The Batman mythos isn’t complete without Catwoman. As both an adversary and love interest, she’s able to bring out a different side of the Dark Knight. Numerous actresses have assumed the role over the years from Eartha Kitt to Anne Hathaway, with Zoë Kravitz set to become the cat burglar next. However, for many people, the definitive Catwoman is Michelle Pfeiffer from Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. She was positively purr-fect in the part; she’s seductive and over-the-top in a way that works wonderfully in the off-the-wall superhero flick. If Keaton’s Batman is still going to be alive and kicking in The Flash movie, then surely Pfeiffer could return as well.
The actress was recently asked by Screen Rant whether she’d ever consider reprising one of her most iconic roles. “I would if anyone asked me but no one’s asked me yet,” she responded. That definitely sounds hopeful; now someone just needs to write the part for her, and we’re good to go. Granted, Pfeiffer has a lot on her slate at the moment — including another superhero franchise, with her reprising the role of Janet Van Dyne in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – but even a cameo in a future DC film would be enough to satiate fans’ desire to see her suit up as Catwoman once again.
While it’s currently unclear how big a role Keaton will have in The Flash, it does open the doors for him and Pfeiffer to reunite in future films. We’re still keeping our fingers crossed for a live-action Batman Beyond.
