‘Suicide Squad’ Director Explains Plot Hole Involving Joker Killing Robin

Suicide Squad David Ayer Jared Leto Joker Damaged Jai Courtney

Suicide Squad director Davi Ayer has addressed an inconsistency in the DC Extended Universe timeline involving Robin’s death at the hands of the Joker.

After it was confirmed that Jared Leto’s Joker has the grill because Batman knocked his teeth out after the Clown Prince of Crime murdered Robin, fans noticed an inconsistency in the DC Extended Universe timeline. In Suicide Squad, the Joker clearly has the grill during one of his first meetings with Dr. Harleen Quinzel at Arkham Asylum and the future Harley Quinn’s character bio states that she was an accomplice to Robin’s murder, meaning the Joker had his grill before killing the Boy Wonder. Now, director David Ayer has confirmed that the timeline of events was changed after Suicide Squad was finished filming.
