"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - A Female 'Robin' ?

19 October 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, actress Jenna Malone ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") will play the iconic sidekick of 'Batman' in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

Malone is reportedly playing DC Comics' female 'Robin', 'Carrie Kelley', created by Frank Miller, first appearing in DC Comics' "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" #1. (1986). 

"...'Carrie' was a schoolgirl and girl scout who was attacked by muggers one night, but was saved by the recently returned and grizzled elder Batman on his first night out of retirement.

"She would then spend her lunch money on a 'Robin' costume and hunt down some petty con-men to find Batman again, using a slingshot loaded with firecrackers as weapons.

Her parents were very neglectful of her, as one-time activists and hippies during the 1960's that became 'apathetic stoners'..."

Jena Malone cast as Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

18 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jena Malone is rumoured to be cast in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay actress may have been cast as a female Robin, according to a Wilx-10 report later backed up by The Hollywood Reporter.

The original report also features an interview with an anonymous extra, who claims to have been on set for a fight scene between Batman and Lex Luthor at a swanky party.

The extra could face a multimillion-dollar lawsuit for violating the movie's nondisclosure agreements.

While Malone's involvement as a female Robin is yet to be officially confirmed by Warner Bros, rumours originally surfaced after the actress dyed her hair red.


Drastic times call for drastic measures.

Details for the upcoming movie remain thin on the ground, although director Zack Snyder has previously said that the film will take cues from Frank Miller's 1980s mini-series The Dark Knight Returns. »

Jena Malone Joins Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

17 October 2014 6:28 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A few months back, Jena Malone was spotted on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by her Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder, fueling speculation that the actress has a part in the upcoming first step on the road to a DC Cinematic Universe. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed she will have a mystery role in the movie. Of course, this has put the rumour mill into overdrive, with the most popular being that she will be portraying Carrie Kelly, a female version of Batman's sidekick Robin from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns mini series. Snyder is already drawing from The Dark Knight Returns for the look of Batman's costume, and even used an excerpt from the series' final issue to announce the project at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, so it's a rumour that could have some legs. Of course, it's all speculation until we hear something concrete, »

'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 »

Malone Is A Female Robin In "Batman"?

17 October 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The other month actress Jena Malone was spotted on the set of Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". At the time some speculated she had a role in the film, but that talk was dismissed and it was suggested that the actress was merely visiting Snyder who had worked with her on "Sucker Punch".

It turns out there may have been more to it than first thought. This morning came a report from Channel 10 Wilx in Michigan in which a source for them, an extra from the set who wished to remain anonymous, claims that Malone is in the film and she's playing a female Robin.

The source for the news station also described a scene set at Lex Luthor's house (which is actually being shot at an Art Museum on the Michigan State University campus), where the super villain gets in a physical altercation with Bruce Wayne. »

Jena Malone Joins Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice In Mystery Role

17 October 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After months of speculation, THR is now confirming that Sucker Punch and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actress Jena Malone has joined Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in “a mystery role.”

Rumors of Malone’s involvement in the highly-anticipated superhero showdown began a few months ago, when the actress visited the set of the film. At the time, her visit was chalked up as nothing more than just that, a visit to her friend Zack Snyder. However, rumors like this don’t die easily, and were given new life this month when Malone was spotted with red dyed hair. That may seem like a minor detail, but for fans of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns (which Snyder is drawing heavy influences from for Bvs), that pointed toward Malone playing the female Robin, Carrie Kelley.

I’ll be the first to admit that I found those early rumors a bit ridiculous, »

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.

Local reporter believes Detroit extra knows major character spoiler for 'Batman v Superman'

17 October 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warner Bros has been hard at work on "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" in Detroit, where local news crews have been stalking the film, trying to break whatever they could about the production. Now it appears one station is at the center of a controversy about information they revealed. While there are plenty of details that have already been confirmed about the film, the vast majority of what we'll see in March of 2016 is still a mystery. And good for them. Warner Bros. has no other film in production right no that is more important to their overall game plan for their tentpole movies for the next six years. Forget about the creative side for a moment… just in terms of numbers, this movie matters more to them than anything else they're making right now. If it works, they are off to the races. If it doesn't, then they're »

Robin is Female in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice?

17 October 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Rumors about Batman's sidekick are nothing new for Dawn of Justice (including Nightwing talk), but now a supposed extra on the set has come forward to confirm Robin is in the film and will be a female.  There's more on this report, but if you're trying to avoid any potential spoilers, now's your chance to turn around.

If the latest report is to be believed (it's coming from a news station and then shared by The Wrap, so it's decently credible), then it looks like Jena Malone could be our new Robin in the form of Carrie Kelley.  As I mentioned, the report is coming from a news cast, where an extra talked to them about Warner Bros. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, risking a $5 million breach of contract lawsuit in the process.  

He claims that Jena Malone (Hunger Games: Catching Fire), who sparked rumors a while ago by »

Female Robin Rumoured For Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

17 October 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warning: there are mild Spoilers in this article.

As the main bulk of shooting in Detroit wraps on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, a local NBC-affiliate news team in the Lansing area has become privy to a glut of new information about the sequel. That’s nothing out of the ordinary, especially after we saw aerial shots of a new set being built for Zack Snyder’s follow-up yesterday in New Mexico. However, today’s news may cost one shortsighted extra a whopping $5 million. Why? Because he broke a confidentiality agreement by revealing secretive plot points with a Wilx-10 reporter.

The biggest piece of info concerns Batman’s loyal sidekick, Robin, who we are now led to believe is female. This rumour remains unconfirmed (obviously, as the studio didn’t opt to reveal it) but might hold true as this isn’t the first time the idea has been suggested. »

Watch: Spoiler-ific Local News Report On 'Batman v. Superman' That Caused WB To Lauch A Lawsuit

17 October 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If the headline didn't give it away: **Spoiler Alert**. But if you don't fear learning a few new details about "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice", then march onwards... First, some context. At the end of the summer, actress Jena Malone was spotted on the set of the Zack Snyder-directed film, and you'll recall she previously worked with the filmmaker on "Sucker Punch." Now, according to a report from Wilx in Lansing, Michigan, her role in the new film may have been revealed. According to the puzzle pieces being put together, Malone is actually playing Robin—that's right, the character in Snyder's film is a young woman instead of the traditional young man. (In Frank Miller's graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, however,a young girl named Carrie Kelly fills the Robin role, not Dick Grayson.) And the plot thickens because, despite the best efforts of Wilx to »

'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. »

Haunting Batman and Catwoman Portraits by Alex Ruiz

14 October 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If you’re looking for a way into fanboys’ hearts, just stick glowing white eyes on Batman. It was cool to see Christian Bale sporting them towards the end of The Dark Knight, and it was even more exhilarating seeing Ben Affleck rock the glowing white eyes and Frank Miller-inspired armor in the Comic-Con teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Artist Alex Ruiz goes a completely opposite but still pleasing route for this gritty and textured Batman portrait. Not being able to see the Caped Crusader’s eyes makes him a bit expressionless, but it also makes him more intimidating and unsettling. Ruiz’s Catwoman portrait also has very interesting eyes. The sheer size of them reminds me of a Margaret Keane, and the bat (Batsignal perhaps?) reflected in them is a nice touch.

Why Michael Keaton Turned Down $15 Million for Batman 3

13 October 2014 3:08 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Michael Keaton is currently doing press for his new movie Birdman, and the media can't seem to help but ask him about Batman. The superhero is a hot topic of discussion because of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is currently in production. Keaton played Bruce Wayne/Batman in Tim Burton's Batman and Batman Returns. He was supposed to come back for a third Batman film, but once Burton's film was ditched by the studio in favor of Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever things took a turn for the worse. The studio offered Keaton $15 million dollars to reprise his role as the Dark Knight in the film, but he turned it down. CBS Sunday Morning asked why he turned it down and he gave one simple answer,

"Sucked. Yeah, it just was awful!"

It really was. It must have been hard to turn down $15 million though! That's a lot of freakin' money! »

Netflix Teases First Looks, New Suit For Its Marvel ‘Daredevil’ Series

13 October 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Black is the new red, at least for actor Charlie Cox. The star of Netflix’s upcoming Marvel series Daredevil will be donning an ensemble different than the superhero’s previous portrayals. Footage from the show was revealed exclusively to attendees at New York Comic Con on October 11, 2014 and included glimpses of Daredevil’s new garb. The look is inspired by the “Daredevil: Man Without Fear” comic series by Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr. While some reporters believe the costume change is Marvel’s attempt to stay as far away as possible from the 2003 flop of a film Daredevil, the black clothing could simply be a prototype as the character Matt Murdock begins his journey as the blind superhero. In addition to the dark attire, Nycc attendees were also treated to a shot of Cox as Murdock in a grey suit and rose-hued glasses, presumably as he goes »

Space Pirate Captain Harlock review

13 October 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Anime fan favourite Space Pirate Captain Harlock stars in a new movie... but is it worth the wait?

If you're a fan of manga, you probably already know Harlock, although his fan following is much larger in France, Quebec and Japan. Harlock is the brainchild of Leiji Matsumoto (creator of Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers). Harlock was created in the 50s, but his breakthrough came in 1978 with the release of the original television series, Space Pirate Captain Harlock. He has since then seen many incarnations, but he had been absent from our screens since 2002. Given the current trend of revisiting old franchise favourites, Harlock was bound to suffer the reboot treatment at one point. Harlock has already been rebooted several times over the years, long before the term "reboot" was actually coined, so it shouldn't have been a big deal, but some fans feared that Harlock's move to the big »
