Multiple photos and videos from the set of Matt Reeves’ production of The Batman surfaced online yesterday, offering fans a glimpse at what could be the batcycle and a stunt version of the batsuit. Upon further look, it’s possible we were so focused on the batsuit and bike that we overlooked what could be our first glimpse of Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, who will be portrayed by Zoe Kravitz.
Taken at the Glasgow Necropolis cemetery, the photos and video revealed what appeared to be a motorcycle chase sequence involving Batman and a second individual.
While nothing official about the second character’s identity has been revealed, the fact that the second person is a woman has led to speculation this could be Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman stunt double.
