Robert Pattinson Wants Robin In The Batman 2 (Only Under One Condition)

With less than a month left for the release of The Batman, the promotion for the movie is going strong. There is a lot of hype and excitement for this project as it will be a whole new look and take on the Caped Crusader and the world surrounding him. We will get to see Batman take on some of his enemies in a very grounded narrative that might be a lot more different from what we have seen before. Fans are already wondering about all the characters that we will get to see in the movie and how it might even pave the way for the future of the character. Robert Pattinson recently revealed that he would love to see Robin in The Batman 2 but only under a certain condition.

One of the biggest things about the caped crusader is regarding the antagonist that he has to come across. There are a lot of narratives that could be explored just on the basis of the antagonist. But ever since we have seen the teasers and trailers for the movie, there is a lot of secrecy surrounding the antagonist being played by Paul Dano. The first teaser didn’t even show him and that only excited us regarding his appearance in the movie. According to the latest information available on the character, it seems that things are going to get a lot more personal for Bruce Wayne.


This just goes to show how much the people behind the movie worked on their material for the movie. There are a lot of things we will get to see as spinoffs to the movie itself with shows based on the characters. It is not yet known if we will get to see a sequel to the movie itself but we can be sure to theorize the possibility of that happening. Robert Pattinson himself has indicated he’s interested in bringing some exciting narratives to be explored in a possible sequel to The Batman. It seems that Pattinson and Reeves are also excited about the possible narratives we might get to witness in the sequels.

While speaking at a special panel event in Los Angeles, The Batman star Robert Pattinson shared his enthusiasm regarding the sequel to the movie. It is fairly obvious that when we talk about Batman we cannot forget to mention his sidekick Robin. When asked if we will get to see the latter appear in the sequel, Pattinson joked about the idea. He said:

Yeah, but he has to be 13. That’s the only way I’ll accept it. No, I love Death in the Family and stuff, but I think it’d be so cool. Also people are so scared of it, but it’s kind of exciting. I think it would be a really fun addition.


It is fairly obvious that he wants to explore the dark narrative of Jason Todd’s death in the 1988 comic book storyline. The character ends up dying in the hands of the infamous Batman antagonist Joker. Matt Reeves actually shared the same enthusiasm as Pattinson about the narrative but at the same time joked about not adding Robin to this franchise of Batman. He said:

Yeah, there’s no way. We won’t do that. No, I’m kidding. Yeah, totally, I agree with that. The thing about doing a Batman movie is it’s scary to do a Batman movie. Because, first of all, there’ve been great ones, and also every single one of you has a vision of Batman in your head. And so we’re competing with the vision that… I mean, one of the things I was doing when I was writing, I was walking down the street one day, and I suddenly noticed, I was like, “Oh my God, Batman sweatshirt. Oh my God, Batman cap.” You literally, if you just notice it, I mean I was talking to some round tables today, people have their Batman shirts on.

With Pattinson showing his interest in exploring the narrative of Court of Owls too, it seems that we are headed for some really dark material in the future of the franchise. While it is not yet known if we will actually get a sequel, the success of the movie might pave the way for it. The Batman will be released in theaters worldwide on March 4.
