Zoe Kravitz compares The Batman to making an independent film


Batman star Zoë Kravitz talks about her experience playing Catwoman in the film and why it felt like a standalone film during production.

The Batman might be a big-budget DC comic book adaptation, but for Zoë Kravitz, who plays Selina Kyle/Catwoman in the film, it felt more like a standalone film during production.

No stranger to the world of tentpoles, Kravitz has worked on several franchise films in the past, including X-Men: First Class, Divergent, Mad Max: Fury Road and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. When Another Magazine noted that fans of the DC Cinematic Universe are particularly “hardcore,” even more so than those of his previous projects, Kravitz agreed.

“They are, and because I respect them so much, I chose not to think about them while making the movie. If I’m thinking about wanting everyone to like it and all the fans to like it, I I’m not really going to bring a real person to life. [Writer/director] Mast [Reeves] wrote a really interesting story with a complex character, and the relationships are really interesting. All I wanted to do was honor that history,” she replied.

Although known for her hit production, Kravitz has received much more critical acclaim as an actress for her work on smaller projects, including HBO. big little lies series and Hulu High fidelity TV show. She described the production on The Batman as being closer to his background in the worlds of independent film and television, stating, “Sometimes with really big movies, it can feel like you’re just a puppet and part of this big machine. It felt like an independent film in the sense that there was heart and soul and thought in the process and in every scene. It was incredibly collaborative.

“Matt is very precise,” she added. “It took him a year to do this because of COVID. We were in this bubble, really in this world, and it was an amazing experience. To spend a year of your life, and it’s very physically demanding… I had to be in very specific shape, and there’s a pandemic going on I’m getting into a wetsuit every day at 7 a.m., working 12 hours a day, and then I come home and I I’m training. It was intense.
