Rihanna recently shared comments on social media referencing the Batman universe, prompting some fans to hope that she could play Poison Ivy opposite Robert Pattinson’s Batman.
Earlier this month, Rihanna shared an Instagram post taking note of her choice in fashion, with an image captioned “Bat-mobile, but make it fashion!” Obviously, that isn’t a lot to go on with suggesting that Rihanna has joined the cast of Robert Pattinson’s The Batman, but that didn’t stop fans from speculating about a potential Batman role, with Poison Ivy being a talking point due to Rihanna’s tendency to dye her hair red.
Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Rihanna revealed that she was not consciously hinting at anything to her fans. Here’s what Rihanna told the site:
“No, that has nothing to do with Poison Ivy. That [post] has to do a lot with Batman [because] I have separate obsessions. I have bigger obsession with Poison Ivy, I’m just being honest.”
Later, Rihanna explicitly stated that she hasn’t been called for a role in the Robert Pattinson starrer:
“You know what, they didn’t call me yet. But if they did, I would love to go in and try out because Poison Ivy is one of my obsessions in life.”
Details for the Robert Pattinson-led Batman project are being kept under lock and key. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck bookending the film as his current Batman while the film introduced Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader in his earlier years. But with Ben Affleck officially retired from the role, Robert Pattinson is replacing the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League star as Batman.
We know that The Batman will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that reportedly includes Catwoman and The Penguin. Director Matt Reeves has also confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s acclaimed Year One comic and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC Films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new movie trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman is one of the many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC. These projects include The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, The Suicide Squad, Supergirl, New Gods, and Birds of Prey.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Rihanna, Poison Ivy, Robert Pattinson and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
