American actress Zoe Kravitz who plays Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming DC movie The Batman has opened up about how she feels about the purring female.
The role of Catwoman has been played previously by Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway and Kravitz (who is incidentally the step-daughter of Aquaman actor Jason Momoa) looks set to bring her own version of the feline character.
Kravitz who recently spoke at a recent Television Critics Association panel stated that while Batman represents a very masculine power, Catwoman stands for very strong feminine power.
I think femininity means power and I think it’s a different kind of power than masculine power. That’s something I think is really interesting about the Batman and Catwoman. I think Batman represents a very masculine power and Catwoman represents very feminine power, slightly more complicated and softer too. I like the idea that you can be soft, you can be gentle and still be very powerful and still be very dangerous.
I think the whole Batman world has always been the most interesting to me. I think Catwoman is an iconic character. I was never into a lot of comic books but that world was always really intriguing to me. Then of course Michelle Pfeiffer, her performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic. I think Catwoman, Selina Kyle represents really strong femininity and I’m excited to dive into that.Zoe Kravitz
Asked if she had tried the catsuit, she said:
I have. That’s all I can say. That’s all I’m legally allowed to say. I really can’t say anything. I’m sorry. I’ll just get in trouble. She’s a great character. I’m very excited to play her. The script is wonderful, really grounded and deep. I can’t say more than that because I’ll get fired.
