According to Roberts, he and his team crafted the whole story with Booker. Soon afterward, “Booker came to the studio for one of the animating days and also made a live-action cameo with his dad. After 1,200 individual photos and 3 weeks of work, we wrapped the stop-motion animation part of the production.

Because he is good with tech (Batarangs). He is trained as a ninja. His costume and personality are scary but he is good.” Honestly, it’s hard to argue with any of that. Batman kind of is the best.
