Anne Hathaway is interested in returning to the DC Universe for a Catwoman spinoff movie.
In an interview at the Variety Studio at the Toronto Film Festival, presented by Airbnb, for her upcoming sci-fi action-thriller “Colossal,” Hathaway said she would love to tackle the character again, although she admitted it may be a difficult task.
“I loved that character and I had such a blast playing her,” Hathaway said. “I’m not sure how it would work because I think the Chris Nolan chapter of the Batman story has been wrapped up and I’m part of that, but I love the DC Universe and it would be fun to take a trip back.”
With a new vision for the DC Cinematic Universe well underway, including a Batman standalone film on the horizon, Hathaway was asked whether she feels possessive of the famous cat burglar.
“I don’t think you can,” she said. “It sort of goes with the territory when you accept it and receive it from the last Catwoman. I was shown such generosity from Halle [Berry] and from Michelle [Pfeiffer], and so I would do that the next time as well.”
