Re: Robin or no Robin?
Don't set the next series at the beginning of Bruce's career. Set it about 5 years in. Tim is Robin, but has a fairly small role. Base the film on Jason's return to Gotham as Red Hood with Nightwing in a supporting role. Have the film explore the importance of Robin as a concept to Batman and how each of his sons affect his psyche, move away from the myth that Batman is a loner, it's the biggest piece of crap in comic book myths next to "Superman is boring".
