‘The Batman’ director Matt Reeves is looking to cast a woman of color for the role of Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, according to a new report.
via Heroic Hollywood:
The search is officially underway for the next Catwoman. The Batman helmer 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 the actress is not available due to her busy schedule.
Vanessa Kirby was previously rumored to be in the running for the Catwoman role, but that was untrue as she 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 should begin filming very soon. While we currently have no names for Catwoman, we fully expect to hear something official very soon.
Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman would be rather interesting. Teyana Taylor might make a nice Catwoman too. Who would you like to see fill the role?
