    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!

    Tim Drake is the most forgettable Robin. Everybody knows Dick Grayson- he was the first and he was in the LEGO Batman movie. Jason Todd was the second and has the most memorable story in Under the Red Hood. Damien Wayne is in Injustice which is a big property for DC and is also Batman’s son. Tim Drake didn’t really do anything memorable to my knowledge
    Edit) Dick Grayson is also in the Teen Titans

    The Jared Leto Joker has to be Dick Grayson. I bet Harley Quinn actually wrote the spray paint on the Robin suit to confuse Batman that a previous Joker did it, Bruce held a fake funeral for Dick Grayson as not to implicate himself being Batman, and Harley subjected Dick Grayson to electroshock therapy so he didn't remember his time as Robin. Also, I bet Batfleck kills because his first kill was on the original Joker, giving Harley Quinn the motive to brainwash Robin and create a new Joker in her image.

    Mattpatt! Love when you talk about comics. Dont worry man, you got this. I've been collecting comics for a few years, and I watch a lot of comic streams like ComicStorian and ComicDrake. And I'm STILL lost about all the different batmen, jokers, Robin's. There are too damn many. Still a good video! And also, still hoping to see ComicTheory pop up on USclip one day!

    Also theres spiolers dor batman forever 1995sorry .Sorry for being a party pooper but at 10:28 he says "Richard Grayson" that dick Graysons brother so there's still a chance that dick is the joker to get revenge on batman because in the 1995 movie batman forever dick loses his parents when batman wasn't able to save them in time and batman then takes dick under his wing during it dick wants to kill every villain in the city including the joker but like matpat says thats just a theory

    What if joker is one of lex Luther’s jolly ranchers that Harley Quinn built a suit for, and sometime Batman will crush his head and the jolly rancher will be like “I guess I don’t bleed” and Batman eats him.
