Things We Saw Today: A Justice League of Their Own Is Our New Favorite Mash-Up

Recommended Videos

Illustrator Kate Willært created some amazing mash-ups of the Justice League and the 1992 movie A League of Their Own for HalloweenCostumes.com.

You can see baseball cards for the individual players, including Dottie “Wonder Woman” Hinson and Doris “Batwoman” Murphy, at HalloweenCostumes.com. Willært’s reimagining also improves on the original film by including Mamie “Cyborg” Johnson, a mashup of the Justice League’s Cyborg and Mamie “Peanut” Johnson, a black woman pitcher who tried out for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League but was turned down because of her race. (via Nerdist)

And if this art made you think of DC Comics’ Bombshells series, there’s a reason…

  • The Beat has some Canadian small press and indie comics to recommend for Canada Day! The nation-state of Canada turns 150 today, though the First Nations have been around for much, much longer.
  • Fox has scheduled several more release dates for as-yet-unannounced, Marvel-based movies. Your guesses are as good as mine. (via Deadline)
  • This was a big week for Star Wars paraphernalia sold at auction. Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber (used by Mark Hamill in both A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back) sold for $450,000, while an original R2-D2 unit sold for nearly $3 million.  (via The Hollywood Reporter)
  • After the new season of The X-Files took some much-deserved heat for its all-male writers’ room, Buzzfeed reporter Susan Cheng asked a woman from the original series’ writers’ room for insights. Kim Newton, who wrote for the show from 1995 to 1996, described a team that consisted of experienced male writers, who had job stability, and a rotating cast of new, young female writers who rarely stayed on for more than a year. She also said, “I don’t know whether [X-Files creator] Chris [Carter] has ever felt comfortable in his approach to dealing with female writers.” It’s a fascinating read that gets at the uncomfortably unspoken ways that sexism plays out in television.
