Haley Bennett might be the new Catwoman if you believe her cryptic Instagram messages

Ah, Instagram. The birthplace of food selfies, terrible filters and movie stars posting cryptic messages to tease us all. It turns out The Magnificent Seven’s Hayley Bennett likes to play that game too – hinting with a trio of images that she might be the latest actress to don the spandex catsuit of Catwoman.

The images range from subtle to scratching your nails on a chalkboard and screaming "I AM CATWOMAN!" whilst stealing some diamonds. This could be suggest that Catwoman may make an appearance in The Batman or, more likely, Gotham City Sirens alongside Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.

This is me now. @garrennewyork

Hayley Bennett is certainly getting into her rumoured role, cutting off her flowing locks in favour of a Selina Kyle-esque short, smart bob.

Major props for that sushi image, too. Cats liking fish equals Hayley Bennett confirmed as Catwoman. Now that’s journalism. Meow, indeed.
