Hunger Games star rumored to play Robin in "Batman v. Superman"

IMG_4911.JPG Jenna Malone, who stole every scene she was in with “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” is rumored to be playing Carrie Kelly in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” I can’t begin to tell you how glad I will be to stop writing out that title.

Continuing to show the influence of Frank Miller’s “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns,” the film will have Malone’s Kelly playing Robin, according to a Wilx-10 News reporter Kirk Montgomery.

Montgomery spoke with an extra at Michigan State where a scene is being shot and the extra said Robin will be a female in this outing.

Due to her prominent role in one of the most influential comic books of all time, Kelly has been a longtime fan favorite despite only appearing in four issues in a non-regular continuity book.

I loved Malone in “Catching Fire” and love the casting choice so I’m thrilled that she could be Robin longterm in this new DC movie universe. What do you think?
