During a recent Livestream event with director Zack Snyder, DC fans suggested that Carla Gugino, who Snyder has worked with in the past, would have made the perfect Selina Kyle/Catwoman opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman. Snyder agreed and said that he would have cast her and even provided a little backstory as to how she could have fit into the story of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice if he would have made the character a part of his DC universe.
“Probably I would say Carla’s Catwoman [is perfect]. You would have to say, there’s a flashback to ten years ago, where [Batman and Catwoman] were a thing. And then he had to arrest her, I don’t know what happened, or he had to let her go, and it tweaked him. And now, who knows what she’s doing now, she’s running some sort of international antiquities or something, and he needs to retire, and they find each other. Yeah, I do think Carla is — yeah, she is good.”
Gugino did have a role in the franchise as she provided the voice of the Kryptonian scout ship’s computer. But I do love the idea of her playing Catwoman in Snyder’s DC cinematic universe. The previous Snyder films that Gugino appeared in include Sucker Punch and Watchmen.
