Re: Robin or no Robin?
I think a Robin can work in a Batman franchise. To me he doesn't have to be a child, but a younger teen is fine. Being a teen things can be conflicting wondering who you are; with a young Robin, Batman helps instill a choice to let him find out who and what he wants to be. I think a very clever writer can in corporate Robin into this type of franchise while still keeping it dark and serious.
