Zoe Kravitz Dishes on Playing Catwoman & Explains Why Robert Pattinson is 'Perfect' to Play Batman!

Zoe Kravitz is dishing on The Batman!

During an interview with on Variety and iHeart podcast “The Big Ticket,” the 31-year-old actress revealed what it was like when she first saw herself wearing the Catwoman costume.

“It’s cool, man. It’s cool,” Zoe shared. “I can’t say it wasn’t cool, but I’ve been really trying to not think too much about just what that character means to everybody else. Just because it can be distracting in the wrong way, especially when you’re trying to become someone else.”

Zoe went on to share what it was like when news first broke that she will be playing Selena Kyle aka Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson as Batman.

“When the announcement came out that I had gotten this role, my phone rang more than it has ever,” Zoe continued. “More than my birthday, more than my wedding, more than anything. So I felt that immediate pressure…The script is phenomenal. The story’s really strong. I feel very clear on who Selena is and what she wants, and I’m trying to stay more focused on that.”

Zoe then explained why she thinks Rob is “perfect” actor to play the Caped Crusader.

“He started out as this kind of teen pop sensation, and then I think we all kind of saw through his work that there was a lot more going on,” Zoe said. “He’s a really interesting artist, and that is very much Batman in a way. We have the illusion of Bruce Wayne, and then we have Batman in the shadows that has a lot more complicated things going on.”

“So just in that, I think he’s perfect for this role. He can relate in that way, and he looks good in the suit, man. He looks good in the suit. That’s a good jaw line,” Zoe explained. “But he’s just a great actor and he brings so much to everything he does. I think that it’s a really hard role because people are expecting a lot. Also it’s restricting in a lot of ways. You’re wearing the suit, and you can’t see their eyes, and you can only move in a certain way. So you have to get really creative in terms of how can you portray a multidimensional character? He’s way up for the challenge and has really interesting ideas already. I think he’s perfect, perfect casting.”

During another interview, Zoe revealed why she’s a little nervous about returning to set of The Batman.

The movie is currently set for release on ‎October 1, 2021.

When asked if they’d already completing filming, he said “No.”

“I had a shaved head in that movie and I have not cut my hair or shaved obviously since that movie which I was working on in London at the end of February,” he continued.

“I have a beard, like a large beard, and I was sort of hoping to do [wife] Maggie [Gyllenhaal]‘s movie with the beard, but you know, if I have to go back and shoot Batman before Maggie‘s movie, which I don’t know yet, then I don’t have to be clean-shaven in Maggie‘s movie.”

“We’re gonna go back and finish it…it’s going to take time. Movies like that are way harder. You know, they’ve got so many people on set, so many locations, and moving around and logistical s–t. On Batman, we’re gonna have to have rules…there are tons of people doing so many jobs,” he went on to explain.

He also spoke further about the short film he made with Maggie during quarantine that will be available on Netflix this month.

This star recently revealed why he’s only played Batman once.

SiriusXM’s EW Live hosted by Jessica Shaw and Dalton Ross can be heard daily from 2:00 – 4:00 pm ET on SiriusXM Stars channel 109.
