Kravitz emphasized the character’s strength and power through femininity as opposed to Batman’s typically masculine approach: “I think Catwoman, Selina Kyle represents really strong femininity, and I’m excited to dive into that.” She added, “I think femininity represents power, and I think it’s a different kind of power than masculine power. That’s something that’s really interesting about Batman and Catwoman. I think Batman represents a very kind of masculine power, and Catwoman represents very feminine power — slightly more complicated, and softer, too. I like the idea that you can be soft, you can be gentle and still be very powerful and still be very dangerous.”

She also spoke during a panel for the upcoming Hulu series, High Fidelity. She praised Michelle Pfeiffer’s take on Catwoman in particular: “I think Catwoman is an iconic character,” she said. “I was never into a lot of comic books, but that world was always really intriguing to me. And then, of course, Michelle Pfeiffer — her performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic.”

Kravitz’s next project, High Fidelity, drops on Hulu, February 14th.
