Robin Is Female In Batman V. Superman, Details On Batman & Lex Luthor Fight Scene

A local news show in Michigan has persuaded an extra to break his contractually-mandated vow of silence and share some significant details about Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

An anonymous extra joined WILX News 10, claiming that the scene being shot at an Art Museum on Michigan State University campus will feature a physical altercation between Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor. They also say there will be fireworks, paparazzi and "heavy special effects." A military presence will be expected, according to the reporter because of the altercation between Waye and Luthor (so...probably more than just some pushing and shoving on the red carpet).

Most interestingly, though, Robin reportedly appears in the script...and is a female. This led the reporter to reiterate persistent rumors that The Hunger Games's Jena Malone could be playing Carrie Kelley in the film, the female Robin from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

While that's pretty clearly speculation, the fact that they've been told there's a female Robin in the script is telling -- and if it came from this same extra, it could imply a showdown between Batman, Robin, Lex Luthor and the military.

You can check out the report below.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will be in theaters March 25, 2016.

    Don't know what to believe.Why wouldn't the studio come out and announce that they have a female Robin in the movie with an actress attached to the role?Why keep that specific character role a secret?

    They've kept most of everything a secret, really. Much of what we know came through unofficial channels.

    That said, I'm skeptical that an extra would know this unless it was relevant to the scene he was in, so....

  2. So you believe them because Malone made a one day set visit and dyed her red? Right......

    And Malone has already DENIED her involvment in the movie.

    Many, many actors and actresses have been told to deny involvement in roles. Just look at Jason Mamoa. I wouldn't trust someone if they say they aren't in it if there is other evidence that they might be.

    Um....there is a HUGE amount of middle ground between Jason Momoa and Jena Malone. The Hollywood trades had been reporting Momoa was in BVS going as far back as December of last year. The trades then started pretty much confirming he was Aquaman this past June. Not a single reputable trade have reported ANYTHING on Malone being in this movie outside of shoddy blogs like Badass Digest and Latino Review.

    Same goes with Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
