Zoe Kravitz has reservations about recommencing filming The Batman, due to restrictions enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Big Little Lies star, 31, is playing Catwoman in the latest reboot of the super hero franchise, and is concerned about how hair, make-up and wardrobe will be navigated when social distancing is still in place.
”You have people just touching your face, touching your body all day long. I need help getting into the catsuit. I can’t do it on my own,” she told Variety.
Zoe – who had already begun work on the movie before lockdown halted film production globally – added: ”I was probably touched more than any job, just because of the clothes and the combat and all of that.”
Zoe plays the iconic villain – played by the likes of Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry in past films – alongside Robert Pattinson as Batman and Colin Farrell as The Penguin.
And Colin has revealed he can’t wait to get back to filming on the hotly anticipated next chapter in the iconic franchise, once lockdown ends.
The In Bruges actor, 43, told the GMA News Network: ”It’s all exciting. To be a part of that universe and just there are certain words that are part of my internal lexicon: Gotham City, Penguin, Joker, Batman, Bruce Wayne, Harvey Dent, all these things.” The Gentleman actor also discussed his admiration for director Christopher Nolan (who directed The Dark Knight).
He said: ”Obviously I was a huge fan of what Chris Nolan did with that world and how he brought it back to life and gave it an immediacy and a contemporary significance so just to be part of that mythology is again really cool.”
Talking about how he is yearning to get back to filming he said: ”I had only started it and I can’t wait to get back. The creation of it, the aesthetic of the character, has been fun and I really am so excited to get back and explore it, it feels original and fun.”
While discussing the coronavirus lockdown Colin revealed that he had to spend two weeks at home alone while his two children Henry Tadeusz, 10, and James Padraig, 16, were with their mothers.
He said that what he noticed most was the absence of touch and realised that human touch was a sign of tenderness and affection.
