Despite Christian Bale claiming many times that he would walk away from The Dark Knight Rises if it included the character of Batman's longtime sidekick Robin, it is looking more likely that the character will appear in Christopher Nolan's third and final chapter of The Dark Knight saga.

Much fan speculation has been placed on which character the /joseph-gordon-levitt-in-talks-for-the-dark-knight-rises/recently cast Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play in The Dark Knight Rises. While some think he may be gearing up to appear as Robin, others believe that he is too old for the part.

Today, Michigan television station WILX revealed some interesting information in regards to the location scouting Christopher Nolan has been doing in the area. Here is what they had to say:

According to Eaton County and Grand Ledge officials who didn't want to be identified due to confidentiality agreements, production crews from "The Dark Knight Rises" scouted locations in Grand Ledge's Fitzgerald Park last week.

They looked at the Ledges as well as a water treatment plant located inside the park. Sources say the area is being considered as a hideout for Batman sidekick Robin.

Is this true? Is Christopher Nolan bringing Robin into his beloved franchise? Will Robin be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt? These are all questions that will be addressed in the very near future as The Dark Knight Rises goes before the camera later this year.
