Nolan, just like all the Batman DC Comics writers post-Kane have had the right to create a new Robin in whatever light they see fit. John Blake is just as much Robin in characteristics as the Robins on the printed page. Robin isn't just his christian name, its the mantle he carries in The Dark Knight Rises
