Just because Robin is not in doesn't mean a cameo by Dick Grayson or a Nightwing won't be. Most likely they won't be, but Robin has been said as a definite no thus far.

Maybe a modified Tumbler than seperates and turns into a glider (haven't we had this in James Bond at some point?)

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I think that this interview may already have been linked to but while Neeson says he hasn't been asked to return, he says he'd like to. Interesting:

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Why are we still talking about Robin? As has been said many times in this thread Nolan stated back during Begins junkets that Dick wasn't even a thought in his parents heads yet. .He will not be in the film.

Nobody can make an annoying kid sidekick work. It has never ever worked anywhere.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Go read "Dark Victory". Jeph Loeb makes it work. If Nolan wanted to...and the key word is want...there is an example of a great Dick Grayson origin story that handles it with maturity and emotional depth that fits like a glove in his world. Since he already referenced that book in previous interviews as being a source of the material there was never any intention on his part of using the character. He wanted to focus on Bruce Wayne.

^ Yeah, Dark Victory is pretty damn good, even if I never want to see Robin in a Batmovie.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Scott Beaty's Robin Year One is also excellent. Kind of loosely delves off from 'Dark Victory'.

I'm sure that anyone who's ever tried to take surface streets through a city to get somewhere quickly would understand that being able to travel above the fray would be a huge advantage.

I would think something along the lines of a (stealth) harrier jet would get the job done. It'd get Batman where he needs to go quite quickly, and allow him to land and take off reasonably close to where he needs to be.

Dark Victory proved Robin could work.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Law and the Multiverse has some things to say about the practicality of Batplanes, Blackbirds, and other superhero aviation:

http://lawandthemultiverse.com/2010/...-registration/
http://lawandthemultiverse.com/2011/...affic-control/

The upshot: if Batman used an unregistered aircraft with no flight plan filed in advance, he'd be in violation of federal law the moment he left the ground. And he couldn't file a flight plan without giving Air Traffic Control his name, his address, and the location he took off from. And as soon as he took off in an unauthorized aircraft on an unauthorized trajectory, he would be spotted and have military aircraft sent after him. Isn't he in enough trouble with the law already as of the end of The Dark Knight?
