Right, to say that he had no interest would be wrong, but ultimately, he didn't believe the character fit into either of those films or the world that he was portraying. I can't imagine the Burton-Keaton Batman with a Robin. And it's not because I hate Robin; I do prefer a Batman who fights solo (and you know what I mean by solo - obviously Alfred and Gordon should always be there), but that Batman with a Robin? Can't see it. And neither could Burton, ultimately.

Do not accept checks from:
Chief Wiggum - Reverend Lovejoy - Homer J. Simpson - Homer S. Simpson - H.J. Simpson - Homor Simpson - Homer J. Fong
