THE BATMAN Looking For Extras With "Circus Skills"; Could We See The Flying Graysons In The Movie?

THE BATMAN Looking For Extras With "Circus Skills"; Could We See The Flying Graysons In The Movie?

A casting call has gone out for extras with a variety of circus skills and, as you might expect, speculation is running rampant that Bruce Wayne could visit Haly's Circus, the home of The Flying Graysons!

There have been rumblings for a while now that Matt Reeves is planning to introduce a new version of Robin in his The Batman trilogy, but do we now have our first hints that this may indeed the case? 

Well, some fans are certainly convinced that's what's happening after a casting call has been put out by Warner Bros. looking for extras and actors with circus skills. Based on this description, it's hard to imagine there not being a circus setting in the DC Comics adaptation which stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader. 

With that in mind, it's entirely feasible that Bruce Wayne will pay a visit to Haly's Circus.

It would certainly make for an effective ending if Bruce were to witness the murders of The Flying Graysons before taking Dick under his wing, and setting the stage for Robin to appear in the sequel.

The Batman is shrouded in secrecy, and it was last September when Forbes reported that Reeves has plans for characters like Robin and Batgirl. This is by no means confirmation that there are plans for Dick Grayson on the big screen, of course, but it certainly lends some weight to those early reports. 

What do you guys think? 

Dick Grayson might be in the film from r/DCEUleaks

Yes, that does appear to be stitching on Batman's mask and it's oddly reminiscent of what Adam West wore in the classic TV series. 

With no ears on display, it's fair to say this doesn't look very Batman-esque. If you imagine them, though, then it's easy enough to see what Reeves is going for with this take on the hero. 

Unfortunately, unfavourable comparisons to a gimp mask could also be made...

The nose on the mask isn't overly pronounced, and that's probably why there have been so many comparisons to Daredevil. 

However, what we're really interested in looking at in this shot is that collar (which appears to be connected to the hero's cape). It's something completely different to what we've seen in the past and easy to see why those rumours claimed that Lee Bermejo's work was an influence here.

Something everyone seems to love about this costume is that it appears to be heavily armoured. It's an awesome look for the Caped Crusader, and one that worked wonderfully in the Arkham series of video games. 

It looks like a heavy suit, and one which will definitely protect Batman while he fights criminals in Gotham City.

There's also a "homemade" feel of sorts to the suit which definitely makes it feel like Bruce Wayne has made this suit alongside Alfred Pennyworth rather than with Wayne Industries' tech.

Now, a lot of fans have theorised that the Bat-symbol on the World's Greatest Detective's suit is possibly a Batarang that he's able to remove and throw at his enemies.

It's a fun and undeniably plausible theory, but we have another idea about what significance it has to the hero in this particular take on the iconic DC Comics character.

Look closely at that "logo" and it actually looks like it's been made from parts of a gun. 

Comic book fans will be all too aware that the Dark Knight hates those (Ben Affleck's version of the hero using them was a real issue for fans), and it would make sense for that symbol on his chest to have been made from the gun Joe Chill used to kill his parents. 

It's also pretty twisted and dark, but Bruce Wayne isn't the most stable of people...

Robert Pattinson isn't a huge guy, but this armoured Batsuit appears to have given the impression that he is, and there's no denying that he appears to be a physically imposing version of the hero.

It's a shame we don't get a better look at the cape but it seems to be comic accurate.
