Rumor: Is Jason Todd Referenced in Batman V Superman?


Batman: A Death in the Family

Current comic readers know Jason Todd as a former Robin who was brought back to life and is now the Red Hood. Longtime Batman fans remember him as the little jerk Robin that people called a 900-number just to kill as part of the Batman: A Death in the Family storyline. Could the death of Robin be referenced in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice?

Badass Digest has new rumors about how both Batman and Wonder Woman are portrayed in the movie, and has this to say about Batman:

My sources indicate that when BvS opens Batman has existed for close to thirty years, which would place Wayne in his 50s (which is why I expected more grey in Affleck’s hair). In this version Batman is still an urban legend, a creature of the night, and no one has ever taken his picture. But he’s had plenty of adventures, and the Batcave includes a memorial centered around a tattered Robin costume.

This would fit in with rumors that Nightwing exists in this universe, but he and Bruce had some kind of falling out and haven’t spoken to each other in years…
