agreed, she's still too young for that. I don't think we'll see Batgirl or Robin in Nolan's series.

How do we know it'll even be Barbara? It could be Cassandra.

No, I don't think Nolan wants Batman to have Batgirl, nevermind Robin. And yeah, just like 'Abaddon' said, she will be pretty small so there's not really and point at all.

agreed. robin is an outdated character and doesnt work when you are trying to take this stuff seriously. i know many will disagree but i dont think it works in the comics either. i have trouble reading anything with robin in it.

I'll agree

The idea of Robin is reckless in 21st century terms and overall tone of the comics and movies. I don't think there's anyway to make him work in the Nolanverse.

I argued back in '89 that I couldn't see Batman dragging a kid into his world, but nobody listened then, either.

The idea of introducing Batgirl before Robin reminds me too much of that godawful "The Batman" cartoon show

Please no Robin or Batgirl period. Just not a good thing for this franchise. Stay away from the bat nipples and side kicks please.

I think that would be even less well-received.

That's what I thought. Bad art, bad voices, bad stories. Just bad.
