Continuing his recent slew of Glee Twitter tidbits, Ryan Murphy has just released an image of Darren Criss as Blaine, in a full lycra-tight superhero Robin costume. An upcoming Halloween episode, perhaps? But of course, our thoughts jumped instantly to StarKid’s Holy Musical B@man!, where Darren’s good friend Nick Lang recently portrayed the Boy Wonder – sans tights. So we ask you – who wore it better?

Nick Lang as Robin:

Darren Criss as Robin:

We know this isn’t exactly news, but look, we just had to do it.

Who's the better Robin?

    Nick Lang. Rocking the undies for sure

  • https://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

    If they’re doing a Halloween episode, I want to see me some Nightmare Before Christmas

  • Jocelyn

    Nick Lang no question

  • Gary65

    Articles like this are why I love fan sites like Hypable :D

  • Gary65

    Also, if Kurt is Batman, I am gonna attack something.

    • NatalieFisher

      Agreed… but my gut tells me Batman/Robin will be a Sam/Blaine nerd bromance.

      • RH

        Nothing would make me happier. I miss Sam’s nerdy side. (You know, before he became a stripper and all…)

      • Mirna Farah

        Chord tweeted yesterday saying that he was filming with Darren, and that pics were to come…if he is batman (please please please be true!) then its very pic worthy…

  • http://twitter.com/maireadnguyen Mairead Nguyen

    Nick would have the better costume, but my bet’s on Darren for the acting. ;)

  • http://twitter.com/sharoncasey Sharon Casey

    Nick Lang by a mile

  • Sebasraga97

    Darren All the Way!!

  • Kristen Kranz

    I have to put a vote in for Darren… he is totally rocking that! One question though… are those cat ears on his head? lol. 

    • NatalieFisher

      Yeah, that confused me… also he still has a freaking bow tie. I swear Darren must have done something to really make Glee’s costume department hate him…

      • Kristen Kranz

        Agreed. Even dressed as a superhero, there must be a bowtie involved… sigh.

        • guest

          Bowties are cool

          • Rose

            love the doctor who reference :)

        • http://twitter.com/ThoughtsofaNerd Sarah Hay

          I love that he still has the bowtie. It’s the only bit of character consistency there is.

          • Darren’sGirl

            I love it too! It’s also adorable

      • Gary65

        If you look really closely, I’m pretty sure Nick has a bowtie too.

        • NatalieFisher

          he doesn’t – his cape has a folded collar, that’s what is on his neck.

  • sarahd15

    Darren could pull off a better Robin than Nick Lang :) Nick’s costume is quite funny tho!

  • iTuneUOut

    Nick all the way. 
    The front of Darren’s didn’t even bother with the logo. :/ 

  • Hp481516

    Darren looks more attractive, but Nick looks more hilarious. I think if Darren were to do his own portrayal of Holy Musical Batman’s version of Robin, I would like Nick’s portrayal better though. 

  • thegarbar13

    I FREAKIN LOVE HOW YOU MAKE A WHOLE POST ABOUT IT! <3 Not ashamed to say the title pic is my computer's wallpaper! I can't choose… its like picking favorites over children. Btw it was great seeing you at LeakyCon! I totally just got glasses so now we match;)

  • Saskia17

    As much as I love Darren, I’m going to have to go with Nick – he was great as Robin, and the costume was hilarious. I love the fact that you wrote an article about this :P

  • Kavitha

    I appreciate this article so much! Darren’s looks more dapper and clean cut, while Nick’s has more bling. Knowing Nick’s Robin portayal in HMB…I have to pick him! (But they’re both adorable, of course. :D)

  • Pigdars

    darren’s needs less pants… Why? pants are a luxury. they decrease Robin’s crime fighting capabilites by 20%. he cant afford to loose that

  • Pigdars

    can anyone else make out in the background there’s a poster saying ‘tina’?

  • Pigdars

    what’s a robin? isnt that a type of lizard?

  • Clarinet2357

    I must say, I think that only Nick could pull off his flamboyant version of Robin.  Darren DOES rock that costume, though!

  • Ev42

    Sorry, Glee wardrobe department, but Nick really did get the more fun & practical costume – everyone knows pants decrease crime fighting capability by 20%, which is something Robin truly cannot afford. Also, wtf cat ears?

  • Brit

    Darren tributing Nick !!!!! how sweet

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=690341156 Andrew Davies-Land

    who cares, robins gay.. and not in the good way..

  • Darkknight


  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=531808242 Courtney Gibson

    To be honest I like Starkid’s costume way more… and I would think that’s saying something but maybe Glee doesn’t want it to look great. 

  • Jo

    I love Darren with all my heart and soul but I have to admit that Nick Lang nailed it

  • http://geekgirl101.tumblr.com/ GeekGirl101

    Yeah, I don’t know what Darren is wearing, but Robin does not do cat ears and bow ties. 

  • VideoKilledSeverusSnape

    Lol, none of the above. 

  • http://twitter.com/twixie09 Lauren Gizzi

    Why does Darren’s Robin have ears…?

  • rdh014

    Do you mean, who is the hotter Robin?

  • Darren’sGirl

    I think Darren would be a better Batman but he still looks adorable. The ears are cute but I don’t get it. Nick was just hilarious

  • http://twitter.com/StarkidSims Simone

    I’m gunna go with Darren tbh

  • Rumbleroar Luna

    I knew this was coming. And as much as I love Darren, Nick was amazingly awesome. So, Nick.

  • CarmelCorn24

    Love ya Darren, but Nick’s Robin in HMB was AMAZING! Plus look at those smexy legs ;)

  • Purple Orange Dinosaur

    Darren is awesome but Nick is Robin!!!! 

  • HermioneCriss

    even with darren’s sexiness, nothing- i repeat NOTHING- can beat Nick Lang’s legs. ;)

  • Meghan

    Of course the question is…who is Batman to Blaine’s Robin? :)

  • Daniella

    Do you think this is a coincidence or did Darren have a say in his character?

  • Meghan

    I say Darren all the way.

  • Serena

    Sooo, you’re just assuming Darren is Robin. How do you know for sure. As far as I know, Robin doesn’t wear cat ears. Whatever. I guess it’s just the cool thing now to be anti-Darren.

    • NatalieFisher

      ……. this comment makes literally no sense and it is laughable to me that anyone who has ever read anything I’ve written or had the least bit of exposure to me could ever put the phrase “anti-Darren” anywhere associated with me. We don’t know if he’s Robin, but he’s wearing the colour scheme exactly and it was just a fun post. No one knows what the hell the deal is with the cat ears (or the bow tie), maybe it is a Robin-like super hero Blaine is meant to have made up. Whatever. Your comment is ridic.

      • Ev42

        OH MY GOD IT’S ICLEMYER! #revelation 

        • http://twitter.com/Tygridia Tygridia

          ohhhhhh… is he singing Disney songs like a douchebag, then?

    • Ev42

      It’s not that far of a jump to make, considering the color scheme &, um, every piece of the costume. Yes, it might just be a rip-off-y costume of another random super hero, but this is just a fun post. & technically, not loving his costume (I mean, let’s face it, it looks a bit of a cop-out compared to Nick’s), says more about Glee’s & StarKid’s respective wardrobe designers/departments than the actors portraying the characters. & As Darren’s a StarKid anyway, he wins either way… :P

  • Ross

    There’s a picture on Glee Wiki of a ‘New Directions’ sign up sheet. It’s super hero themed so I think this is what it is!

    Darren is KITTEN BOY!
