Matt Reeves’ upcoming trilogy The Batman just keeps looking more and more promising as details continue to emerge.


The first surprising news of the production was that Robert Pattinson would be taking on the title role. In recent weeks, several other exciting reports have surfaced including some stating that Jonah Hill has been in talks to come in as either the Penguin and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) was being eyed for Commissioner Gordon.

While their is still no confirmation on either of the above actors roles in the film - we do have one major character confirmed.


Catwoman.


We’ve seen Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway amongst others - portraying the iconic character in the past - but Zoë Kravitz will be taking on the role this time around.


Appearing in some impressive titles including Mad Max: Fury Road and the hit HBO series Big Little Lies, Kravitz has quite the résumé to prove she’s more than fit for the role.


While Kravitz’s familiar name will leave many associating her with her father - musician Lenny Kravitz - her stepfather, Jason Momoa, has plenty of reason to be jumping with excitement as he is no stranger to the DC Universe; we all know him as Aquaman in Justice League and the hugely successful standalone film, Aquaman (to which a sequel is in the works for).

"I’m so proud of u zozo bear. On and off screen OHANA. DC WB ohana Lola and Wolfies big sister is CAT WOMAN😍😍😍 Unbelievable so freaking stoked. Your going to have so much fun Aloha P bear"

The world of social media has also praised the studio in their casting choice so what do you think about Zoë Kravitz coming in as Catwoman? Will she and Pattinson be a good duo?


Let us know in the comments below!


The Batman will be hitting theaters June 25, 2021.
