As heir to the femme fatale of classic cinema, Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, has always played with her sensuality as a weapon to hunt down the unwary in vignettes. And judging by the words of Zoe Kravitz, batman will echo it. For now, the actress has declared to pedestrian.tv (via comic book) that his version of the character is bisexual.
During the conversation, which took place after the premiere of the film, the interviewer questioned Kravitz about the feline thief of Gotham City, and specifically about his relationship with Anika, her roommate in the film. “That’s how I interpreted it, that they had some kind of romantic relationship,” the actress replied.
Always according to the video, the director Matt Reeves confirmed this impression. “I talked to Zoë at the beginning of it all and she told me something that she really liked: ‘[A Catwoman] she likes lost people because she was lost, and she wants to take care of them because she doesn’t want to see herself like that again: Anika is like a stray cat, and that’s why she loves her.” Reeves added that this stems from the relationship between Selina and her mother , “the one who lost, and who was also lost in life”.
Says Reeves: “I don’t think we intended to go in that direction, but you can play it that way, that’s for sure. She has an intimacy with that character, a tremendous and deep fondness, more than anything sexual, but we intended it to be very intimate.” “.
Although the words of Kravitz and Reeves are interesting, and although Catwoman is officially bi in the vignettes of DC, One wonders if the character will give any indication of this in the film. For now, the source also claims that Selina Kyle and the Batman of Robert Pattinson they have a lot of chemistry in the images of the film, but one thing is to represent this relationship, also canonical, and another to break the taboo about LGBT characters in the great blockbusters.
