We’ll be seeing more from the Lego Batman Movie at Comic-Con this week, but we’ve now got our first look at characters in the film beyond Will Arnett’s goofy Dark Knight—and they’re looking a little different from their usual incarnations.
During a Facebook Live interview earlier this week, Warner Brothers toured the new DC Universe: The Exhibit, and might have accidentally revealed the identity of Batman v Superman’s Robin.
In what should honestly not be a surprise to anyone who saw Batman v Superman, it turns out that Batman’s youthful sidekick Robin was also someone who preferred murdering criminals as opposed to sending them through that pesky justice system.
The gay subtext of the relationship between Batman and Robin has been the butt of jokes for decades. Over at Slate, Glen Weldon adapts an extract from his book, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture, that examines the history of Batman’s relationship with Dick Grayson and its homoerotic undertones.
In Batman v Superman, one of the many teases to the larger DC Universe is Bruce Wayne’s Batcave memorial to Robin. Logic, and those ominous laughs painted on the chest, suggest the Joker killed him. Now we have confirmation, as well as a few more details.
Today at WonderCon, DC comics unveiled the creative team rebooting their entire universe in their Rebirth overhaul.
Robin War, DC’s new event series about the army of teens running around Gotham in the name of Batman’s sidekick, is pretty much all about the identity of Robin, and what it means to take on that mantle—but for one Robin in particular, Dick Grayson, it seems like it’s all about another particular mantle.
DC are planning a few changes to their ongoing series ahead of the Convergence event hitting their titles soon, but according to Batman writer Scott Snyder, the end of the Dark Knight's current arc could transform the character, as well as his ward Robin, in some pretty significant ways.
In recent years actors like Michael Keaton and Christian Bale have laid claim to the Batman character in movies, but your parents (or grandparents) are probably more familiar with Adam West's take on the superhero from the campy 1960s TV series. Which means that Mattel's gigantic version of the George Barris-designed…
Holy Erithacus rubecula, Batman! This is just too damn cute. Flickr User CakeInMilk has given Lego Batman - complete with 60's style Lego Batmobile - a new partner in crime: An adorable Robin that looks like... err, Robin!
I... I would have joked about it, but it seemed too absurd to even make fun of. But here we are, and Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller has announced in all apparent seriously that Gotham will feature Robin's ultimate origin, when his acrobat father and mother meet. I have no words.
Thanks to DC's Diamond Previews solicits for January 2015, the next person to step into the green boots of Batman's sidekick Robin has been revealed. Since it's a spoiler, the reveal is after the jump — but I do feel confident the new Robin's identity will not shock you. Something else will, however.
Tim Burton was originally going to helm a third Batman movie after Batman Returns, but the studio bumped him from the director's chair in favor of Batman Forever director Joel Schumacher. But this concept art gives us one possible look for Burton's version of Robin.
There have been a handful of Robins over the years, but thus far, none of them has been a bear. As this animation by Cale Atkinson proves, that's a rather large and hairy oversight.
Get ready for some face-melting adorableness. Illustrator Alex Law has been turning little girls' superhero dreams into comic book reality. It's so sweet, we wish every girl on the planet got this special treatment.
It looks like Carrie Kelley, the female Robin to Grumpy Old Batman in Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns, is joining the DC universe proper. She's on the gatefold cover of Batman and Robin #19 (which comes out next Wednesday) in a Robin costume. Does this mean she'll actually be the next Robin? Maaaaybe.
In a world where everything seems to change — like the look and format of your favorite website — it can be nice to know some things stay the same — like your friendly fake post-apocalyptic mailman. This week, we look at how Gotham City will have the Damian Wayne’s death, an odd amount of Star Wars-related politics,…
It's still a little weird to say out loud, but The CW's Green Arrow show Arrow is good. Like, really good. Like, a perfect match of superheroics, accessibility and non-superheroic drama for mass audiences, and with no need for budget-busting special effects. It's possibly the perfect superhero TV show, and it got us…
My apologies for the lack of a spoiler warning, but DC has gone out of its way to let comics fans know that, if they pick up Grant Morrison's Batman, Inc. #8 this Wednesday, they will read about the death of Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne's assassin-trained son and the current Robin. The news was announced earlier today…
