Matt Reeves Batman film is currently in pre-production and outside of the casting of Robert Pattinson as the titular character, not much else has been credibly reported so far. As fans await the next casting announcement for the film, there have been some unconfirmed castiung reports. Those reports have said that Reeves might be looking to cast Jamie Foxx, Giancarlo Esposito and John David Washington in undisclosed roles. There was even a rumor that Paul Walter Hauser (I,Tonya) might be eyed to play the Penguin.
A new report from Heroic Hollywood suggests that Matt will be looking for a POC actress who is a Zoe Kravitz type for the role of Catwoman. The article mentions the rumor about Vanessa Kirby being eyed but they say that was never true to begin with. Zoe is someone Matt wanted to cast but she is unavailable due to her schedule. HH speculates that because Reeves wanted Kravitz that he might be looking for an african American or biracial female but a POC actress is not limited to just that speculation. Fans have clamored for Eiza Gonzalez and Ana de Armas to be cast as Catwoman. I have seen some even mention Vanessa Hudgens for the role.
All are terrific actresses and whomever Matt chooses I am sure will be the right choice. Hopefully we get some casting news soon and more details about that very tight lipped script.
