After we first noticed that desecrated Robin swimsuit in Batman V Superman, we assumed we’d finally get the backstory about what occurred to the Darkish Knight’s protégé in future DCEU motion pictures. Because it occurs, although, the franchise has gone in a distinct course and we by no means bought the complete story. We’ve needed to depend on revelations from the filmmakers, then, to assist us piece collectively what occurred.
Now, due to the film’s costume designer, we’ve lastly discovered precisely how Robin died. Douglas J. Stewart, AKA @AgentBrown1, defined the reality on Instagram. He shared a close-up picture of one in all Robin’s gauntlets, blackened and peeling, and revealed “a little bit of element” about it in his caption. It seems Jared Leto’s Joker “brutally murdered” the Boy Surprise after which, only for laughs, set him alight.
Right here’s Stewart’s full caption:
“A little bit of element on Robin’s gauntlet. He was brutally murdered after which set ablaze by the Joker. The story needed to be advised within the salvaged costume on show contained in the Batcave. Getting older and specialty distressing wants to inform these unscripted tales that assist the primary framework of the movie. Right here we needed to create a Robin Swimsuit in a matter of days.

Initially, we assumed that Zack Snyder has merely lifted Robin’s demise from the comics, the place Jason Todd is overwhelmed to demise by the Joker in “A Demise within the Household” arc. We’ve since found, although, that the useless Robin is Dick Grayson. And now we’ve been advised that not solely was Grayson brutally overwhelmed like Todd was within the comics, however then his physique was burned. Yup, that appears like one thing suitably grimdark that Snyder would do.
The fascinating is there’s an opportunity we may get to see this tragic occasion play out, in spite of everything. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is ready to be the lacking chapter within the director’s DC saga that the 2017 team-up flick did not be, so he’s anticipated to additional discover ongoing plot-threads like the approaching of Darkseid and the Knightmare timeline. Keep in mind, Leto can be on board for reshoots and we’ve lately heard that one in all his scenes is a flashback to Robin’s demise.
