Default Re: Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake VI

I think because having it at the end was Nolan's way of having his cake and eating it too. Having us think of him as "John Blake" throughout the movie gave them license to create their own original character without distracting fans with how much of a departure from the traditional Robin it is.

This way, the Robin namedrop is just more of a wink to the fact that Blake had been assisting Batman throughout the film.
