Well, that didn’t take long. It looks like DC Entertainment is prepared to capitalize on the success of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises film and the buzz surrounding Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Detective Robin John Blake.
The character appeared to be an amalgam of all of Batman’s Robins: Dick Grayson’s courage and skill (Nightwing), Jason Todd’s passion (Red Hood), Tim Drake’s detective skills (Red Robin), and Damian Wayne’s impulsiveness (Robin).
DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio has teased on his facebook page that the character will pop up in DC Comics on a “mission“.
Will it be a digital comic first continuatuon of The Dark Knight Rises continuity a la Smallville Season 11? Followed by print version?
Or will the character make his debut in the DC Comics Relaunch’s New 52? Stay tuned.
No official word yet on a sequel to The Dark Knight Rises or a reboot of the movie franchise.
