    Yeah, I can't see how Catwoman works when she overtake the story. But Matt Reeves is a damn good filmmaker. So we will see

    lol i want catwoman to be a bigger part of this story.

    it's never really been done before in live action.
    sure she had a big role in BR and TDKR, but this appears to be substantially more.
    her arc is more central to the plot it seems.

    Just eager to know where this universe is going to go with Selina and Carmine Falcone. I've heard conflicting things.

    I love how people are afraid of it happening again…. Catwoman being the highlight in a Batman film. There is never enough Catwoman. Too much Joker in every piece of media? Absolutely.

    In relation to Batman when she starts to take over she loses her charm. As I said, she needs to be used very strategically and sparingly.

    She might be his girlfriend instead of his daughter in this world. And then I heard another rumor about them being related but it’s unknowingly incesty at first. I don’t think that’s true though.

    Batman Returns is amazing and she owns that movie along with Penguin. I can imagine a Batman fan being annoyed by it but I’m a Catwoman one so…. it makes me happy.

    I've heard both of those as well.

    And no one can give me a straight answer on
    whether she's actually at the funeral or not, someone stated that Bruce mistakes a woman for Selina b/c there is a woman dressed in exactly the same outfit I'm the behind the scenes pics, and they are adamant that woman wasn't a stand-in

    Love what I’m seeing from Zoe here. I love everything I’ve seen from this film so far but she’s my favorite. That “nine lives” line is so perfect.

    theres lot of good catwoman-centric stories to mine from.
    when in rome, the darwyn cooke stuff, etc.

    i get a feeling theres going to be a lot of heavy influence for catwoman from when in rome.
    and long halloween + year one of course.

    The trailers definitely give me a Year One/Her Sister’s Keeper feeling.

    I hope we eventually get a spin off that is heavily inspired by the Darwyn Cooke Run with some When in Rome thrown in.

    This is what I was thinking. Sprinkle in some of Darwyn Cooke’s Selina’s Big Score too and you have a lot of stories to explore.

    It is interesting that for this movie the only comic that Matt asked Selina to read was Year One.

    I don’t if its due to how she’s being written, or how she’s being played, but every time I see Zoë in this, I feel like I want to see more. Whereas, with Anne in TDKR, I felt pretty much the exact opposite. And I absolutely love and adore Anne.

    With TDKR, it always brings me back to how apparently Nolan didn’t seem that interested in Selina/Catwoman and that it was his brother that really pushed him for her to be included. Maybe that could be part of the reason as to why she feels so bland and boring in comparison to other iterations like say Michelle and seemingly Zoë. Well that’s how it feels to me at least.

    Hot take: One of the few things I don't like about this movie is the fight scene between Batman and Catwoman. In the comics Selina is nowhere near Bruce's level of combat, he decks the **** out of her. But in The Batman seems like she is evenly matched/on the same skill level as him.

    That makes no sense. I mean... Batman is the master of all martial arts, he literally spent nearly 12 years abroad honing his skills. But he can't beat Catwoman? No way!

    She’s not on his level at all in this. He’s toying.

    I guess we all know batman would win against Selina, but we expect it to be a bit of a challenge.
    Im also expecting from her to be able to get away with her prize every now and then.

    from the trailer it looks like batman is holding back and just going on defense against selina.

    Granted, she hasn’t had Bruce’s level of ninja training, but fighting-wise Selina is still no slouch. I like the Bat/Cat fight from what we’ve seen so far. It’s what they do in their relationship, they’re toying and sizing each other up.

    Their version of foreplay.
