Fan theories can run amuck. Sometimes they seem so far out there, while other times they make sense and turn out to be true. We’ll leave this one for you to decide.
The latest rumor circulating the Internet suggest that, in the Batman v Superman universe, Robin is actually the Joker. Crazy? Maybe. Using shots from the BvS trailer and the publicly released Suicide Squad photo of Jared Leto’s Joker, theorists are speculating that there’s evidence of the switch. Puncture wounds from Jason Todd’s Robin suit appear to match up perfectly with the scars on the Joker’s shoulders. Check out the photo below:
The idea seems ludicrous that Batman’s sidekick could turn into his biggest enemy, but that’s the idea for this theory. In the trailer it’s assumed that Jason Todd/Robin has died, though the suggestion here is that he transforms into the Joker. Now, Batman has been battling the Joker for a long time, so the idea is that the original Joker has been killed, and Jason Todd carries the torch as a new version of the Clown Prince. In a cartoon version of Batman, the Joker captures Tim Drake (Robin), and brainwashes him to be the next Joker. Maybe Zack Snyder is going in this direction, maybe not, but it’s certainly something to think about.
