A lot of the Kristen Stewart fans are now campaigning for her to play the role of Catwoman, and this will reunite her with the Twilight actor, Robert Pattinson, who is now a “top choice” for playing Batman. Stewart and Pattinson actually dated for a while amid all the Twilight romance, and this relationship had ended by the year, 2012 when Stewart was in an affair with her Rupert Sanders.
Catwoman aka Selina Kyle is a sometimes enemy, and part-time lover of Batman and has not yet made a live-action appearance in the DCEU.
Warner Bros and DC Films had expressed interest in introducing this character when the writer of Suicide Squad, David Ayer had been tapped to develop the movie, Gotham City Sirens, which is a spinoff which will centre around Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
In the year, 2015, Stewart had told Yahoo Movies she is interested in joining the superhero film franchise:
“I love watching those movies,” Stewart had said.
“I would love to show people that I can do more than just be ‘Kristen Stewart’ in a different movie, in a different circumstance.”
The actress had then pointed to her role as the character, Snow White in the fantasy movie:
“I’m sure I could get on board with Captain America, you know what I mean? … It would just have to be the right thing.”
In the year, 2018, a Twitter scooper had claimed that Warner Bros. was actually seeking a “Kristen Stewart prototype” for Barbara Gordon aka, Batgirl.
Pattinson has not been officially named as the next Batman, and this is a role which he will fill for first-time DCEU director, Matt Reeves. Deadline had also noted that the X-Men star, Nicholas Hoult is now a candidate.
Warner Bros. has dated The Batman for June 25, 2021.
