Catwoman/Selina Kyle hasn't been confirmed for Matt Reeves' The Batman, though it hasn't stopped people from guessing who'd be a good fit for the character. In fact, Michelle Pfeiffer, who famously played Catwoman in 1992's Batman Returns, gave her opinion on who she'd like to see take on the role.
Pfeiffer spoke with Variety during the premiere of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil when she was asked who she'd like to see portray Catwoman in The Batman. "I don't know. I'm sure they'll get somebody magnificent," she said at first. However, when the idea of Elle Fanning playing the character came up, Pfeiffer said, "She would be awesome."
Fanning co-stars with Pfeiffer in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the sequel to 2014's Maleficent.
It was recently rumored that Reeves was looking for a woman of color to play Catwoman, initially considering Zoe Kravitz. Other live-action portrayals of the character include Eartha Kitt in the 1960s Batman TV series, Halle Berry in 2004's Catwoman and Anne Hathaway in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises.
The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves, who will also produce alongside Dylan Clark. While casting is still underway, the film is scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.
