The main plot of the “Batman” solo movie will reportedly be inspired by “Under The Hood” and “A Death in the Family” comic books. A “dead” character will return in the movie as one of the main antagonist, along with the main villain.

[Spoiler alert]

According to a report by Joblo, the comic book character Red Hood will be a “key player” in the “Batman” solo movie. The report describes the character as DC’s answer to Marvel’s Winter Soldier, who is also a former friend and ally gone evil.

The Red Hood in the comic books is the presumed dead Robin who comes back as a vigilante and makes people think that he is Batman and in the process gives the Caped Crusader a bad name. The main plot of the forthcoming movie is said to take a similar route, with Jason Todd coming back and making his former ally look like a “criminal.”

Red Hood will also leave clues about his identity for Batman and the two characters will eventually confront each other in the movie. The main villain of the movie, however, is reported to be The Joker.

The comic book character Dick Grayson is also featured in the movie, according to the report. The character will be seen as the superhero Nightwing and not as Robin. He will help Batman take on the villains in the movie.

The report notes that the existence of Robin has already been teased in the trailer of “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Robin is expected to make a cameo appearance in the movie, which may be a flashback sequence, and also in “Suicide Squad.”

Ben Affleck, who is playing the role of the Caped Crusader in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will be directing the solo movie of his character. Affleck is also said to be involved with the writing of the script of the movie, along with Geoff Johns.
