Latest "The Batman" Rumor Suggests Matt Reeves Wants Black Actress for Catwoman

Matt Reeves is looking for a woman of color to play Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson in The Batman.

The search is officially underway for the next live-action Catwoman. The Batman director 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 is unavailable due to her busy schedule.

Vanessa Kirby was previously rumored to be in the running for the Catwoman role, but that was untrue as the actress 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 are expected to begin shooting very soon. While we currently have no names for Catwoman, we fully expect to hear something official very soon.

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under wraps. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck book-ending the movie as his current Batman while it introduced a younger version of the iconic character, played by Robert Pattinson. But with Ben Affleck retired from the role, Robert Pattinson has officially replaced the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League star as Batman.

While details are slim, Matt Reeves has confirmed that his movie is not based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will emphasize the hero as the world’s greatest detective more than previous films have in the past. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new Batman trilogy with Robert Pattinson.

The Batman arrives in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Robert Pattinson, Matt Reeves, Catwoman and the future of the DC Extended Universe.

According to a new report, there’s a reason that so many villains have been rumored for Matt Reeves‘ The Batman. There’s a conspiracy in Gotham City, and everyone is a suspect.

According to well-known scooper Daniel Richtman, when Robert Pattinson suits up as Batman, he will be trying to get to the bottom of a case revolving around strange murders. As the caped crusader digs deeper into the mystery it will send him to various villains around the city, and each will give him a piece of info that sends him to the next. Currently, the villains are set to be Penguin, Riddler, Mad Hatter, Catwoman, Firefly, and Two-Face.

As with any rumor this far ahead, it should be taken with some suspicion for the time being. It does, however, fit in with a lot of what we have heard such as Reeves wanting to do more of a noir detective story. It also matches up with the members of the Rogues Gallery that we’ve heard are due to appear. And certainly not least, Richtman has a good track record.

While The Batman is certainly starting to come together, there is still a long road ahead of it. Filming is expected to begin this winter in the U.K., and that is eons away in Hollywood production time. Things can change at any time, but this seems like a logical conclusion of the numerous rumors we’ve heard. We’ll just have to wait and see.

The Batman will hit theaters on June 25, 2021.

This film is about to serve the Noir everyone has been waiting for and the very sexy beginning of Bat and Cat. Asshole tightens thinking about how it is time for a black woman to take the mantle again.
