Halle Berry acknowledges that some of the key issues in the Catwoman movie came to the fore while filming the DC Comics flop.
The actress Halle berry who played Storm in the movies of the X Men, also made the leap to DC Comics with Catwoman in 2004. An interpretation that earned him a razzie award, just two years after winning the Oscar for Monster’s Ball.
Catwoman revolved around the main heroine's battle against the villainous boss of a cosmetics company, but audiences did not respond well to the DC Comics adaptation, as it raised just $ 83 million on a budget of $ 100 million. On Rotten Tomatoes, it boasts a brutally low critical score of just 9%. As it happens, Halle Berry was aware that the movie was problematic during filming.
"The story didn't feel quite right," Halle Berry said in a recent interview. “I remember having that argument: 'Why can't Catwoman save the world like Batman and Superman do? Why is he only saving women from a facial cream that breaks their faces? ' She added: “But I was just the actress for hire. I was not the director. He had very little to say about it. "
16 years later it's still one of the worst DC Comics movies.
At the time, superhero movies were taking off thanks to Spider-Man and the X-Men, so they made some other movies that didn't do well at all and almost cost the comic book adaptations popularity. Catwoman by Halle Berry, Daredevil by Ben Affleck or Elektra Jennifer Garner's hit rock bottom, both in critics and gross.
Luckily, the movie studios continued to invest in these movies and soon they released Batman Begins, more X-Men movies and in 2008 came Iron Man that started the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
