Not that Christian Bale or Christopher Nolan ever gave us reason to doubt them, but we’ve gotten ever more proof that the duo is committed to keeping another certain duo off screen for good. Though this quote from doesn’t come with any context, I imagine Bale followed it with a big sarcastic grin: “If Robin crops up in one of the new Batman films, I'll be chaining myself up somewhere and refusing to go to work."

While I love the image of Bale chained to a radiator somewhere deep in the recesses of the Batcave, you can guarantee he wouldn’t be getting away with glib statements like that if there were a remote chance that Robin is slated to be part of the third Batman movie under Nolan’s guidance. Can’t you imagine the awkward moment where Shia LaBeouf or Zac Efron shows up on set, introduces himself as Robin, and Bale is forced to eat his words for the sake of his contract and a payday?

Apologies to Chris O’Donnell, but nobody particularly misses Robin in this Batman incarnation, and it’s good to know that the dark knight himself agrees with us.
