    This is my thought on it.

    The child was in the movie for three reasons, really.

    1.) To show just how bad the narrows really were. He was a neglected child, standing out in the rain with his parents fighting and hollering inside the house. He wasn't a bitter kid, he was hopeful, even in the rain with his fueding parents. He represtented the goodness in Gotham that Batman was fighting for.

    2.) Batman has always been loved by children. This was a tribute to all of the young fans that have loved Batman for the ages. He was there to give a child's perspective of the Dark Knight. He saw what the adults couldn't. He saw that the Batman was a hero, "Batman will save us."

    3.) He was an homage to the character of Robin. Not of any specific incarnation of Robin, be it Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, or Tim Drake -- but rather just a generic homage to the character. He wore a red short sleeve shirt, with a longsleeve greyish green shirt underneath, he gave hope to Batman, and depended on him in a time of need.

    The character of "Narrow's Child" was in the film Batman Begins for these reason. Will he ever become Robin? Absolutely not. Was he a tribute to the fans, and of the character of Robin? Yes. Is that all that a Robin fan needs? From a genesis movie of Batman, yes.

    Jeez, I came into this thread thinking it was going to suck. But, miraculously, it didn't.

    Robin91939, that was a great post. I never even noticed the colors of the kid's clothes, but now that you point that out, I have to agree with all three of your points as opposed to just the first two. Well said.

    And then, just to frost the cake, El Payaso and Mee made me laugh. :up:

    Nolan has stated the purpose of the Narrow's kid and the "nice coat" homeless man. they represent the regular person, and how they react to Batman. It's one thing to see cops and criminals reacting to the presence of a costumed vigilante, but how do the regular people of Gotham react? How would you react if you watched a guy dressed like a bat pull a guy from a car, headbutt him, and fly into the night sky after admiring your coat?

    BIG FAT NOOOOO TO ROBIN.

    I concur that kid was an acknowledgment to the kiddy market that looks up to Batman as their hero.

    Yes he will be Robin. The Joker is going to find the child, it was Dick Grayson, since the first movie, the Graysons joined the circus and learned how to be trapeze performers.

    But one night the Joker robs the circus box office and on his way out he kills Dick's parents. Then the Boy becomes Robin.

    Then they become the dynamic duo and have many merry adventures.
