The first official trailer for [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) came out last Friday, to the joy of many fans (including myself). After watching this trailer an shamelessly large amount of times, I noticed two easter eggs regarding Batman that might be very important to the movie. One of which has been talked about a lot, the other I'm not sure anyone has caught on to yet.

The Memorial

So Robin won't be appearing?
So Robin won't be appearing?

During the shot where it zooms in on Bruce Wayne with the fantastic Alfred voiceover by Jeremy Irons, there appears to be some kind of suit in the background. This has been assumed by many to be the Robin suit which Batman has in the Batcave after the death of Jason Todd, the second Robin. If you need more convincing, here is a shot of the suit highlighted.

You can clearly see a cape as well as a Robin-like boot design. It has also been rumored that the Joker and Harley Quinn will have an estranged relationship in Suicide Squad, as Harley feels guilty for Jason Todd's death.

There also was recently a photo leaked of a tombstone for Dick Grayson (full name Richard John Grayson) which is allegedly (key word allegedly) part of the film's set, suggesting that Dick Grayson is killed off instead of Jason Todd.

However, I believe that this tombstone is actually fake. I found this comment on the Facebook post where I learned of this photo which explains why it is fake.

Let's not forget the likely possibility that Dick Grayson is featured in BvS with a small role portrayed by actor Scoot McNairy. Rest assured, Nightwing is not dead yet.

The Armored Batsuit is...ZOD's SUIT???

Take a close look at the armored Batsuit in the movie:

Now take a look at Zod's suit from [Man of Steel](movie:15593).

What has Zod left behind?
What has Zod left behind?

The two suits seem to have very similar patterns around the neck and shoulder area. As seen during the final battle of MoS, Zod left his Batsuit on the LexCorp building during his fight with Superman.

Is it possible that Bruce Wayne obtained General Zod's suit and modified it to become an armored Batsuit? Or maybe Lex Luthor obtained the suit and gave it to Bruce? What if using a suit with Kryptonian armor causes Batman to have a huge advantage? As of now, no one knows. But it certainly generates some interesting theories.


Are these legit? Are they totally wrong? Is it possible? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
