The Batman’s Zoë Kravitz Gets Visited By Previous Catwomen on SNL

The Batman star Zoë Kravitz is joined by two previous Catwomen, a cat lady and Katt Williams during her opening monologue for Saturday Night Live.

The Batman star Zoë Kravitz was visited by several previous Catwomen (and cats in general) while hosting a recent episode of Saturday Night Live (SNL).

During her opening monologue, Kravitz was interrupted by SNL player Kate McKinnon, dressed as Michelle Pfeiffer’s iteration of Catwoman from 1992’s Batman Returns, who set off the “Cat Signal” to call other Catwomen to the stage. This included other SNL stars such as Ego Nwodim dressed as Eartha Kitt’s Catwoman from the 1967 Batman television series, Aidy Bryant as a “Cat Lady” and Chris Redd as Katt Williams.

Not included in the monologue was Halle Berry’s iteration of the character, who played the title role in 2004’s catwoman, which famously earned her the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress that same year. Also missing from SNL‘s Catwoman lineup was Anne Hathaway’s version from 2012’s The Dark Knight Riseswho was the last actor to portray the character in live-action. The Batman makes Kravtiz the eighth live-action Catwoman across film and television and, prior to the film’s release in theaters, Berry shared her thoughts about Kravitz’s debut at Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

“Just be courageous and bring her own interpretation to the role,” Berry said about her hopes for Kravitz in the role. “I think she’s going to be an amazing Catwoman. And I can’t wait to see what her interpretation of that is.” In terms of her interpretation, when discussing what separates The Batman‘s Selina Kyle/Catwoman from previous incarnations, Kravitz pointed to an “emotional” transformation for the character that audiences haven’t really seen in previous portrayals.

“To see a person like Selina really get in touch with her power and become Catwoman? That’s a journey that I’m really interested in exploring,” Kravitz said in a previous interview. “We haven’t quite seen that yet. We usually meet Catwoman, and it’s either a very quick transformation — an overnight thing — or she’s already there. And so to find the emotional journey that brings her to the place where she is making the choice to be this person, is what I’m really excited about.”

Directed and co-written by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Lt. James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin. The Batman has been described by both Reeves and Pattinson as a neo-noir crime thriller. In particular, the film follows a younger Bruce Wayne who is only in his second year of vigilantism and will lean heavily into the character’s detective abilities.


The Batman is now in theaters.
