Kristen Stewart Proves You Can Be Friends With Your Ex With This Comment About RPatz As Batman

"I’m very, very happy about that."

While Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson might be best known for their work in the Twilight series, both actors have moved on since then and have chosen smaller films, proving they’re far more talented than we first probably realised.

Stewart is returning to big-budget films with a role in the new Charlie’s Angels reboot, while Pattinson was recently cast as Batman in Matt Reeves’ new film.

When asked about RPatz’ new role, Stewart proved she’s got nothing but love for her ex, saying she couldn’t be happier for him.

Speaking with Variety, she said, “Oh man, I feel like he’s the only guy that could play that part. I am so happy for him. It’s crazy.”

That’s a huge compliment!

The interviewer then added that Pattinson’s cheekbones also made him perfect for the role, and the actress added, “Yeah, for sure. Also he just feels like – I don’t know. I’m very, very happy about that. I heard that and I was like, ‘Oh man!’ It’s awesome.”

Watch the video here, she looks so excited for him:

The Batman is scheduled for release on June 25, 2021, and you can already tell that Pattinson is finding it difficult to keep his mouth shut about details of the film.

Also speaking to Variety, the actor was asked if the film will be more of a detective story and he laughed as he told them, “I have no ideas about anything.”

When Pattinson heard Reeves was working on a script reimagining Bruce Wayne in the younger years of his life, he knew he had to be involved.

“I’d had Batman in my mind for a while… It’s such an absurd thing to say. I sort of had an idea to do it, and I’d been prodding Matt. He didn’t accept any prods. I kept asking to meet him.”

Once the script was finished, Reeves agreed to meet Pattinson, “And then I had to kind of try to imagine what he’d written, and I hadn’t even read the script,” he said. “I’d come with this pad full of notes.”

In May, Rob flew back to LA to try on the Batsuit for the final stages of auditions. He described is as “maybe the craziest thing I’ve ever done in terms of movie stuff”.

“I put it on. I remember saying to Matt, ‘It does feel quite transformative!’ He was like, ‘I would hope it does! You’re literally in the Batsuit.’”

“You do feel very powerful immediately. And it’s pretty astonishing, something that is incredibly difficult to get into, so the ritual of getting into it is pretty humiliating. You’ve got five people trying to shove you into something. Once you’ve got it on, it’s like, ‘Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs.’”

When he found out he got the role, Pattinson was about to start work on Christopher Nolan’s newest film, “I was like, ‘What a coincidence this is happening. It’s absolutely crazy.”

Working with Nolan meant he could constantly ask him questions about his Dark Knight series.

During the interview he also accidentally mentioned Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker movie before telling the interviewer, “Oh s***… I definitely should not say that. I’m so used to pretty art-house movies, where you can watch the movie three times and still not know what it’s about.”

We can’t wait to see RPatz as Batman!

Kristen Stewart Wants To Play A Gay Superhero, So Someone Please Call Marvel Right Now

Um, yes please!

Kristen Stewart recently revealed to Harper’s Bazaar she was once told that if she wanted to land a role in a Marvel movie, she shouldn’t hold hands with her girlfriend at the time.

“I have fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie,'” she said.

Now, in an interview with Variety, the actress has revealed she would be interested in playing a gay superhero, and, seriously, Marvel should be setting this up right now.

Stewart, who is promoting her portrayal of doomed film star Jean Seberg at the Toronto Film Festival, expanded on her Harper’s Bazaar quote, telling Variety, “That’s been a conversation that’s always existed.”

“I’ve always radically rejected it. It’s nice to be able to talk about that in a way that people really understand now. Instead of sounding like I’m being crazy, like, ‘Don’t put me in a box! Ambiguity’s a cool thing!’ Now, it’s like, duh.

“Before I had to say it like it was some far-out idea. Now it’s more on the main stage, which is rad.”

She added that she only mentioned Marvel because “it was literally just a big conglomerate-y type thing”.

She went on to say with a laugh, “I’m sure they would love to hire the gay kids to be superheroes.”

Stewart’s Seberg co-star and MCU actor Anthony Mackie wondered aloud which superhero she would play and the actress interjected with, “A gay one!”

Mackie added, “I think she should be the gay female Falcon Captain America.”

Why the hell not?

Marvel has confirmed The Eternals will feature their first openly gay superhero with Kevin Feige telling Good Morning America, “He’s married, he’s got a family, and that is just part of who he is.”

Thankfully, we’ll soon see Stewart kicking ass in the new Charlie’s Angels reboot, so that’s something to look forward to.

It Looks Like The Joker Trailer Is Teasing A New Batman Origin Story

How did we miss this?!

The final Joker trailer gave fans a deeper look into the origin story of the character, however, is it possible it’s also the origin story of Batman?

On your first viewing of the trailer, it’d be easy to miss the clues that suggest Joker will share its own version of the Batman origin story.

In a blink and you’ll miss it moment in the trailer we see people rioting at a movie theatre with a poster for Excalibur (1981), this also happens to be the same movie poster seen on the theatre Thomas, Martha and Bruce Wayne leave at the beginning of Batman V Superman. This is just before Thomas and Martha are shot and killed, setting Bruce on the path to becoming Batman.

Watch the moment in Batman V Superman below:

In the riot scene in Joker, you can see three figures leaving the theatre: a couple and their young son. You don’t see them for long, but it is a pretty good indication that it’s Thomas, Martha and Bruce.

The Excalibur reference, the riots and the family of three leaving the theatre definitely feels like it’s leading to the Wayne murders.

It’s not the first time the deaths of Thomas and Martha would be linked to the Joker. In Tim Burton’s Batman film Jack Nicholson’s Joker was the gunman who killed the couple.

In 2018, Forbes writer Mark Hughes appeared on the Superhero News Show and revealed it’s very possible the Joker film is connected to Matt Reeves’ The Batman starring Robert Pattinson.

“I think Joaquin Phoenix is playing the Joker in a standalone film, that will possibly wind up not being standalone as the situation evolved with the solo Batman movies and the future of the DCEU shapes up. I haven’t heard anything firm, but I’ve heard certainly whispers from several people that I’ve talked to about that project.”

“I have heard from a few people that there is talk of if The Joker movie is really going to go forward and if it’s really that good, if we’re rebooting Batman anyway, he’s going to need a Joker. We can’t use preexisting Jokers. So we either have Jared Leto showing up as the Joker in some sort of sequel movie, and a Joaquin Phoenix solo Joker movie, and then we have to have another Joker. Wouldn’t it make more sense to … wait and see if [Phoenix’s Joker] works out, then just cross that and have that be the Joker for the new Batman?”

This rumour is obviously quite old and it’s possible things have changed. It would also be somewhat confusing to have Phoenix’s Joker part of Pattinson’s Batman films when Bruce is seemingly still a child in this film. It would be almost 20 years before he officially becomes Batman which would mean the Joker would be quite old.

It’ll be very interesting to see how this plays out!
