While filming Batgirl in Glasgow, Scotland, fans spotted a gigantic mural on the movie's set. The college consists of an artistic rendition of Batman and Robin.

As recognised by @Nightwingology, the Robin depicted in the art seems to replicate Kaare Andrews' 1970s rendition of the Boy Wonder from the Robin 80th Anniversary Special. Batgirl is acknowledging the existence of the character in its universe, which begs the question: will Robin show up?

We already know the DC film will feature a number of characters including Michael Keaton's Batman, as well as J.K. Simmons' Commissioner Gordon. But, Simmons noted that Justice League and Batgirl are not connected by a universe.

Given Keaton's appearance, it seems as though Batgirl could lead on from The Flash following multiversal consequences. This in turn, could lead to the existence of Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, or whoever.
