DCEU’s New Catwoman Actress Revealed? Haley Bennett Ready To Take On the Role?


DC Extended Universe may have revealed the latest woman who will take on Selena Kyle's alter ego. The movie "Gotham City Sirens", which is the Harley Quinn spinoff, is where this new Catwoman will lay waste. She will be starring next to iconic characters such as Poison Ivy.

The last Catwoman who played the role was Anne Hathaway and it was one of her best reviewed performances on the big screen. So who's the lucky actress this time?

DCEU's New Catwoman Actress

The casting for the movie is still on the way. Although nothing has been set on stone yet as to who will play the roles of Poison Ivy and Catwoman, one of the actresses auditioning for the role and took it over her Instagram was Haley Bennett ("The Girl on the Train", "Music and Lyrics", "The Magnificent Seven"), Movie Web reported. This lead fans to speculate whether or not she's been really casted to don the Catwoman suit.

Bennett will no longer address the issue on her social media accounts and the studio has likewise taken the same stead. But her social media posts which has a series of Catwoman pictures in it made fans pay close attention. She even shared a picture of herself with Selena Kyle's pixie cut and captioned it, "This is me now", Comic Book reported.

There are rumors that Megan Fox will play the iconic Poison Ivy, but again, this remained a rumor. This was fuelled when Fox ordered a lot of comic books online, which fans took as a sign that she’s studying for the role. With DCEU looking to expand its world, “Gotham City Sirens” offers a lot of chances for it to do just that.

Bennett’s big screen performances have received hearts and hates by critics and fans. For her to play one of DC’s most beloved female heroines is a big challenge. It may be the biggest challenge in her career so far. Her teasing fans over social media has made her an easy target for hecklers and only her performance in “Gotham City Sirens”, if she gets the role, will determine whether the fans will worship her or kill her for it.

She’s almost as old as Margot Robbie and this will give her an equal footing with her if she really gets to play the role. Moreover, her “The Girl on the Train” and “Magnificent Seven” performances will give “Gotham City Sirens” a critical push that the DCEU desperately needs right now.
