The majority of the general audience don't know Robin's name by heart. Most don't know "Dick Grayson" they just know Robin. These films are not made for fanboys theyre made with the general audience in mind.
I know people who have seen the 60s series and in the 90s seen Batman Forever like once. And they couldn't tell me who Robin's name was.
You guys have to stop thinking that these movies revolve around the fans. Because they don't. We're an EXTREMELY SMALL PERCENTAGE. It's the same as the GA knowing who Wonder Woman is of course, but the majority wouldn't be able to tell us that her name is "Diana Prince".
They're aimed at both from what I get. At least certainly no exclusively at the general audience.
