Default Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3

I realize this has already been pointed out, but multiple scripts Burton was part of for both BATMAN and BATMAN RETURNS featured Robin in them before the character was cut out. Burton did sketches of Batman and Robin, and, as has been pointed out, Wayans was cast at one point, and Burton did have some input into Tim Drake's Robin costume. To say he had no interest in the character is absurd.
