Thank you! Don't get me wrong, I love the Nolan movies just the way they are and I actually think it was best for Robin to not be involved in those films, but as for future films, I definitely want to see Robin again. I have always had the opinion that Robin is a very underrated character. I get so infuriated when I hear people immediately flip out and start thinking about Robin from the '60s with the little green shoes and little green underwear. This is a different time and I think that the character can be a great one if done correctly. The Robin in Arkham City, for example, was a good design and characterization, in my opinion. Something like that could be great in a film.
The Nolan films were great, but now it's time to do Batman films which allow us to see things that we were restricted from seeing in the Nolan films because of the way the world was designed. Robin is one of the biggest things that should be included. I also think Robin is a huge part of the Bruce Wayne/Batman story and the character shouldn't just be discarded as "cheesy" or "gay". Here's to hoping that Robin one day gets a chance to shine like the character deserves to.
