Re: Robin in a Batman movie

Who is that as Robin? I like that costume design, it is recognizably Robin, but very much fits the Nolanverse style.

Re: Robin in a Batman movie

"Robin" looks like the kid in school who would always dump your books with the emo hairstyle. I want to punch him in the face more than I want to root for him as a hero.

Ohhh, love that idea. Remember the Onstar commercial with the Batmobile? That's what your idea reminds me of.
It reminds you of that and not Jarvis in Iron Man? Because that's what it's going to remind every other person who sees the movie of.

I don't know. I just found the pic somewhere and thought it was pretty good.

Re: Robin in a Batman movie

The entire concept of Batman taking on a child (!) protege is flawed, to say nothing of the identity/costume of "Robin".

Various media have tried to legitimize the concept. Some comic writers have done a passable job (Loeb/Sale for instance, among others), artists and video games have made his costume seem less ridiculous (Arkham City for example), but none of them have transcended what's a flawed overall concept.

I'm sure someone will attempt it with the next reboot, but I'd rather they just let the character disappear into oblivion.

Actually, to be honest, Jarvis didn't even come to mind.

Re: Robin in a Batman movie

Any kid standing next to Batman is going to look like a useless douche by comparison. He especially would not have worked in a Nolan movie. The idea that a kid with no powers could be of any use to a nutter in a bulletproof suit, is even more absurd than the concept of Batman itself.

Great picture!! I thinks this shows that Robin could really work in the Nolan universe. Too bad we won't be seeing this.

I just hope when they reboot Batman they include Robin at some point.

What I would like to see is a Batman movie set in the 1930s or 1940s maybe that would make Robin more plausible for those that don't think he should be included.

Re: Robin in a Batman movie

I don't think a Batman set in the 30s or 40s would work for me (it'd make the Bat-technology a bit less plausible and more out of reach.) But I'd like to see it in the present with Gotham having a stylized look of a gothic 1930s/1940s. Just like I'd like to see a Superman movie set in the present but also with style inspiration of mid-century Americana.

I would agree to that too.

Bloody hell, that bat-outfit is awful.

Also, that Robin looks like a Twilight emo-douche.

Indeed he does. Though I'm pretty sure the batsuit is an unaltered Nolan-verse one.

Kevin J. Anderson wrote a really good book that featured both Superman and Batman meeting each other for the first time and set it in the 50's, with the cold war being a major component. It stripped everything back to its roots and felt more down-to-earth. The technology felt more plausible too. In a way, it felt a bit like a Superman and Batman reboot, with the Batman part feeling quite a bit like what we got with Nolan's Batman Begins. It was a fun refreshing read.

From what I can tell, the batsuit is unaltered while the Robin suit is a mirrored colorized version of the batsuit with the embossed bat symbol removed. And I'm not too fond of the suit either. It's too busy.

I disagree. I think he looks pretty cool. Yeah I am not too crazy about the Batsuit, it is a bit busy.
