5 Comic Book Characters Who Were Poorly Recast

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After months of speculation, DC have finally unveiled the specifics of their cinematic universe and revealed the projected release dates of their upcoming films, but what’s really excited the fanbase is the casting revelations.

Many iconic comic book characters have been recast over the years, and while there may initially be some resistance from the fan community, these choices often work out for the best. People were skeptical that Heath Ledger could better Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of the Joker, but his is now the definitive version of the character. Other actors, like Andrew Garfield, Christian Bale and Henry Cavill, have all carved their own mark on internationally renowned heroes as well.

Despite this, the comic book community rose up in outrage when Ben Affleck was cast as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Jesse Eisenberg didn’t fare much better either once it »

Editorial: Why I Support Ezra Miller As The Flash

17 October 2014 6:06 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Which seems to be yet another controversial casting decision, as Ezra Miller will be portraying Barry Allen/The Flash on the big screen. I'm going to state my reasonings as to why I support him in the role. He's A Talented Actor   I'm not familiar with Ezra Miller, so surely Warner Bros saw something in him to end up nabbing the role as Barry Allen/The Flash. Particularly looking at his roles in The Perks of Being A Wallflower and We Need To Talk About Kevin, meaning he's incredibly talented no doubt. I'll be sure to watch those films at some point, in order to get an idea what he'll be like as Barry. I Like The Casting.. Simply Because It's Different   I don't expect everyone to like this choice, I get that. But for me this is interesting, seeing similarities in reaction to Jesse Eisenberg being cast as Lex »

'Batman v Superman' Casts Jena Malone; Is She Robin?

17 October 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

(Tread carefully; there are Major Spoilers ahead!) This morning, a news report from Channel 10 Wilx in East Lansing, Michigan, confirmed that a female Robin will be appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The news came from an extra who wished to remain anonymous. This matched up with earlier reports that actress Jena Malone had dyed her hair red to play Carrie Kelley, the Robin in Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. Now The Hollywood Reporter is confirming that Jena Malone has indeed been cast in director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up. But is she playing Robin?

There is no confirmation from Warner Bros. or DC about this late addition to the cast, or which character she is actually playing. According to the Channel 10 news report, the character was added to the script late in the game during some last minute rewrites. Multiple sources confirm that Jena Malone »

Jena Malone Will Appear in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in “Mystery Role”

17 October 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

You might have noticed some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice news floating around courtesy of an extra who chose to break his signed confidentiality agreement today, but now we’ve finally got a more concrete report that doesn’t call for Warner Bros. to file lawsuit. Apparently multiple sources have confirmed that Jena Malone is indeed in the film, but there’s no word on whether or not she’s actually portraying a female version of Batman’s sidekick, Robin.  Hit the jump for more on Malone’s involvement in the film.  Batman v Superman is due in theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons. Malone was spotted on the Detroit set back in August, so there’s been speculation that she has a role in the film for a while now. »

Is Jena Malone Playing Female Robin in Batman V Superman?

17 October 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The latest rumor surrounding Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is that the film will feature a female Robin a.k.a. Carrie Kelly played by actress Jena Malone. This news comes from a local news station in Detroit Michigan where the film is currently shooting. One of the things they are currently shooting involves Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). You can read more about that here, but click at your own risk because there are spoilers. 

Wilx-10 News reporter Kirk Montgomery talked with one of the extras at Michigan State University, who said, “I’ve also learned that the character of Robin is now female.” On top of that Malone, who recently appeared in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, has been seen on the set of the film sporting a new red hairdo.

More rumours that Jena Malone is playing Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

17 October 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks back, rumour resurfaced claiming that Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder for the role of Carrie Kelley (a.k.a. The Dark Knight Returns’ Robin) in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, stemming from the fact that the actress had died her hair red – much like the character in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

Well, Variety is now quoting an alleged extra from the top-secret film, who has apparently told local news station Wilx-10 that “the character of Robin is now female”. This certainly adds some credence to the original report, unless the “extra” is just making it up to get themselves on the local news, of course…

Would you like to see Carrie Kelley in Batman v Superman, and if so, is Jena Malone a good choice for the part?

'Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice' Spoilers: Movie Extra Reveals Robin's Identity and More

17 October 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

(You know the drill guys, Spoilers Ahead:)

Jena Malone, who plays a true badass in Hunger Games: Catching Fire, is your new Robin in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The news comes from one of the movie extras, who is risking a $5 million fine from Warner Bros. for revealing the details.

The individual sat down with a local news station in Michigan, Wilx-10 News, and revealed to them Robin's female identity. Malone had previously been spotted in Detroit. (So no, she wasn't just "hanging out" around the set.)

The source also commented on a scene that was being shot, involving a red carpet and some faux news coverage vans. The scene in question was being shot at the Art Museum on the Michigan State University campus, and it will involve "a fight between Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg)."

'Batman v Superman' Extra Leaks Lex Luthor Scene Details

17 October 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice crew is not having the best of times keeping things locked down in Michigan. First they reportedly had a Batmobile stolen, and now a local working as an extra has stolen some key scene information, providing a couple of big spoilers and one massive reveal to a local TV station in East Lansing. You should stop reading now, as Major Spoilers lie ahead...

Speaking with News 10 Wilx, an unidentified source working on director Zack Snyder's impending superhero adventure confirms that a female Robin does appear in Dawn of Justice. This matches up with what we've heard recently regarding Jena Malone possibly joining the film, after she was spotted on set and then later revealed her new red hair on Instargram, which matches Robin's look in the Frank Miller graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. It seems we'll definitely be seeing Carrie Kelley in the movie. »

Brief Fight Scene Description from Batman V Superman

17 October 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I'll start out with a Spoiler Warning just incase you don't want anything spoiled for you. 

I came across some details at Batman-News about a scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that was recently shot at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum on the Msu campus this week. According to the report, the museum is being used as Lex Luthor’s home in the movie, and they were filming a big party scene that was being hosted by Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor. The people attending that party included Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne), Henry Cavill (Clark Kent), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince), Holly Hunter (Us Senator), and Tao Okamoto (Mercy Graves). There's a big fight sequence that goes down at the party that sparks a major response, and here's a short description of that thanks to Wilx News 10:

Why Batman v Superman Will Include This Insane Party

16 October 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What's the point of having a lot of money if you're not going to have some fun with it? It's why we so often see billionaire characters in Hollywood movies throw big, lavish parties - and it turns out that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is no different. What does set Luthor's big bash apart, however, is his very special guest list, which reportedly includes a good number of superheroes. Batman-News has reported a new scoop from a source who has told them that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming a party sequence at Lex Luthor's house. Standing in for the villain's home is the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum on the Michigan State University campus, which is a rather interesting looking building to say the least: So who is going to be attending the party?

Non-Twilight Film Roles That Will Restore Your Faith in Kristen Stewart

16 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

With Camp X-Ray hitting theaters this weekend, Kristen Stewart is finally exploring life beyond Twilight. The indie drama, which tells the story of one soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, is a far cry from Bella and the world of vampires Stewart became so famous for over the past five years. During that time, Stewart became pigeonholed and often hated on for her participation in The Twilight Saga. And for those who only know those films are doing themselves a disservice. Her latest film — the first of three high profile films she has coming out this year — has earned the actress accolades on the festival circuit and reminded many of the promise she showed in roles, such as Sarah Altman in Panic Room or Emily in Adventureland. It’s those films that fans (and the haters) should watch if they want to restore their faith in Stewart.

'Batman v Superman' Crew Is Building Something Big in New Mexico

15 October 2014 9:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The DC Comics movie news continues to roll on into the night. After 10 new titles were announced this morning, followed by possible casting and story rumors, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is getting in on the action with a special news report out of New Mexico.

Zack Snyder and his crew have begun construction on something huge in the New Mexico desert. And it looks to be some sort of giant fortress. Spotted just outside of Deming, some are speculating that this could be the Hall of Justice. Or maybe its a secret villain layer built by Lex Luthor.

DC and Warner Bros. obviously have no comment, but Albuqerque's own Koat 7 brings video of the construction site, and the buildings being erected there. Along with comments from the locals who have seen this giant set with their own eyes.

While we won't likely know what this structure is being used for, »
