For the first time in eight decades, Catwoman is getting her own animated movie. Early next year, Warner Bros. Animation will release Catwoman: Hunted, a new adventure written by Greg Weisman. Some of Weisman’s previous credits include Spectacular Spider-Man and Star Wars: Rebels. He also created Disney’s Gargoyles and co-created the Young Justice animated series.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, Catwoman: Hunted will be animated in an anime style. The story finds Selina Kyle making some new enemies in “a powerful consortium of villains” when she tries to steal “a priceless jewel.”
However, the criminals won’t be the only ones chasing down Selina. In addition to Interpol agents, Batwoman is also looking to bring Catwoman to justice.
Elizabeth Gillies will headline the film as Catwoman/Selina Kyle, with Stephanie Beatriz as Batwoman, and Jonathan Banks as Black Mask. The cast list also gives us some idea about which characters comprise the criminal consortium. Keith David co-stars as Tobias Whale, with Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Barbara Minerva/Cheetah, Zehra Fazal as Talia al Ghul and Nosferata, Kelly Hu as Cheshire, Steve Blum as Solomon Grundy, and Jonathan Frakes as Boss Moxie.
Frakes will also provide the voice of Interpol’s Boss Moxie, with Lauren Cohan as Julia Pennyworth, Andrew Kishino as Mr. Yakuza and Domino 6, and ric Lopez as Domino 1. Additionally, Jacqueline Obradors co-stars as La Dama, alongside Ron Yuan as Doctor Tzin.
Shinsuke Terasawa will direct Catwoman: Hunted, with Sam Register as the executive producer.
