Rihanna On Rumors She’ll Portray Villain In ‘Batman’ Movie: ‘Poison Ivy Is My Obsession!’ [Video]

Published: Friday 13th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Just last week we reported Pop superstar Rihanna was “in talks” to portray supervillan Poison Ivy in the forthcoming ‘Batman’ film, due in theaters in 2021 (click here to read more).

Citing her music videos like ‘B*tch Better Have My Money’ and ‘Needed Me’ as proof of her acting prowess and ability to do a kickass job of playing the bad gal, fans of the diva – affectionately known as #TheNavy – created a campaigning chorus to get the attention of the movie’s casting agents and producers to try to set the wheels in motion. Rih – hard at work with Fenty beauty campaigns, New York Fashion Week, and putting the finishing touches on her new album – only added fuel to the fire when she took to Instagram earlier this week to show off ‘bat-mobile’ inspired fashion.

Just last night as she aligned with fellow stars for her annual Diamond Ball (click here to read more), the Grammy winner was quizzed by our friends at ET Online about her involvement in the Matt Reeves-directed movie.  Hear her response inside:

After posting the video above fans immediately began speculating there was truth to the rumor the 31-year-old was set to don the role of Pamela Lillian Isley – better known as “Poison Ivy.”  Discussing the post on the red carpet of last night’s Diamond Ball (September 12), she stated:

“No that has nothing to do with Poison Ivy. That [post] has to do a lot with Batman [because] I have separate obsessions,” Rihanna revealed. “I have bigger obsession with Poison Ivy, I’m just being honest. And yeah, I died my hair red because of Uma Thurman in the original.”

When asked if she would consider auditioning for the flick, Rih replied:

“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,” she shared. “I did it for Halloween one year, I mean come on!”

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.

    I think it could be cute to hear poison ivy with an island accent

    Batman is too big a franchise to mess up casting with someone who can’t play the role, so if she were cast, she would’ve to knock her audition out of the park. I would be here for it. I’m pretty neutral when it comes to Riri, but she shouldn’t be dismissed out of hand for her previous acting work. Batman has had great performances from unlikely casting.

    I think this will be good. All things aside, I think her boyfriend should have been at the gala. It looks to be so important to her.

    Just give her the part already!
