In an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, Kristen Stewart voiced her support for longtime Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson’s casting as Batman. The actress, who was at TIFF to promote her new film, Seberg, told Variety, “I feel like he’s the only guy that could play that part. I’m so happy for him.” A fair amount of online backlash followed the news of Pattinson’s casting as the iconic character, particularly from diehard fans of the franchise, and Pattinson himself revealed that he was “furious” about the leak of the casting news. But now that he has Stewart’s blessing, we can all rest easier. Both actors have become something of indie darlings in their post-Twilight careers, and if Pattinson’s wig work in The King is any indication, he’s more than up to the job.
