Zoe Kravitz Pays Homage To Michelle Pfeiffer Wearing The Catsuit
Filming has resumed on Matt Reeves’ The Batman, the Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz-led flick. Kravitz has taken on Catwoman, Selina Kyle’s iconic role, adding her to the shortlist of actresses who have had to wear the notorious catsuit in the history of Hollywood.
One of Catwoman’s most famous portrayals was Michelle Pfeiffer’s. In Batman Returns in 1992, her sinister, sultry, whip-wielding Catwoman made her debut, and her catsuit was just one of the many unforgettable moments from the film.
New images captured on Oct. 12 during The Batman shooting in Liverpool, England give fans a peek into the fashion of Selina Kyle in the upcoming film, and any Pfeiffer stans can stand out with one detail of her elegant, all-black look.
Advice By Pfeiffer To Kravitz For The Costume
“Make sure whilst designing the costume, they consider how you’re going to go to the bathroom.”
In the pictures, Kravitz, with John Turturro, who plays Carmine Falcone, is seen walking arm-in-arm. She’s wearing a long, shiny black coat with a matching fascinator, and if you look closely at her boots, they’re very much like the boots Pfeiffer wore back in 1992. If the shoes aren’t the same, they’re close enough to feel like a tribute. And faith, this is a look.
“Honor the past. Welcome the future,” along with the pictures, read the tweet.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Peter Sarsgaard as District Attorney Gil Colson, under the direction of Matt Reeves and written by Reeves and Mattson Tomlin. The movie will arrive in theatres on March 4, 2022.
