Breaking: Zack Snyder’s Son is NOT Robin in Batman v Superman!


OK, we can lay this one to rest.

Zack Snyder’s son Eli is NOT playing Robin in Batman v Superman as was rumored for a while now. When talking about his new Super Bowl campaign with Doritos, Snyder was asked about the craziest internet rumors that have surfaced surrounding the film.

"There are so many, it’s insanity. 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."

To be fair, Snyder DID post this photo on his private Instagram with the caption ‘Boy wonder?’ and he HAS used his son in previous films. I don’t think the rumor was all that crazy.
