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.
This morning, local Michigan news WILX10 posted the below video claiming that the Zack Snyder film will feature a female version of Robin. That certainly does coincide with Snyder’s Frank Miller-fueled approach to the material and it’s quite possible that we’ll be seeing some iteration of The Dark Knight Returns‘ Carrie Kelley on the big screen. Even if that’s the case, however, Malone isn’t necessarily going to be playing the part. Kelley was, after all, only 13 years old in The Dark Knight Returns.
Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Scoot McNairy, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
