Michelle Pfeiffer’s advice for Zoe Kravitz is similar to the advice that The Dark Knight trilogy star Christian Bale gave to Ben Affleck when he was cast as Batman. During the 2015 Hall H presentation in San Diego Comic-Con for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck recalled receiving Christian Bale’s advice regarding the suit and how he would be able to use the bathroom given the structure of the Batsuit. Hopefully, Zoe Kravitz won’t have this struggle in the Catwoman suit.
Michelle Pfeiffer portrayed Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns (1992) opposite Michael Keaton’s Batman. Michelle Pfeiffer’s portrayal of Catwoman is widely considered to be iconic amongst critics and fans alike, with many lauding the chemistry she shared with Michael Keaton’s Caped Crusader.
Since then, Catwoman has been portrayed on the big screen multiple times. Halle Berry played a version of the character in Catwoman (2004), which was universally panned by critics and audiences alike. Anne Hathaway played Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises, for which she received critical acclaim.
This won’t be the first time that Zoe Kravitz plays Catwoman. The actress voiced Catwoman in The LEGO Batman Movie and is now making the jump from animation to live-action as the newest incarnation of one of Batman’s most beloved characters.
