It’s been rumored and not rumored that Robin will be in The Dark Knight Rises.
I believe director Christopher Nolan has even gone on record stating that Robin is a no go.
However, what is this “Easter Egg” in trailer #2 for The Dark Knight Rises that was released this weekend?
The trailer saw Bane explode something at Gotham City Stadium, the scene with Hines Ward running, but check out the sign the crowd is holding.
Specifically the “R.”
So is Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character actually Robin? Or is it Nolan just having fun with the fans?!
Thanks to FB’s Dan Burgosito for the tip!
