While it's not clear if, or more likely when, Catwoman will make an appearance in the DC Extended Universe? Actress Michelle Pfeiffer, who portrayed Catwoman in Batman Returns, would love to be the one to put on the catsuit and torment the Dark Knight once more.
Michelle Pfeiffer made an appearance on the Today show promoting Henry Rose, her new fragrance line. Host Hoda Kotb talked about Pfeiffer joining Instagram and asked if she would see herself getting back into the Catwoman suit.
"Oh, gosh. I mean, that would be incredible," said Pfeiffer. "I was sad when that ended. I was just getting comfortable with everything that I had to deal with and beginning to have some fun with it and then it was over."

Pfeiffer has clearly has Catwoman on her mind recently. On her Instagram account, her very first post is the scene from Batman Returns in which Catwoman does a series of backflips and lands in front of the Penguin and Batman. After saying "meow" there is a large explosion behind her, and "meow" is also the comment that she leaves on the video.
The actress also posted footage of her with the whip she used in Batman Returns. One entry has her holding it up in front of her, but the second Instagram video has her expertly cracking the whip towards camera. Pfeiffer's level of skill is pretty high, and her comment is that it's "just like riding a bike" followed by, of course, a cat emoji.
Little is known about The Batman, scheduled to debut in June of 2021. It is rumored to feature a younger Batman/Bruce Wayne, so Pfeiffer might not be the Catwoman director Matt Reeves has in mind for that movie.
Although she's interested in returning to her DC character, she's quite busy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp. She is also slated to play Queen Ingrith in the sequel to Maleficent, titled Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.
Michelle Pfeiffer played Catwoman/Selina Kyle in Tim Burton's 1992 sequel Batman Returns. After plans for a spinoff focused on her character fell through, a Catwoman film starring Halle Berry as a version of Catwoman named Patience Phillips was universally panned in 2004. Catwoman was played by Anne Hathaway in the 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan's final entry in the Batman trilogy.
Time will tell if Catwoman will appear in The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves. The film is scheduled for release on June 25, 2021.
