There are all these jokes about the homoerotic element in Batman, so I thought I would find out for myself whether there was anything to it.

Verdict: beyond all reasonable doubt. I think the most smoking-gun passage came from the sequence shortly after Batman believes he has seen Robin plunge to his death in an acid bath.
