Switching focus to "The Batman," DC films come with their own unique brand of pressure. Is that something you're nervous about?
Kravitz: Definitely, I was excited when I got the role, and usually when you get a job the people who are excited about it are you, your parents, your agent, your friends and that's kind of it. But
when the press release came, I got more text messages and calls than I've gotten on my birthday, on my wedding day. All of a sudden, the reality began to sink in about what this means not only to me, but
to everybody else culturally - and the fans of this universe are so dedicated and opinionated.
You could certainly say that.
Kravitz: It was a little scary, but also whenever I get nervous about something, I feel it pushes me to a better place anyway, so I welcome the nerves. If you start focusing too much on what people
are going to think you're doing yourself a disservice, it's almost like you're putting your energy in the wrong place. Of course, I want to honor the fans and hope they like what I do with the role, but
in order to do what I think I need to do with Catwoman I have to go internal and forget about the rest of the world.
How do you feel about Robert Pattinson as Batman? What has it been like working with him so far?
Kravitz: I've never worked with him before, but we've been together for the last few weeks, I had to camera test with him and now we've been training together and rehearsing together and he's just a
delightful person and such a wonderful, thoughtful actor. I think he's perfect for the role and it's going to be such an adventure. I'm excited to have him as my partner in crime and to be there to support
each other, because it's intense. It's going to be a long shoot and there's a lot of pressure, and I know he has my back and I have his.
