In his Dark Knight Trilogy, arguably the best Batman film series till date, Christopher Nolan avoided using the popular Batman sidekick Robin – we haven’t forgotten the homage with Robin John Blake in The Dark Knight Rises but he wasn’t a costumed incarnation of the character. But, we are more than sure that the Boy Wonder (might also be Girl Wonder) exists in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), as the Comic Con trailer of their upcoming flick Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice offers us glimpses of his suit in a Batcave sequence.
So, after nineteen long years, the Batman sidekick is set to return to the silver screen and since the last time we saw him was with those controversial ‘rubber nipples’ in Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin, the wait might seem longer than that. And it seems like everyone is super-excited about Robin’s return to the big-screen, as the web is over-flooded with so many rumors, so many speculations and fan theories circling the Robin story arc in the second installment of DCEU.
It seems like if you ask five different persons, you may end up hearing five different theories on what BVS has in store for Robin. Whether it will be Dick Grayson, or Jason Todd, or Carrie Kelley that the movie will introduce is still unclear – and we have different rumors that back the appearance of each of these versions of the Batman sidekick.
Here we are not going to come up with another new theory, but would simply try to find out the answer to this question – can we have more than one Robin in Batman V Superman? Let’s, at first, look back at each of the popular rumors circling Robin of the Zack Snyder venture. And ah…! Forgot to mention that the following content may contain possible SPOILERS for BVS – so be WARNED, people!
On the next page – a rumor about Dick Grayson version of Robin!
