Zack Snyder Reveals Which Robin DCEU Joker Killed and No, it’s Not Jason Todd

Zack Snyder has revealed which Robin was killed by the Joker in the DCEU and surprisingly it’s not Jason Todd.

In Batman vs. Superman, we see a Robin costume which has been defaced by the Joker and it’s revealed that the Dark Knight’s sidekick was killed by the Clown Prince of Crime. While many – myself included – assumed Jason Todd was the Robin to bite the dust, Snyder himself revealed that it was actually Dick Grayson who was murdered.

Answering fan questions on Vero, Snyder confirmed it was Dick Grayson when a fan asked whether he meant to say Jason Todd was killed by the Joker, with Snyder simply replying: “no Dick Grayson”.

Snyder also revealed he planned to hint at Grayson’s death in the upcoming Justice League movie.

While it’s interesting that Snyder went with killing Dick Grayson off instead of Jason Todd and it was certainly a move no one expected, it’s disappointing that we won’t see Grayson’s Nightwing in the future.

  1. That is surprising. With the staff in hand, I think we all assumed it was Jason Todd.

    Well, we could still see another Nightwing. Damian stole the identity in Injustice after all. There’s also the possibility of this Synderverse son of Bruce and Diana’s.
