...is John Blake? He could keep the same basic backstory (GCPD cop who admires Batman) and they would change up the formula a bit by having an already-adult Robin. It also wouldn't be the first time a character from another Batman media form was later implemented into the comics (i.e. Harley Quinn).

I loved Joseph Gordon Levitt in the movie and his character but I just don't think it would be a good idea.

Most of the time I hate it when comics incorporate movie aspects. This would be one of those times. Just MY opinion though.

Does adult Robin even works ? Why not even be something diferente ? Plus how many Robins must exist?

I'm okay eith movies/cartoons adding to comics, but don't really like John Blake as robin.

No because I always viewed John Blake as Nolan's attempt at an amalgam of the robins (at least Dick Grayson and Tim Drake) so I don't think he would work well in the comics. Not to mention that Harley Quinn was put in because she was well received, though most people agree that JGL was good in the role, his inclusion in the Dark Knight trilogy was a polarizing one.

Never really been a fan of Robin, but I guess it would be okay, Levitt is pretty cool.

Thank god this would never happen, the dude couldn't even take on two dudes solo but he was suppose to become Batman, I guess all that training Bruce did around the world is pointless bc any dude in a mask can be Batman at any moment.

@havoc1201: THANK YOU. The moment DKR finished, I was left thinking Bruce left that guy to die very quickly in Gotham. He had no training whatsoever and it took Bruce years to accumulate the skills he had and his own personal will.

There's Nightwing, Red Hood, and Red Robin. Bruce doesn't need another little pisher sidekick.

...though it would be funny to see Carrie Kelly again as Robin. It was nice seeing her again in Brave and the Bold

I would like to see John Blake as a character in the GCPD but not as a Robin

Actually you know what, all this talk the Nightwing series ending...what if Dick went back to being Robin?

@thecheesestabber: A thought I just had: he could play a similar role he did in the movie, acting as kind of a sidekick but not being a direct sidekick.

@azrael_online: I can't really see him going back to Robin after being Nightwing for so long, but it'd be cool.

I think we all know Damien is going to be back...most likely as one of the clone versions. Or who knows, maybe they already dumped his corpse in a lazerous put. In all honesty, screw Damien, Tim was an awesome Robin.

No way. Have him be a cop, but not as an adult Robin.

I came up with a scenario that could happen. When Batman finally does get back Damian's body and puts it in the Lazarus Pit, Damian emerges as being evil and helping Ra's al Ghul. Batman is doomed, but Carrie Kelly in the Robin costume saves the day and Carrie becomes the new Robin. So many people would be pissed off XD

In the long run, Damian will probably return in some way, shape, or form (see Jason Todd). But I am still of the opinion that he shouldn't have been killed off in the first place.
