Batman’s new Catwoman revealed

The Catwoman role, previously played on the big screen by the likes of Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway, is an antihero within the DC Comics as well as an occasional love interest for Batman's alter ego, Bruce Wayne.

Filming is slated to begin later this year or in early 2020. The Batman will be in theatres in June 2021, Variety reports.

Pattinson took over as the Caped Crusader after Ben Affleck stepped away from the role following Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as The Justice League.

Kravitz is fresh off her second season of HBO's Big Little Lies, and she voiced Mary Jane in 2018's animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. She's also currently starring in the Fantastic Beasts franchise for Warner Bros.

A rep for Kravitz did not immediately respond to request for comment.
