“Batman is a killer” in ‘Titans’, Robin actor Brenton Thwaites reveals

As we all saw by the “f*ck Batman” line in the first Titans trailer last summer, Robin isn’t the biggest fan of the Dark Knight. IGN caught up with Robin actor Brenton Thwaites at New York Comic-Con, where he revealed why Robin has such a dislike for Batman — he’s a killer.

“Batman is a killer and Robin wants to get away from that,” Thwaites told IGN. “The idea is that he doesn’t want to become a killer himself. And although these guys that he’s fighting are bad and they deserve, you know, they deserve what he’s dishing out, it seems, he believes that when you kill someone you crossed the line and you become almost as bad as them, so it’s pretty clear in the series that he was with Batman, Batman crossed the line and he was teaching me to do the same thing, and he’s trying to break away from that.”

Traditionally, Batman doesn’t kill, but he’s done plenty of it in the movies. Now in the Titans universe, it seems like he takes it to a whole ‘nother level.
