Kristen Stewart On Fans Wanting Her To Play Joker Opposite Robert Pattinson’s Batman

It’s inevitable that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will be reunited someday. You just can’t keep that kind of chemistry on the shelf forever! The Twilight duo have long since moved on from their romantic past, and of course, the vampire franchise that built their careers. And actually, they’re both having a moment right now with him starring in The Batman and her playing Princess Diana in Spencer. So…maybe the two will get back together with K-Stew as Batman’s greatest rival, the Joker?

I don’t know if you can call them rumors or just people wishing the shit would happen, but social media has been buzzing with the idea of Stewart playing Joker in a future sequel to The Batman. It’s a fucking sick idea, and as a Stewart devotee, I would personally love to see it. She would absolutely kill it.

But is Stewart interested in playing the Crown Princess of Crime? Well…not so much. She told Variety

“Let’s do something new. 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.”

She’s not writing off the idea entirely, however. When asked if that was a hard “no”, Stewart replied…

“Not ‘no,’ but not the most stoked I’ve ever been.”

Honestly, casting Stewart as Joker might be too much of a distraction. It would make for some cool headlines but ultimately it would probably cause more harm than good. Besides, there are so many Bat-villains out there, and Joker has been DONE TO DEATH over the last few years. They really don’t need to use him at all.

The Batman opens March 4th 2022.
