Directed by Matt Reeves, 'The Batman' has finally seen the light and with it, many revelations have been made. From critics calling Robert Pattinson one of the best actors to perform Bruce Wayne, to people wanting a sequel of the movie.

Alongside Robert Pattinson, the cast includes Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrel, Andy Serkis, and Jeffrey Wright, making it one of the most amazing cast we have seen so far.

Anyway, more recently during an interview with Australia's Pedestrian, Zoë Kravitz alongside Matt Reeves talked about her character, Selina Kyle a.k.a Catwoman, and addressed the elephant in the room. Is Catwoman bisexual?

For those who have not read the comics or simply do not know about this, Selina Kyle is often depicted as bisexual. In fact, she came out of the closet back in 2015 in the DC Comic Catwoman #39 where she kissed another girl. Later she married Bruce Wayne, but that's another story.

Anyway, during the interview, Zoë Kravitz was asked about Catwoman's sexuality and the actress confirmed that it is true and that being that way was her inspiration to portray the role. "That's definitely the way I interpreted that, that they had some kind of romantic relationship," she told Pedestrian.

Without giving any spoilers, there is a scene where Catwoman enters a room searching for a friend and she calls her 'baby' hinting that something else is going on there. Having said this, it is the first time Catwoman is portrayed as bisexual on the big screen because Halle Berry, Ertha Kitt, Michelle Pifer, and Anne Hathaway did not give a hint about this in their respective performance.

As we previously mentioned, Matt Reeves was also interviewed and talked about Selina and this exact scene. "In terms of her relationship with Anika, I spoke to Zoë very early on and one of the things she said, which I loved, was that Kyle is drawn to strays because she was a stray and so she really wants to care for these strays because she doesn't want to be that way anymore, and Anika is like a stray and she loves her. She actually represents this connection that she has to her mother who she lost, who was a stray anymore."

He added that it was not meant to be perceived that way but if you want to interpret Catwoman that way, you would be not wrong. "So I don't think we meant to go directly in that way, but you can interpret it that way for sure," he added. "She has an intimacy with that character and it's a tremendous and deep caring for that character, more so than a sexual thing, but there was meant to be quite an intimate relationship between them."
