Top 5 Candidates To Play Catwoman in Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN
2. Zazie Beetz
At just 27 years of age, Zazie Beetz has already left quite a mark on the world of entertainment as well as gaining substantial geek cred. Not only did she exude effortless cool and assurance as Domino in Deadpool 2 last year, she will grace the screen opposite Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck in Joker this coming October.
Since Todd Phillips’ Joker will take place outside of the DCEU canon, could she be a contender to play Selina Kyle. It’s an outside bet, sure. Still, it’s no less plausible than, say, Chris Evans playing The Human Torch in one Marvel Universe and then Captain America in another.
A German born multilingual Harlem native, Beetz could bring a worldly and urbane quality to the screen that would make for an unshakably cool Catwoman.
Beetz’ star is most certainly on the rise and landing a role like Catwoman could see her attain the heights of fame and recognition that becomes her talent.
