Stunning new fan art imagines what Zoë Kravtiz’s updated Catwoman costume could look like in Matt Reeves’ highly anticipated The Batman 2.
Young The Batman 2 Fan art imagines what Catwoman’s updated costume would look like in Matt Reeves’ sequel. Launched earlier this year, The Batman received strong reviews from audiences and critics alike, with praise for Reeves’ dark version of Gotham City, Robert Pattinson’s Batman, and Zoë Kravitz’s Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman. Previously portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway, Catwoman features prominently in The Batman, helping the Caped Crusader stop the Riddler (Paul Dano) as he seeks his own revenge. The Batman 2 has been confirmed to be in the early stages of development with Reeves penning the script, but the sequel still doesn’t have a firm release date.
In stunning new fan art posted to Instagram, artist @jaxsonderr imagines what Catwoman’s updated Kravitz costume would look like in The Batman 2🇧🇷 While Kravitz is yet to be confirmed to return in the sequel to The Batman, the art features a design of Catwoman that stays true to her depiction in the original film, featuring a major update to her mask. Instead of the cloth mask she wore The Batman, the art features the character now wearing a leather or plastic mask more similar to what previous iterations of the character have worn.

What could be next for Catwoman in The Batman 2
While Pattinson’s Batman decides to stay and help rebuild a damaged Gotham City after the Riddler’s terrorist attacks, Catwoman takes her leave and moves on. Despite the film’s ending, it’s hard to imagine that The Batman 2 won’t feature his return in any way, especially with the strong chemistry between Pattinson and Kravitz. Batman and Catwoman are clearly attracted to each other, but have different views when it comes to Gotham City and how to deal with criminals, which could create an interesting dynamic between the two characters in The Batman 2🇧🇷
It’s unclear who the central villain will be. The Batman 2, but the first film’s Joker tease creates a number of exciting possibilities. If Barry Keoghan returns as the Clown Prince of Crime, a team-up between Batman and Catwoman to defeat him would mark a live-action first for the franchise. Of course, Catwoman’s cynical worldview could make any collaboration between the two characters more conditional, with Kyle still pursuing his own interest in some form. That said, The Batman 2 could also do well to put Batman and Catwoman on opposite sides of a conflict this time around, with their romantic connection serving to add more excitement to any fight between them.
What’s next for Kravitz’s Catwoman in the sequel to The Batman, seeing her wearing an updated, updated costume would be an interesting evolution for the character. As Batman, Reeves’ vision featured a more stripped-down version of Catwoman, which matches the film’s noir aesthetic. Having survived the events of the first film and grown as a character, it would make sense if The Batman 2 it also gave her an updated look, as she continues to become more formidable as Batman’s femme fatale.
