"Harper wasn't designed with the purpose to be Robin," said Snyder during DC's All Access panel. "She was designed to give a different lens on Gotham. Because I felt like I wanted to create a young woman as the main character for those story lines, that's where she came from. Without directly addressing who she's going to become, she's a big part of my personal mythology for Batman."
Some fans, of course, are excited to see her come in as Robin while still others are expecting her to take a more Stephanie Brown-style approach to heroism, existing on the outer fringes of the Batman family.
