Why Zoe Kravitz Was Denied An Audition For The Dark Knight Rises

In the past several years, Zoë Kravitz has been climbing up the Hollywood food chain, nabbing roles in X-Men: First Class, Divergent, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Dope. But there is one high-profile film she couldn't even get an audition for: Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises (2012).

“In the last Batman movie [The Dark Knight Rises], they told me that I couldn’t get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren’t ‘going urban,’” Kravitz told Nylon. “It was like, ‘What does that have to do with anything?’ I have to play the role like, ‘Yo, what’s up, Batman? What’s going on wit chu?’”

Which "small role" is Kravitz referring to? Best guess: 'Jen,' the pickpocketing flatmate and best friend of Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), which eventually went to British actress Juno Temple (Horns).
