Actor Zoe Kravitz has been roped in to play Catwoman, an antiheroine and sometime love interest of the Caped Crusader, in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman.
Kravitz will star opposite Robert Pattinson as Batman.
The movie’s director, Matt Reeves, seemingly confirmed the reports in the same way he did when there were reports that Pattinson would play Batman — Reeves tweeted.
