In the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Jena Malone is slated to play the female Robin. Now there was Dick Grayson, Jason Tood, Tim Drake, and Damien Wayne that was Robin. Oh yeah. there was Carrie Kelly from the Frank Miller classic The Dark Knight Returns. There was also Stephnie Brown, Tim Drake’s girlfriend, and she was a female Robin, but Carrie was the only one that was involved in a Batman/Superman knock down, drag out.
Could it be? The Dark Knight Returns was an epic four issue series in 1986. It turned me around on that ’60s mod Bruce. That show was a comedy in my eyes, and I thought of Batman as being that way as well. Frank portrayed Bruce in a more devastating light. I became a fan of the Caped Crusader.
If hey are making a movie out of just a piece of that story, DC may catch u to Marvel in cinema (I personally liked it, but Green Lantern didn’t blow up the box office).
Marvel did it with Days of Future Past, so DC can do it as well. Dark Knight Returns will be 29 years old in 2015, but as Marvel realized, a great story is timeless. Please, for me, and all the rest of us comic geeks, make this happen.
