There’s nothing quite badass like Michelle Pfeiffer draped in a Catwoman outfit, flaunting her skills with the iconic whip!
And fans of the 1992 ‘Batman Returns’ film were in for a treat as a clip of Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle/Catwoman has gone viral where she is expertly knocking the heads off mannequins with a whip while filming a scene for the Tim Burton movie — which she famously did in one take.
The clip from the film based on DC Comics was shared by Netflix social media manager Jarett Wieselman on Twitter.
“Reminder: Michelle Pfeiffer whipped the heads off those four mannequins IN ONE TAKE to thunderous applause from the Batman Returns crew,” he captioned the video, which has garnered more than 4.5 million views and 200,000 likes in just 24 hours.
Pfeiffer became the first to play a live-action version of Catwoman on the big screen in Burton’s film and is still lauded as the finest.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pfeiffer did all her own stunts with the whip in the film. The role of Batman was reprised by Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito played the iconic DC villain, The Penguin.
“She was better than her stunt people,” Burton told Rolling Stone in 1992. “She made the whip beautiful, kind of an art form.”
She truly made it an art form and we fans can really not get enough of her!
The role of Catwoman was later played by Halle Berry in “Catwoman” (2004), and Anne Hathaway in “Dark Knight Rises” (2012). Meanwhile, Zoe Kravitz is set to reprise the role in director Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” in 2022, with Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.
