^ Oh oops...bad job on me for not reading correctly. I still disagree though. I realize that audiences would probably have a hard time rationalizing a 13 year old side kick but then maybe the compromise is having him 14 or 15. I really truly believe it would work handled by someone who can appreciate the character and the material. *Shrugs*. This reminds me of that old Robin thread that was around a few years ago. This is when this topic was first brought up I think. Probably sometime in between "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight".
It would be tough to pull off successfully. Maybe if they had Robin already active and being an older teen to begin with (kinda how they did in B:TAS), people could buy it a little better.
Again, I really liked the idea they went with in Forever/B&R
. While it is not the only
approach, I think that was the right one at that time to take for a tricky character like that. Now, if the storyline (B&R
in particular) serviced the character better...
I've not heard any rumours about a live action television series...if they did have one, they'd have to finally lift the Bat-Embargo.
I remember hearing something like that 2 or 3 years ago. It is probably bunk as WB is likely concentrating on TDKR more than anything else. If there is an idea for a show, I bet it is in the back of their minds at the moment.
