THE BATMAN - PART II Rumored To Introduce Robin/Dick Grayson

Another The Batman - Part II rumor here, and this time we're hearing that Matt Reeves' upcoming sequel will introduce a new version of Dick Grayson/Robin...

Following last night's report about The Batman - Part II's potential production start date and Clayface's involvement, we have another, far juicier rumor about another classic Batman character.

MTTSH is now claiming that Matt Reeves' highly-anticipated sequel will introduce a new take on the original Robin, Dick Grayson.

There has only been one previous big-screen incarnation of Grayson, Chris O'Donnell in Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, but the character has appeared in numerous animated projects, as well as the likes of Titans and the classic '60s Batman TV series.

If accurate, Robin's involvement would be somewhat surprising, since Robert Pattinson's Bruce Wayne wasn't supposed to have been operating as Batman for very long in the first film. Of course, there could be a significant time jump before the events of the sequel.

When the new DCU slate was announced, James Gunn confirmed that Reeves' "BatVerse" will remain separate from the DCU, so this movie, along with Todd Phillips' Joker sequel, will be considered "Elseworlds" tales. A new actor will down the cape and cowl for Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which will also feature a different take on Robin - The Caped Crusader's son, Damian Wayne.

Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright, and Colin Farrell are all expected to reprise their respective roles, and we may also see the return of Barry Keoghan's Joker, who made his sinister debut in the first movie's mid-credits scene.

Plot details are still under wraps. All Reeves would offer is that his sequel will continue this "epic crime saga."

Considering the tone, I wonder if they're going to age him up. I also found it kind of funny how you have Batman be all about stealth and then you've got the kid wearing a colorful suit.

@Highflyer - Yeah he will be 18 minimum. I think they could use his training to explore this Batman’s backstory. I don’t mean his origin, but who trained this Batman and how was his early days.

@Highflyer @Knightrider - I never liked the idea of Bruce Wayne employing an underage kid to fight crime anyway, so I definitely wouldn't mind it if Grayson is 18 already

@Highflyer - Honestly I think it’d be really interesting to give this weirdo barely functioning version of Bruce a kid that he has to be a big brother/father figure for. I’m hoping for 13-15.

@Highflyer - depends on their approach.

If Bruce or Alfred make him a suit so he can fight crime, then I'd say no.

But I did have an idea for dick Grayson being introduced in the finale of my personal idea for a gritty batman. But the idea is the second movie ends with batman failing to stop the death of the Graysons and Bruce adopts dick in the third movie. Mostly the idea is dick is considered Bruce's way out of his crime fighting ways by finding happiness in being a father. But dick discovers the batcave and becomes intrigued by the prospect of fighting crime. He makes a suit of his own and assists in the final battle (though in a way you'd imagine a kid would help), then Bruce agrees to train dick as his successor.

@Highflyer - robin was never meant to be batman's equal... he was always a distraction, target practice so batman could sneak in.

@Highflyer - They could make him older and give him more of the Nightwing suit.

@JonC - Where is this "always" from? Not from the first 60ish years of Dick Grayson's assistant. Robin wore bright colors to honor his family's circus colors.

Guessing he will be 14 at the youngest

Hopefully not played by a 20 something year old that looks his age

If true, then I hope he doesn't don a costume until later.

Gunn probably pissed he can't cancel this 😅🤣

If this is true, Reeves will beat Gunn to the punch with introducing Robin & certain iterations of Batman's rogues.

I don’t know. I feel like they should keep Robin out of this and just focus on him being in the DCU. I may of course warm up to the idea as time goes by.
