Kristen Stewart revealed if she would be open to playing The Joker in Robert Pattinson’s Batman trilogy.

Robert Pattinson’s career as Batman appears to be just getting started, and it seems Matt Reeves is wasting no time building up Gotham City and the villains that inhabit it. It almost feels inevitable for Joker to appear at some point, and some online have campaigned for the role to go to his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart.

During an interview with Variety, Kristen Stewart responded to the idea of reuniting with Robert Pattinson in The Batman trilogy as Joker:

“I love the energy behind that. It’s really been done so well. I feel like, maybe, we don’t traipse over, but I love that gusto. Let’s figure something else out. I’m totally down to play a freaky, scary person.”

Later on, Kristen Stewart made it clear that she isn’t interested in playing The Joker:

“No. Not ‘no,’ but not the most stoked I’ve ever been. Let’s do something new.”

The plot of Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is being kept under lock and key, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman will hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming Robert Pattinson film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
