Actually, is there an "official" age at which Bruce puts on the suit for the first time in the comics?
I don't think there's an exact age but it's generally his late twenties.

We saw his parents die in all the other movies. Honestly, you could take the Blade II approach where he gives a quick 3 minute As You Know speech before going to Bat face kicking.
Okay, so he's not like, a teenager or anything. Though I tend to forget that Pattinson isn't that young anymore.
And how about a version where at least one of his parents is still alive?
Wouldn’t that ruin his origin?
Well, it's Gotham we're talking about. Finding a different trigger for his vigilantism can't be that hard.
Make Thomas Batman after he got tired of how much of a hellhole the city is.
Too bad no Thomas or Martha Bat. It could make for a good story in itself. Rich, young, idealistic couple tries to improve the city upfront, but the mob and the corrupt... everything blocks their work, so they decide Gotham needs some drastic measures to take the power from them.
The dead parents are too important a part of the backstory for that to be changed. They'll always be six feet under unless it's some sort of drastic Elseworlds type of tale.

Well then like btas. We could always just not show the deaths. That would be a really nice change.
Notes regarding details:

My question,if there's batman will there be a Robin?
Save it for the sequel.
Zoe Kravitz has praised Pattison’s acting although notes they’re mostly doing screen testing so far.
Funny enough, her and Pattison have been friends for a decade according to her but this is their first time working together professionally.
That means they should have pretty good chemistry on screen then, so that's good.
I feel like they’re also trying to pre-emptively get in front of the “Edward Cullen” hate. Pattison is a good actor, he was just stuck in a bunch of bad movies that didn’t let him show his skill off. I’m sure he’ll be good for the role, since it’s suggested we’re moving into more noir than hyper-realism or MILLER RAGE, which is a different approach.

Wasn't there an AU episode in TAS about exactly that…? Or am I misremembering?
If BVS is still technically canon… I don't know if we want that. Then again, it seems like Jared Leto won't be coming back, so there's little chance we see Robin's death now…

Friendly reminder that Patteson hates twilight too. So bashing him on that role seems bad.
This is probably why no one was really hating on him, and definitely not to the levels Affleck got. (Pattinson said he got it way worse from Twilight fans). I hear good things from his smaller roles, he can clearly do brooding, so I think he’ll be fine.
Can we talk about the collar? It’s...a lot different from your average costume with the cowl. I presume it makes it easier to mold a mask that won’t tear when he turns his head?
The sad thing with affleck is that he was never even given a film of his own to fully prove himself.
Which is a shame because his daredevil movie is not really that bad(is like your regular marvel movie, just sightly edgier) and I feel he was excelent as batman.
Affleck was saddled with being in a movie headed by Snyder, who had a vision most people didn't like, so despite him doing his best with what he was given, it just didn't work out. Evidently he wasn't satisfied with that and eventually dropped out as a result. Hard to blame him for that.
Giving snyder full reigns over most of the dceu was bound to cause issues.
Which is a shame because I actually like the idea of batman being alread a veteran rather than have to stick with him at first....again.
