    Blake was merely a tribute to the concept of Robin.

    yeah...I didn't like that at all. It was lame and a cop out to where they didn't have to actually include Robin. Go all out or don't do it at all

    I completely agree, Kal-el, here's hoping this time around we get a proper Robin.

    Im glad we didn't get the teenage Robin in the Nolan-verse. And I quite liked their take on him. It was a nice homage to Tim Drake and Dick Grayson and even Frank Miller who created his own Robin for his story. Nolan did the same.

    I don't think WB has the confidence in a teenage Robin who is Batman's sidekick, wearing a cape and mask. I just don't see it happening. Maybe references.

    I imagine WB are too scared and have nightmares of Batman & Robin and Joel Shumacher's face. Unfortunately I see the same problem with Mr. Freeze.

    I can't believe I get to be the first person to suggest Idris Elba in a casting thread.

    But seriously, (sort of) what about Adam West as Alfred?

    My two top choices to play Alfred are Terence Stamp and Max von Sydow. Michael Gambon would be good as well.

    I think Pierce Brosnan would be a greattttt choice, especially if this movie is going with a younger Batman. Brosnan's ass kicking version of Alfred would be there to help pick up the slack for him, guide him along this journey ("if you're going to do it, we're going to do it right" sort of attitude from him)

    If were going for a somewhat younger Alfred, then David Tennant would be my choice.

    He's never been really brought up. But I think Jonathan Pryce would do a good job

    Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton and Jonathan Pryce were all suggested for the role? Might as well throw Judi Dench in there :oldrazz:.
