Michelle Pfeiffer Would Love to Play Catwoman Role Again
In the hearts of many comic book fans, Michelle Pfeiffer will always be the "true" live-action adaptation of Catwoman.
No offense to Anne Hathaway, who did an excellent job in portraying Selina Kyle in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises and in wiping off the bad taste in our mouths left behind by Halle Berry.
Pfeiffer played Catwoman in 1992's Batman Returns where she shared the screen with Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito. Fans would definitely love for her to return to that iconic role one day.
Turns out, that feeling is mutual.
In an interview with Variety, Pfeiffer said that she would love to reprise her Catwoman role, but won't repeat some of the stunts she did while playing the character. In one scene in Batman Returns, Catwoman put a small bird in her mouth. That bird wasn't a toy. That was a goddamn live animal.
Pfeiffer said she couldn't believe she actually did that. "I could have gotten a disease," she told Variety.
She also commented on the legacy of Batman Returns, which is still regarded by many as one of the best Batman movies. She credited director Tim Burton for the success: "It was all [him]. He was able to bring this heart and darkness and humor to it."
Pfeiffer is scheduled to appear in Ant-Man and The Wasp next year as Janet Van Dyne, marking her first foray into superhero movies since Batman Returns 25 years ago.
