Zoë Kravitz, who will soon be seen as Catwoman in Matt Reeves' The Batman for DC, led by Robert Pattinson, recently opened up about how she landed the role.
Kravitz said she read the script, and Reeves discussed her thoughts on it to see if they were on the same page. She explained that it's very easy for big, coveted roles to slip past an actor's hands. So, one thing she tried was not to remain "agreeable and likable" just to bag the part.
Kravitz said that giving her input to the script was a way of making Reeves' give an understanding into what it would be like to work with her. "I tried to come at it from the angle where I am showing him what I see and feel about this character. I believe that’s why it happened and I got the role," she told AnotherMag in an interview.
Calling Reeves a "fantastic director," she added that her comments on the script and character were always welcomed.
On film, Catwoman has previously been portrayed by Lee Meriweather (1966), Michelle Pfieffer (1992), Anne Hathaway (2012), and Halle Berry (2004).
The Batman is set to release in theatres on March 4, 2022. Besides Pattinson and Kravitz, the cast also includes. Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone.
Pattinson took on the role of the caped crusader after Ben Affleck stepped down from the role to make way for younger, fresher talent. The actor, who was last seen in Christopher Nolan's espionage thriller Tenet, officially boarded the cast in 2019. The production began in 2020, and with some delays due to the pandemic, the team was able to conclude the shoot this year.
Pattinson had previously said that his version of Batman is not at all similar to Nolan's in the Dark Knight trilogy.
