The details surrounding The Batman are still a bit scarce. What we do know is which actors are playing some of the DC Comics’ franchises most iconic characters. And Zoe Kravitz, who’s slipping into Selina Kyle’s iconic catsuit for Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, has opened up about why she’s excited to play Catwoman.

She joins an elite list of women, including Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway, to bring the sophisticated villain to the big screen.

As for what we can expect to see in The Batman? She’s pretty quiet on that front, though she was sporting the pixie cut she says she got specifically for her role. Zoe Kravitz did give a small hint as to why she was drawn to Matt Reeves’ film, though:

Zoe Kravitz will star alongside Robert Pattinson, Paul Dano, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jeffrey Wright, who recently tweeted that he was on his way to start filming his part in the movie. The Batman hits theaters on June 25, 2021.
