Is This Anything?
While watching Batman Begins, I noticed a scene where a young blonde boy speaks to Batman. Batman eventually gives the young boy a piece of Bat-equipment to let him know that he's a real human being...or something.
Well, later on in the movie the child is seperated from his mom and during the riot preceding the final scene, he's dosed by Scarecrow's fear gas and keeps repeating something to the effect of "I'm not afraid. I'm not afraid." Does he ever find his mom or does he become another Gotham orphan?
Were we looking at nothing there. Was it all "throw-away?" Or as Scip pointed out to me, "Jason Todd was originally a blonde boy who had to dye his hair to become Robin."
Was it anything? What do you think?
