The Umbrella Academy star Aidan Gallagher suits up as Robin for Matt Reeves’ The Batman in stunning new artwork.
With rumors that The Batman will feature Robin opposite the titular hero, fans have been wondering for some time who will step into the role, and which Robin director Matt Reeves will pick for his highly-anticipated movie. The right choice would be Dick Grayson, since the film could show his progression from Robin up to Nightwing. Earlier this year, The Umbrella Academy made its debut on Netflix and popular digital artist BossLogic revealed an awesome piece of fan art that imagines its breakout star Aidan Gallagher as Robin.
Aidan Gallagher seems to love the artwork of him as Robin and with the sword in the image it’s clear that he’s the Damian Wayne version of the DC Comics sidekick here. After Aidan Gallagher’s The Umbrella Academy was met with critical success, many fans wanted him for the role of Robin. Since The Umbrella Academy saw Aidan Gallagher wear a domino mask with white lenses, it’s obvious that he could do Robin justice in The Batman, at least looks-wise. You can see The Umbrella Academy star Aidan Gallagher as Robin for The Batman in the artwork below.

We know that The Batman will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that reportedly includes Catwoman, The Penguin and The Riddler. Director Matt Reeves has also confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will make use of Batman’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC Comics movies. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new movie trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman is set to star Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, with Jeffrey Wright in negotiations to play Commisioner James “Jim” Gordon, and Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle / Catwoman. Paul Dano recently joined the cast of the movie as The Riddler.
The Batman arrives in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on The Umbrella Academy, Aidan Gallagher, Robin and the next Batman movie!
