Ok…. I hate these rumors, but just that you are warned when the new “news” will be that “Robin is in The Dark Knight Rises”.
The “news” is that location scouts from The Dark Knight Rises have looked at Fitzgerald Park in Grand Ledge (Michigan), especially the water treatment plant as a hideout for (gasp) Batman’s Sidekick Robin!
So before you shriek out etc. let’s just say that this is nothing official and the sources are people who would like to stay anonymous due to confidentiality agreements.
Secondly: We already got Bane AND Selina Kyle, who already have a lot of story to cover, so it doesn’t make that much sense to include Robin.
Thirdly: Apart from the fact that it’s probably just a report for the sake of getting traffic (remember CGI Heath Ledger in Dark Knight Rises and The Penguin/Riddler news) maybe it’s also a deception on Warner Brother’s part. Maybe they’re stating to look for a certain character location to divert our attention and look for something else entirely.
Who knows… just don’t go out and tout it as a fact.
