Zoë Kravitz, 30, is suiting up as the next Catwoman in Matt Reeves' The Batman movie, our sister website Variety reported on October 14! About two months ago, it was confirmed that the brilliant helmer of War For the Planet of the Apes had cast Robert Pattinson in the role of Gotham's Dark Knight. The final four are said to have been Ana de Armas, Ella Balinska, Eiza Gonzalez, and Kravitz.
Warner Bros. did not immediately confirm the casting announcement to CBS News.
Other actresses who have played Catwoman include Eartha Kitt, Halle Berry, Michelle Pfeiffer, Julie Newmar, Jennifer Carpenter, Sanaa Lathan, Eliza Dushku, and Camren Bicondova.
Robert Pattinson is toplining the cast as the popular DC Comics superhero, with actor Jeffrey Wright set to portray his ally, Commissioner Gordon.
Anne Hathaway was the most recent actress to don the catsuit in Christopher Nolan's 2012 film "The Dark Knight Rises", opposite Christian Bale's Batman.
Quite how we'll see her bring Catwoman to life remains to be seen, but it sounds like we're going to get a more grounded take on the character. She also stars in the upcoming series High Fidelity. The actress actually voiced Catwoman in The Lego Batman Movie, an animated movie released in 2017! And she has previously played a Marvel character; she was Angel in X-Men: First Class.
The Batman flies into theaters on June 25, 2021. He's married to Lisa Bonet, Kravitz's mother, which technically makes Aquaman Catwoman's stepfather.
