Since its debut, "The Batman" has been praised for its immersive storytelling and impressive action sequences. The film's magnetic chemistry — not to mention a kiss scene — between Robert Pattinson (Bruce Wayne/Batman) and Zoë Kravitz (Selenia Kyle/Catwoman) have sparked fans' curiosity.
Kravitz and Pattinson actually have a 12-year friendship. In 2019, Pattinson first discussed his friendly relationship with his co-star, telling Entertainment Tonight, "Zoë's great and I've known her for years and years and years [...] she's brilliant"; meanwhile, Kravitz echoed Pattinson's sentiments to Jimmy Fallon.
Kravitz and Pattinson's camaraderie helped them conquer "The Batman's" pre-production and filming. The two told Entertainment Weekly that they both suffered from anxiety during their first screen test, but found solace in each other's support; they may be love interests on screen, but in real life, they're friendship goals.
