Based on early plans, Zack Snyder’s Justice League could reveal more about Robin’s death in the DC Extended Universe.
In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, audiences learned that in the DCEU, Dick Grayson’s Robin was murdered after seeing his suit with Joker graffiti in the Batcave and after a later explanation by Zack Snyder.
We haven’t heard anything more about the incident since but fans of course speculated that it was the Joker that killed Dick. Well, it turns out Snyder planned to tease a little more about the incident in his version of Justice League.
He mentioned this to a fan on Vero (via Heroic Hollywood) who asked: “did you have plans to dive deeper into the background of Dick’s death in your future movies? Maybe JL?”
Snyder responded, “a hint in JL.” This could perhaps mean that this hint will make its way into the Snyder Cut that is coming to HBO Max. While not a guarantee, Robin fans will be looking out with eagle eyes for any more info on the character’s demise.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder and features Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf and Ray Porter as Darkseid.
