The Batman casts Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman
Matt Reeves’ Batman franchise reboot has found its Catwoman.
Big Little Lies star Zoe Kravitz has landed the role of Selina Kyle a.k.a. The Cat in his upcoming film The Batman, Warner Bros. confirms. This is also the first time the studio has revealed the character is in the film. Kravitz has, curiously enough, actually played the character once before, in 2017’s The Lego Batman Movie.
On the big screen, the role of Kyle/Catwoman was most recently played by on the big screen by Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises, and before that by Halle Berry in a 2004 stand-alone Catwoman film, and Michelle Pfeiffer in Tim Burton’s 1992’s Batman Returns.
The Batman will begin shooting in January in the U.K. and is expected to arrive in theaters June 25, 2021.
