It just seems a little far fetched for Nolan to put Robin in his Bat films.
Spidey91 - 12/20/2011, 7:15 AM
"...other thought it had more literal implications such as The Boy Wonder actually making an appearance in the film"
CraptainAmerica - 12/20/2011, 7:23 AM
Makes sense! Unlike Grif's existence

*Cue the comments stating that Hines Ward's name is referencing Burt Ward*

@Grif -- What's got your panties up in such a tight wad about this movie? Hot damn son....chill out...
JackBauer - 12/20/2011, 7:32 AM
Actually, this is the hint that Robin is in the movie:

Merry Christmas griffy :)

Anytime someone says they have a "reliable source" or they "heard from someone close to production" that they have a rumor or a spoiler, I immediately come to read the comments. All because nobody has been right for the past year on any of that. The only ones who were correct we're any actual extras on set and people who had a peek at the prologue or trailers. And when actual info leaked, WB had it removed fast.

The banner next to it says... "Demolish The Monuments"
A cheeky plot reference?
MrReese - 12/20/2011, 7:43 AM
@Gusto LMAO!!

MarkCassidy - 12/20/2011, 7:50 AM
I thought this might be the case, but regardless Nolan chose to shoot it and put it in the movie so he mist have appreciated it.
Ranger14 - 12/20/2011, 7:53 AM
tea@ lol I should have figured you would comment. :-P Now you got Mareado all worked up.

Mareado@ I was referring to other articles where many are claiming the name on the football player's uniform is a reference to Burt Ward. I have done my best to educate them, as you just did, but it seems that some just don't get it. ;-)

BRAVO to that guy then !
StarksNStripes - 12/20/2011, 7:55 AM
It was me.
Everyone around me thought it was funny and no one on the crew said anything about it to me when I came in that day.
gloomypatrick - 12/20/2011, 7:55 AM

golden123 - 12/20/2011, 7:56 AM
It wasn't an accident that it got such a good shot in the film.
vtopa - 12/20/2011, 7:58 AM
Clever fan. Love it. Love it even more that Nolan had the sense of humor to leave it in.
ArrowToTheKnee - 12/20/2011, 7:58 AM
@grif - Get laid dude.
MarkJulian - 12/20/2011, 7:59 AM
Yes, a fan made it and everyone on the production of a movie that will likely bring close to a billion dollars for WB just let that slip through the cracks....
HelaGood - 12/20/2011, 8:00 AM
how could they NOT have known? seriously...
darkknightmare2012 - 12/20/2011, 8:01 AM
robin would not work in nolan s movies .. a nightwing would though...

Maybe it is a Robin refrence. Robins family was killed in the comic. Maybe in this version Robin is a football player and and all the Rouges getting killed when the field blows represents his family. That plus the Ward Jersey may be the hint.
Kamdan - 12/20/2011, 8:13 AM
The football player in the trailer was Hines Ward of the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's not a reference to Burt Ward.
Ranger14 - 12/20/2011, 8:14 AM
Seriously...this is the conclusion to the Nolan franchise and trilogy. Why would they introduce Robin in the conclusion? It's a conclusion not a beginning. Start-over time again.
santoanderson - 12/20/2011, 8:15 AM
Football player w/ Ward on the back of his jersey is real football player "Hines Ward". He plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers (whose stadium was used to shoot the movie.)

I doubt they would cast a 35-year old half Korean, half African-American guy to play Robin.
MrReese - 12/20/2011, 8:15 AM
Well welcome back Intruder :D
blvdnoise - 12/20/2011, 8:16 AM
Well yeah..
superotherside - 12/20/2011, 8:16 AM
Couldn't care less if it was made by Nolan & Co. or not but it is cool it's in there. :)
DudeGuy - 12/20/2011, 8:17 AM
yeah we all figured this out for ourselves. thanks for the article though.
who cares if it was intended or not its still cool
PapaEmeritus - 12/20/2011, 8:19 AM
I have to agree with Intruder, this time!
Luigi - 12/20/2011, 8:22 AM
Out of all of the shots that they recorded for the scene, Nolan decided to keep this one in. Thus, ROBIN IS IN THE FILM!!!
PaulRom - 12/20/2011, 8:26 AM
@Intruder Gotta agree for the most part.
Oh, and welcome back. ;)
Minghagz - 12/20/2011, 8:31 AM
Seriously this shit is getting old. Mentioning it once and seeing it is cool but to dwell on it and speculate is just [frick]ing stupid.
Garmanbozia - 12/20/2011, 8:48 AM
The extra did not bring in that sign. This was intentional, a Nolan Easter Egg. I mean, if the extra brought in that sign, Nolan and company would have digitally edited the Robin "R" out, with a 250 million dollar budget...

This is as close as fanboys & fangirls get in having a Robin in a Nolan Batman movie.
Mastyrwerk - 12/20/2011, 8:52 AM
"So this is no more a 'clue' that Robin will be in the film than the presence of the Batman logo on a door during Following was a 'clue' that Nolan would one day make a Batman movie."

But Nolan DID make a Batman movie. So, this is either a terrible analogy, or Robin IS in TDKR, it's just that 'R' wasn't a clue by the Director.

Joker said it best when he killed Jason Todd.
TheMalcontent - 12/20/2011, 9:04 AM
I would agree with Grif. I haven't seen anything good yet about this movie.

I love Nolan and just about everyone of his movies but something is very off about this.

I have the same feeling about the Avengers. I haven't like any of the trailers for ether of this movies.But that just my opinion. I have high standards.
smerf1 - 12/20/2011, 9:05 AM

You also need to get laid with a name like that.
