Don’t you love it when you’re at work and the internet goes nuts over Zoe Kravitz joining Rob in The Batman. News broke today that Zoe Kravitz will be Catwoman aka Selina Kyle in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Matt Reeves joined in by confirming with this tweet:

From Variety:

Big Little Lies” star Zoe Kravitz has been tapped to play Catwoman, the antiheroine and sometime love interest of the Caped Crusader, in Matt Reeves’ upcoming “The Batman.”

Kravitz will star opposite Robert Pattinson as Batman.
In recent weeks, the role came down to Kravitz, Zazie Beetz of “Atlanta,” “Deadpool 2” and “Joker,” “Baby Driver’s” Eiza Gonzalez and Oscar winner Alicia Vikander. Ultimately, Kravitz won out, despite some worry about scheduling issues with “Fantastic Beasts.”

Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer. No official start date has been set, although insiders tell Variety that filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020. “The Batman” is scheduled to hit theaters June 25, 2021.

From THR who confirm that Jeffrey Wright is Commissioner Gordon:

Matt Reeves and Warner Bros.’ upcoming The Batman has found its Catwoman: Zoe Kravitz has nabbed the role of one of the highest-profile members of the Caped Crusader’s rogue’s gallery, according to several sources.

The decision came down over the weekend after a rigorous testing process that saw saw Ana de Armas, Ella Balinska, Eiza Gonzalez and Kravitz read with Robert Pattinson, who is set to play the Dark Knight. The testing process occurred over the first week of the month, and the four were then narrowed to two late last week.

Reeves is directing what is described as a grounded take with a large rogue’s gallery as the antagonists. Jeffrey Wright is already on board as Batman ally Commissioner Jim Gordon.

And if IndieWire is correct not only is Jeffrey Wright confirmed as Commissioner Gordon but Jonah Hill will be one of the villains, be it The Penguin or The Riddler:

Kravitz will star opposite Robert Pattinson, who is set to play Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Jonah Hill, who boarded the project last month in an unspecified villain role. Rumor has it Hill is being courted play either The Penguin (previously played by Danny DeVito in “Batman Returns”) or The Riddler (Jim Carrey in “Batman Forever).
“The Batman” is being directed by “War for the Planet of the Apes” filmmaker Matt Reeves. While the plot of the movie is being kept under wraps, Reeves has been vocal about the movie centering on a younger version of the Batman character. The film is not expected to be an origin story like Christopher Nolan’s “Batman Begins.” As Kravitz and Hill’s casting confirms, “The Batman” will use various characters from the Batman comic book series. More familiar names are expected to be cast in the future.
