Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has provided ComicBook with a new clip from Catwoman: Hunted, the upcoming animated film starring Elizabeth Gillies (Dynasty) and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine). The anime-inspired film sees Catwoman taking center stage in a feature film that doesn't have Batman in it at all (although characters like Batwoman, Talia al Ghul, and Black Mask do make appearances). It's a heist movie at heart, with Selina setting out to steal a cat-themed gem -- with no Inspector Clouseau in sight! In the clip, which you can see above, Selina Kyle leaves behind a Golden Age version of the Catwoman costume, and suits up for her heist.
Producer Ethan Spaulding recently told ComicBook that working with OLM animation in Japan, the filmmakers ended up having to shoot down some pretty cool variations on Catwoman's outfit, since this was the first opportunity the animators had to work on a DC project, and they wanted to impress.
"There's a little bit of leeway in her design, for sure," Spaulding said. "In this, we kept it kind of classic. Kind of the Darwyn Cooke suit with the goggles. After we started working on this, I looked at the recent comic books and I really liked the designs in that and I thought, 'Oh, man, we should have maybe tried that one,' but this is, I think, perfect for our story."
You can see the official synopsis below.
In the all-new original Catwoman: Hunted, Catwoman's attempt to steal a priceless jewel puts her squarely in the crosshairs of both a powerful consortium of villains and the ever-resourceful Interpol, not to mention Batwoman. It might just be enough to contain her. Or not.
