So far 2-for-2 as Jason Todd has been referenced twice with the release of Batman Vs. Superman and Suicide Squad.

We all know the dead Robin suit from Batman Vs. Superman that's in the Batcave, now we get another reference to Jason Todd in Suicide Squad with Harley Quinn.

As the members of the Suicide Squad were introduced, each member was given an intro featuring credits where it's learned Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn was involved with the death of Robin (see the image below).

"Accomplice to murder of ROBIN," Harley Quinn's intro says.

Joker killed the Jason Todd Robin in the comics as well as the DCEU.

It's also been rumored that Jason Todd may come back in the upcoming solo The Batman movie as The Red Hood.

Regarding Robin:

WB did confirm it's Jason Todd.

Robin died around ten years earlier or so in a run in with Joker.

Bruce Wayne is bitterly disappointed and has had previous devastating losses.

The loss of Robin contributed to Batman's hatred of Superman.

"Suicide Squad" is now in theaters directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.

Synopsis:

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
