Zoë Kravitz, who plays Catwoman/Selina Kyle in Matt Reeves’ upcoming movie “The Batman,” says that costar Robert Pattinson is the “perfect” person to portray the Dark Knight.

“I’ve never worked with him before, but we’ve been together for the last few weeks,” Kravitz said during an interview with Variety. “I had to camera test with him and now we’ve been training together and rehearsing together and he’s just a delightful person and such a wonderful, thoughtful actor.”

The 31-year-old “Big Little Liars” star went on to say: “I think he’s perfect for the role and it’s going to be such an adventure. I’m excited to have him as my partner in crime and to be there to support each other, because it’s intense. It’s going to be a long shoot and there’s a lot of pressure, and I know he has my back and I have his.”

Kravitz and Pattinson are among the A-listers who will be portraying DC Comics characters in the film, which is scheduled for release on June 25, 2021.

“The Batman” also stars Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin.

On Wednesday, Kravtiz told Jimmy Fallon that she’s “legally not allowed to say anything” about the film, but “the cast is amazing.” The “High Fidelity” star also previously told Ellen DeGeneres that the training for the movie was no joke and she found herself “limping every day.”

Most recently Reeves shared the first footage of Pattison suited up as the Caped Crusader. The camera test video had black and red hues and showed off the character’s iconic logo on his chest, which many fans believe could be made from the gun that killed Bruce Wayne’s parents.
