    With Wonder Woman coming out in theaters this week, I felt it was time to take a look back at some of DC's other movies from the past few years. Specifically, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. Back before Suicide Squad and Batman v. Superman hit theaters, there was a theory kicking around that Jared Leto's Joker was secretly Batman's sidekick, Robin. But the Director of Suicide Squad, David Ayer, seemed to dismiss this saying that Jason Todd, former Robin #2 was NOT the Joker. However, the proof we cover today shows that Suicide Squad's Joker can still be Robin...just not the Robin that everyone thought.
    If you think you've heard this Batman v Superman/Suicide Squad theory before, you ain't seen NOTHING yet!

    I just wanna know how you wanna connect the dceu and the comics , THE JOKER SHOWED UP THE SAMD TIME AS BADMAN , NOT TO MENTION ROBIN WAS THERE

    None of the Robbins are the same build ,hight ECT, not to mention all the Robbins where present at the time of a death in the family a recent arch you have probably overlooked for this theory. As the joker defeats and captures all the Robbins , so in the comics it doesn't work out ,

    Thinking back to Jason Todd's death, Joker super move makes sense.

    I don’t get how dick Grayson is dead already while the Wayne’s are getting buried. and it said 1982-2000, Batman isn’t in his late 20’s in 2018. He couldn’t have been a kid after 2000. unless I’m completely missing something here and/or I’m just not realizing something, this doesn’t make sense. If u have the answer please tell me, this is eating my brain

    Batman is an asshole. I mean really?? Letting a child to run around in underwear fighting crime? Training the said child to be a child-soldier? That is really messed up.
    And I know that this comment and I are going to get roasted. So, whatever... I don't care.

    No mention of the short-lived Robin, Stephanie Brown? I know she’s not considered a canonical Robin in every comics timeline, but I think she’s unfairly overlooked. I’m sure I’m not the only one to mention her in this comment section tho.

    For whatever it’s worth I prefer the arkhamverse. So i have to disagree with Tim Drake being joker. In the Arkham games Tim is robin before and right after joker dies from the titan. But in a cinematic sense this does make some sense
