10 Actresses Who Could Play Catwoman In The DC Extended Universe

Previous1 of 11

Catwoman DC ComicsCatwoman. One of Batman’s most iconic enemies and also his most famous romantic partner. A character that walks the line between hero and villain, and one that sooner or later audiences should expect to see again on the big screen. Be it in The Batman, Gotham City Sirens, Nightwing, Batgirl or even Suicide Squad 2, it will soon be time to introduce this master thief to the DC Extended Universe. This is a major role and one that, rightful so, will be a big feature in the universe. Casting her will be extremely difficult.

Taking on the role of Catwoman is tricky. The actress who accepts the role will be following in the footsteps of Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway and Camren Bicondova. It will be a difficult task for any actress, so why not pick an experienced one with years of work under her belt?

Hollywood’s system of phasing out actress as leading romantic roles once they reach a certain age is extremely troubling. Not only do men age but continue to get starring roles, it enforces the idea that women are only valued based on their age. There are plenty of amazing actresses out there in their 40s and early 50s who still have what it takes and should be considered for more work. Their time is not up. So the caveat is that the actress playing Catwoman should be around the same age as the actor playing Batman, and the Caped Crusader at the moment is Ben Affleck. Catwoman is Batman’s equal and should be his same age. The last thing we need to see is a 45-year-old Batman alongside a 20-year-old Catwoman.

Take a look as we pick ten actresses who could play Catwoman in the DC Extended Universe. Click Next to get started.

  • Brandon Ortiz Muñoz

    Eiza González?

  • Mit Hsur

    Thandie Newton

  • Jason

    Masiela Lusha

  • nelson

    Eva Green is my top choice

  • Sarcasm Implied

    Kate B would be my preference.

    Priyanka Chopra would be ideal as Talia

  • Josh Sanchez

    Just throwing this out there… Monica belluci also I think Chopra would be better for Talia Al Ghul which would allow them them to bring in Damian Wayne

  • Angelina Jolie used to dominate this list. She’d still crush this role.

  • Maxi Iroh

    Kate Beckinsale or Eva Green

  • Paul Malrose

    Please don’t race swap her.

    • Her whiteness isn’t tied to her character. Catwoman wasn’t a godawful 4 time Razzie Winning movie because Halle Berry portrayed her and was black it was terrible for other reasons. I think the problem would be that whoever was Cat Woman needs to have an American accent.

    • Clay Strohman

      She was portrayed as being mixed in Year One and it was solid. We just want a great actress who can pull off thre persona

  • Nina

    Priyanka Chopra all day every day. Look at her. Jungle cat, spell-binding, what.

  • Shuja inayat Shah

    I think whoever they cast should be younger, its a franchise thing. Actress should be around 30 year mark, not 40, you need a lot of stunts and should look almost the same and be physically the same after 15 years, some of above actresses will be 60 after 15 years, don’t think there is a 60 year old cat woman thingie

  • Sooreeadeerujha

    eva green’s always been my ideal catwoman..ever since the batbale days…
    i want patton for something else..she wouldve made a much better wonder woman than gadot tho….

  • Nell

    I love the idea of Carla Gungino. Rashida Jones is also on my list. For those saying Catwoman has to be played by a 30 y/o, don’t forget that middle aged Paul Rudd was cast as Antman without anyone objecting

  • Wade Aiken

    Catherine Zeta-Jones

  • Maxi Iroh

    Would also add to the list Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ana de Armas and Eiza González.

  • Glory

    Fans are the worst casting directors.

  • Your #1 choice for an incredibly physical role is a great actress who is in her late forties.

    • Assuming you have the same age range as Batman you’d need a physical yet older actress like Charlize Theron.

  • JNAZ

    Priyanka Chopra is intriguing.

  • NikkiLuck

    Anybody else feel like Olivia Munn could be a great Selina Kyle, or is it just me? Lol
