    It's overly obvious that TPTB have zero damn ideas for Tim.

    I'm willing to try anything at this point.

    I wouldn't go that far, I'd just say he's not a high priority. Hasn't been since the New-52. I'm sure we'll see him in a team setting down the line this year

    I know I stink of desperation. I'm okay with this.

    I agree he's not a high priority.

    I am not so sure his future is that rosy.

    I'm seeing the solicits for Kon in Suicide Squad thinking to myself "Tim would rescue him from Waller's control," but they won't even mention something like that I bet.

    Why? Why race bend him when the two Robins following him are Asian and Black?

    Once again outside media bulks at the idea of giving us a comic accurate Tim Drake.

    If the show makers wanted to add diversity then why not use the diverse characters already present. Why use the white kid?

    Honestly, they won't bring Duke, because he isn't so recognizable. And they don't want to use the son of Batman concept (yet), so Damian isn't an option either.

    They want a new Robin, so Tim is the option, because he has an enough recognizable name. However, they don't want a third white guy as Robin.


    PS: That said, if Damian appear, I suspect he will be a white kid, since they would want to focus on Batman son aspect.

    Damian is mixed, so I don't see why he would need to be officially white. Especially since diversity is clearly sought

    No, but they usually like that Damian is mini Bruce in appearance.

    That said, this is a live action, so maybe they don't need Damian to be so similar to Bruce in look.

    I suspect Damian will be white as well. Not just because a big part of Damian being that he is Bruce's carbon copy but also the odds of finding an Arabic/Chinese/jewish Caucasian kid actor who has the chops to handle Damian Wayne is near impossible.

    For me talent trumps racial accuracy when it comes to characters like Damian where accuracy is difficult and a lot rides on the acting chops of the actors.

    Damian is a difficult character to get right so it's more important to me that they get a young actor who has the talent to pull him off well

    I like the kid from The Umbrella Academy or the kid that plays Bruce on Gotham

    Diversity is sought but what happens when diversity isn't available?
    Or when that Diversity is already there. Tim was race bent so Damian can be white

    I'm cool with Tim being race bent if it means we get rep. The odds of finding a mixed kid with the talent to pull of Damian is low so I'll take diversity here.

    Damian's 1/4 Middle Eastern and supposed to look like Bruce at that age, so white would be fine. Talia's mother was white.

    I'm fine with a mixed race Tim Drake. He could easily be a kid from a wealthy Asian American family. It could even add to his backstory and character.

    Talia is half-Chinese half Middle Eastern. As per her creator Dennis O'Neil in Birth of the Demon.

    Damian would be white passing but would be only half white because of his father.
