Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman pounced on screen in a new trailer for Matt Reeves’ The Batman reboot released on Monday, starring Robert Pattinson as the titular Caped Crusader.

A major role for the Big Little Lies and High Fidelity television star, Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman was a major highlight of the new trailer, as Selina Kyle carries on her storied cat-and-mouse (or rather cat-and-bat) criminal romance with the DC hero.

Following in the footsteps of Halle Berry, Michelle Pfeiffer, Anne Hathaway, and television Catwoman actresses Julie Newmar, Lee Meriweather, and Eartha Kitt, Zoe reprises her role as the costumed cat burglar, which she voiced in the 2017 Lego Batman Movie.

“The Bat and the Cat, has a nice ring,” Zoe Kravtiz says in the trailer. In another scene she responds to Batman telling her not to throw her life away by stating,” Don’t worry, I’ve got nine of them.”

In the new Batman film, Zoe’s Catwoman will reportedly help Pattinson take on Paul Dano’s The Riddler, a member of Batman’s rogues gallery that hasn’t appeared on the big screen since Jim Carrey’s role in 1995’s Batman Forever. The two stars will presumably have their most steamy romance on film yet, as the relationship between the criminal and the hero has evolved over the years to bring them closer and closer together.

At the end of 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle ended up together, done with their life of fighting crime. In the comics in recent years, Batman has even proposed to Catwoman. A big event in Batman comics written by Tom King almost had the two get married before Selina left Bruce Wayne at the altar.

“You’ve got a lot of cats,” Batman says in one scene of the trailer, with Catwoman responding “I have a thing about strays.”

The new trailer also showcased possibly the youngest and most violent Bruce Wayne yet, as he deals with his parents’ complicated history with the fictional city of Gotham.

“Batman’s so much stronger than me,” Zoe Kravitz recently joked in an interview with Empire. “We watched cats and lions and how they fight, and we talked about what is actually possible when you’re my size.”

Previous Catwoman actresses Haile Berry and Anne Hathaway were highly criticized over the years for their performances, making the DC heroine one of the hardest roles to portray in superhero film adaptations. A nimbler, more action-oriented Catwoman may end up being the best iteration yet.

“What is my skill? It’s being fast and tricky,” Zoe continued, “So we did some really interesting floor work that incorporated different kinds of martial arts and capoeira and a kind of feline, dance-like movement.”

Working with stunt coordinator Rob Alonzo, she said that they were “not just trying to do a bunch of impressive backflips that wouldn’t be possible for that person to do,” and that they took into account “where we are in the story and where the characters are emotionally.”

Director Matt Reeves planned for the DC hero’s next film appearance to be the characters dark and most psychologically torturing film yet, especially as The Riddler follows other brooding DC films such as Joker and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

“When I write, I listen to music, and as I was writing the first act, I put on Nirvana’s ‘Something In The Way,'” Reeves told Empire. “That’s when it came to me that, rather than make Bruce Wayne the playboy version we’ve seen before, there’s another version who had gone through a great tragedy and become a recluse. So I started making this connection to… the idea of this fictionalized version of Kurt Cobain being in this kind of decaying manor.”

Calling working on the film “really fun,” Zoe Kravitz will make her debut as Catwoman in The Batman when it premieres on Mar. 4, 2022. According to Warner Bros., it will be available to stream for HBO Max subscribers on Apr. 19 after a limited theater release.
