Robin really can’t intercept a significant-screen opportunity, recent news from the set of Batman confirms. Robin the Boy Wonder is undoubtedly an integral part of the Batman comic canon.
The original Walk, Dick Grayson, was introduced long ago in the history of The Capped Crusaders’ publication, and the likes of Jason Todd and Damian Wayne are some of DC’s most popular and memorable Batman arcs.
Unluckily, Robin has found great joy in the cinematic arena. In Batman Forever, starring Chris O’Donnell, Robin was synonymous with the repeatedly spoiled Joel Schumacher Batman films; Camp of Adam West and Burt Ward An exhausting character of the 1960s with green tights and punishments.
Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy was the famous anti-robin, with Christian Bale not particularly keen to explore that element of his character’s comic past. Nolan’s Batman films closest to Robin’s interpretation were Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s John Blake, he was orphaned by Bruce Wayne as an heir and revealed Robin’s name at the end of the film.
Batman was constantly suggesting to the director with rumors that he would surprise a young boy. As of October last year, reports claimed that Robin would appear in Batman, and actors such as Timothy Chalamet have repeatedly been associated with the role.
Although Pattinson was not far short of Michael Keaton or Christian Bale, Robert Pattinson still feels like a teenage heartthrob actor when, playing the role, to many, he remains Edward Cullen of the Twilight franchise.
Because of this youthful belief, Pattinson became the father of an orphaned pre-teen and was passing on his skills and experience (all two years), a concept that Batman would not easily sell.
Bruce Wayne is still fairly new to the game of crime-fighting in Batman, and this means that any notion of taking on an apprentice is quite unlikely. Ben Affleck was already set to play the title symbol in The Batman, and his entire DCEU arc turned round Robin’s dying to work with superheroes encore.
