It seems like there may have been evidence of The Joker's true identity in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice right in front of our eyes. It just hadn't been pointed out to us until now.

A fan has linked a couple of official photos that shed some light on the villain and his past. This is just speculation for now, but it's very intriguing and if true, it's a major SPOILER, so if you don't want to know, stop reading now!


It has been rumored in the past that the Joker in the DC Extended Universe used to be Robin. Before you think that theory is ridiculous, just remember that Dick Grayson went insane and became the new Joker in Frank Miller‘s The Dark Knight Strikes Again. So this very well could happen in the movies, especially since director Zack Snyder was heavily inspired by Miller's Batman comics.

A lot of that speculation started when in the Batman v Superman trailer Batman asked Alfred, “20 years in Gotham, how many good guys are left? How many stayed that way?”

Well, this new evidence that has come to light could be proof that Batman was referring to Robin. As you can see in the photos below, there are two scars on Joker's shoulders that match up with two damaged spots on the shoulders of Robin's suit.

This very well could prove that this could be a second generation version of the Joker. But maybe it's just a crazy coincidence.
