This will actually be the second time she picks up the villain/occasional Batman ally’s signature whip, albeit the first time in live-action. In 2017, Kravitz lent her voice to animated-minifigure!Catwoman in The LEGO Batman Movie.
While the news has yet to be officially confirmed (depending on your definition of “officially”), director Matt Reeves did tweet a GIF of Kravitz saying “hello” when the news broke.

Previously, it was reported that Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright and Maniac’s Jonah Hill were being tapped to play Commissioner Gordon and an as-yet-undisclosed villain, respectively. Now, Deadline reports that Wright will be playing Gordon, while Hill is still “in talks” for his role.
The Batman is due to be released on June 25, 2021, according to Deadline.
