Robert Downey Jr seems to be ahead on the super-hero game even if he is no longer part of the super-hero franchise. The Iron Man actor for over a decade made his final appearance in Avengers: Endgame back in 2019.

The host began talking about all of the previous actors who performed Batman over the years. Once Robert Pattinson's name came up, the Iron Man star confessed his personal eagerness towards Pattinson's interpretation towards the role of the dark avenger.

"I wanna see what Pattinson does,” Joe Rogan confessed. "I like that guy," the Avengers: Endgame actor revealed.

The star went on to say, "Now that I’m middle-aged, to be honest, you start looking at the back nine and you go, ‘Oh, this is part of the journey as you…that things end.’ You know, everyone is going somewhere."
