Just last week, Dorkaholics was in attendance at the Warner Bros. Lot for an early screening of The Batman followed by a Q&A with Zoë Kravitz and other members of the cast and crew, moderated by Tiffany Smith, familiar to DC fans as one of the hosts of DC All Access.
Smith had a question for Kravitz specifically about her character, Selina Kyle.
“Was there something where you felt like you really found Selina for you?” Smith asked.
“The character is so well developed in the script and I was really excited to explore her backstory and where she comes from and the process that she goes through in terms of, you know, becoming closer to what will be Catwoman, but it was really lovely to be able to play Selina and not have to jump straight to Catwoman,” Kravitz said. “With these iconic characters that we all love so much, it can be overwhelming in terms of OK here’s Catwoman. Now, I have this wonderful opportunity to slowly develop her and the audience gets to come on this journey with me. Learning all the combat and the way she moves and finding ways to hint at who she will become was a really fun process.”
An audience member would go on to ask Kravitz about her experience training for the role.
“Could you talk about the details of how you trained and what you did?”
“It’s cool the way Rob Alonzo really wants us to understand, having the skill to box and react, and then he teaches you the choreography later so that it’s fresh. And I think that really keeps it really electric. The way he works is really organic,” Kravitz answered.
