Last fall, a rumor surfaced that Robin would be appearing in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in a way unlike any version of the Dark Knight’s sidekick we’ve seen on screen before. This incarnation of the character was rumored to be female. And there were even rumblings that Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch star Jena Malone was playing the character.
However, we’ve since seen that Robin is likely dead in Batman v. Superman, seemingly killed by The Joker in a quick shot glimpsed in the most recent trailer that debuted at Comic-Con. The suit the sidekick wore doesn’t look to belong to a female with the physique of Jena Malone, and is likely a young man played by the director’s son Eli Snyder.
So if Jena Malone isn’t playing Robin, then just who is her character? We may finally have an answer. Find out more about Jena Malone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice after the jump, but beware of potential spoilers! Read More »

In a new interview, production designer Patrick Tatopoulos talks about what makes this Batmobile special, how it’ll be introduced in the movie, and how a certain film that hasn’t even started shooting yet influenced its design.

Yesterday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press tour, Netflix presented a panel on Longmire, the series they rescued from A&E for a new season on the streaming service. After the panel I approached actor Bailey Chase for a further interview, and he gave me an exclusive story about his work on Batman v Superman.
More interesting, his comments shed a bit of light on one shot from the film that we’ve wondered about: the image of people on horseback seen in the Comic Con trailer. Read More »

When the latest trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was unleashed recently, many were blown away by the sight of Batman and Superman squaring off for the first time. But as we pointed out later, there are plenty of little things to notice that hint at what’s coming in the forthcoming big screen battle.
One of the more surprising reveals in the trailer was what seemed to be confirmation that Batman’s trusty sidekick Robin appears to be dead. The above shot from the trailer has a message, presumably from The Joker, written on Robin’s suit, which appears to be in a display case as a memorial to The Boy Wonder. But fans have been wondering if we’ll actually see Robin in action in some sort of flashback.
The answer appears to be yes, and a new rumor even tells us who might be wearing the suit in the flashback. Find out more about Robin in Batman v Superman after the jump, but beware of spoilers! Read More »
