Before being the Catwoman of 2022, Zoë Kravitz could have joined the Batman universe a little earlier. She wanted him anyway, but things didn’t go as planned. In a portrait for The Guardian, the actress explains that she auditioned for The Dark Knight Rises (2012), and was not taken – which of course often happens in Hollywood, but not necessarily for this reason. that this refusal had particularly marked her, in particular because she was told that she was too “urban”, “urban”. She explains, “I don’t know if it came directly from Christopher Nolan. I think it’s a casting director, in a way, or an assistant casting director… Being a woman of color, and being a actress, and hearing at the time that I couldn’t do any reading because of my skin color, and the word ‘urban’ being thrown around like that, that was what was really difficult at that time- there.”Small revenge ten years later, even if that does not detract from this experience of racism not even masked.
