John Blake has been one of TDKR’s mystery characters however, what we know about him is that he is a police officer of Gotham City Police Department (GCPD). Now, some believe that he is just a regular cop in the movie and others think that he could be Azrael who will take up the mantle of being Batman. In any case, there have been very few updates about who he is and what his role will be in movie until now. Below is John Blake’s Performance Review by GCPD. What you will find is that Blake is pretty much a well rounded cop scoring high in his physical performance areas and his approach to solving things. However, he scores mediocre when it comes to team work and communication. Hmmm…the man is a loner. This could be vigilante hints, this could be Azrael…hmmm.

Well, I know that some of you will agree and others will debate about how Blake is just a plain ole cop character. What do you think after reading the review? Comment below or on DKN Facebook.

    I doubt Bane will break Batman back and therefore there is no need for am Azreal to take Batman’s place. I think he is regular cop that helps when Gordon is injures.

    Don’t put him in the Azrael box. The evidence of him donning the cowl seems much more like a Robin, Nightwing, or Batman Beyond type character, AND there is also every reason to believe that he goes untitled (like Nolan said Catwoman would be) or that he is referred as Batman as it is very possible that one of his primary objectives in donning the cowl is to keep the symbol of hope alive.

    Finally, the “5” on his physical fitness level is very important because the only real argument I have seen (besides preference, not fitting in the story etc.)(Tell me if there are others) about why JGL would not be Batman is that he is too boyish and weak to be Batman, but this score seems to put that to rest.

      I do believe that he will go untitled and will be called Azrael b/c the name means “Avenging Angel” so…thoughts on that?
