Zoe Kravitz is Catwoman in The Batman
Catwoman details in The Batman are slim, but the character was previously rumored to be a villain along with Penguin, Riddler, Mad Hatter, Firefly and Two Face.
I exclusively revealed that director Matt Reeves would be using more villains than the rumored six and would be in part adapting the DC Comics "The Long Halloween" storyline, which Kevin Smith confirmed as well.
"The Long Halloween" comic book sees Falcone trying to get Bruce Wayne to launder money, which Bruce refuses, so he goes off to investigate as Batman and discovers Catwoman, his on/off girlfriend, is investigating as well.
The Batman has a June 25, 2021 release date starring Robert Pattinson as the titular character, Jeffrey Wright as Jim Gordon, Jonah Hill in talks for a villain role; said to be Penguin or Riddler, with the plot of the movie rumored to be exploring a detective case where people start dying in strange ways so Batman must go deep into the dark world of Gotham City to find the clues and solve the mystery/conspiracy connected to Gotham City's history and criminals.
