Do you feel ten years younger? It is probably because Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart are sharing a headline again! But no, this time they are not sharing a drama tale here, in fact, it is quite the opposite since the actress addressed an incredible rumor about her being part of the DC Universe.

Kristen Stewart was asked in a recent interview with Variety if she knew about the wild theory she could be the next Prince(ss) of Crime alongside her ex-boyfriend and former Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson who is playing the upcoming Bruce Wayne a.k.a Batman. While she admits that she is totally down to play the Joker, she would prefer to do something new.


“I love the energy behind that,” Stewart tells Variety,  “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.”

Many are the stars that have portrayed the archnemesis and most evil clown of Gotham and each one of them has added a little bit to the character. How can we forget Jack Nicholson or Jared Leto? Or the late Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix who won an Academy Award for their portrayal. Even Mark Hamill has terrorized us when voicing the Joker.

While we already know that due to their history together they did not part in the best terms, it seems that, if they are not BFF at least they support each other from afar. In fact, this is not the first time Kristen Stewart supports Robert Pattison as the upcoming Batman.

“Oh man, I feel like he's the only guy that could play that part," she told Variety in another interview "I am so happy for him, it's crazy. It just feels like, I dunno. I'm very, very happy about that. I heard that and I was like, 'Oh man!' Yeah, yeah, it's awesome." She even praised his “perfect cheekbones” that make him ideal to play Bruce Wayne, so we will not blame you if you are already squealing.

But wait! There is more to it! In another interview back in 2019 when promoting Charlie's Angels, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, and Kristen were asked about who is the best Batman out there and without hesitation Kristen replied “Robert Pattison, yet to find out” also adding that in second place is Michael Keaton for her but that she could not wait to see and hear Rob saying “I'm Batman.”

Anyway, according to Hollywood Life, Robert Pattison is aware of Kristen's praise making it a big deal for him because it0s a dream come true. “Kristen knows how special this is for Rob. Her support is deeply personal. Rob appreciates her support so much and it really means a lot to him because he still really respects her opinion,” the source adds.
