Zoë Kravitz has been cast as Catwoman in the forthcoming Batman film, which is set to star Robert Pattinson as the masked superhero.
Kravitz got the role this past weekend after reading lines with Pattinson against three other candidates, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Director Matt Reeves appeared to confirm the news on social media after tweeting a GIF of Kravitz answering a cell phone, saying “hello.”
