Totally disappointed by nerd sites that missed the obvious jokes from Nolan in the new The Dark Knight Rises trailer.

Namely, the “R” for the Gotham Rogues is the same stylized R used for the Robin outfit made canon by the Tim Drake-era Robin and later his shift into Red Robin.

And the touchdown-scoring player’s name is Ward, which is the last name of actor Burt Ward from the 1966 Batman TV Series.

Ahem. Glaven. 

pretty interesting stuff.

    Speak more nerd to me. Though I wonder if that is Hines Ward the football player.

    Also remember that Joseph Gordan Levitt’s character, John Blake is a cop. Dick Grayson was a cop in Bloodhaven....

    Misdirection. Just like Mr. Reese in The Dark Knight being a pale man with short, red hair. And yet…no Riddler…
