He’s in. He’s out. If we’re all honest, the correct answer is “I don’t know,” but the question of whether Robin/Dick Grayson/Tim Drake will make an appearance or play a minor/major role in The Dark Knight Rises is out there thanks to speculation on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s casting.

There’s no real evidence that he’ll be turning the growling Bale Batman into a de factor foster dad, but the question is intriguing because most people hate Robin.

It’s unclear why that’s the case (the hate seems to extend far beyond his schlocky appearance in That Batman Movie We Don’t Speak Of). Robin is a resourceful, interesting character who learns how to fight and hold is own in the crime-battling game. On the other hand, he’s been portrayed as a nuisance, a diversion from the other Batman stories, and a cutesy gimmick.

The ultimate question remains: Would you want to see Robin in The Dark Knight Rises? Could Christopher Nolan pull it off?
