Ryan Potter’s Robin Fight Scene Concept Video Feels Right out of the Batman Movie We Deserve

Big Hero 6‘s Ryan Potter has a message for Ben Affleck on his Batman solo movie: Batman needs a robin—this Robin. Potter went the extra mile in choreographing and filming a fight scene meant for Tim Drake to make the case for casting him in the role in the upcoming film.

The video has plenty of energy and martial arts action, and it was all choreographed and filmed in 3.5 hours, according to the YouTube description. (It also manages to show action without slow motion!) Unfortunately, we still don’t know whether Affleck’s Batman movie will even feature the character, let alone really anything else about it, but Potter, who’s Japanese American, took to Twitter to urge the inclusion of some diversity by bringing him on board.

I’m all for that, as well as adding something new to the Bat-film formula after most movies have either ignored Robin, downplayed his role, or have just not been very good. It’d be nice to see the character—and other members of the Batman Family, for that matter—get a well-deserved good film version, although what’s come out of the current DC movie universe so far doesn’t instill me with confidence that we’d get that.

But we can hope! At least the fight scenes would be better than the ones I’ve been preparing for my campaign to snag the role of Robin:
