If Poison Ivy will be one of the villains set to face off with the Dark Knight in The Batman, actress and pop star Rihanna says she wants to play the part. Recently, Rihanna had conjured up rumours about her casting in the project when she posted a photo of her leather boots on Instagram, referring to the Batmobile in the caption.

The rumoured Rihanna casting then generated so much buzz the singer was asked directly about it by Entertainment Tonight, and while Rihanna says she has not been cast in the movie, she would love to audition for Poison Ivy if given the opportunity.

“That [post] has to do a lot with Batman [because] I have separate obsessions. I have [a] bigger obsession with Poison Ivy, I’m just being honest. And yeah, I dyed my hair red because of Uma Thurman in [Batman and Robin]. You know what, [Warner Bros.] 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. I did it for Halloween one year, I mean come on!”

Until casting announcements for The Batman are made official, all those waiting for updates can do now is speculate over who might be showing up in the movie. Pierce Brosnan’s name has come up in the rumour mill as a possible contender for the role of Alfred Pennyworth. Mahershala Ali was also rumoured to be in the running for Commissioner Jim Gordon, though that likely won’t happen given his recent Blade casting. Some other interesting casting choices from fan artists include David Tennant as the Riddler, Vanessa Kirby as Catwoman, and Macaulay Culkin as the Joker.

It’s easy to picture Rihanna as Poison Ivy, so Reeves should at least let her audition should the character appear in the movie. We’ll all find out officially what happens in The Batman when the movie is released on June 25, 2021.
