One of comics’ greatist origins tales is that of Robin AKA Dick Grayson and it looks like Gotham is at least going to touch on the mythology…

As the World Turns actor Rob Gorrie has just wrapped filming on Gotham and it has been revealed that he was John Grayson, head of The Flying Graysons and father of Dick Grayson.

Now we’ve known for a while this was likely (here) but with Gotham now becoming a firm part of Batman’s mythology (yes, we love it here at FTN), we’re excited to see what John will have to do in Gotham.

Gorrie posted the image below on is Instagram… but we’re ready to bet we haven’t seen the last of him. Or his family.

Just wrapped! What an experience… Thank you #Gotham. Can’t wait for everyone to see this episode!

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….
