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

I haven't watched it enough to find that out, actually.

I'm not sure what their plans are with "The Graysons TV show" but it sounds like their doing the batman story through robin because they can't actually do batman for some reason. Thats why I came up with... Dick Grayson becoming robin on his own, then later after batman finds him, he becomes Nightwing. I understand how stupid it sounds. I don't want that to happen, but that might be what the shows writers are thinking.

Robin doesn't work in the realistic world because its child endangerment. You can't let a little kid go into battle. Its unethical and wrong and batman nor Alfred nor the entire police department would allow such a thing to happen.

I personally never really loved the Robin character either but I do realize that their are many people who do love the idea of the "dynamic duo". I don't believe that Robin {or Batgirl} will ever be in a Nolan Batman movie but if they decided it was time you would have to make certain real world changes. Robin would never go into battle with Batman until he was atleast 16 or 17 years old. His main purpose would be intel for Batman {simaler to Oracle in current continuity}. He would remain in the Batcave during missions and provide support from there to assist Batman. Robin would have to train {multiple disciplines} for years before ever being allowed to enter a potentially dangerous scenerio.
The master/apprentice scenerio could work very well on film if tackled properly but its just ridiculous having a 11 or 12 year old go out on patrol and fight real criminals.

Yeah how bout just no Robin or Batgirl in Nolan films? Neither was a great character to begin with, and I just don't see him including them.

They're both fine characters, but they would never work in the context of Nolan's films.

I've heard a similar argument against kid sidekicks.

After what happened to Brian Douglas?? There's no way there will be a Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, or anyone. Although. I could see Bruce taking in a child orphaned by crime and eventually teaching him to be his replacement when he gets old enough.

From the view of the girl, and the fact that the actress chosen to play her was about 7 or 8 years old at filming, I'd go more with, if there is a jump in time during the next film (or so) of a little less than a decade, then we could very well see Batgirl.

Preferrably, I would rather not see either, especially in the next film. I'd much rather see each character get their own related spin-off films, possibly including Batman in them and definitely related to this Universe, but not in Batman's series of movies.

7, seriously? I thought the film takes place about 6 months after BB. And wasn't Barbara(the wife) holding a very small child in the climax?

It takes place 1 year after [or a bit more] after the end of Begins.

In TDK? No, the actress is an older child. She's eight years old right now, from what I've read.

i woudnt mind if in batman 4 (at the earliest) if they introduced a vigilante around batman's age in BB whose name is nightwing whom batman tries to discourage. it would be a subplot but a nod to robin fans.

I would honestly be more interested in Batgirl than Robin to be honest. So if they ever did go for Batgirl over Robin, talking way way later down the road, I'd like that.

The Sidekicks, to be honest, just are neither interesting enough or needed enough as far as Nolan's series goes.

They aren't needed at this point in time, plain and simple.

Agreed. Nolan's series will end after the next one, and then we'll probably get another reboot ten years from then, from a guy who does wanna put in Robin.

Nolan said Robin would be a few movies away, if at all. This strengthens my belief that Robin could only be introduced because Batman has been at it for awhile, is getting older and slowing down, and needs some help and someone to train as a replacement.
