If you are the kind of person that hates any kind of spoiler, than you should stop reading this article as it pertains to a character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice who died seventeen years before the film takes place.

Still here? It’s a minor spoiler, but still a spoiler.

So Bad Ass Digest is reporting that years before the events of this film take place, Detective James Gordon died. Apparently, they have a copy of the script (or have seen parts of it) and there is a memorial plaque to James Gordon, which would explain why this role wasn’t cast.


This development doesn’t really impact the story of the film too much since most of it happens in Metropolis, though it can be presumed that Batman still struggles with the loss, maybe even blames himself for it. Bad Ass Digest goes on to presume, “While pre-Terrio drafts of the script mentioned a deceased Robin, later iterations closer to the start of shooting don’t – perhaps in this continuity The Joker killed Jim Gordon instead of Robin?”

It’s unclear what WB’s future Batman movies look like. Perhaps they stay in the current continuity with Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman all existing at the same time, or maybe they do flashbacks and show Batman before the advent of Superman. If they do it that way, it could be interesting to see the build to the death of Jim Gordon.

Will we get to see Jared Leto’s Joker in these movies?
