As of last check, the Pattinson-starring, Matt Reeves-directed film will be connected to the already established DC Extended Universe (which means Pattinson's eventual Joker would be Jared Leto's version—unless of course that part gets recast as well), and despite some rumors she might popup in one spin-off movie or another, Catwoman may be the most iconic DC character left who hasn't debuted in the franchise.
There hadn't been any rumors about the possibility before, but apparently enough people online remembered her work in Spring Breakers and thought, "Hmmm, maybe. " Of course, actors don't typically comment on social media about roles they're up for, and the last time an actress so publicly campaigned for the role of Catwoman it didn't go well. Just ask Sean Young.
With the matter of Robert Pattinson's casting as Bruce Wayne now confirmed and sorted, we can only jump to conclusions and wonder who might play the Catwoman to his Batman.
The 26-year-old actress is a charismatic yet menacing presence as the contract assassin, and the kind of twisted chemistry she shares with Sandra Oh's Eve is very reminiscent of versions of the relationship between Catwoman and Batman that have been explored over the years.
Kravitz is technically already the incumbent big screen Catwoman, in that she voiced the character in The Lego Batman Movie, but we so no reason she shouldn't be bumped up to live action status as well.
When Vanity Fair strapped her to a lie detector for a video interview, she didn't waste a second answering what comic book character she'd most like to play with Catwoman.
