  40. Suicide Squad and the A.R.G.U.S. website show that Harley Quinn was born in July 1990. Suicide Squad also shows that she was already with the Joker when Robin died. Zack Snyder stated, "In my mind, it was that Robin had died about 10 years earlier in some run-in with a young Joker". If Robin died 10 years before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is in November 2015, that would place it around late 2005, when Harley was 15, and therefore put those scenes with Harley and Joker when she is 15 or younger. However, the absolute youngest Harley could be in those scenes is around 20, 18-19 at a real push. The Suicide Squad: Behind the Scenes with the Worst Heroes Ever book shows a rap sheet for Harley which gives her first crime as being committed on June 30, 2009 - a relatively smaller crime of assaulting a police officer. This has to be taken to be after she has met the Joker, meaning her time with the Joker has to have started in 2009, when Harley was 18. It absolutely cannot be any earlier. As her rap sheet details how her crimes escalated, in 2009 she goes no further than breaking and entering. However, in February 2010, she is convicted of kidnapping. By then, it can be taken that Harley has reached the point where she would have been an accomplice to Robin's death - perhaps with the kidnapping charge being to do with her part in the murder. So, the earliest Robin's death can really be is February 2010. This is placed as early as possible to as best as possible meet Snyder's comment, but it cannot be more than 5½ years to still fit with Suicide Squad.
  41. In Suicide Squad: Behind the Scenes with the Worst Heroes Ever is shown that Captain Boomerang attempted to steal the diamond exchange in November 18, 2009. As he was later captured by Flash, this implied that Barry gained his superpowers shortly before (enough time to create his red suit). This also matches with his appearance, as in 2009 Barry should be 18 years old, with a similar physical appearance to his mid-2010s self.
