In the comics, Jason Todd died on April 27, 1985.
Yesterday saw the official Batman Vs. Superman Instagram account reveal that the Robin in the movie died 20 years ago on the same day.
Now it could be just a coincidence, but some reddit users don’t think so, and then there is the fact that the Red Hood is rumored for the solo Ben Affleck Batman movie.
It also means possibly that Dick Grayson is Nightwing in the DCEU.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is directed by Zack Snyder starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
