There were many fan theories surrounding the role of Batman and The Joker in the film, and if said Batman will be making more than just a cameo appearance in the film.

As the release of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice inches closer, one theory about Jared Leto's Joker just won't die down.

The theory goes that The Joker in the Suicide Squad movie is actually Jason Todd, Batman's former partner Robin who crossed over to the dark side.

Many have wondered if it could be Jason Todd, whose defaced costume that was seen in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. There have been comparisons between Joker’s Suicide Squad promotional portrait and the Robin suit seen in the latest Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that there are two circular marks on each of Joker’s shoulders, which a reddit user believes may be "a gunshot, puncture, or burn mark." Now take a look at the Robin suit, and you’ll see two similar circular marks on the shoulders as well.

This goes along with previous speculation that Joker’s tattoos are actually clues to Jason being the new Clown Prince of Crime. Jason also appeared on the videogame Batman: Arkham Knight.

In speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Suicide Squad director David Ayer addressed the theory: “It ain’t the case. He’s not.”

So there you have it. But the question is, will we get to see more of the iconic villain's back story?

Suicide Squad has Jared Leto starring as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Will Smith as Dead Shot and hits theaters on 5 August 2016.
