Zoe Kravitz nabs role of Catwoman in The Batman

Matt Reeves confirmed the news with a tweet of Kravitz.

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.

Zoe Kravitz has been cast as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Warner Bros.'s The Batman, according to The Wrap.

Twilight alum Robert Pattinson is officially Ben Affleck's Batman successor, and we can't help but imagine how the next incarnation of the DC Comics icon will look like on the big screen.

"The harm will come when private interests circumvent professional diplomats for their own gain, not the public good", she said . She will likely be asked about USA military aid to Ukraine and details about the administration's decision to withhold that aid.

Other cast members for the film include Jeffrey Wright who is in talks for the role of Commissioner Gordon and Jonah Hill who will star as a villain in the film (though which one is unclear). Just a guess. At the same time, Reeves has gone on record saying this won't be yet another origin story, and will likely pick up with the Dark Knight while he's already in the midst of his crime-fighting career. For instance, Batman: Year One sees Selina get her start helping sex workers, and Selina's motives in The Dark Knight Rises are more steal to survive than cause any real damage.

Kravitz's casting is pitch-perfect, and there's also a bit of irony here. "What's going on wit chu?'" The part in question ended up going to Juno Temple, playing a character who was friends with that movie's Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway.

Mattson Tomlin and Reeves co-wrote the script.

Kravitz boasts a big resume with feature credits that include Mad Max Fury Road, the Fantastic Beasts franchise, the Divergent franchise, X-Men: First Class, and the The Lego Batman Movie in which she played...yes, Catwoman (and all Batman fans know who Kyle is). Affleck later stepped away from directing the project but was still said to be starring in the film. If Matt Reeves and WB feel that Kravitz is the best person for the job in The Batman, then we should trust them.
