Despite the fact the film is still close to a year and a half away from release, Batman fan site Batman-on-Film is reporting that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is ready to go, and that we’ll be seeing it before the curtain falls on 2014.
According to the site: “The first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, of course). I have no idea to which specific film it may be “attached,” but New Line’s (which is Warner Bros.’ sister company) The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is being released on December 17, 2014. By the way Batman fans, I’ve heard that this teaser is ‘Batman heavy.'”
Personally, I’d be »

Although we're still not certain who she's playing, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder for a mystery role in the much-anticipated comic book showdown Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although it's far from confirmed, rumors have suggested that she might playing the Carrie Kelley Robin, Batman's sidekick from Frank Miller's epochal The Dark Knight Returns! We're sharing our thoughts on this week's Most Craved along with discussion about Eli Roth's just-announced plans to remake Cabin Fever with the same screenplay and the tremendous amount of nostalgia-driven franchises headed to television ("Full House," "Big," "Rush Hour," "Bachelor Party," and "Uncle Buck" just to name a few). »
Like most superhero films, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has dealt with its fair share of rumors and plot leaks, but yesterday things got taken up a notch. An anonymous extra spoke with Michigan.s Wilx (risking a $5 million lawsuit) and revealed several spoilers, one of which was that there will be a female Robin in the film. Combined with the rumors that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actress Jena Malone is involved with the production, is it possible that these two items are connected? It.s a cop-out answer, but yes and no. The Hollywood Reporter is confirming that Malone is in Batman V Superman, but it.s unknown whether she.s playing a female Robin or a different character. Malone has been seen on set for months now, but these visits were originally attributed to visiting Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder. Then two weeks ago, Malone posted »

Jena Malone, who starred in Zack Snyder's 2011 "Sucker Punch" action film has been spotted on the set of Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" sporting a new red hairdo. Her role has been kept a secret by Warner Bros, but an extra from the movie just revealed something that's connected to Malone. The extra, who attends Michigan State University, told a Wilx-10 News station reporter: "I've also learned that the character of Robin is now female." Could Malone be playing Carrie Kelly, a female Robin? It sure seems like it. Meanwhile, the extra is facing a fine of $5 million for breaking the non-disclosure agreement he signed with Warner Bros. "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is set to hit theaters on March 25th, 2016. »
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, »

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. »

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. »

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, »

Back in August, The Hunger Games' Jena Malone was spotted on the Michigan set of her Sucker Punch director's upcoming comic book showdown, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Malone will, indeed, appear in the film, although the precise role is anybody's guess. That hasn't stopped the speculation, however, with the most recent rumor being that Malone will play a female version of Robin. While that may end up being the case, she might also be playing someone else altogether. Read on to find out exactly what we know. »
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.

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…

When Jena Maone was seen visiting the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice recently, it didn't take long for sites to start speculating that she would be playing the female Robin in the Man of Steel follow-up (especially as the Sucker Punch actress dyed her hair red, just like Carrie Kelley). This time, just about every site - including Variety - have picked up on a report from Wilx-10 News in which they claim to have been told by one extra that, "the character of Robin is now female". This is the same extra who revealed those details about a scene featuring Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor. The site reached out to Warner Bros., but they have declined to comment. It all seems a bit silly, but you can't deny that she looks the part and it would make sense considering that fact that director Zack Snyder is »
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.

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. »

With an announcement that rattled the World Wide Web, DC unveiled an ambitious slate of superhero movies that will run through 2020. Among them, they officially announced a Wonder Woman movie. We know Fast and Furious 6's Gal Gadot will play this woman warrior, but unknown is who DC will entrust to bring her story to the big screen in her spin-off from Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Well, we've got some suggestions. I'm among those who worry that Wonder Woman is being introduced to DC's film universe by the guy who brought us Sucker Punch. DC has a unique opportunity to define a new chapter of Wonder Woman's legacy with this 2017 movie. With the right director, DC could craft something spectacular and iconic with Wonder Woman. But who'd be up to the task of taking on a superheroine movie that even Joss Whedon found tricky? »
Fox’s new show Gotham takes place in a miserable world where no one has ever heard of Batman, which makes Gotham somewhat less realistic than Game of Thrones. Two years after the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trifecta, Bruce Wayne’s alter ego is everywhere. In video games, there’s the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight, the final act of an acclaimed trilogy. In comic books, DC has eight monthly series with the word Batman in the title, and that doesn’t include sundry spinoff titles like Batwoman and Batgirl and Nightwing and Batwing. Hell, even the »

J.J. Abrams has lens flare and Zack Snyder has slow-motion! Despite some poking fun at both of these filmmakers for their visual style, this supercut of the latter's slow-motion scenes from movies like Sucker Punch, 300, Watchmen, and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole looks stunning when viewed to the hypnotising voice of Emily Browning as she performs "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This". Much to the surprise of some, Man of Steel didn't feature much in the way of slow motion, so it doesn't feature in the video above (which seems a shame). Will we see these scenes return in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? We'll have to wait and see! »
Sometimes a film is centered around a strong female lead. Other times it is centered around a cheap fabrication of that idea. Over the past 10 years we’ve seen so many action films abuse the idea of a “strong female lead.” The Resident Evil series, the Underworld series, Ultraviolet (another Millla Jovovich vehicle), and the most guilty film of them all, Sucker Punch. Granted, Everly isn’t nearly as guilty as some of the aforementioned films, but it does perpetuate the same stereotype. One where the only way for us to sympathize with our vengeful heroine is to first present her as a flawed and broken woman and then show her overcome personal and physical obstacles.

Zack Snyder is a pretty divisive guy. Some believe him to be singular filmmaker with an eye for visual flair, but to others he’s simply a hack who lacks all subtlety and simply regurgitates the same tricks over and over again. As we wait another year and a half to see how “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” turns out, a new video has arrived online that catalogues what may be the defining hallmark of Snyder’s visual style: his use of slow-motion. Edited by Jaume R. Lloret, the three-minute long montage pulls together all the slow-motion shots from four of Snyder’s films: “300,” “Watchmen,” “Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” and “Sucker Punch.” The video has no sound effects and no dialogue, just accompaniment from Emily Browning’s cover of The Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” from “Sucker Punch.” Seeing all of Snyder »
