Sigh. I’m kind of sad that Zack Snyder shut down the rumor about the Joker being Robin in Batman v Superman, but unfortunately, it’s true. Snyder spoke to Yahoo and was asked about the fan theory that has spawned a thousand memes. He responded:
“It’s funny because every now and then someone will touch on something that’s kind of true, but the next thing they say makes me realize that they took a wild guess. They’ll say something and I’ll say “Oh snap, they must have seen the script.” And then they’ll say, “And this happens!” And then I’ll go, They have no idea what they’re talking about. It’s fun for everyone to speculate and take shots and think of things and try to sell it. There’s an industry in selling your guess. [People think], “I’m going to make a fake script and look like I read the real one.” What length are you willing to go There’s a rumor that my son is [playing] Robin. It’s not true. Now there are all these images of him that people have made where he’s dressed like Robin. It’s fun to hear and see them.”
Ah well. Anyone want to weigh in here? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theaters on March 25, 2016.
