Default Give Robin Williams a role

I'm a big fan of Robin.

I felt the way he was treat during the Joker process in B89 was appalling.

He is a terrific actor and I would be ecstatic if he played a role in Batman 3.

So if you're like me and want to show support for Robin,then lets do so.

Robin has good stand-up (some of which is supposedly stolen material) and he's good in SOME roles but Batman is not an area he belongs in. I just could not see him now or ever in a Batman role unless it's along the lines of the campy 60s series. And frankly Nicholson was a perfect 89 Joker, Robin would have brought too much camp to Burton's gothic setting.

Just my 2 cents.

I recently watched Insomnia again, and he is great in that, but he fits a very specific mold that wouldn't really work for Riddler. I could see him as a doctor at Arkham or some other small role though. Definitely not a main villian.

I could see him being Scarface/Ventriloquist in a small role, but he probably wouldn't settle for anything less than being a main villain

Maybe the fact that his name is Robin means that he'll be playing the [Man] Wonder?!

I don't see why the way producers treated him back in 1989 should mean a role for him now.

Buty yes, he's a very good actor and has worked with Nolan before, so why not?

I don't picture him as Riddler, but he could easily play a smaller, much more low-key character. Maybe something like Rupert Thorne or even Penguin, functioning in the story similar to how Falcone and Maroni did in the previous two films.

WB: Jack,we've asked Robin Williams to play the Joker and he said yes,but its really you who we want. So if you dont want the role,it can go to him.
Jack: Fine I'll do it,and you did say I could name my price?
WB: GREAT!! and yes, anything you desire!
Jack: I want Sixty-Milion and royalties on all sold merchandise.
WB: ****!!!!
Jack: What did you say?
WB: Fine...I said...fine...heh-heh.

Shouldn't it be strange that nobody mentioned Strange?

Robin Williams as anything, please. The man is amazing. And we know he loves Batman and have been vowing for a role since forever. Just give him something already.

I ****ing say yes, it's long due, he used as a bait to get Nicholson as The Joker then again used in 1994 When Schumacher wanted Carrey as The Riddler. He's also big fan of Batman and he's a great actor why not give him a role here?

Terrific suggestions in here. Riddler, Rubert Thorne, Ventriloquist, Calendar Man, or even Hugo Strange.

He could play any of these roles. He's a bit too tall for the Penguin though lol

anyone who thinks that Williams will add too much comedy and camp to batman doesn't know anything about Williams. Watch Insomnia, watch 1 Hour Photo or whatever that creepy movie was. Williams can act in more than just comedy, and I don't mean in that awful Jim Carey token "I have to do something besides comedy to show people I'm trying" type of way. The dude can seriously act.

the problem is, people will refuse to see it that way. It would hurt box office, especially since Williams isn't the big hit he used to be. I'd like to see them disguise Williams as a crime lord maybe. Who knows though, I think they missed the boat.
