"There's a special significance for portraying Catwoman," Rivera said alongside footage of the film that features Catwoman finding a stash of money and interacting with Batman, voiced by Jensen Ackles.

"Every actress that I've ever loved has played Catwoman in some shape or form. I'm honored that I get to play it for this movie," she continued.
