You probably recognize Tanner from the Netflix series Cobra Kai, who plays Robby Keene, son of Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and bad boy who has been dealt a rough hand in life.
He also just recently starred in the Netflix remake of She’s All That, He’s All That which co-starred TikTok star, Addison Rae. In the film, Rae plays Padgett Sawyer, a young TikTok star (shocker) who agrees on a bet to make the unsociable Cameron Kweller (played by Buchanan) into prom king.
However, Buchanan has been making some news of late for his aspirations to play the bisexual Boy Wonder Robin aka Tim Drake in a live-action Batman movie.
“If I have the opportunity to represent something like that, that’s incredible,” he said. “If they’re willing to write it, then you know what? Of course, I’m going to play it.”
This isn’t the first time that Buchanan has expressed an interest in playing the popular DC character.
In an interview with Cinemablend, he opened up about his “specific” plan if he were cast in the role.
“I really want to play Robin to Robert Pattinson’s Batman. I’m very specific about what I want to do with that and then maybe go on to play Nightwing,” he revealed.
“I’ll go down a deep hole if I keep talking about superheroes, so I’ll leave it at that.”
Buchanan’s comments come nearly a month after the popular hero came out in the latest issue of Batman: Urban Legends #6 – which was written by Meghan Fitzmartin, illustrated by Belén Ortega and supported by colorist Alejandro Sánchez.
