With filming already taking place in Michigan, we thought we knew all the important cast members set to star in the upcoming ‘Batman V Superman’ film. However, it looks like we were wrong, because it now looks like Jena Malone will be playing a key role in the movie.
According to a local news station in Michigan (WILX-10), the Hunger Games star will be playing a female Robin in the film. This according to one of the extras at Michigan State University, where a pivotal scene was being filmed involving the two stars of the movie, Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg.
And while nothing has been confirmed, Variety points out that Malone “has been seen on the WB set and at recent movie premieres sporting a new red hairdo.”
We can’t confirm that the actress will be playing a female version of Robin, but we are about 99% sure she will be in the film. The Hollywood Reporter claims multiple sources have confirmed that she does have a role in the film; however, the sources would not say which character she will be playing.
As we mentioned above, none of this has been confirmed. Warner Bros. declined to comment on the rumors, and Jena Malone is staying silent as well. It looks like we’ll just have to wait and see. We have a long way to go, folks. The film won’t even be released until March 26, 2016.
