Zoë Kravitz plays Catwoman in ‘The Batman’

Actor Zoë Kravitz has stepped into the role of Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, in the 2022 movie The Batman. Several actors have taken on the part before her, including Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Eartha Kitt

Kravitz opened up about how she prepared for the role in an interview with Jimmy Fallon for The Tonight Show. Part of her training included spending scheduled time with cats to study their movements and behaviors. 

“They tried to get me to know the cats that were Selina’s cats,” Kravitz explained. “And it’s funny, they would say, ‘Training at 1:30, and then rehearsal at this time, and then cat time,’ and I was like, ‘What’s cat time?’ And it was just putting me in a room with a bunch of cats, the cats that were going to be my cats.” 

She also revealed that she drank milk from a bowl, just like a cat. “I did that,” she assured a shocked Fallon. “I’m method, dude.”

He posted a photo of his daughter wearing the iconic catsuit with a whip in her hand. “Congratulations, my love, on this iconic moment,” Kravits captioned the image on Instagram. “I am so proud of you. #TheBatman.”
