TDKR: Does Toy Merchandise Reveal That John Blake Is Actually Azrael?

TDKR: Does Toy Merchandise Reveal That John Blake Is Actually Azrael?

Is The Dark Knight Rises' John Blake actually Azrael? This "Heroclix" bio may yield some interesting revelations for a character many assumed to be Dick Grayson.



Take this as complete rumor but this morning I got a very interesting email submission from a guy named Cory91. He claims that his friend works for "Wizkids" the makers of "HeroClix" and that while they are currently working on "Batman Begins", "Dark Knight" and "Dark Knight Rises" set of the figures, they are given in depth descriptions of each character and that there was one character with info we have not yet heard. DC provided them with a very interesting bio for the John Blake figure that had to be hidden from the public at the recent press unavailing and conventions:
"A hard-nosed young Gotham beat cop who is assigned to a special task unit to take down the vigilante known as "The Batman" becomes an unlikely ally to the Dark Knight. When the mercenary known as "Bane" breaks the prisoners out of Blackgate Prison, the city becomes overrun and Blake takes the codename of "Azrael" to help Batman stop Bane."

Now Cory91 did not provide ANY proof just the above, so again take this with a grain of salt. The only reason I thought it was interesting or plausible is it loosely aligns with the leaked pictures and videos we've seen of Blake and Bruce Wayne talking together and driving somewhere in a car.



Wev'e also seen the leaked video of Blake and some gasoline, helping Batman by maybe blowing up one of Bane's tumblers. So while Blake may not dawn a costume or turn out to be Robin, maybe a nice code name of "Azrael" would fit?





I personally do not believe this, but thought it was an interesting enough rumor to share.
