Gal Gadot has expressed her excitement for Zoë Kravitz’s performance as ‘Catwoman’ in the highly anticipated ‘The Batman’. The model-turned-Hollywood A-lister has starred in the DCEU as Diana Prince/’Wonder Woman’ in 5 films, including the recent ‘Zack Snyder’ recut of ‘Justice League’. Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman’ films have been praised as impressive female-led superhero movies, a long step from historical duds like Halle Berry’s ‘Catwoman’ in the early 2000s.
The new actress taking up the feline mantle of Selina Kyle is Zoë Kravitz. The Rough Night star will appear as the anti-heroine cat burglar in Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman;’ the upcoming ‘DC reboot’, opposite Robert Pattinson’s new Bruce Wayne. Kravitz follows on from iconic previous ‘Catwomen’ including Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway. The new Selina Kyle appears to be a more back-to-basics, low-tech cat burglar, who will once again find herself embroiled in a romantic feud with the caped crusader.
In an interview with Variety, Gadot responded to the addition of Kravitz’ ‘Catwoman’ to the DC universe. Having seen the recently released 2nd trailer for the upcoming film, Gadot states that “She [Kravitz] looks incredible.” Gadot then praises the actress as a “talented woman” before stating she’s “so happy to have another female as a comrade.”
Adding to her approval of Kravitz as a DC hero, Gadot later implied that she’d be open for fellow “comrades” like ‘Catwoman’ to join Wonder Woman in a female team-up movie. When asked if she’d be up for the crossover, Gadot said “We should ask Walter Hamada.”
