The Batman director Matt Reeves is looking to cast a woman of color for the role of Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne.
The search is officially underway for the next Catwoman. The Batman helmer Matt Reeves is putting some feelers out to women of color for the role of the femme fatale alongside Robert Pattinson’s Batman. One source tells us Matt Reeves wants a Zoe Kravitz-type actress to play Catwoman, meaning whoever is cast will likely be Black or biracial. Zoe Kravitz was the actual choice/prototype for the Catwoman role, but the actress is not available due to her busy schedule.
Vanessa Kirby was previously rumored to be in the running for the Catwoman role, but that was untrue as she is not what Matt Reeves is looking for. Plus, Kirby may be busy if she returns for the back-to-back Mission: Impossible sequels that should begin filming very soon. While we currently have no names for Catwoman, we fully expect to hear something official very soon.

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under lock and key. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck bookending the movie as his current Batman while it introduced a younger version of the iconic character, played by Robert Pattinson. But with Ben Affleck retired from the role, Robert Pattinson has officially replaced the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League star as Batman.
While details are slim, Matt Reeves has confirmed that his upcoming movie featuring Robert Pattinson is not based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will emphasize the hero as the world’s greatest detective more than previous films have in the past. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new Batman movie trilogy with Robert Pattinson.
The Batman arrives in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Robert Pattinson, Matt Reeves, Catwoman and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
