Zoë Kravitz’s “Papa Bear” couldn’t be more proud of her for landing her newest role.
ScreenRant reports that Jason Momoa, who first captured our hearts as Khal Drogo on HBO’s Game of Thrones, took to Instagram yesterday to congratulate his stepdaughter, Zoë Kravitz, for landing the role of Catwoman in Matt Reeves' upcoming film The Batman. Kravitz will take on the fan-favorite femme fatale counterpart to the Caped Crusader, played by Robert Pattinson.
Momoa, who first joined the DC Universe in 2017 as Arthur Curry (a.k.a. Aquaman), posted a picture of him and Kravitz to his Instagram page with the caption, “I’m so proud of u zozo bear. On and off screen OHANA. DC WB ohana Lola and Wolfie[']s big sister is CAT WOMAN [sic]… Unbelievable so freaking stoked. Your [sic] going to have so much fun Aloha P bear.”
The Aquaman superstar started dating Kravitz’ mother, actor Lisa Bonet, back in 2005. The two were married in 2017, and share two children. Bonet shares Zoë with musician Lenny Kravitz, who she was married to from 1987-1993.
The Fantastic Beasts star reportedly beat out the coveted role of the spandex-wearing, butt-kicking anti-hero over Ana de Armas, Ella Balinska, and Eiza González. The role was last played by Anne Hathaway in the 2012 Christopher Nolan film The Dark Knight Rises, and also been portrayed over the years by icons such as Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Halle Berry.
Though the competition was fierce, I think DC made an excellent choice with Kravitz as The Cat. And Jason Momoa no doubt thinks so, too.
