Dead Robin in BATMAN V SUPERMAN Confirmed To Be Jason Todd
We heard a lot of rumors leading up to the released of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that the version of Robin was Jason Todd. There's been no confirmation of that until now, and apparently Warner Bros. didn't want that information to get out.
There was a video posted on the official Facebook page of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood and in it, the tour guide clearly states that Jason Todd is the Robin that was killed by The Joker. He says in the video:
“This was one of the big things from Batman v Superman, right across this way. The Jason Todd/Robin suit. Spray painted on the front, ‘Ha-Ha. The joke’s on you Batman.’ Those of you that know the storyline, know what happened to this Robin.”
That video has since been removed from the Facebook page, which tells me this is information that the filmmakers didn't want to reveal just yet. I imagine that's because the character will play a role in the upcoming Batman solo film which has been previously rumored. As most of you already know, years after The Joker killed Jason Todd, Todd was resurrected as The Red Hood, an anti-hero who isn't shy about killing people.
I already assumed that Todd was this version of Robin and I know many of you did as well, but now that we pretty much have official confirmation, it lends some credence to the rumors that have been leaking out regarding The Batman film currently being developed by Ben Affleck.
