Taking on the role of the new Catwoman, she was able to hold her own with Robert Pattinson, as he took over the role of Batman, and finished up as one of the best Catwoman actresses in franchise history. This should also open things up for people to rediscover Kravitz.

The actress is young, but she has been acting for a long time, as part of Hollywood royalty – the daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. She is also someone with a solid list of films to her name, from romantic comedies to sci-fi thrillers to deep dark dramas. Now that she has two different superhero movies under her belt, she might be able to write her own ticket for the future.

Honorable Mentions

The Road Within (2014) – 45%

Zoe Kravitz in The Road Within.

Streaming on Prime Video and Peacock.

In 2014, Zoë Kravitz co-starred in The Road Within, a movie where Robert Sheehan starred as a man with Tourette’s syndrome who takes a road trip to take his late mother’s ashes to the ocean. On the trip, he brings his roommate, who has OCD, and an anorexic woman (Kravitz).

The critics praised the portrayal of a man with Tourette’s syndrome, but say the movie doesn’t really go deep into the ideas behind the story. However, other critics praised it as a character study, albeit cliched.

Rough Night (2017) – 45%

The cast of Rough Night.

In 2017, Zoë Kravitz was part of an all-star cast in a female-centric raunchy comedy. The movie is Rough Night and follows a group of friends out on a bachelorette weekend in Miami. However, when a male stripper dies at the party, they set out to cover it up.

The cast includes Scarlet Johansson, Kate McKinnon, and Jillian Bell, and Kravitz matches up well with her more experienced co-stars. While most critics said the movie doesn’t match up to other female comedies of its era, others praised the talented cast for bringing the laughs.

The Greatest (2009) – 53%

Streaming now on Prime Video.

The Greatest was a relatively early Zoë Kravitz movie role, although her character was low on the rankings of importance in this one. The movie is a melodrama, with Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon as grief-stricken parents who meet a woman (Carey Mulligan) who is carrying the child of their late son, Bennett.

Kravitz plays Ashley, a girl in a grief support group that reaches out to Ryan, the younger brother of Bennett. Critics called it a meditation on loss, a well-performed tearjerker by all involved.

There are some sticky situations, and some clear roadblocks to overcome, and this is a cute and different movie to tune in to.

The Batman (2022) – 85%

Zoë Kravitz is the latest person to play Catwoman in a live-action Batman release. She brings something different to the character, skewing the sex appeal of Michelle Pfeiffer for the more serious action-oriented Catwoman of Anne Hathaway. Despite this, she still shows a bit of the Eartha Kitt Catwoman in her performance as well.

Critics and fans alike loved The Batman, scoring it at 85% and 88% respectively on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics praised Matt Reeves’ direction but also credited the cast – especially Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, and Jeffrey Wright.

Again, Zoë isn’t a lead in this one, but it’s still one of the best projects she’s been a part of. This is a hidden gem that’s worth seeking out.

The Lego Batman Movie (2017) – 90%

Kravitz stars as Angela, an agoraphobic tech worker who discovers recorded evidence of a violent crime, but who is mostly ignored when she reports it.

She now has to do the one thing she fears the most – leave her apartment – to find justice. This is a Steven Soderbergh movie and critics praised his direction, above all else. However, Kravitz gets credit as well as she plays a modern version of a Hitchcock heroine.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse (2018) – 97%

Mary Jane in Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse.

Rent now on Prime Video And Apple TV+.

Zoë Kravitz is the voice of Mary Jane in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but other voices include Shameik Moore (who is also in Dope), Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, and Nicolas Cage.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) – 97%

Streaming now on HBO Max.

This film is a critically-acclaimed, Academy Award-winning sci-fi thriller. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where a woman decides to rebel against a tyrannical ruler and begins her search for her homeland. With the help of female prisoners, an expendable soldier, and a drifter named Max, it’s a wild ride.

Tom Hardy is Max, Charlize Theron is the rebel, and Zoë Kravitz is one of the female prisoners. Spoiler: there’s a lot of driving, but it’s also a sublime visual experience, and it’s pretty intense.
