Matt Reeves has found his Catwoman in Zoe Kravitz as the actress is currently set to bring the femme fatale to life opposite Robert Pattinson, who’s playing Batman.
Casting for The Batman is currently underway and with Robert Pattinson set to play the Caped Crusader, the hunt is on for an actress to play Catwoman. Catwoman is one the many rumored Batman rogues making an appearance in the solo flick and now we finally know who will play her. According to TheWrap, Matt Reeves has cast Zoe Kravitz as our new live-action Catwoman, confirming our report that the filmmaker was looking at a Zoe Kravitz type actress to play the iconic character.
If a deal goes through, Zoe Kravitz will join the ranks of Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway and Camren Bicondova as actresses who have played Catwoman.
The casting of Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves’ The Batman came as a surprise to many. Almost as surprising as Ben Affleck’s exit from the role after playing the DC Comics icon in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Although Robert Pattinson had been a rumored contender amongst many others including Ansel Elgort, Dylan O’Brien, Logan Lerman, Noah Centineo, Jack O’Connell, Kit Harrington, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Richard Madden, and Armie Hammer, it ultimately came down to Robert Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult, with Robert Pattinson landing the role.
Plot details for the film are still under wraps, though the project starring Robert Pattinson seems to be centered on a younger Caped Crusader as he tackles several of his more traditional enemies such as The Penguin and Catwoman. While Warner Bros. is set to restart the character’s story on the big screen, Matt Reeves has confirmed that his film will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic. Matt Reeves’ The Batman is also allegedly a full trilogy, much like the Christopher Nolan directed films with Christian Bale as Batman.
