DC tries out anime art style with the trailer for ‘Catwoman: Hunted’
The recent 2021 DC Fandome has given fans a lot to be excited about as updates and trailers were released for much of DC’s media, most notably for The Batman with Robert Pattinson, Black Adam with the Rock, and Peacemaker with John Cena.
With all the hype that comes with big DC movie announcements, comes some hidden gems that get the superhero nerds interested. One of those gems seems to be a trailer released for a new upcoming animated movie called ‘Catwoman: Hunted’. Take a look below:
The Warner Bros. Youtube channel provides the movie synopsis:
“In the all-new original ‘Catwoman: Hunted’, Catwoman’s attempt to steal a priceless jewel puts her squarely in the crosshairs of both a powerful consortium of villains and the ever-resourceful Interpol, not to mention Batwoman. It might just be enough to contain her. Or not.”
DC has always been the master of animated films and shows, with series like Batman Beyond gaining much praise from critics. However, ‘Catwoman: Hunted’ features an attractive anime art style that is distinctly different from other DC animated media.
It’s interesting to note how more and more western media has been dabbling in the Japanese anime art style, with ‘Catwoman: Hunted’ being the perfect example for that. It seems that studios have started to notice the numerous anime fans worldwide and seem to want to appeal to them.
Fans reacted to the unique art style on social media.

The trailer also gives us a sneak peek of Elizabeth Gillies voice acting as the titular Catwoman, and many would agree that she captured that purr-fect Catwoman vibe.
Fans on social media definitely love Gillies as Catwoman.
