Actress Jenna Malone has gone and dyed her hair red and the Internet is up in arms!
Fans are consumed with speculation if Jenna Malone will play Batman’s famous sidekick Carrie Kelly, aka Robin.
Malone has been seen numerous times near or on set of Dawn of Justice during filming:
If this is true, that could mean Batman’s origins are possibly based in the world of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, where Carrie Kelly’s character is featured. Also, Malone has worked with Snyder before on Sucker Punch, so if this is true, it would come as no surprise.
Malone is 29 years old, probably a decade older than Kelly in the comic, but come on look at that face. If you’ve seen Sucker Punch, you know Malone can pull it off.
Not every fan thinks this is a good idea.
Fanboys and purist are conducting business as usual by demanding that Tim Drake (Nightwing) be involved in Dawn of Justice, and fist pumping in anger that this casting wouldn’t be in line with what they are use to.
Then there is the question of who else is going to be featured in this film?! You have Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman. Lets not forget that the Flash and Green Lantern need to be cast. Now a rumor that Robin will be in this too…
Is this overkill? Does anyone really care at this point?
The film is slated to be released in 2016, so there is plenty of time for things to change…again. I think Malone would be a great addition, but I’m not holding my breath for anything involving this film. I will just wait til it hit theatres.
