Michelle Pfeiffer has indicated that she would “consider” restoring her role as a Catwoman.
The actress, played by Selina Kyle in Tim Burton’s 1992 film Batman Returns, has ruled out the return of the character after Michael Keaton’s return as the upcoming Caped Crusader.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Pfeiffer said, “It would depend on the context but, yes, I would consider it.”
Following Pfeiffer’s production, Halle Berry has been portrayed by Catwoman in Catwoman 2004, Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises, and Zoe Kravitz in The Batman.
From Batman Returns, Janet Van Dyne is the only other Pfeiffer superhero role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Janet Van Dyne, aka the original Wasp. He played the character in Ant-Man And The Wasp, Avengers: Endgame and will return in Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania next year.
Last year, Keaton explained why he decided to return to the role of Batman after 30 years. The actor recalled thinking, “‘What would it be like?’ or ‘What if I had to do it again?’ Just because I was curious I didn’t want to do it.
“I’m not going to say I have to do it. It has to be good. And there has to be a reason.”
Keaton will make his first appearance as Batman in Batgirl, alongside Leslie Grace as title hero, JK Simmons, Brendan Fraser and Jacob Scipio. The premiere of the film is scheduled for the end of this year.
He will have a second appearance in The Flash alongside Ezra Miller, which will be released in June 2023. In the film, starring Barry Allen, aka The Flash, Ben Affleck’s final arc as Batman will also be involved.
Discussing his final moments as the character earlier this year, Affleck described them as “perhaps my favorite scenes” in the role of Batman.
