I think it is lame. It would have been better if his name was Tim Drake or something.

It was a corny cheap way to get an emotional reaction from those in the general audience who know enough to know that Robin exists but not enough to know what his alter ego identity is. And it was wholly useless apart from that, as Nolan might as well have just kept the guy's name as John Blake and had him take over from there.

Also, I'm not a JGL disliker. I like the actor. But his character in this film was worthless, unnecessary, and two-dimensional, and the film would have been a lot better off without him.
