The character of Catwoman has had several live-action adaptations over the years. This includes Julie Newmar in the 1960s Batman television series, Michelle Pfeiffer’s portrayal in Batman Returns, Halle Berry’s ill-received standalone film Catwoman, and Anne Hathaway’s version in The Dark Knight Rises. This is also the second time Kravitz will play the character, as she voiced Kyle in The Lego Batman Movie. Kravitz will be joining her stepfather, Jason Momoa, in the DCEU, as Momoa is currently playing Aquaman.
