Scott Snyder recently sat down with MTV Geek to talk about the rumor that Harper Row will be the next Robin following the death of Damian. When asked bluntly by the interviewer if she will be the next Robin, Snyder says that he's not going to give the answer away:
"I'm not going to give away what happens…whether she would BE Robin or not."
Snyder then goes on to say that Harper is a character in her own right and that she was never designed to be a Robin:
"I feel badly that everybody is assuming that just because she's there right afterwards, we were trying to position her as the new Robin. But I can tell you honestly, everybody reading this…she's not designed to be Robin. What the creation of Harper Row was really about was creating a lens for me personally that I could relate to in Gotham, that would be like, a kid, or somebody struggling, as a young person, you're trying to make ends meet, you're in this place that's really tough, nobody believes in you and you have this incredible superhero in town that's doing these things that inspire you."
Batman #18 is in stores now.
