(Variety) The torch has been passed yet again. After we got only our second movie of the Batfleck era the caped crusader decided he needed to don a new actor, this time opting to go a bit younger than previous iterations. Pattinson at age 33 is the second youngest person to play Batman and maybe they'll take an angle on that in the upcoming movie 'The Batman' perhaps more of a coming of age early stage Batman movie. Pattinson first got his start in the Twilight series but since then has gone on to act in some great movies since then. 'The Batman' comes out 2021.
