Kravitz beat out Atlanta‘s Zazie Beetz and actresses Alicia Vikander and Eiza Gonzalez, who were also considered for the role.
“In the last Batman movie [The Dark Knight Rises], they told me that I couldn’t get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren’t ‘going urban,'” the actress told the publication. “It was like, ‘What does that have to do with anything?’ I have to play the role like, ‘Yo, what’s up, Batman? What’s going on wit chu?'”
Production is set to begin either later this year or at the top of 2020. And get excited because the film is scheduled to arrive in theaters June 2021.
