Up until now, it’s been widely assumed that the Robin murdered by The Joker before the events of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was Jason Todd, just like in the comic books. However, there have been a lot of very interesting rumours (The Batman being an adaptation of “Under the Hood”) and crazy theories (Dick Grayson becoming the second Joker a la The Dark Knight Strikes Back) about Robin’s role in this world that have led to a lot of confusion.
Now we have a new report that may just clear things up. According to Latino-Review, the Robin whose costume is on display in the Batcave is indeed Jason’s, while Dick Grayson – the first youngster to hold that mantle as Batman’s sidekick – is going to be getting a mention in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice despite not making a physical appearance.

This isn’t really anything radically different to what we’ve heard before, but it’s nice to know that Zack Snyder is following the comic books. This also adds some weight to reports that Ben Affleck’s Batman movie really will be an adaptation of the “Under the Hood” storyline, which saw Jason return to Gotham City as the vigilante Red Hood in order to get revenge on both his mentor and the Clown Prince of Crime.
