But Robin in TDKR was a massive success and every time I left the cinema people were looking forward to future films about Robin.
There was no Robin in TDKR. That's why it worked.
And while well received, I very much doubt anyone wants to see Robin the way it was done in 1966.

I didn't say i can't work.I just say that Robin working in animation (or comics for that matter) doesn't mean he will work in movies.
