TV’s Robin, Burt Ward, Comments on Current Robin Events

Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

It’s a terrible choice to kill off Robin. Why bite the hand that feeds you? … Robin should only die in people’s imaginations! Or in a state of primal ecstasy!Burt Ward.

Well, I can certainly understand Ward’s distress over the fate of a fictional character that he’s close to, even more when he’s responsible for embodying one of the most iconic versions of that character. Although it’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time this has happened, nor is the current Robin even the same character as the one he played in the television show –

Wait, did he say in a state of primal ecstasy?
