The new Batman movie means new Bruce Wayne, new Alfred, new Gordon, and new Catwoman. Matt Reeves’ The Batman was released in theaters last Thursday and it looks like fans cannot praise it enough. The newest DC movie currently holds 90% of the audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 8.7 rating on IMDb, and that’s only from the audience.
Robert Pattinson debuted as Caped Crusader, and Zoë Kravitz was introduced as the newest live-action Catwoman. Michelle Pfeiffer played the character in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns, Halle Berry played the character in 2004’s Catwoman (although that incarnation wasn’t Selina Kyle, and the movie was a huge critical and commercial flop), and Anne Hathaway played the character in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
Ten years after the last Batman solo movie, Matt Reeves’s The Batman has finally hit theaters, and it introduced Zoë Kravitz as the newest Selina Kyle/Catwoman. Kravitz shared a new post on Instagram where we can see her trying out the Catwoman mask, and former Catwoman stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry commented on the post, expressing their excitement to see Kravitz in the role they once played. Pfeiffer wrote a series of emojis, including heart and fire, while Berry wrote: “yasssssss!!! can’t wait… meow!”
Robert Pattinson surely has a long future as Batman in front of him, and the director is already teasing on what the inevitable sequel could be about. It’s safe to say that The Batman isn’t the only time we’re going to see Zoe’s Catwoman as well. Kravitz teased that the movie will be sort of an origin story for her Catwoman, so there’s still that full potential of her character to be explored.
Co-written and directed by Matt Reeves, and starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell, The Batman now plays in theaters.
