Proving there is no bad blood between these exes, Kristen Stewart has shared her excitement at ex-boyfriend and co-star Robert Pattinson being cast as the next Batman.

In a move we really did not expect, the actress was more than keen to chat about Robs new role as the caped crusader.

Walking the red carpet of the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend, where she was promoting her movie, Seberg, fresh from its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, she was asked about the man formerly known as Edward Cullen.

I feel like hes the only guy that could play that part, she told Variety on Saturday of the Batman casting.

Im so happy for him. Its crazy. Im very, very happy about that. I heard that and I was like, “Oh man!” Its awesome.

With a casting call of the likes of Christian Bale and George Clooney having buffed up for the role of the husky-voiced hero, fans were a little divided at Roberts casting.

Not that it phased him, though.

To be honest, it was less vitriolic than I was expecting, he said of the response. Its much more fun when youre an underdog. Theres no expectation of you.

Chatting his new role, Kristen was asked whether shed be up for a reunion on-screen with her former partner – who she dated during the heady Twilight days – and she was all for it.

Im down, Kristen continued. Im definitely not turning that down.

But were definitely not getting our hopes up.

The two stars were linked during filming of the second Twilight movie New Moon in 2009 but their relationship was only confirmed in 2012, when pictures of Kristen kissing Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders emerged and she issued an apology.

R-Patz and K-Stew reunited later that year, but split for good in May 2013.
