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.

(PCM) It has been revealed that both the FBI and Apple are diving in to investigate the gigantic hack that allowed hundreds of nude celebrity photos to be leaked onto the internet over the weekend.

The hack is thought to have come from access to the various celebrities through their iCloud accounts and many are blaming a flaw in Apple’s “Find My Phone” app as the entry point for the hacker(s) to gain access to the private iCloud accounts.

A spokesperson for the FBI says “The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter. Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time”.

Jennifer Lawrence’s publicist has released comments saying that the authorities have been notified about the incident and they plan to prosecute anyone who posts the stole photos of Jennifer Lawrence. Model Kate Upton’s attorney also commented on the incident saying that it was an outrageous violation of her privacy and they plan to pursue anyone who is duplicating the illegally obtained images to the fullest extent of the law.

As quick as the photos are being shut down on various social media channels, they are popping right back up again in another place. It has almost been like a game of cat and mouse as authorities try to track down the culprits and also discover the origin of the hack.dunstMajority of the over 100 celebrities affected have claimed that the photos are indeed authentic, while a few others such as Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice are claiming they are fake or have been tampered with in Photoshop.

Gary Oldman Questions the Hypocrisy of Bill Maher and Jon Stewart

(PCM) Celebrated and loved actor Gary Oldman is about to become cannon fodder for night time cable show hosts, Bill Maher (Real Time – HBO) and Jon Stewart (The Daily Show – Comedy Central). Gary Oldman sees a politically correct agenda that thrives on unchecked double standards. In a current Playboy interview, Oldman voices his opinion towards what he sees as biased celebrity talent who use their notoriety and shows as platforms to attack anyone in the public eye that do not share their ideals.

Media will claim Gary Oldman ‘rails’, but in context of the interview in Playboy, he responds casually.

Gary-Oldman as Norman-Stansfield in Leon The Professional

“Bring me everyone!”

Oldman has starred in many films since the early 1980’s from Sid and Nancy to Leon the Professional, True Romance, and franchises The Dark Knight Trilogy, Harry Potter and a host of other notable films building a name as the true character actor. Despite his outrageous range Oldman comes through to both professionals and the public as real and accessible. For him to speak out against such powerful celebrities is apparent doom.

Why is Gary Oldman doomed?

Because he takes on the politically incorrect stance of defending the likes of Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin while in same breath accuses Bill Maher and Jon Stewart of hypocrisy.

What will be missed in the Playboy interview is Oldman’s true character, that of a humble man and dedicated parent. Answering every question with humility, he practically condemns most of his work over his career and calls it ‘a job’, announcing he forgets that he’s an actor until he’s reminded. To this end Oldman’s opinion becomes worthwhile even if you don’t agree with him.

Oldman’s take on legalized marijuana? “It’s silly to me. I’m not for it. Drugs were never my bag. I tried it once and it wasn’t for me.” And with this quote, Gary will most likely lose the respect of half his audience. He’s now an old head.

Doesn’t Gary Oldman know you can’t be this honest in an interview?

Never mind that Oldman struggled with alcohol addiction in his life and has overcome it. Oldman justifies his position on Pot, “To me the problem is driving. People in Colorado are driving high and getting DUI’s. That’s why I worry about it.” It’s these types of additional quotes that will be left out when Maher and Stewart get a hold of him.

The ideal actor to play Commissioner Gordon

What are the offensive quotes that will make Gary Oldman the target of Bill Maher and Jon Stewart? What leads up to it is his defense of Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin.

On Mel, “I don’t know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all f—ing hypocrites. That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word ni–er or that f—ing Jew? I’m being brutally honest here. It’s the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy. Or maybe I should strike that and say “the N word” and “the F word,” though there are two F words now.”

Playboy questioned: “The three letter one?”

Oldman, ” Alec calling someone a F-A-G in the street while he’s pissed off coming out of his building because they won’t leave him alone. I don’t blame him. So they persecute.”

Then Oldman speaks the words that will truly draw condemnation. “Mel Gibson is in a town that’s run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he’s actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him — and doesn’t need to feed him anymore because he’s got enough dough. He’s like an outcast, a leper, you know? But some Jewish guy in his office somewhere hasn’t turned and said, “That fucking kraut” or “Fuck those Germans,” whatever it is? We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That’s what gets me. It’s just the sheer hypocrisy of everyone, that we all stand on this thing going, “Isn’t that shocking?”

Playboy then asked Oldman if he was a bigot.

“No but I’m defending all the wrong people. I’m saying Mel’s right, Alec’s a good guy. So how do I come across? Angry? It’s dishonesty that frustrates me most. I can’t bear double standards. It gets under my skin more than anything.”

Oldman uses a safe celebrity politician to make his point. “If I called Nancy Pelosi a c–t—and I’ll go one better, a f—ing useless c–t—I can’t really say that. But Bill Maher and Jon Stewart can, and nobody’s going to stop them from working because of it. Bill Maher could call someone a fag and get away with it. He said to Seth MacFarlane this year, “I thought you were going to do the Oscars again. Instead they got a lesbian.” He can say something like that. Is that more or less offensive than Alec Baldwin saying to someone in the street, “You fag”? I don’t get it.”

Right or wrong give him credit for saying things many believe but can’t say due to rampant political correctness. Unfortunately his words which offer solace to the likes of Hollywood untouchables like Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin are sure to get more than just casual zingers from Jon Stewart and Bill Maher.

The question is once they go on attack, will Gary Oldman defend himself and will anyone come to his defense?

Oldman may be one more cranky old has been Hollywood celebrity soon, if he is then better you be the judge. Don’t let Maher or Stewart decide for you. Read the article yourself.
