“You have people just touching your face, touching your body all day long. I need help getting into the catsuit. I can’t do it on my own”.
It seems being Catwoman in the time of Covid could be a particularly difficult obstacle to navigate according to the current incumbent, Zoë Kravitz, who was speaking to Variety about concerns she might have when filming resumes on Matt Reeves’ blockbuster The Batman.
While Kravitz is eager to return to her role as Selina Kyle, revealing that she’s “hoping to wake up every day to an email or phone call saying ‘We’re ready to go'”, the actress counters that by saying that “I was probably touched more than any job [working on The Batman], just because of the clothes and the combat and all of that”.
Like most people in the world, the Gemini star was also unclear as to when her day job would resume, adding that she was “in touch with everybody, and everyone’s ready to go when it’s safe, but no, we have no idea.”
