Collider is exclusively reporting that up-and-coming actress Jayme Lawson, who recently graduated from Juilliard, is the latest name to join the cast of Matt Reeves’ upcoming feature The Batman.
Matt Reeves was brought on board the project back in February 2017, taking over the reigns of directing the film that Ben Affleck was originally set to direct based on a script he wrote with Geoff Johns. Since then, Reeves has been adapting the script for The Batman along with Ben Affleck, upon which Affleck revealed in January that he wouldn’t be reprising the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman for Reeves’ version.
Jayme Lawson’s role is currently being kept under wraps.
The film is co-written by Matt Reeves and Mattson Tomlin. Jayme Lawson joins a cast that includes Robert Pattinson, Jeffrey Wright, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano and potentially Colin Farrell and Andy Serkis.
The Batman is scheduled for cinematic release on the 25th June 2021.
