Director Matt Reeves is eyeing a woman of color to play Selina Kyle AKA Catwoman opposite Twilight alum Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Matt Reeves is looking for a woman of color to play Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson in The Batman.
The search is officially underway for the next live-action Catwoman. The Batman director Matt Reeves is putting some feelers out to women of color for the role of the femme fatale alongside Robert Pattinson’s Batman. One source tells us Matt Reeves wants a Zoe Kravitz-type actress to play Catwoman, meaning whoever is cast will likely be Black or biracial. Zoe Kravitz was the actual choice/prototype for the Catwoman role, but is unavailable due to her busy schedule.
Vanessa Kirby was previously rumored to be in the running for the Catwoman role, but that was untrue as the actress is not what Matt Reeves is looking for. Plus, Kirby may be busy if she returns for the back-to-back Mission: Impossible sequels that are expected to begin shooting very soon. While we currently have no names for Catwoman, we fully expect to hear something official very soon.
Plot details for The Batman are being kept under wraps. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck bookending the movie as his current Batman while it introduced a younger version of the iconic character, played by Robert Pattinson. But with Ben Affleck retired from the role, Robert Pattinson has officially replaced the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League actor.
While details are slim, Matt Reeves has confirmed that his movie is not based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will emphasize the hero as the world’s greatest detective more than previous films have in the past. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new Batman trilogy with Robert Pattinson.
The Batman arrives in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Robert Pattinson, Matt Reeves, Catwoman and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
Little colored girls need to see that they too can have a slutty thieving criminal as a role model!
Michelle Pfeiffer will always be the best Catwoman tho.
