Black Cat was actually intended to be a villain for Spider-Woman rather than Spider-Man. Marv Wolfman was writing the Spider-Woman title in 1979, starring Jessica Drew, one of the best alternate versions of Spider-Woman. Black Cat was meant to appear in that book, but then Wolfman left and transferred over to The Amazing Spider-Man, making her first appearance in issue #194.

Banks, who is perhaps best known as the imposing Mike Ehrmantraut in Breaking Bad and its spin-off series Better Call Saul, is just the latest in a long line of actors who have brought the iconic Batman villain to life in both live-action and animation. While many DC fans will now indelibly connect the role with Ewan McGregor, who played him in the DCEU’s Birds of Prey, he has also most recently been portrayed by Canadian actor Peter Outerbridge on the second season of The CW’s Batwoman. DC fans will have the chance to judge how well Banks’ deep-toned vocals suit the fan-favorite Gotham crime-lord when Catwoman: Hunted arrives early next month.
