    Default Best actress to portray Catwoman?

    What was your favorite portrayal of Catwoman on screen? This can include versions in animated series and films.

    I think for me it was Michelle Pfeiffer. I was just starting to notice the opposite sex at the time that movie came out and she....stirred the imagination. She also added depth to the character that IMO wasn’t really there with earlier versions. She was a good foil to Keaton’s Bruce Wayne/Batman too.

    That said, Julie Newmar was pretty good in the 60s series. Eartha Kitt not bad either.

    I really like Anne Hathaway but she didn’t have the best chemistry with Christian Bale.

    Haven’t seen the newer stuff but Zoe Kravitz is a superbabe. Can’t comment on her acting but I’ve heard she does a good job

    i am not sure who did the best job with it, but i think if they had cast fairuza balk in the ninties she would have nailed it...

    I think its been done already though, I know a lot of people dont like the Tim Burton one and it featured The Penguin as much as Catwoman but I think that that was the best.

    Michelle Pfeiffer, and it's not even close.

    Probably the one in B:TAS. I didn't like any of the live-action versions. As for actresses today who might do a good job: it should be someone who's athletic, playful, and exudes sex appeal - basically, someone who's hot and dangerous.

    Maybe someone like Emily Beecham (only 5 to 8 years younger) or Blake Lively:

    Camren Bicondova & Lili Simmons I like the character arc and growing up with Bruce. I like that she was often the wise beyond her years voice of reason to the people around her, and moreover that when they (of course) didnt listen to her, she was smart and looked out for number one. I like that she was a thief, but she wasnt greedy.

    Adrienne Barbeau The animated Series. I liked how Catwoman was always hanging out with Isis the Cat.

    Zoe Kravitz is a decent actor IMO, so that's not really an issue.

    Just kinda like... another catwoman? I think 3/7 Batman movies had Catwoman, and she even had her own movie (although it sucked).

    I've been kinda loving Spider-Man for at least trotting out villains who aren't the same 3-4 ones that are always used.



    I don't remember the batman TV series well. I'm always a fan of Michelle Pfieffer, who is talented, classy, and beautiful. From what i remember, her catwoman had the right amount of quirk/fickleness to it, although it's been years since I've seen the film. I thought Anne Hathaway did a great job too, but yeah -- not much chemistry there with Bale. I am not sure who Bale has chemistry with, now that I'm thinking about it, honestly. He's an obsessive/intense actor but I have trouble seeing him mesh with people well.

    I think Jamie Clayton would be the perfect choice for Catowman. She is the epitome of the modern day femininity.
