so many hints point to robin being in TDKR.
1st the robin R in the trailer. i dont believe this was a fan extra home made sign. that story makes no sense to anyone familiar with film making. the R is featured prominently in a shot in the trailer, so nolan and the studio put it in there on purpose.
2nd the guy just looks like robin.
3rd batman legacy. robin is a huge part of the batman story, this is nolans last chance to bring this iconic character into his batman world. nolan has not wasted any major roles on any new non comic characters and i dont see him doing that here.
i dont think we will see him in a robin suit though. my theory is that he will play the role of robin/nightwing/azzreal,
my prediction is that: john blake will show up at the masquerade ball dressed as robin hood ! and we will get to see blake (probably actually named grayson) in a classy robin hood masquerade ball costume fighting thugs. BAM instant robin cameo scene.
