‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Star Vanessa Kirby On Potentially Playing Catwoman In ‘The Batman’

Hobbs & Shaw star Vanessa Kirby addressed those recent rumors of Matt Reeves eyeing her to play Catwoman in The Batman.

Matt Reeves’  upcoming film is rumored to have a rogue’s gallery for the first time in a Batman film. One of those rogues that have been heavily rumored is Catwoman. If Catwoman does appear in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, it would mark the fourth time she has appeared in a Batman film. Of course, Catwoman has been previously played by Julie Newmar, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Anne Hathaway. Matt Reeves already has his new Batman in Robert Pattinson and casting news of who will be playing the rogues could be happening soon.

One name that has been floated around for Catwoman is Hobbs & Shaw star Vanessa Kirby. The actress had a breakout role in Mission: Impossible – Fallout and it’s rumored that Matt Reeves is looking at her to play the next Catwoman. At the Hobbs & Shaw LA premiere, Entertainment Weekly asked Vanessa Kirby about those Catwoman rumors:

“I don’t know anything about it.”

However, Vanessa Kirby seemed enthusiastic about potentially playing the role:

“Are you kidding?! I would love to be Catwoman. Oh my god, it would be a dream.”

But feels she needs some preparation first:

“Oh my god, are you kidding? I have to do lots of squats. I mean, literally, lots of squats.”

Do you think Vanessa Kirby would be a good casting choice for Catwoman? Who would you cast? Comment below!

Here is the synopsis for Hobbs & Shaw:

“A spinoff of The Fate of the Furious, focusing on Johnson’s US Diplomatic Security Agent Luke Hobbs forming an unlikely alliance with Statham’s Deckard Shaw.”

The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vanessa Kirby, Eddie Marsan, Eiza Gonzalez and Idris Elba.

Hobbs & Shaw will hit theaters August 2, 2019.

The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
