Do Your Favorite Movies Pass the Bechdel Test?

Rating: 1/3

This film gets pretty close. Selina (y’know, Catwoman) has an accomplice that she has conversations with, but that character is never explicitly named. Miranda, the other named woman, doesn’t converse with Selina. Again, not a shocker, as this is another superhero movie centering on a male character.
