John Blake is Robin/ Nightwing
Lot of speculation about John Blake. Since, I have already posted the story, I might as well just state, beyond reasonable doubt that John Blake will be the next Robin/ Nightwing. Its simple. I am not going into conumdrums about the trailer.
Finally a toy-line has completely taken the cat out of the bag. John Blake does don a kinda of a superhero costume- Probably he takes over from Batman, when his back is broken or this the one, which he gets at the end.
Look at the character at the extreme right - That'S BLAKE in some kind of Night-wing costume. I don't think he will be Azrael. This just clearly indicates, he has some kind of extra role to play in this movie. He's just not an average-Joe- Cop.
I will just tell you why its such a possibility:-
1) Batman either dies or retires at the end, because Nolan wants to end it(SO STUPID) WE haven't even seen some of the best villains yet. Grrrrrr! Wud have loved to see his take on Hugo Strange. So what happens next. Its this moment at the end - Nolan will pull the rabbit out of the hat and Bruce will give his cape to Blake.
2) Whether Blake will become the next BATMAN or don his new avatar as Nightwing/ Robin - remains to be seen
Nolan will just have to deliver a cracker climax after Bane is defeated. The continuity needs to be ensured, even though the trilogy maybe complete. It just has to be Blake - Why keep a character like him? - Montoya was kept for Two- face in The Dark Knight- Gordon Hewitt is being kept for Robin.
Bale said he would never ever be Batman if Robin was there- He won't be - Blake becomes Robin at the very end or better still - The Nightwing- Its like a passing nod to him and nothing else.
MASTER STROKE - MR NOLAN - NOW THE END SEEMS MEANINGFUL!!!
