It looks like Ryan Potter is only getting started in his push to play Robin on the big screen.
Following a series of tweets petitioning Ben Affleck to cast him as Tim Drake in the announced Batman solo film, the “Big Hero 6” actor has released a concept video showing off his fight moves.
Posted on Saturday, the 20-year-old actor engaging in a choreographed street-style battle against multiple attackers. In addition to swift punches and kicks, Potter displays some impressive agility, leaping through the air to finish one opponent.
The actor ends the video with a personal message to Affleck: “Hey, Ben, like Tim said, Batman needs a Robin.”
Potter, who’s Japanese-American, made further calls on Twitter, adding that minority representation and diversity should be a feature of DC Comics’ films.
The Batman movie is in pre-production, with Affleck set to direct as well as star. Plot details are unknown, but it was confirmed on Frdiay that “True Blood” alum Joe Manganiello will play the villain Deathstroke. J.K. Simmons is expected to appear as Commissioner Gordon, with Jeremy Irons reprising his “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” role as Alfred.
Affleck will next be seen as Batman in director Zack Snyder’s “Justice League,” which opens Nov. 16, 2017.
