The Robin costume that Jason was in when he was killed in the film was modeled after the second Robin costume that Tim Drake wore in the comics. The earlier costume he was seen wearing in one of the flashbacks was the one he wore in the comics. See more »

An exceptional production which brings out the best of the franchise.
The story line has been amazingly written (rewritten since it's a comic book adaptation) with exceptional direction. Even as an animated movie it is on par with some of the best live-action productions. The voice acting is exceptional as well. But what draws you in most is the ease and fluidity with which the story has been told. The flashbacks add a more emotional element otherwise not seen in most batman production. The audience is able to look slightly more into the mind of batman. Though what makes this movie a true masterpiece is the dramatic finale. Only complaint is that some of the points in the plot are a bit obvious which tends to render some of the scenes moot.
A must watch for any batman fan and extremely entertaining for the rest.
