Re: Next Batman Film Franchise...
I fully agree with that. The Batman movies we've had till now only touched the tip of the iceberg on what can be done with Batman in live-action.
Robin should definitely appear in the reboot. However, it shouldn't feel like "First there is Batman, then he adopts Robin, trains him, and joins him". Robin should feel as a mandatory partner to Batman. They need to explore the purpose of Robin existing in the first place, which is as we all know, is to keep Batman from crossing that line and becoming the Punisher or the Joker. If they do that, the public's perception on Robin will completely change.
