Superhero Buzz: 'Batman v Superman' Finds Its Robin? Plus: Jason Momoa Talks 'Aquaman' and More

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you’ve got a wicked case of the Mondays, maybe a piping-hot batch of superhero news will turn your frown upside down. Today we’ve got the latest on the gender-bending potential Robin casting, Jason Momoa on playing Aquaman, and more. The big news on Friday was that actress Jena Malone has a part in the upcoming Zack Snyder film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner Bros. isn’t saying who she’s playing, but an adventurous extra on the film technically violated his (or her) nondisclosure agreement to reveal that the film features a female Robin. Could this be Malone’s part? The idea of a woman playing Robin isn’t as far-fetched as casual fans think – Carrie Kelley was Batman’s sidekick in The Dark Knight Returns miniseries...

Tech Support: 'Godzilla,' 'Fury,' 'Interstellar' and more square off for Best Sound Editing

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cling. Clang. Crash. Welcome to the category of Best Sound Editing, which awards the creation and integration of artificial sounds into a movie's soundtrack. This distinguishes this category from Best Sound Mixing, which awards the mixing of the film's overall soundtrack. Due to the emphasis on creating artificial sounds, action films and war films tend to do particularly well here. The branch is also not afraid to give a film a standalone nomination (this decade, that has included "All is Lost," "Tron: Legacy," "Drive" and "Unstoppable"). In the not-too-distant past, animated films were also practically annual staples, which is unsurprising given the need to manifest everything you hear in such productions. The sound branch has its favorite contenders who regularly return. Names like Richard Hymns and Wylie Stateman immediately jump to mind. This is likely the case to a greater extent in Sound Editing than Sound Mixing. But every year also sees new nominees. »

15 Crazy Facts You Just Have To Accept To Enjoy The Dark Knight Trilogy

6 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

There’s no doubting the influence that Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight saga has had on blockbuster cinema as a whole: his dark, gritty style has been adopted by numerous high-profile films, perhaps most obviously Sam MendesSkyfall, which was about as Batman as a James Bond film could ever be short of kitting Daniel Craig out in a Batsuit. With a mountain of critical acclaim and an even bigger pile of money generated from Nolan’s franchise, the series is about as entertaining as Hollywood blockbusters can get, but even so, that doesn’t mean the films aren’t without their issues and gaping flaws that simply have to be accepted in order to still enjoy the movies.

Plot holes and dubious logic are highly abundant throughout all three films, as well as some unfortunate technical issues, while Nolan’s cold, “detached” directorial approach is also a bit of a problem, »

Tom Hardy Also in Running to Play Title Villain in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

6 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While Tom Hardy was recently listed as being up for a role in the forthcoming DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, the first film that will follow Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, he's got another comic book project chasing him too. The Wrap reports that The Dark Knight Rises and Inception star is also being courted for the titular villain role in X-Men: Apocalpyse. Funnily enough, Hardy was also shortlisted to once be up for the role of Doctor Strange along with Benedict Cumberbatch, the latter of which is still in the running for that role as Marvel continues to find someone to take the lead role in their Phase Three film. The likelier role for Hardy would be Suicide Squad, if only because he's worked with producer Charles Roven before on The Dark Knight trilogy, and he's very involved in what's happening with all the DC Comics universe films. »

Jena Malone linked with key role in Batman V Superman

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A potentially big spoiler for Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice lies within...

Spoiler warning: if true, this story might reveal something about Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice that you'd prefer to find out of the big screen when the film is released.

As such, we're deploying Daphne The Spoiler Squirrel so you don't accidentally read something you don't want to. Scroll past Daphne and her nuts at your peril...

Here's a story that broke over the weekend, and seemed to, er, 'cause a bit of discussion'. Jena Malone has become the latest addition to the cast of Zack Snyder's still-shooting Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. And there are reports that she's going to be taking on the role of Robin in the movie.

As always though in the world of Batman casting, things aren't quite that straightforward.

For starters, we're in deep rumour territory. »

Why a female Robin would be good for Batman v Superman

18 October 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on why a female Robin would be good for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice….

There’s been some speculation that Jena Malone will actually be playing the female version of Robin, Carrie Kelley, in 2016s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – first when Malone visited the set a few months back, then a recent picture of her with red hair on Instagram, and most recently the reported confirmation from an extra that the film features a female Robin. This may all still be coincidence and the “extra” could be lying about a female Robin being in the film, capitalizing on Jena Malone’s recent hair change. But, if it is true, a female Robin may actually do the film some good.

Firstly comic book movies lack strong female characters and this would be an opportunity to rectify that. The film is set to feature Gal Gadot as »

Adam McKay on rewriting Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man script

18 October 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the shock departure of Edgar Wright following years of development on Ant-Man, Marvel Studios brought in Peyton Reed (The Break-Up) as his replacement in the director’s chair, while Adam McKay (Anchorman) also signed on to rework the script by Wright and his writing partner Joe Cornish (Attack the Block). Filming on the Phase Three movie is now of course well underway, and Collider has caught up with McKay, who has spoken about his work on the film, as well as how much of Wright’s original script has made it through to the final product. Here’s what he had to say:

“[Paul Rudd] called me when Edgar Wright stepped away from the project and told me what was going on. I went and met with Marvel, and I was a little dubious just because I’m friends with Edgar and I didn’t know what the story was, and »

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.

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. »

8 Theories About The Origins Of Heath Ledger’s Joker

18 October 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

It’s over six years since The Dark Knight took the world by storm and we still can’t stop thinking about Heath Ledger’s incredible performance as the Joker. Originally met with a fan backlash that makes Ben Affleck’s Batman feel loved, as publicity stills and trailers were slowly released it became apparent that Ledger had delivered something incredibly special.

This is made all the more impressive as it was an accepted ‘fact’ amongst the fans that no one could ever do the character better than Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton’s Batman. Now that sentiment feels laughable; next to The Dark Knight’s version, Jack Napier could pass for a genuine children’s entertainer.

One of the biggest elements of the character that Nolan’s version trumped Burton’s was in the origin, or lack thereof; unlike Nicholson, whose story provided the main arc, »

Jena Malone Joins Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

17 October 2014 6:28 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | 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, »

The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Movies: 30-21

30. No Country for Old Men (2007)

Scene: Coin Flip

Video: http://youtu.be/0iAezyDzj0M

There was a brief period of time from 2006-2009 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made some more daring, but wholly deserved choices for Best Picture. It began in 2006, when Martin Scorsese finally won for The Departed which, while not his best and not nearly as dark as, say, Taxi Driver or Raging Bull, still leaned that direction. Three years later, they handed the Oscar to The Hurt Locker over the blockbuster Avatar, rewarding quality over audience love. But in between the two it was given to No Country for Old Men, an incredibly dark neo-Western based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. It’s still one of the Coen Brothers’ best films, an incredible cat-and-mouse journey through West Texas in the 1980′s. The film stars Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, »

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. »

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, »

So there's a new rumor about 'Batman v Superman'...

17 October 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a long title for a movie. But given how many superheroes are definitely or probably showing up in the 2016 superhero film, a more accurate title would probably be Batman v Superman v Wonder Woman v Cyborg v an Aquaman cameo v The Flash probably. Warner Bros. has not been shy about promoting their incipient DC Cinematic Universe, and so at this point we should not be surprised by any rumors about a new beloved DC icon joining the film. Nevertheless, this local news report about the Batman v Superman film shoot does come with an interesting wrinkle. »

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?
