THE BATMAN Starring Robert Pattinson May Also End Up Introducing A New Robin

Robert Pattinson is officially suiting up as the Dark Knight in The Batman and a new report claims that the Matt Reeves helmed release will also introduce a new Robin! Hit the jump to find out more...

Since yesterday, a number of reliable outlets have confirmed that Robert Pattinson has closed a deal to star as Bruce Wayne in The Batman. However, there are now rumblings that Robin could also end up making an appearance in the DC Comics adaptation. 

According to Forbes, there are indeed plans for The Penguin and Catwoman to appear and they will be joined by new versions of The Riddler, Alfred Pennyworth, and Commissioner Gordon (which presumably means we can expect Jeremy Irons and J.K. Simmons to be recast for the reboot). 

However, what's really interesting is the fact that Robin is also among those expected to appear.

This is very much a rumour for now but it's about time the Boy Wonder return to the big screen. Whether that's a good idea in a movie that needs to introduce a new Batman is hard to say but if this movie is in any way tied to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (and it probably won't be based on what we've heard), we could end up seeing Jason Todd working alongside Pattinson's Caped Crusader.

Either way, with Reeves reportedly planning an entire trilogy of Batman films, he could easily introduce one of the Robins in The Batman and have their story play out over the course of those. 

We'll have to wait and see but it would certainly be interesting seeing a modern day take on the Dynamic Duo, especially as the last time they were paired up on screen was way back in 1997!
