Michelle Pfeiffer would've jumped at a solo Catwoman movie, 'in a heartbeat'

In 1992, Michelle Pfeiffer starred as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, in Tim Burton's Batman Returns, and she pretty much stole the show. Her stunning portrayal of the iconic character is still memorable 25 years later. It turns out Pfeiffer loved the role just as much as the rest of us, and almost starred in a solo Catwoman movie in the 1990s.

In a recent interview with The New York Times to promote Murder on the Orient Express, Pfeiffer nostalgically discussed her time as Catwoman, saying that she would've loved to portray the character again in a Catwoman movie.

"Are you kidding me? In a heartbeat. I loved that part. I felt like I was just getting comfortable and getting used to the claws and the mask, just figuring out how to move in all of that."

So now that we're all wishing we could see her as Catwoman again, Pfeiffer also dropped this tidbit of info, claiming she actually almost had a solo film of her own back in the '90s:

"There was a little bit of talk about that, then that kind of faded away."

As if we didn't have reason enough to be nostalgic about, it's fun to consider just what a solo Catwoman film starring Pfeiffer, possibly directed by Burton, could've been, and how different it might've looked from Halle Berry's Razzie-winning 2004 turn.
