Zoe Kravitz to Play Catwoman in The Batman!

"It's kind of insane", the Twilight star recently shared with Esquire U.K. about landing the Dark Knight role.

Minor internet backlash be damned: Robert Pattinson is a ideal Batman, totally able to pull off the brooding mystery required of the character without ever falling into self-parody. Reeves' Planet of the Apes collaborator Dylan Clark will produce.

The Big Little Lies actress is set to star alongside Robert Pattinson, who is playing the Caped Crusader. Also confirmed as cast so far as production ramps up is Westworld's Jeffrey Wright in the role of Batman's long-time ally Police Commissioner Jim Gordon. The trilogy is said to involved several villains, so who know if Kravitz's Catwoman will be one of them.

The cast of Matt Reeves' The Batman just got a little more purr-fect. The character has been played by Michelle Pfeiffer in Tim Burton's Batman Returns, Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan's grounded and realistic The Dark Knight Rises and Halle Berry in a movie that I wish I could permanently wipe out from my mind.

Over 200 first responders, including coast guard divers and military personnel, arrived at the scene to search for survivors. At least 12 people were injured, the Yilan County Fire Bureau said, with rescue operations continuing in the evening.


The Batman has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2015 when Ben Affleck signed on to the DCEU.

The Batman is slated for release in 2021.

For a while now, I told BOF readers "After JOKER" when asked when we might hear the next round of THE BATMAN casting news. And she's actually also been Catwoman before as she voiced the character in The Lego Batman Movie. She will next be seen in Hulu's reimagined take on High Fidelity. Affleck departed his role as Batman following Justice League, allowing Reeves to pick his own Bruce Wayne.

Actor Jonah Hill has also been linked to the upcoming film.
