Rihanna Being Courted By Warner Bros To Play Poison Ivy In Next Batman Movie

Published: Friday 6th Sep 2019 by Sam

Rihanna has proven herself a multi-tasker of epic proportions. And while much of that title relates to her entrepreneurial activity, she’s no stranger to the big screen either.

Now, per a new report, Warner Bros may be looking to gift the Bajan belle her next big role.

Full story below…

According to We Got This Covered, RiRi is said to be on the studio’s internal list of names in contention to play Poison Ivy in the next Batman movie.

No word on whether a formal offer has been extended to the 31-year-old, but early murmurs has made DCEU enthusiasts excited. Especially as Ms. Ivy hasn’t been present on screen since 1997.

Rih’s filmography has generated varied results, with some titles fairing better (‘Oceans 8’) than others (‘Battleship’).

Still, as the likes of Beyonce with ‘The Lion King’ and Lady Gaga with ‘A Star Is Born,’ there ample marketing potential in attaching a major Pop star to a flick. So, it definitely would be a great look on paper for all parties.

Perhaps, just perhaps, that may bring with it the new music folk are thirsty for from Ms. Fenty too.

Would you be here for Rih playing Poison Ivy? Let us know…

Your thoughts?

  3. L’ORANGE September 6, 2019

    Terrible choice! I like Rihanna as a business woman but as a actress nope.

    • Urg September 6, 2019

      Ikr. Rihanna is an exotic beauty and is talanted but as an actress is a no. She should stick to business and music (if she ever going to give us an album again.)

      • Dolly September 11, 2019

        You must’ve not seen any of her movies ? Rihanna got this ! ??

  4. Erica September 6, 2019

    Perfect for the role

  5. pat September 6, 2019


  6. Meme September 6, 2019

    Ummm yes Mam! I can see it

  7. Tyty September 6, 2019

    She got the allure and exoticness but her acting leaves a lot to be desired. White people really out here losing roles to black folk in Hollywood ? I’m loving it!!

    • Joshua September 10, 2019

      Only bc yall use that race card and they don’t wanna hear crying.

      • Dolly September 11, 2019

        Or maybe because they have more character and can do the role better !

      • Content October 8, 2019

        Honey, no white commentary is needed or necessary. Stop contributing to diaspora and keep the trap zipped.

    I think her and Beyoncé are pretty much music at this point. Could be the behind the scenes stuff, the politics or just lack of caring anymore but they seem over it. I noticed Beyoncé was just tired of it all during Coachella. She seemed robotic and just going through the motions. I noticed Rihanna kind of over during the “ANTi” era and considering all the s*** that went wrong, understandable. She also made f****** killing in the last few years during everything but music so…why not leave music for a while ??‍♂️.

  9. Clarkson September 6, 2019

    DC is trash.

    Rihanna dont do it.

    Marvel is the winning team. Join marvel instead. all 3 marvel movies released this year exceeded 1 billion dollars.

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 6, 2019

      Do you have an actual job? You are on here everyday spouting advice as if celebrities are even going to read it.

  10. Ratedxxx September 6, 2019

    I fuks with rihanna and all
    But I don’t see her as poison ivy…

    There are plenty of other actresses who would be perfect for that role

    • Brando September 10, 2019

      Like a white actress??? Stfu

      • Nina September 11, 2019

        Like a GOOD actress!
        I’m Rican and half my family is jamaican, trini, etc etc… She f****** sucks!

  11. Thicccccccckkkkyyyy thiiicccc September 6, 2019

    Ugh this Batman reboot sounds like it’s going to be horrible

    • Taffy September 6, 2019


  12. Beyhives September 6, 2019

    No ma’am

    Queen Bey is better and more fit for the role

    • SMH September 6, 2019

      Lmao beyonce couldn’t even act in an animated movie, so stop with the jokes.

    • Master Wayne September 8, 2019

      Why try then right?BTW BATMAN stand-alone films usually do pretty well.There’s that.

    • Master Wayne September 8, 2019


  13. StarXavi September 6, 2019

    I can see this for her. I think she has room to grow as an actress but she’s still young and new at it. She did really well in Guava Island. She very enigmatic on screen. Poison ivy is a good chance to play a character.

  14. Taffy September 6, 2019

    Feck no. Fans (and when i say fans, I mean DC fans, not pop star fans) are excited about poison ivy –not Rihanna playing poison ivy.
    And as a redhead, we are only 4% of the world’s population, the percentage of minority for a redhead of ethnic colour an even a smaller fraction. Poison Ivy has been an icon and bad a*** role model to the ginger nation since her appearance in Batman on June 1966!! Can we not get a REAL redhead to portray us??!! My opinion of Rhianna as poison Ivy….in the words of Isla Fisher, ( a natural redhead) from the movie, Tag, “suck my tiny ginger balls.”

    • Master Wayne September 8, 2019

      Ha ha !!I love Isla Fisher so good in Beach Bum

  15. Kenny September 6, 2019

    I think she a perfect choice for poison ivy ?

  16. Dcnez September 7, 2019

    Hmmmm her lazy acting style can be well suited for the typical lazy Poison ivy

  17. Just Sayin’ September 7, 2019

    I’m a big RiRi fan but honestly RiRi is not an actress. She has the looks and can pull off the red hair but acting is most der not her strong suit #js

  18. Moisés September 7, 2019

    Lets pray this people get a better cast than Disney for real Life Motion movies! Rihana hace everything to play poison ivy! I hope they do the right decision.

    • Nani September 9, 2019

      No she doesn’t. She can’t act.

  19. Jake September 7, 2019

    Zoey Dutch, Madelaine Petsh, Jessica Chastain, Dallas Bryce Howard, Riley Keough, Dianna Agron would all be better choices. And that’s just at the top of my head

    • Master Wayne September 8, 2019

      Jessica Chastain !!!

  20. Nani September 9, 2019

    Noooooo no no. They need to stop. And no this isn’t about race. I dont think she has good acting skills. Her role Oceans 8 was horrible. Im sorry.

  21. Brando September 10, 2019

    Here come all the angry white people

  22. Gigi September 10, 2019

    I HATED her acting in Oceans 8. You took a spot of a talented actress to act like a spoiled brat in that film. Mind you I actually ADORE RIHANNA. THIS IS A TERRIBLE CHOICE. OH GOD HER ACTING IS WORSE THAN BEYONCE. JUST STOP GIVING HER ACTING ROLES. PS. This is coming from a very loving place. Vent over…

  23. Blessed Shelton September 10, 2019

    Why can’t they bring back Uma Thurman?

  24. Are You Kidding Me? September 10, 2019

    PERFECT! She focuses more on weed than improving her vocals. #HereForIt

  25. Tiara September 10, 2019

    Ruth Connell as Ivy!!

  26. Nina September 11, 2019

    Please stop ruining Batman movie with s***** actors!

  27. Dolly September 11, 2019

  36. Isabella Muller October 9, 2019

    RIHANNA WOULD BE PERFECT AT It she already own the world let’s make her Queen

  37. Ash October 9, 2019

    Why can’t a Hispanic or Asian lady take these type of roles instead of just black ladies?? Rihanna is cool and all, but I want some other people of color for once if people are going to be complaining about not casting the original and faithful character as a white lady with red hair and green eyes. :/

  38. Daralyn Hile October 9, 2019

    Hell yes im definetly watching

  39. Rhody October 10, 2019

  41. billy jones October 13, 2019

  42. rwwllms October 13, 2019

    Why do they always cast a black person to play the bad guy? Are they equating being black with being evil?
