Director Matt Reeves, who is reintroducing Batman into the DC Films Universe with Robert Pattinson has just found his Catwoman!
When the casting type went out it was said Reeves was looking for a Zoe Kravitz-esque actress but I don’t think he ever anticipated he would land the Big Little Lies actress.
Reeves took over the directing gig after Ben Affleck stepped away from the role. Affleck was also expected to play Batman again but then said he would be hanging up the cape for good. Reeves has since described the film as a “defining” and “very personal” story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story in the vein of Frank Miller’s beloved “Year One” series.
Kravitz will be the second POC to portray Catwoman on the big screen since Halle Berry’s ill-fated Catwoman solo film.
“The Batman” will be released on June 25, 2021.
