Heroes star wants to be Batman’s sidekick

Milo VentimigliaIt looks like having the coolest super powers on Heroes isn’t quite enough for Milo Ventimiglia. The 31-year-old actor told Showbizspy.com that he wants to play Robin if the character were ever featured again in a Batman movie. “I always thought I would make a great Robin,” he explains. Ventimiglia, who is dating his 19-year-old co-star Hayden Panettiere, is ready to don Boy Wonder’s green tights and help save the day. “I would love to be Christian Bale’s sidekick in Batman. Even when I was younger I never wanted to be Batman,” he reveals. “I have always wanted to be Robin. To this day I still think that would be pretty cool.” As for now, starring on a hit TV show will have to do. Heroes returns to primetime September 22.

    Bale already said he doesn’t want Robin, so don’t hold your breath Milo

    By golly I think it would work cause his face doesn’t look like it would steal too much spotlight from Bale’s face! He looks a little vulnerable, not stronger than Batman. And it’s also strange that he never wanted to be Batman (who the heck doesn’t want to be Batman?)! Looks to me like he’s destined to be Robin!

    You listening Nolan? I think he would fit the role perfectly!

    I think he would be perfect for the role! But Christian Bale said that the Dark Knight works alone…

    Okay, so I get the story. This guy wants to be Robin to Bale’s Batman. (Never gonna happen).

    Why does the article mention who he’s dating?

    I think he would be a perfect choice for Robin. I’ve always liked this actor, it would be really interesting to see him take on some movie roles.
