Director Matt Reeves may be featuring Robin in The Batman, possibly played by 24-year-old Timothée Chalamet.
Rumor and speculation come about from a casting call for The Batman that is requesting the need for "circus skills."
"Circus skills needed in North West England," states the casting call. "We are looking for men & women of all ethnicities aged 17 and up in North West England with Circus skills. Specifically fire dancers, fire breathers, puppet operators or any other circus skills."
Of course, fans of the comics known that Robin is Dick Grayson from the family of acrobats known as the "Flying Graysons."
Chris O'Donnell last played Robin on the big screen in the 1997 Joel Schumacher film, Batman & Robin.
Rumors offer that Dick Grayson was in a draft of The Batman and that Matt Reeves wants to use Robin who is "definitely being set up," though it is unknown if Dick Grayson is in the current draft of the script.
Dick was in a draft, and while he may or may not be in it, he's definitely being set up. Reeves wants to use Robin. https://t.co/KIG5kmNiUg— Vicky Depledge (@TyrantVicky) February 18, 2020
