Marlon Wayans as Robin
There was a time when Tim Burton planned to do a third “Batman” film. Prior to that, however, Marlon Wayans was considered for the role of Robin in “Batman Begins,” but was omitted due to the film already having too many characters. Once the third film finally rolled around, Wayans had officially signed on as the Caped Crusader’s partner. But when the director of the film changed mid-production from Tim Burton to Joel Schumacher, so did the decision to cast Wayans. He was still paid in full and still gets residual checks from the film, but was replaced by white actor Chris O’Donnell. We have to say, of all the actors to miss out on the opportunity to play a superhero, Wayans ended up with the sweetest deal.
