While Catwoman has played an enormous role in Tom King’s current Batman run, with she and Batman’s wedding shaking up the internet and beyond, it’s not yet known which interpretation of the character will be explored in the upcoming Reeves-helmed film.

Other possible candidates rumored to be joining Pattison and Hudgens in The Batman are Richard E. Grant (Logan) as Alfred Pennyworth, Jason Clarke (John Connor from Terminator: Genisys, Malcolm in Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Thomas Wayne, Kerri Russell (The Americans, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Martha Wayne, Josh Gad (Beauty and the Beast) as the Penguin, Toby Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island) as the Scarecrow and Theo Rossi (Juice from Sons of Anarchy) as Bane.
