    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!

                                  I remember watching the old batman movies as a young child in like 2012 and these shows were always AMAZING to me. This theory was unexpected.

                                                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?

                                                  Tim Drake... as DCEU'S Joker... very plausible.
