Who is Robin in ‘Batman v Superman’???


We got our first real confirmation of Robin’s existence in the new DC Cinematic Universe from the Comic-Con Batman v Superman trailer. In it we see a Robin suit in a glass case, spray painted by the Joker. It’s a strong indication that The Boy Wonder is dead at the Jokers hand and Bat man has very obviously not gotten over it.

We’ve heard rumor that Carrie Kelly may make an appearance in BvS, but it seems unlikely that she’s play a dead Robin, especially looking at the suit. Money is Dick Grayson being the former young ward based on previously leaked pictures of his tombstone on the Wayne Manor grounds.

Now we have some speculation about who might be playing what we assume is young Grayson and it’s a familiar face.

"Zack Snyder’s hot shot quaterback son Eli is supposedly playing the dead Robin that was filmed with Jared Leto.Eli Snyder played the young Leonidas in 300 and young Rorschach in The Watchmen.Eli Snyder is quite the athlete. He is 6’0″ and weighs 174 pounds. As the starting quarterback, Eli put up good stats at Maranatha High Varsity Football. Watching Eli’s senior highlight reel, he certainly has the youth, athleticism, and physicality to be Robin in real life!Due to the secretive nature surrounding the film, it’s been hard to confirm this so consider this a hot rumor for now.Meanwhile, Eli Snyder has a bright future ahead of him as he committed to attend UCLA in the fall and study film."

This rumor comes from Heroic Hollywood and it seems plausible. Considering Snyder’s penchant for using his son, I’d say this was likely.
