Cool image shows what Nightwing could look like in the Nolan movie-verse….

If ,like me, you thought the character of John Blake in the Dark Knight Rises was going to be Nightwing despite his name being Robin then wait no more.
A fan has released his very own mock up version of Blake in costume based on the Nolan styled costume designs of the Bat costume, although the original source of the image is unknown.
Personally I think it’s great and now I want a fourth Batman. Do you hear us Christopher?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….

    Christopher Nolan did say he wasn’t interested in returning for another BATMAN movie, could have been an intentional play on words. I like the image above, but they would have to do something more to make it less easy to make out that it was Blake wearing a pair of swimming goggles. Would have to come up with some kind of skull cap/goggles combination.

    The whole point of retiring Wayne but having Blake seemingly take up the mantle is to reinforce the Batman Begins mantra of creating a legend of sorts whereby the man can die but the Batman never will. Therefore I would be happy for Blake to be Batman in the ongoing Nolanverse rather than reboot him as Nightwing
