A rumor was started that Eli Snyder was going to play Robin in a flashback sequence in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and for a while the internet took a huge hold of this unconfirmed rumor and now Zack Snyder, director of the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has officially debunked that rumor.
In an interview with Yahoo! Movies Zack Snyder spoke up about the rumor and how he has felt about fake scripts and having his son in the role. Of course Zack Snyder has had his son in his films before, so while the rumor was started by an unreliable source it did have some weight for some to believe.
On the rumors that have come from this film
“There are so many, it’s insanity. It’s funny because every now and then someone will touch on something that’s kind of true, but the next thing they say makes me realize that they took a wild guess. They’ll say something and I’ll say “Oh snap, they must have seen the script.” And then they’ll say, “And this happens!” And then I’ll go, They have no idea what they’re talking about. It’s fun for everyone to speculate and take shots and think of things and try to sell it. There’s an industry in selling your guess. [People think], “I’m going to make a fake script and look like I read the real one.” What length are you willing to go?”
On his son playing Robin
“There’s a rumor that my son is [playing] Robin. It’s not true. Now there are all these images of him that people have made where he’s dressed like Robin. It’s fun to hear and see them.”
