    I can honestly see Marvel casting him as the Racoon.

    I'd be okay with this, although I'd kind of like to see JGL get to play a more massively known hero.
    Eh, Comics is a pretty cool guy...

    I could see that working. I could see him as a respectable Daredevil though, or maybe a post-college Spidey.

    Am I alone in finding JGL pretty bland in TDKR?

    I think that was more a result of the part, not necessarily the actor. I didn't think the John Blake character was especially well written.

    If theres one gripe about the character it's the name reveal at the end. I couldn't help but roll my eyes at that

    No, he was pretty generic.
    I like Legato's idea, make him the racoon and have him use the voice he did in batman.
    But yknow...deeper.

    Yeah, that was groan-inducing especially for the fact that his real name literally Robin and not Dick Grayson. Because the writers apparently went to the lowest form of appealing to a stupid audience. The only way it could have been dumber is if the movie stopped and Chris Nolan himself literally said "its a comic book reference, do you get it audience?"

    That and, facial wise, he kinda resembles a racoon. Win Win.

    It was like Nolan was afraid that the fans would cry foul over an unknown character claiming the Batman mantle so he did the name reveal as some last minute saving throw. Don't even get me started with the Talia reveal.

    Well, if the character is simply named Dick Grayson from the start of the movie the audience (assuming they arent completely stupid) is going to know he's "safe" since he's a core character. Give him some unknown name and the audience could believe he's at risk, but then they'll be upset that a no-name is Batman. It's a hard spot to be in. To be honest, I think the John Blake character in general could have been written out of the movie.

    I didn't mind the Talia reveal, but I saw it coming a mile away.

    I wouldn't have mind it had it not made Bane into a muscled goon again.
