Zack Snyder Had Plans To Introduce Carrie Kelley’s Robin But Not Dick Grayson In DCEU

Director Zack Snyder is quite active on social media as he keeps sharing his original DC movie plans and answering fans’ questions and queries on his Vero account. Well, this time Snyder has clarified that it was Richard Grayson a.k.a. the first Robin who got killed by the Joker as it was hinted in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and not Jason Todd, the second Robin.

Recently, when a fan on Vero shared the deleted Suicide Squad footage of Batman talking to Harley Quinn about The Joker taking someone from him (referring to Robin), another fan chimed in and asked Snyder if he intended to bring Dick Grayson back after a Flashpoint movie. Snyder replied that he had no plans to bring Grayson back from the dead. However, he did tease that he had plans to introduce the female Robin, Carrie Kelley.

You can check out the posts below.

Created by Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley, the teenaged Batman fanatic, Carrie Kelley, was first introduced in Frank Miller’s 1986 graphic novel, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. As per the comic book storyline, Carrie becomes the new Robin soon after she saves Batman’s life, though she is often depicted wearing green goggles instead of the usual Robin mask.

The Batman v Superman’s infamous shot where Bruce Wayne is walking through the Batcave and stares at the Robin suit left fans wondering if the makers have plans for the return of Batman’s famous sidekick. But given the new direction the DCEU is currently going in, as well as Zack Snyder whose very unlikely to helm another DC film, there are almost zero chances to see Carrie featuring in a live action film.

Notably, Zack Snyder is still a part of the DCEU as he is involved as a producer in James Wan’s Aquaman and Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984. Moreover, he’s also been listed as an Executive Producer for the upcoming Flash solo project.

Aquaman is scheduled to debut in theaters on December 21, 2018, while Wonder Woman 1984 is currently set to release on November 1, 2019. But there’s no news yet on Matt Reeves’ The Batman project.
