Zoe Kravitz landed the role of Catwoman in The Batman after rigorous auditions.
The Big Little Lies star is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. The 30 year old had to audition alongside Ana de Armas, Ella Balinska and Eiza González for the part. She was chosen for the role after her screen test with Pattinson.
Kravitz has also starred in movies and TV shows such as the upcoming Hulu show High Fidelity, Divergent series and Mad Max: Fury Road.
The upcoming Batman movie is a new take on the superhero. Creator Matt Reeves wants to bring a more grounded Batman to the forefront. He is known for his other movies such as Cloverfield and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Reeves told The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.”
The movie will start production this year or early in 2020. It will be released in the summer of 2021. The movie follows the success of Joker, which has made $548 million since its release on October 4.
The cast of the movie possibly also includes Jeffrey Wright and Jonah Hill in the villain role.
Kravitz has not yet released a public statement about her landing the role in the highly anticipated upcoming superhero movie.
