Editor’s note: I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice spoilers. So if you don’t want to know anything about what may or may not be in the film, stop reading now.
It looks like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be going full The Dark Knight Returns after all. A local Michigan news station, WILX News 10, broke the news that the Zack Snyder-directed film will feature Jena Malone as Carrie Kelley, who will indeed be playing Robin. The character made her debut as Robin, the Girl Wonder in Frank Miller’s seminal The Dark Knight Returns, which you should really go out and read at your earliest convenience. Speculation ran wild when the Hunger Games actress posted a photo to her Instagram with the same signature red hair as the character, and now it seems that speculation was warranted after all.
Drastic times call for drastic measures.
The story also revealed that while filming at Michigan State University, a massive fight scene between Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) was underway. What were they fighting about? Who’s the handsomer billionaire?
Man alive — this being leaked aside, this just seems like Warner Bros./DC’s week, huh? Earlier this week, they confirmed a slate of superhero films including Suicide Squad, Aquaman, Justice League, Wonder Woman, and more that’ll take us through 2020. Now to continue the long, arduous wait until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rolls out on March 25, 2016.
