    With Wonder Woman coming out in theaters this week, I felt it was time to take a look back at some of DC's other movies from the past few years. Specifically, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. Back before Suicide Squad and Batman v. Superman hit theaters, there was a theory kicking around that Jared Leto's Joker was secretly Batman's sidekick, Robin. But the Director of Suicide Squad, David Ayer, seemed to dismiss this saying that Jason Todd, former Robin #2 was NOT the Joker. However, the proof we cover today shows that Suicide Squad's Joker can still be Robin...just not the Robin that everyone thought.

    If you think you've heard this Batman v Superman/Suicide Squad theory before, you ain't seen NOTHING yet!

      Joker is not robin because robin doesn’t have silver teeth

        So if the Joker and a Harley can make clones of Joker, how many clones of the Joker are there at a time single time of a movie or show?

                                It's Jason Todd because in DC's Titans Jason Todd is wearing the same suit so joker killed Jason Todd :(

                                  10:04 yeah about that, Dick Grayson is younger than Bruce Wayne, so how can he already be dead? also he was ~18 when he died and Bruce Wayne was a child?

                                            i am sorry to say but i will have to debunk tim drqake being joker because the series TITANS on netflix shows he moves out of gotham and sorta quits being robin but wears the suit to hide his identity but he had a falling out with batman
