Everybody knows that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will draw heavily from The Dark Knight Returns. A couple or more days ago, Jena Malone (Sucker Punch) was spotted on the set, with her hair dyed orangish. So, obviously, the rumor started to spread that she will play Carrie Kelley, also known as Robin.
Now all the sites are reporting that she has already signed for a part in the film, although it isn’t known for what role. But the safest bet is that she will be the first female Robin to be seen on the silver screen.
Local news station WILX-10 spoke with an extra from the film, who said it will feature a female Robin. As Variety notes, Malone "has been seen on the WB set and at recent movie premieres sporting a new red hairdo." According to The Hollywood Reporter, Malone is playing a ''mystery role" in the film.
