Actor Zoe Kravitz says she intends to channel the strong feminine traits of iconic DC character Catwoman in her portrayal for the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman.

Kravitz, best known for films such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will portray Selina Kyle aka Catwoman in the movie which will see Robert Pattinson making his debut as Batman.

Talking on the sidelines of Television Critics Association's winter press tour, the 31-year-old actor said she looks up to Michelle Pfeiffer, who portrayed the character in Tim Burton's Batman Returns, for inspiration.

"I think Catwoman is an iconic character. I was never into a lot of comic books, but that world was always really intriguing to me. And then, of course, Michelle Pfeiffer's performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic," Kravitz said.

The actor said she is excited to dive into the world of Kyle, who represents 'really strong femininity'. "I think femininity represents power, and I think it's a different kind of power than masculine power. That's something that's really interesting about Batman and Catwoman. I think Batman represents a very kind of masculine power, and Catwoman represents very feminine power, slightly more complicated, and softer, too. I like the idea that you can be soft, you can be gentle and still be very powerful, still be very dangerous," Kravitz said.

The Batman will also feature Jeffrey Wright, Paul Dano, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, and John Turturro in pivotal roles. The film has a release date of June 25, 2021.
