Batman V Superman Movie Rumors: Robin Will Be A Girl?

Jena Malone May Play the Carrie Kelley Robin from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns(PCM) Will Batman’s Robin be a girl? Director Zach Snyder is on the record that he’s modeling a good bit of the Batman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice after the fan favorite 1986 Frank Miller Batman story The Dark Knight Returns, in which Batman begrudgingly takes on another Robin. It just so happens Robin is a girl.

Some would argue it’s a bad idea to go with a girl Robin. However if you’ve read the 1986 masterpiece by Frank Miller, you’d know it was an excellent decision.

If you don’t have time to read the story, be sure to rent (better yet own) the DC animated two parter released in 2013, The Dark Knight Returns. It stays faithful to the Frank Miller original and is considered by many to be one of the greatest Batman books to date.

Will it be the Carrie Kelley of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and if so, is this the face of Robin?

If so, the question is will this Robin take on the role of Frank Miller’s Robin in The Dark Knight Returns?

Keep in mind, this is currently only credible to the level of rumor.  Remember in 2011, some sites were boasting that Justin Bieber had landed the role as Robin in the third installment of Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.

Justin Bieber wanted to be Robin.

Thankfully that was a rumor. Of course, Beiber does strike a good resemblance.

Regardless of if this rumor is true, should the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice even have a Robin?  While the point of Batman’s career timeline does suit a Carrie Kelley Robin, would the story be overloaded with characters?

Warner Bros. is taking a different approach in catching up with Marvel by getting right to the Justice League, instead of many solo films then an ensemble like Avengers, but there was a reason for the solo films. It wasn’t simply origin, it was to allow us to learn the characters, their flaws and positive points that gave us cause to be invested in a team up.

DC may be moving too fast in an effort to catch up. Until we see it on the big screen all this advanced information does make for great speculation.

Virgin America Pokes Fun At Long Tedious Flights With New Ad Campaign

Virgin-America1

(PCM) Nearly all of us at one point or another have had to deal with a long and tedious flight, especially one that is headed cross-country. You are dealing with issues such as screaming children, lack of food, zero leg room and of course obnoxious seatmates.

Virgin America has decided to poke a little fun, as well as, make a statement about just how long and boring cross-country travel can become with their new ad campaign. The campaign also reminds individuals that there is indeed a better way to fly!

The new ad campaign features an over five hour long video that shows us the pains associated with flying cross-country on the humorusly titled “BLAH Airlines” through the eyes of a mannequin who is stuck on the flight.

Adweek recently featured the campaign and obviously the mannequins represent actual passengers who are often time forced to suffer on these long and grueling flights. The point of the lengthy ad is to bore individuals into flying with Virgin America to avoid the “BLAH Airlines”.

According to Virgin themselves, “Just trying to watch the video is downright painful—and that’s the point. If you wouldn’t sit through the entire film, why would you pay money to experience it in real life?” We can’t see anyone actually sitting down to watch the entire five hour and forty-six minute ad. If you would like to give it a shot, the entire five plus hour ad can be viewed below:

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Turnip Video Goes Viral

(PCM) A brief Vine video posted from The White House account of First Lady Michelle Obama dancing with a turnip has gone viral.

The silly video clip was posted by the First Lady as a response to a query from Barack Obama impersonator Iman Crosson, who posted a Vine asking Michelle Obama “how many calories do you burn every time you ‘turn up’?

The Vine was posted during a White House Q&A session with the First Lady. As we all know Mrs. Obama is a strong advocate for healthy eating habits, especially when it comes to children.

She was quick to post a reply that featured her dancing with a turnip to a clip of the hit DJ Snake and Lil Jon song “Turn Down For What” … it was absolutely hilarious!
