Zoe Kravitz is going from Monterey to Gotham City, where she’s probably going to face just as many big little lies in The Batman. Kravitz has officially been cast as Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader, Warner Bros. confirms.
Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman, is a cat burglar and longtime love interest of Bruce Wayne, previously played by Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns (1992), Halle Berry in Catwoman (2004) and Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises (2012). Funnily enough, Kravitz voiced the character in 2017’s The Lego Batman Movie.
Director Matt Reeves acknowledged Kravitz’s casting on Twitter:
Hathaway also took to social media to praise Kravitz’s casting news. “The biggest congrats to @zoeisabellakravitz on landing the role of a lifetime. Well, one life anyway… Enjoy the ride, Selena,” she wrote on Instagram.
Kravitz’s stepdad, Aquaman star Jason Momoa, meanwhile, shared his excitement about Kravitz joining the DC family, writing, “I’m so proud of u zozo bear Lola and Wolfies big sister is CAT WOMAN 😍😍😍 Unbelievable so freaking stoked. Your going to have so much fun.”
The Batman is a new take from the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes helmer that will focus on a younger Bruce Wayne as “the world’s greatest detective.” Jeffrey Wright and Jonah Hill are reportedly in talks to co-star as Commissioner Gordon and a yet-to-be-revealed villain, respectively.
The Batman is set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
