So more news out of the rumor mill, and as this pertains directly to DC movie casting, slap a big Rumor sign on this one!
Vanessa Kirby, soon to be featured in the new Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, is reportedly being eyed to play Selina Kyle/Catwoman in The Batman.
This is interesting news, but I know very little of Kirby’s work so there isn’t much to go on. Speaking to her look, I think she has a Michelle Pfeiffer-y look to her, so there’s that. I could believe her to look the part of Selina Kyle, but I just don’t have much to go on for acting chops, and that, more than any visual look, is what will make or break the role.
As I’ve said before, in Matt Reeves I trust, so I will let him make his movie and look more forward to Hobbs & Shaw to get a glimpse of Kirby’s acting level.
What do you think? Is Vanessa Kirby right for Selina Kyle/Catwoman? Let me know/Drop a comment below!
