“The Batman” - Enter ‘Catwoman’

Take another look at leaked images from the set of Warner Bros "The Batman" live-action feature, starring "Twilight" vampire Robert Pattinson as 'Bruce Wayne', Colin Farrell as 'Penguin' and Zoë Kravitz as 'Catwoman':

Cast of the new film also includes Jeffrey Wright...
...Paul Dano, Andy Serkis...
...Jayme Lawson, John Turturro and Peter Sarsgaard.

"It's very much a point of view-driven, 'noir Batman' tale," said director Matt Reeves.

"It's told very squarely on his shoulders...
"...and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. 

"It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films. 

"The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective...

"...and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.

"I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime. It's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation."

"Right now it’s called 'The Batman'. What it will be called ultimately, I don't know. There will be a 'Rogues Gallery'."

"Warner Bros. has been incredibly supportive and share the same passion that I do for this story."

"Warners believes they don't have to try to develop a giant slate that has to have all the plans for how it's going to connect. What they need to try and do is make good movies with these characters..."
