What If 1960s Robin Appeared In 'The Dark Knight Rises'? (VIDEO)

Watching Batman Begins and The Dark Knight again in anticipation of The Dark Knight Rises, you can't help but wonder why The Boy Wonder - that's Robin, by the by - didn't get a mention. If he was good enough for Adam West, he's good enough for Christian Bale, right?

Well, what you're forgetting - and what Above Average Productions' skit here reminds us - is that Robin is a bit of an idiot. Full of silly jokes, bad puns and "Holy something, Batman!" exclamations, he's more than a bit embarrassing.

Seriously, just look at how he dresses. Red, yellow and green? What is he, a Christmas elf? Anyway, just to prove the already obvious point that Robin just doesn't work in the Nolanverse, here's a rather funny sketch about it above and loads more funny sketches about other Batmannery below. Enjoy!
