The cat is out of the bag: Zoë Kravitz will star as Catwoman!

Halle Berry, who played the comic book character in Pitof's 2004 film, welcomed Kravitz to the cat club after she was cast in Matt Reeves' upcoming "Batman" film earlier this week. 

"Special shout-out to your new #CatWoman, the eternally graceful & extremely bad ass @ZoeKravitz. Keep shining Queen & welcome to the family!" Berry tweeted Thursday.

USA TODAY has confirmed that Kravitz is set to play Catwoman alongside Robert Pattinson's Batman in the upcoming movie.

On Monday, the film's director tweeted out a gif of Kravitz, furthering feline fervor about the actress playing Selina Kyle.

If there's anyone that's more excited over Kravitz landing the role, it's her stepdad, Jason Momoa.
