Zoe Kravitz Will Play Catwoman In "The Batman"

Robert Pattinson was the only person confirmed for Matt Reeves' The Batman, but we finally know about another major star coming aboard.

According to Variety, Zoe Kravitz is set to portray Catwoman in the next Batman film, slated for a 2021 release. Reeves addressed the rumors on his Twitter page which apparently confirms Kravitz will be part of the project.

Kravitz will be the the third actress to portray Catwoman in a Batman live theatrical film. Michelle Pfeiffer portrayed the villain/Batman love interest in Batman Returns (1992), which starred Michael Keaton as the Dark Knight and Danny DeVito as Penguin.

Anne Hathaway also portrayed Selina Kyle/Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, the final film of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Interestingly, the name "Catwoman" was never mentioned in the film.

Halle Berry starred as Catwoman in the 2004, but this was not a Batman film. Despite grossing over $82 million at the box office, the film received plenty of negative reviews.

More casting announcements are sure to follow in short time. Jonah Hill has been widely rumored to portray either Penguin or the Riddler for The Batman, while Jeffrey Wright has been linked to the role of Commissioner Gordon.

Should Hill be cast as Penguin, this would mark the second live Batman action film where the character and Catwoman share the screen. Whether or not Reeves wants to recreate Tim Burton's storyline there remains to be seen.

Ben Affleck portrayed the World's Greatest Detective in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. He stepped away from The Batman, paving the way for Reeves and Pattinson to take over.

The last two Batman films received plenty of negative reactions from DC fans. The pressure is on Reeves and company to deliver a strong film, but it's certainly looking promising in the early going as he builds up a star-studded cast.
