman and you've got Robin, and his bulge is somewhat bigger than Batman's. Batman would have a serious problem with that.
Take that, O'Donnell! Little Man just owned you! In all seriousness, avoiding playing Robin, and eventually taking part in the embarrassing Batman And Robin, is a positive move, even for the guy from White Chicks. Posted 08.06.09 by Ryan
