The question of whether or not Catwoman’s prominence in The Batman will lead to more material starring Gotham’s resident cat burglar has been answered, as Warner Bros. has confirmed that the feline felon will star in a new animated project.
The Hollywood Reporter released the first image from the upcoming animated movie, titled Catwoman: Hunted, along with a synopsis and voice cast.
In the film, Selina Kyle tries to steal a priceless gem – as she is wont to do – and finds herself, yet again, in the crosshairs of various parties and law enforcement, including a consortium of enemies such as Black Mask and Interpol.
Bruce Wayne’s cousin, Batwoman, is also on her tail, and will be voiced by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriz, who had previously vied for replacing Ruby Rose in the Scarlet Knight’s The CW series.
Voicing Selina is Dynasty reboot actress Elizabeth Gillies, while Black Mask’s vocals are supplied by Jonathan Banks, who at the moment may be best known for his role in AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul.
Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan will voice Alfred’s niece and Batwoman’s former flame Julia, who’s never far behind in this kind of adventure.
Other big names to be found include the ever-busy Jonathan Frakes, Keith David, and Steve Blum, who will join Banks in playing characters on the other side of the law. Respectively, they play King Faraday & Boss Moxie (Frakes), Tobias Whale (David), and Solomon Grundy (Blum).
Rounding out the rest of the cast is Zehra Fazal as Talia al Ghul & Nosferata, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Cheetah, Kelly Hu as Cheshire, Andrew Kishino as Mr. Yakuza & Domino 6, Eric Lopez as Domino 1, Jacqueline Obradors as La Dama, and Ron Yuan as Doctor Tzin.
Catwoman: Hunted is written by Greg Weisman and directed by Shinsuke Terasawa. Sam Register acts as executive producer with Ethan Spaulding and Colin A.B.V. Lewis producing.
The film is expected to release on either streaming or Blu-ray/DVD in Fall 2022.
