The iconic woman who wore the face of many iconic characters such as The Wasp in Ant-Man and The Wasp, LouAnne Johnson of Dangerous Minds, Velma Von Tussie of Hairspray, and Queen Ingrith of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Michelle Pfeiffer wore the suit of Catwoman in the 1992 film Batman Returns as the villain opposing Michael Keaton's Batman.

Selina Kyle aka Catwoman wreaked havoc in Batman Returns as the playful and dangerous Catwoman who vowed to get revenge and teamed up with another villain, Penguin, against her boss Max Schreck who proposed the building of a powerplant to supply energy throughout Gotham City.

With Batman being the vigilante protector of Gotham, Batman tried to stop both Penguin and Catwoman.

Unlike Michael Keaton and director Tim Burton, Michelle Pfeiffer never got to reprise her role again as Catwoman for the next two sequels Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.

With this, Pfeiffer expressed her interest to reprise her role again if ever given the chance. Pfeiffer added that she is just waiting for anyone to ask her to wear the Catwoman suit again and make an offer.

Reportedly, Michael Keaton will only be appearing in The Flash of director Andy Muschietti.

If and when Keaton's Batman would be in the film, it is also possible that Catwoman would also be there and now that Pfeiffer already gave her sentiments as regards the role, it would not be as hard to get the actress to play it again alongside Keaton.

The Flash will star Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton, Ben Affleck, and Billy Crudup. The film is expected for a theatrical release on June 2, 2022.
