The Batman script is “wonderful,” according to the newly cast Catwoman, actress Zoe Kravitz, who plays Selina Kyle in the flick.
While appearing at the 2020 HULU Television Critics Association press tour on Friday, Kravitz spoke about The Batman.
“The script is wonderful. It’s really grounded and deep and I can’t say more than that, because I’ll get fired,” Kravitz said. “I think the whole Batman world… has always been the most interesting to me. I think Catwoman is such an iconic character. I was never into a lot of comic books, but that was always really intriguing to me. And then, of course, Michelle Pfeiffer and her performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic.”
Zoe Kravitz continued with the mention that Catwoman is a strong female character.
“I think Catwoman, Selina Kyle, represents really strong femininity, and I’m excited to dive into that,” she said. “I think femininity means power, and I think it’s a different power than masculine power, and I think that’s something that’s really interesting about Batwoman and Catwoman. I think Batman represents a very masculine power and Catwoman represents a very feminine power, slightly more complicated and softer too,” Kravitz shared. “I like the idea you can be soft and you can be gentle and still be very powerful and still be very dangerous.”
