Robert Downey Jr. is excited to see Robert Pattinson in The Batman. Downey Jr. has been acting consistently since the 80s, but he is most known today for playing Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor starred as Tony Stark in a total of nine Marvel movies since he made his debut in 2008, before being killed off in Avengers: Endgame last year.

On the DC side of the superhero genre, Pattinson is currently filming his scenes for The Batman, which is said to be set outside of the DC Extended Universe. Upon Pattinson’s casting as Batman, the internet was filled with criticism over Warner Bros. decision, mainly due to the fact that Pattinson was the star of the Twilight saga. To be fair, people hated the idea of Ben Affleck and even Michael Keaton being cast as Batman, so it’s possible that fans will always be skeptical over the character’s actor. One person who doesn’t seem to be skeptical however, is Downey Jr.
