Zack Snyder confirms Catwoman Actress
Updated: Apr 29
Been a some time since we heard any news on our favourite superhero films. With the pandemic and the UK in a second lockdown. More and more films are being delayed with very little information shared. In regards to the DCEU, fans are desperately anticipating Zack Snyder's cut of the Justice League film. There's been a recent update in the expanding cast of the DCEU.
As Snyder has confirmed that Carla Gugino was his intended choice to play Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. In fact during his livestream interview with The Nerd Queens he had this to say in regards to Catwoman
"Probably I would say Carla's Catwoman [is perfect]. You would have to say, there's a flashback to ten years ago, where they were a thing. And then he had to arrest her, I don't know what happened, or he had to let her go, and it tweaked him. And now, who knows what she's doing now, she's running some sort of international antiquities or something, and he needs to retire, and they find each other. Yeah, I do think Carla is --- yeah, she is good."
Carla Gugino has an extensive resume in her acting career ranging form Emma Gaines in San Adreas, Laurie Roberts in American Gangster, Jessie Burlingame in Gerald's Game, Olivia Crane in Haunting of Hill House, The Storyteller/Eldery Jamie in Haunting of Bly Manor and she has some comic book roles too like Sally Jupiter aka Silk Spectre in Watchmen and was the voice of Kelor the service robot in Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. She would be a welcome addition to the DC Extended Universe and she wouldn't be the first actor to be recast in an additional role as Chinese Canadian actress Samantha Win (formerly Samantha Jo) was in Man of Steel as Car-Vex and then returned in Wonderwoman as Euboea. Beninese American actor Djimon Hounsou was King Ricou in Aquaman but also returned in Shazam as the Wizard Shazam. So Gugino won't be alone as an actor to play more than one role in the DCEU films if she does appear as Catwoman in the Zack Snyder cut.
Meanwhile the stand alone Batman film starring Robert Pattison as Bruce Wayne will still feature Zoe Kravitz as that version of Catwoman as well. But what do you guys think? will Carla Gugino nail the role of Catwoman for Ben Affleck's Batman?
