It all started with a rumor that director Matt Reeves wanted a woman of color to take on the role of Catwoman in his highly anticipated The Batman Project, starring Robert Pattinson. Then, singer Kehlani stepped in with her own suggestion…

However, there were some other names tossed around as many questioned whether Taylor had the acting chops to pull off the iconic role, once played by Halle Berry. Here’s a list of contenders that would also nail it…
Word on the street is that Zoe was Reeves’ first choice. According to a new rumor from Heroic Hollywood, “Reeves has put out some feelers to several women for the role, and a source says that he wants to find someone like Zoe Kravitz to play the role. Kravitz would have been cast in the part already if not for her busy schedule, so now it’s up to Reeves and the casting division to find someone else to fill the role.”
everybody wants teyana taylor to play cat woman for her looks but let’s be honest, we need a great experienced actor for a new catwoman! and zoe saldana is HER!

I keep seeing folks RT Kehlani’s tweet about making Teyana Taylor Catwoman lol like Honey: Rise Up and Dance wasn’t a thing. 🙃
Albeit, a very talented singer, dancer, and of course she would look STUNNING in the suit….
I say Logan Browning would be great in that role.
