DC seems to be righting the ship with Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Is The Batman going to follow suit or not?

Sounds like Pattinson is in, and I think he'll do well.

How many people will groan and crap all over it before even seeing it, maybe not even give it a chance, simply because “oh God it’s the sparkly vampire playing Batman now”?

It happened when he was just rumored for the role.

I think we're far enough away from Twilight for people to be that upset.

So far it hasn't been as bad as the Affleck blow-up.

So has the idea for this movie been changed? I'm just wondering because originally this was going to be Ben Affleck in the role. He's 13 years older than Pattinson. Was his age going to be ignored and he was going to play the same Batman? Or are they changing it up to fit a younger actor in the role?

Or does his age even matter? Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises are the only Batman movies I can think of where his age was an issue.

You kind of answered your own question. It depends on the story they are telling. I thought I had read that Affleck's movie was going to be the grizzled veteran Batman who has been through the wars, a la Dark Knight Returns. Not necessarily that comic story, but that characterization. A continuation of what we saw in JL where Robin is dead and he is at the end of his rope with all this. Would they go down that same path with Pattinson?

That was my thought. Although to be fair, even Uma Thurman couldn’t do anything with that movie.
