Ever since it was confirmed that Robert Pattinson will be taking on the role of Batman in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, the actor has received mixed feedback from fans of the iconic character.
However, Stewart, 29, believes that Pattinson, whom she famously dated after the pair starred together in the Twilight movies, is the “only” actor for the part.
“I feel like he’s the only guy that could play that part,” Stewart told Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival. “I’m so happy for him. It’s crazy. I’m very, very happy about that. I heard that and I was like, ‘Oh man!’ It’s awesome.”
Stewart even went so far as to point out that Pattinson, 33, has the “perfect cheekbones” to play the superhero.
