    She'll be starring beside Robert Pattinson, who will portray the caped-crusader himself, which has this movie already shaping up to be iconic.

    Speaking of icons, several former Catwomen(?) have come out to voice their support for Kravitz, including The Dark Knight Rises' Anne Hathaway...

    ...And — as of this today on Good Morning America, — Ms. Cool Rider herself, Michelle Pfeiffer, who had the absolute most important piece of advice for any woman who plans to dawn the ears, whiskers, and tail:

    Michelle Pfeiffer’s advice for @ZoeKravitz in her new role as #Catwoman might surprise you 🤣🤣

    Basically, when asked about any advice she could offer Kravitz, Pfeiffer — who starred as Catwoman in 1992's Batman Returns — only had one tip: Make sure you know how you're peeing, girl.

    And, honestly, Michael Strahan's face says it all:

    Pfeiffer would definitely know all about that "minor detail," given the horror stories surrounding how absolutely ridiculous her original costume was.

    For those not in the know, Pfeiffer's costume was INFAMOUS in the film realm for being incredibly difficult to get on and off. She had to have her whole body powdered to get in, and then would be covered in liquid silicone to make the costume shine.

    This made the costume a (literal) pain to remove, which left her no other choice but to wear the costume between 12 and 14 hours a day with only ONE bathroom break during lunch time.

    So uh, yeah, there ya have it. A+ advice and also — to all the costume designers out there, if you're reading this — give Kravitz's costume a bathroom/litter box-friendly design, please?
