Default Re: The Alfred Pennyworth Casting Thread

Im glad we didn't get the teenage Robin in the Nolan-verse. And I quite liked their take on him. It was a nice homage to Tim Drake and Dick Grayson and even Frank Miller who created his own Robin for his story. Nolan did the same.

I don't think WB has the confidence in a teenage Robin who is Batman's sidekick, wearing a cape and mask. I just don't see it happening. Maybe references.

I imagine WB are too scared and have nightmares of Batman & Robin and Joel Shumacher's face. Unfortunately I see the same problem with Mr. Freeze.

"Lets make one thing very clear here - Nolan's films are as faithful an adaptation as there is. It pays homage to its source material, remains true to its characters and above all else places the story first and foremost." - jmc
