British actress Vanessa Kirby says she’d be down to play Catwoman in the new “Batman” movie.
There’s been speculation that she was being considered for the role in the forthcoming superhero film “The Batman,” which will star Robert Pattinson and be directed by Matt Reeves.
Kirby discussed the idea at the world premiere for her new film, “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” in Los Angeles.
“I don’t know anything about it,” she told Entertainment Tonight, adding, yes, she’s interested in the role in “The Batman.” “Are you kidding?! I would love to be Catwoman. Oh my god, it would be a dream.”
Kirby even entertained the idea of getting in Catwoman shape immediately.
“I have to do lots of squats,” she said. “I mean, literally, lots of squats.”
She said she’s ready to tackle anything after her action-heavy role in “Hobbs & Shaw,” which also taught her to fight for female equality.
“I just never thought in a million years I would be an action girl because I’m just not naturally like that at all,” Kirby said. “But yeah, there is something about this particularly that made me — I really felt like it was such a good opportunity to take care of this female character in this massively male world and to make sure, every day, we made sure in every area, she was a capable fighter.”
“That she had all the best fights,” she added. “That she was never saved by the guys… And I hope it instills some kind of change.”
