Which of these Catwoman quotes is your favorite?

Julie Newmar’s take on Catwoman started the sexual tension between her and Batman. Michelle Pfieffer played the character in 1992 and really turned up the heat.

Maybe it was because it was the 90s and not the 60s, and she could. However, if you ask my husband it’s because she is Michelle Pfieffer and the best Catwoman!

Halle Berry followed Michelle Pfieffer, and sadly that movie kind of tanked, and Halle’s version of Catwoman is often ranked the worst. Anne Hathaway gave it a shot after that. While I love her, I have to agree with “the Michelle Pfieffer obsessed husband” and say the performance lacked… something.

Recently, it was announced that Zoe Kravitz would be playing the villain turned antihero, in the upcoming Batman movie. What are your thoughts on that?
