Catwoman will have her distinctive whip in Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie, according to a recently released action figure. At this week’s virtual DC Fandome event, a new teaser for The Batman was released, displaying Reeves’ more modern and gothic take on the franchise, as well as new footage of the film’s primary cast.
The video also gave fans a closer look at Robert Pattinson’s Batman in action, including a pursuit scene in the new-look Batmobile and a fight with a gang of face-painted criminal thugs.
Entertainment Earth has created a set of The Batman action figures, which was one of the many announcements made at yesterday’s DC event.
Action Figure Confirms Whip
A model of the new Catwoman (Zo Kravitz) wearing a very familiar piece of gear is among them. Despite having a prominent role in the latest teaser for The Batman, Kravitz’s Catwoman has kept her whip hidden.
As a result, the action figure is the first proof that her signature weapon and burglary tool will appear in the film. Selina Kyle’s new attire, which includes rough leathers and a cat-eared motorbike helmet, is also revealed in the new figure.
Kravtiz recently spoke on her Catwoman role, emphasising her desire for the character to seem “real” rather than fetishized. Kravitz looks to have accomplished this in the clip, and her costume complements Reeves’ newest take on the Dark Knight.
While Batman’s most recent outings haven’t exactly been cheerful, Reeve’s film is definitely aimed at being an unsettling, modern Batman storey, and Kravitz’ Catwoman appears to be a wonderful fit for the visual style.
It’s evident that Reeves is the right man for the job when it comes to the future of the Batman film franchise. While much about Pattinson’s Batman project remains a mystery, the latest trailer lends credence to legendary actor Andy Serkis’ prediction that The Batman will be “wonderful.”
With the picture concentrating on a much younger Batman, there’s plenty of room for the actor to reprise his legendary role as the Gotham City’s Defender in future films.
