SUICIDE SQUAD Easter Egg Seemingly Reveals That It Wasn't The Joker That Killed Robin At All

I completely missed this myself, but eagle-eyed fans have spotted a very interesting easter egg in Suicide Squad pertaining to the real identity of Jason Todd/Robin's murderer. Plot SPOILERS ahead...


At the beginning of Suicide Squad, each of the main characters are introduced via some stylish, comic book-like promos that flash their criminal history on the screen for a brief moment. I didn't catch this, but according to The Wrap, Harley Quinn's intro reveals that she was actually the one responsible for the death of Batman's sidekick, Jason Todd.

Thanks to that scene in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice that shows Bruce Wayne walking past a statue of Robin that's been defaced with graffiti, we all assumed that The Joker must have killed him just as he did in the Death in the Family comic arc - but, it looks like Mr. J had his own sidekick do the deed.

This may never be addressed again, but one would assume that if we do get a solo Batman movie that pits The Dark Knight against The Joker, Robin's death will at the very least get a mention.

What do you guys think of this new revelation? Suicide Squad is out now, and you can check out my review HERE.


UPDATE: It seems The Wrap's report was misleading, as the leaked image below confirms that JHarley was simly an accomplice in Robin's murder, suggesting that The Joker may still have committed the act.
