Rihanna Responds to ‘Batman’ Casting Rumors, Says Poison Ivy Is One of Her ‘Obsessions’

Rihanna is setting the record straight about recent rumors claiming she’s going to be playing Poison Ivy in an upcoming Batman movie.

The singer, actress and fashion mogul stunned on the red carpet at her 5th Annual Diamond Ball benefiting the Clara Lionel Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Thursday, and she spoke with ET about speculation that she’d recently hinted at the casting news on Instagram.

One of the best-selling pop icons, Rihanna is known for hit singles like “Umbrella,” “Disturbia,” “Diamonds” and “We Found Love.” She has also been a part of films like “Ocean’s Eight” (2018) and “Battleship” (2012). Here are some interesting facts to know about the singer-actress.
The rumor mill began working overtime on Sunday when she shared a video of her black leather-rubber boot, a design from her own clothing company, and compared it to the Batmobile.

“Bat-mobile, but make it fashion!” Rihanna captioned the clip. “Get into this matte leather-rubber fusion tho. @fenty.”

That was enough to get overeager fans worked up into fervor over the idea that she’s joining the Batman/DC universe, and — considering her penchant for dying her hair bright red — she might be playing Poison Ivy. Meanwhile, others suggested the black boot could hint at her possibly playing Catwoman.
