    Actually, at the end of the move, when they reveal that guy's name to be "Robin", I was expecting them to go with "Tim" or "Dick" or the name of someone who actually was Robin and make it a little less obvious, but no. I still like my idea better lol

    I don't think it was about laziness as it was the amount of people that would even get the reference. this trilogy has been more about rebranding batman for newer audiences than it was about appealing to the comic fans. By leaving it out there that robin picks up where batman left off, audiences are more likely to be content with that feeling of continuity as the movie ends over having to look up who the fuck tim drake is on their phones on their way out :2c:
