Zack Snyder ruins everything, so not only did he cast a spastic AV nerd as one of the greatest villains of all time in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, he’s also adding Robin.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will reportedly feature a female Robin, with actress Jena Malone rumored to be playing Carrie Kelly, according to a local news station in Detroit. WILX-10 News station reporter Kirk Montgomery spoke with one of the extras at Michigan State University, where a scene involving Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) was being filmed this week. “I’ve also learned that the character of Robin is now female,” he said alluding to the film’s top secret script. Warner Bros. declined to comment. Malone, who appeared in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” has been seen on the WB set and recent movie premieres sporting a new red hairdo.
This movie is supposedly heavily influenced by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, and in that, Robin is apparently a ginger named “Carrie”. Unsure if her getting her first period or going to the prom will be a plot point or not, but do we really need a Robin? I don’t even care that Robin is a girl, because Robin is a chick’s name anyway and Robin wears booty shorts and a tiny cape, but why am I even getting upset over this? I feel like I typed too much about this.
