The latest photos of Zoe Kravitz from The Batman‘s United Kingdom set show off a clear reference to Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman.

After fans recently got a look at The Batman cast filming a somber funeral scene in the U.K. many spotted an obvious homage to Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman in Zoe Kravitz’s stunning outfit. The star had previously opened up about her outfit in the Robert Pattinson film, explaining that she worked alongside Matt Reeves and the costume designer on the film to piece together her Catwoman look. But even when Kravitz isn’t suited up as Catwoman, her wardrobe has a subtle reference to a previous cinematic version of Selina Kyle.

The similarity between Zoe Kravitz and Michelle Pfeiffer was spotted by @SelinaMovieNews on Twitter, who pointed out that Kravitz’s new boots are undeniably similar to those worn by Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. The heeled boots in the 1991 film aren’t as shiny as the ones spotted on The Batman set, but the design is clearly a nod to the previous Selina Kyle. Take a look at the comparison photos below.

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under wraps, but we know that the project will revolve around Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector. The Batman will also feature the hero making use of his detective skills more than what we’ve seen before in previous iterations of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment to a new Batman trilogy with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding Zoe Kravitz, Michelle Pfeiffer and the Batman universe, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content.
