Who is your Favourite Catwoman?
Selina Kyle has been portrayed in film and television more often than any other female comic-book character in history, her first ever live action portrayal was by Lee Meriwether in the 1966 Batman movie. The second actress was Julie Newmar who played Catwoman in two seasons of the Batman tv show in 1966 through 1967. In the third season of Batman, Eartha Kitt was brought in to replace Miss Newmar, who was unable to reprise the role due to other acting commitments. With the second in the Tim Burton Batman films…Batman Returns, Selina was played fantastically by Michelle Pfeiffer.
Then in 2004 came the film that most Catwoman fans (including us!) are desperately trying to erase from memory…simply called Catwoman, Selina was played by Halle Berry, who is an amazing actress…unfortunately the film was rather awful and despite Halle’s character being called Selina Kyle/Catwoman it had very little to do with the actual character herself. 2012 brought a new Selina to the big screen…in the Nolan movie: The Dark Knight Rises, Selina was played by Anne Hathaway and is to date the closest any actress has got to the original comic character. So who is your favourite….cast your vote below for the greatest Selina Kyle.
