The "Game of Thrones" star wrote that he was "Unbelievable so freaking stoked" about Kravitz snagging the role.

"I'm so proud of u zozo bear. On and off screen OHANA," Momoa wrote in the caption. "DC WB ohana Lola and Wolfies big sister is CAT WOMAN."

The actress is the daughter of rocker/actor Lenny Kravitz.

Being cast as Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, is a major get for Kravitz.
