1. Ana De Armas

This isn’t original, but it is perfect. Ana De Armas has quickly become one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood, and it’s easy to see why. With her stunning looks, natural charisma, and impressive range, she’s proven that she can take on any role and make it her own. And while there are many roles that she would excel in, one that has been frequently mentioned by fans is that of Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman.

De Armas came a long way from Knock Knock, in which she played a seductive houseguest who wreaks havoc on the lives of a married couple. From there, she went on to star in a pair of acclaimed films, Blade Runner 2049 and Knives Out.

It’s her performance as Marta Cabrera in Knives Out that really solidified De Armas as one of the brightest young talents in Hollywood. In the film, she played a kind-hearted nurse who gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a wealthy family. Her performance was praised for its warmth, humor, and emotional depth, and it proved that she can hold her own against some of the biggest names in the industry.

And now, De Armas is set to become an action star in her own right, with her upcoming role in the John Wick spinoff Ballerina in 2024. No Time To Die showed off her athleticism, agility, and natural grace. She’s perfectly suited to the physical demands of a role like Catwoman. And with her star quality, she would bring a level of glamour and sophistication to the character that would be reminiscent of Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway’s iconic portrayals.

Of course, there are many other actresses who could also do justice to the role of Catwoman, but there’s something about De Armas that feels especially perfect. She has the talent, the looks, and the charisma to make Selina Kyle her own, and we can only hope that someday we’ll get to see her don the iconic catsuit and bring the feline antihero to life on the big screen.
