This question already has an answer here:
I've come across this notion on a number of times and I simply do not understand the reason behind it. It could perhaps be because I'm not familiar with the original Batman movies that came around in the 80's or 90's.
I've only watched 3 Batman movies so far:
- Batman Begins
- The Dark Knight
- The Dark Knight Rises
I didn't see a reason in these movies which would make people not wanting to be Robin. Could someone shed some light on this?
What I meant was that people seem to want to avoid themselves being labelled as Robin. Just like "Nobody wants to be called Beiber". I didn't understand why this is so or am I completely wrong in assuming that Robin as a character is hated upon.
Off the top of my head, I remember a scene from the movie Kick Ass 2 when Dave proposes a partnership to Mindy by saying something along the lines,
You know, I could be your sidekick, like Batman and Robin and Mindy replies with
Nobody wants to be Robin
There is another scene from a movie I don't seem to recollect, but in that scene too one person says
Let's team up like Batman and Robin and the other guy says
Does that make sense?
