Looks Like Robin Was Also a Murderer in 'Batman v Superman'
As anyone who has seen Zack Snyder's ultra-dark Batman v Superman can testify, both Batman and Superman are murderers in the film universe the director has created. But it looks like they weren't the only heroes in the DCU who enjoy killing criminals.

You probably know that Robin isn't in the film because he's already dead, killed at the hands of the Joker, and Bruce Wayne keeps his vandalized suit around as a reminder. But what you may not have noticed is the weapon that his suit is holding. At first glance, it looks like it's one of the plain ol' staffs that incarnations of the Boy Wonder have used in the past to incapacitate bad guys, but the folks at Digital Spy noticed that in the movie's Tech Manual, the weapon is actually revealed to be a metal halberd; an axe/spear hybrid that looks like it could slice someone's head off. In other words, if Robin ever hit somebody with this thing, they weren't getting back up. Ever.

Once again, Snyder has turned a beloved and wholesome character into a vicious killer. We can't wait to see what he does with Justice League, which will probably feature Aquaman nonchalantly ripping the dorsal fins off of dolphins while the Flash goes back in time to murder his enemies when they're children. It's sure to be a blast, bring the whole family.
