'The Batman' Star Zoë Kravitz Explains Connection to Catwoman in Exclusive Featurette

Zoe Kravitz speaks on becoming Catwoman in DC's upcoming 'The Batman,' working with Robert Pattinson, and more ahead of the film's release on March 4.

On Friday, March 4, Batfans will be introduced to Matt Reeves’ The Batman, which includes fresh takes on Batman (Robert Pattinson), the Riddler (Paul Dano), and the Penguin (Colin Farrell), among other classic Batman characters. One of the most important shoes being filled is that of Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman, who is being portrayed by the dynamic Zoë Kravitz, and in this exclusive featurette ahead of the film’s release, Kravitz herself dives into the the character, who she “wouldn’t call” a villain, because there is “so much in the gray” in regards to Kyle and what (and why) she does what she does as Catwoman.

Director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, War for the Planet of the Apes) speaks in this featurette on why he felt Kravitz was a good fit for this role, saying that he could feel that “this is a character that she felt a connection to.” Later, Kravitz says that she “felt” for Kyle’s “story, her past, her strength. I really found a character who was more than just a sidekick or more than just a good-looking girl in a tight outfit. She’s a survivor.” The ways in which Catwoman and Batman’s stories mirror each other is intriguing and explored more in The Batman.

Check out the full featurette up above, and be sure to check out The Batman when it hits theaters on March 4.
