Catwoman actress Zoë Kravitz has praised Robert Pattinson in DC Superhero film, The Batman, calling him the perfect actor for the role.
The Batman is a film that has had something of a rocky production. Originally it was set to be a solo film co-written, directed by, and starring Ben Affleck in the DC Extended Universe. Unfortunately, at some point, Ben Affleck lost his passion for the role and began to question how it would affect his sobriety and gradually passed his duties to writer/writer Matt Reeves and actor Robert Pattinson. The Batman co-star Zoë Kravitz recently praised the decision to cast the former Twilight star in the role.
Last year it was revealed that Zoë Kravitz would be portraying Catwoman in The Batman. It is currently unknown what part Catwoman will be playing in the film’s overall plot but the actress is excited to be working alongside Robert Pattinson. During a recent interview with Variety, she went as far to call Pattinson the perfect actor to play the part:
“Good question. First of all, he’s just a really good actor. He started out as this kind of teen pop sensation, and then I think we all kind of saw through his work that there was a lot more going on. He’s a really interesting artist, and that is very much Batman in a way. We have the illusion of Bruce Wayne, and then we have Batman in the shadows that has a lot more complicated things going on. So just in that, I think he’s perfect for this role. He can relate in that way, and he looks good in the suit, man. He looks good in the suit. That’s a good jaw line. But he’s just a great actor and he brings so much to everything he does. I think that it’s a really hard role because people are expecting a lot. Also it’s restricting in a lot of ways. You’re wearing the suit, and you can’t see their eyes, and you can only move in a certain way. So you have to get really creative in terms of how can you portray a multidimensional character? He’s way up for the challenge and has really interesting ideas already. I think he’s perfect, perfect casting.
