The cat’s outta the bag — Zoe Kravitz is enjoying Catwoman within the new Batman film … which is attention-grabbing, contemplating she was allegedly too “urban” for Christopher Nolan‘s take.
The information broke Monday, with a number of retailers reporting that Zoe had landed the position after testing out some scenes final week reverse heartthrob Robert Pattinson — who’s donning the cowl subsequent in Matt Reeves‘ “The Batman” … which is hitting theaters in 2021.
The ironic factor about Zoe’s casting right here is that she informed Nylon again in 2015 that she couldn’t even get an audition for Nolan’s final Batman flick, “The Dark Knight Rises,” which she attributed to her race. That’s not out of the clear blue sky both.
Zoe mentioned she was principally blocked from even studying for a small position within the film, allegedly being informed that any individual had mentioned they weren’t “going urban” with the final installment.
It’s unclear what precisely that even means, or what position Zoe was attempting to nab on the time — however this has gotta be the final word revenge, proper??? BTW, Anne Hathaway performed Catwoman in Nolan’s model — however there’s been a few black girls who’ve portrayed the character.
Perhaps most famously, Halle Berry performed Catwoman within the self-titled 2004 flick. Another actress was Eartha Kitt, who performed Catwoman within the outdated “Batman” TV collection from again within the ’60s. She starred reverse Adam West … which was fairly groundbreaking in these days.
Now, it seems like Zoe’s gonna have a crack on the position — and primarily based on what we’ve seen from her through the years within the drama division, she’ll in all probability kill it.
