We deserve an equally complex Catwoman to match wits with broody Batman.

Kravitz has played Catwoman before; she voiced the character in 2017's The LEGO Batman Movie.

Kravitz is coming off her second season of HBO's Big Little Lies, which aired its finale in July.

Rock Hall Announces Nominees for the Class of 2020
As has become tradition, the Hall of Fame has announced the individual members of each band that will be inducted . Fans can cast their vote for this new slate of inductees via Google, at Rockhall.com, or at the museum.

The cast is also set to include Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon while Jonah Hill is also in talks for an unspecified villain role.

The Aquaman actor shared an Instagram photo of him and Kravitz alongside a caption in which he said he was "so proud of her". The feline-suited adversary received her own feature film, with Halle Berry in the titular role, back in 2004. "It was like 'What does that have to do with anything?' I have to play the role like, 'Yo, what's up Batman? What's going on wit chu?'" The part in question ended up going to Juno Temple, playing a character who was friends with that movie's Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway. Kravitz was reportedly up against Baby Driver actress Eiza Gonzalez, Tomb Raider reboot star Alicia Vikander, and Emmy-nominated Atlanta actress Zazie Beetz - who's no stranger to comic book fare given her credits in Deadpool 2 and the recently released Joker. Warner Bros. has been trying to get a new standalone Bat-film off the ground for quite some time now. Thanks to an exclusive scoop by Variety, we now know which actress will portray Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson's Batman.

"The Batman" is slated to hit theaters June 25, 2021 and will be written and directed by Matt Reeves - the man behind the last two "Planet of the Apes" films.
