#RyanPotterForTimDrake Ryan Potter, probably best known for voicing Hiro in Disney’s Big Hero 6, has demonstrated an immense interest in portraying the third Robin, Tim Drake, in Ben Affleck’s upcoming Batman solo film. So immense, I’d have to admit it’s greater than my own desire. And for what he’s done, I’d concede the Boy Wonder mantle to him.

He has recently uploaded a video on YouTube demonstrating his martial arts skills and acrobatic abilities akin to what one would expect from the silver screen’s first Tim Drake portrayal.

“Hey Ben, like Tim said, Batman needs a Robin.”

You know what the best part of having Ryan Potter as Tim Drake would be? Asian-American representation in a mainstream movie. The hero I needed when I was a 6-year-old trying to be Robin on the playground on Northcutt Elementary.
