The internet is heating up with this rumor that The Batman director Matt Reeves is looking to cast a woman of color for the role of Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne.
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.
Previously names such as Vanessa Kirby (Hobbs & Shaw) Eiza Gonzalez (From Dusk Til Dawn) and Vanessa Hudgens makes had been circulating around the role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman.
But if Reeves is intent on hiring a biracial actress I suggest actress Hayley Law who is more than just a pretty face. She has shown she can do action on Netflix’s Altered Carbon and a dramatic flair on CW’s Riverdale.
The Batman is currently slated to arrive in theaters Summer 2021.
