While the “leaked” script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice said that the next Robin will be a girl, now we have more clues that this will actually happen!
Actress Jena Malone (Sucker Punch, The Hunger Games) has been spotted on the set, together with Zack Snyder. While it can be said that these two are just friends after working on a movie, Jena also posted a picture on her Instagram (with the caption: "drastic times call for drastic measures"):
And, for us at least, this looks like she is making herself the female robin (known as Carrie Kelley). Given the fact that a great inspiration for [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) will be taken from The Dark Knight Returns, things really add up. We already know that Ben Affleck’s Batman will be an older and wiser one, there were also hints that he will have sort of a shrine dedicated to Jason Todd (the dead Robin), and we don’t know what his relationship with Dick Grayson is right now.
Furthermore, this Robin will have a somewhat similar origin story with that of the Batman, since she makes her own costume and goes on to search the Dark Knight all by herself.
But what do you think?
