We Kinda Saw This Coming
If you’ve seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice you may have noticed the memorialized Robin suit in the Batcave. With the words “Ha Ha Ha Jokes on you Batman” spray painted across the chest. Thanks to a video posted on Batman-News, fan speculation has been confirmed as that was the suit of Jason Todd. The Robin character that was tortured and killed by The Joker. Reveal at the 1:33 mark below.
Jason Todd would go on to be resurrected in the Lazarus Pit by Talia al Ghul and become the anti-hero known as The Red Hood. Those who knew this story arc from the comics speculated that it was Todd’s suit featured in the movie. Now Warner Bros. has made it official. From here, it’s safe to say this will be version or Robin we’ll see in the standalone Batman flick starring Ben Affleck.
Whether or not we’ll see the full transformation from Bruce Wayne’s ward and sidekick, to homicidal vigilante is still up in the air, but this news gives us a firm understanding of the timeline/universe that we’re in.
Now, to speculate on who”ll play the doomed Boy Wonder. Any ideas?
