I'd like to nominate Michaela Coel, Cynthia Erivo, and Janelle Monae, please!

  You know how there's a new Batman movie in the works, starring Robert Pattison?

  Well, rumor has it that the director's looking to cast an actress of color for the iconic Catwoman role.

  Neilson Barnard / Getty Images Again, this is a rumor that's yet to be officially confirmed by Matt Reeves himself or anyone attached to the project.

  Gareth Cattermole / Getty Images, Gregg Deguire / FilmMagic, Dan Macmedan / Getty Images Rumor or not, people are HYPE about the possibility of a Catwoman of color, and quickly reminded the critics that this wouldn't be the first time a black woman portrayed the clawed caper... So I heard that for #TheBatman they are eyeing a POC for the role of Catwoman and before the racists comic book fans come in with “CaTWoMAn shoULD Be whIte.”

  The first black actress to bring Catwoman to life and a powerful black woman!
