Milo Ventimiglia has revealed Warner Bros did not cast him in the role of Batman because the studio felt he was "too old" to play the caped crusader. On a podcast, the actor was asked about him auditioning for the role after Ben Affleck stepped down.

''Do I see myself in a cape and cowl? Warner Bros. didn't. They were looking for a new Batman and they said, 'Ventimiglia, you're too old.' That's OK, it doesn't matter. I'm kind of busy, it's OK," said the This is Us actor.

When he was asked if he has plans to audition for any other superhero part. he said,"'The superhero world? Maybe I'm just playing real-life superheroes right now. Jack Pearson, Denny Swift. They're real attainable superheroes, that are out there in the open representing good guys and good fathers."

The role of The World's Greatest Detective went to Robert Pattinson, who will make his debut as the DC superhero with The Batman, which is slated for release in 2021.
