Principal photography on Matt Reeves
’ “The Batman
” kicked off this month in England, with Robert Pattinson
as Bruce Wayne / Batman and Zoe Kravitz
as Selina Kyle / Catwoman, his most enduring love interest, with whom he’s had a complex love-hate relationship.
Speaking to reporters on Friday after a Television Critics Association (TCA
) presentation for her upcoming Hulu
series “High Fidelity
,” Kravitz suggested that, in preparing to play Catwoman, she was looking for inspiration from an actress who previously wore the black catsuit in a movie.
“I think Catwoman is an iconic character,” Kravitz said. “I was never into a lot of comic books, but that world was always really intriguing to me. And then of course Michelle Pfeiffer
— her performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic.”
Michelle Pfeiffer portrayed the character in 1992’s “Batman Returns
” opposite Michael Keaton
as the dark knight, in a film directed by Tim Burton
