Maybe not Robin, but I think a Dick Grayson might be a good possibility.

What I mean was its possible to have the Dick Grayson character, back story and relationship with Bruce/Batman but have him stop short of becoming Robin.

I think it'd be pointless to have one without the other.

& Bale's Batman feels far too young to have a 'ward' at this stage anyway.

This will be the last film in any case. I think if you're going to have Robin in a Batman franchise he deserves a lot more time, maybe even a few films to give you more development. Leave it for the next guy.

Rumours regarding Catwoman/Selina Kyle featuring in the new film. The source is dubious though, given how secretive Nolan is over his films it seems unlikely that he'd leave this sort of information lying around...

Filmshaft for the "scoop".

Loco Am I the only one not impressed by Nolan & Bale

I liked the new Batman movies but to be honest the animated version is better. Using the Joker as they did, did not impress me, Less of him on screen would have been better. Two Face was wasted being a bit player and the silly voice Batman uses is just annoying.

But

If the story is a good one and the Characters are not too out of their comic character then it should be good.

ie The Cat woman - a cat burgerler who prides herself in never killing. Have we ever scene that on screen?

Could he not groom a young Dick to be his Boy Wonder?

Hey it was in the comics:



Anyway as aprot rightly points out the Bale Batman is far too young to have a Robin. If you introduce a teenager then it's silly (why would he risk an innocent when we've seen how violent the Nolan version is) if you introduce a man then it doesn't fit with Bruce's lonely life.

Nolan won't give in to pressure like Sam Raimi did adding Venom to Spider-man 3. The WB exes seem a bit more sensible letting Nolan do what he thinks is best for Batman and its paying off in terms of quality and box office.

Surely you mean The Dark Knight, given it was the sixth biggest movie of all time or whatever? I'd imagine Inception has the power to remove that cheque more than anything.

Nah, Inception was a unknown film that has made a tremendous amount of money and has been top of the UK box office for three weeks now. It shows that Nolan is successful regardless of having famous source material.

I'm pretty sure he had a blank cheque with The Dark Knight anyway really, but the success of Inception definately puts him in a very strong position.

I didn't really think it had been 'blank cheque' successful. It's made back it's budget I thought but it had a pretty big budget.

That said I'm trying to think of anything comparable in blockebuster terms that's original and I'm not sure I can. Even The Matrix was based on a graphic novel or something, wasn't it?

That's like the Bat Signal for Max *listens for sound of approachin MaxMobile*

I dont think it was based on anything though, think it was an "original" creation.
