As every comic geek knows: The times, they are a-changing in Gotham City. Robin (Dick Grayson) is now Batman. Bruce Wayne's bratty, illegitimate child Damian is now Robin. And darling fan-fave/pretty-boy Tim Drake (Robin #3) now calls himself Red Robin and hides his hotness under a hood. All the while the original Batman is being tossed around in time, sometimes becoming Caveman Batman, sometimes Pirate Batman, or Wild West Batman, you just never know. It's all very exciting, of course, and COMPLETELY impossible to fold into Christopher Nolan's mythology, I know, I know. He hasn't even acknowledged Robin #1, much less Robins # 2-4 (or Dick's side gig as Nightwing). But a girl can dream. So here are my fantasy casting ideas for the different boy wonders.
TOP ROW: While watching Piranha 3D, I was struck by how perfect Steven R McQueen would be as the brooding, puppy-eyed Tim Drake, who makes all the homo fan-boys so moist.
MIDDLE ROW: The creepy, big-headed new Robin would be perfectly played by that creepy, big-headed kid from The Middle, Atticus Shaffer.
BOTTOM ROW: And the dreamy, homo-erotic pinup boy Dick Grayson could ONLY be played by the dreamy, homo pinup boy Matt Bomer of White Collar.
What do you think? I nailed it, right? Christopher Nolan ARE YOU READING THIS?
