Hi, friends! Do you like our new look? We might have undergone a makeover, but we're still going to be popping up as much as humanly possible to give you your daily round-up of stories, podcasts, videos and other things worth absorbing into your brainpan. If you have anything you'd like us to give a shoutout to, feel free to leave it in the comments or drop it our way on Twitter at @Syfyfangrrls.
- You'd better not be sick of the Wonder Woman hot takes, because I'm certainly not and I plan on continuing to share them. This week has blessed us twofold thus far, with two different pieces doing a deep-dive into some of the movie's most fascinating aspects:
If you're into the movie's action sequences, as well as how it deals with battlefield violence and the horrors of war, check out this piece over at Den of Geek.
If you're more about the movie's fun makeover montage and how its version compares to other classic makeover scenes in rom-coms, feast your eyes on this piece for ELLE.
- Don't ever let anyone tell you Twitter doesn't matter; The Handmaid's Tale showrunner Bruce Miller credits it with clueing him in to the intersectionality that the show had been lacking in its first season. (Inverse)
- Anyone who's been watching (and loving) American Gods as much as I am will also appreciate this Nerdist piece discussing the finale and how storylines for Bilquis and Easter have more parallels than we may have initially realized.
- Batman Returns celebrated its 25th anniversary yesterday, so feast your eyes on this reflection from some of its actors (which includes a lot of quality penguin-related content, natch). (THR)
BRB, I'm going to go mourn the Michelle Pfeiffer-as-Catwoman stand-alone we never got.
