The DCEU Could Have Had Carrie Kelley As Robin — Confirms Dick Grayson’s Death


Carrie Kelley as Robin in the DCEU?

Me, oh my. Zack Snyder certainly had big plans for the DC Extended Universe. Before Batman v Superman s**t the bed, Warner Bros. put the helmer in charge of much of the planning for the franchise’s future. There’s a reason he got to cast the likes of Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller, and Jason Momoa. He had mad plans for how these guys’s stories would play out. From what we understand, the original vision for the DCEU was much more…cohesive.

Without a doubt, the DCEU we’re experiencing now is nothing like the one we were supposed to get. I’m sure that’ll be much more clear once we get a load of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. But if you want another peek into what could have been, you need look no further than recent comments from Snyder himself.

On the Vero social media platform, one fan asked an important question regarding Robin. As we know, Robin was killed in the Batman v Superman universe — presumably killed by the Joker. The evidence of that was shown on the spray-painted suit in the Batcave. So, what plans were there for Robin in the future? The aforementioned fan asked if the plan was to bring back Dick Grayson.

Snyder’s response simply read, “Stay dead…till Carrie.”

So this blew my mind in two ways. First off, I thought the question from the fan was interesting because it named the wrong Robin. Fans of the comic know that the Robin killed by the Joker with a crowbar is Jason Todd. Of course, Jason Todd eventually returned, but that’s neither here nor there. In this response, Snyder seems to confirm that Dick Grayson was the one who bit the dust, which is odd. Of course, it could just be a matter of him not wanting to correct a fan, but it’s hard to say.

The other part I thought was cool was the mentioning of Carrie. Carrie Kelley is the alternate world Robin, introduced in The Dark Knight Returns back in 1986. This really does cement the idea that Snyder’s vision of the DCEU was never meant to feel like a conventional DC world. From Superman to Batman and his take on Wonder Woman, this world was always supposed to feel Elseworld in nature. While I can understand fans’ problems with his movies, I’ll always be a bit sad we likely won’t get to see this whole world realized on the big screen. Thank goodness we’re still getting the Snyder cut.
