Movie Casting News: Jena Malone cast for a mystery role in Zack Snyder's 'Batman v Superman' film?

This isn't by any means confirmed just yet by Warner Bros. Pictures, but since yesterday Jena Malone has been all over the CBM news and today has been trending on facebook and various social media of her possible casting (with so many multiple sources reporting and some confirming...) for a mystery role in Zack Snyder's (director of her Sucker Punch film) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Ben Affleck) film, which is currently filming right now.

Now, neither Jena nor Snyder have confirmed this, but speculations have been floating around of her BVS casting when she recently dyed her hair red and posted the following photo two weeks ago on her Instagram account hinting to her casting in possible female Robin role with a quote from The Dark Knight Returns (which BVS' Batman character was inspired from):

Weekend Box Office: GONE GIRL Defeats DRACULA UNTOLD for Second First Place Finish

Film Review: Gone Girl

I saw David Fincher's Gone Girl starring Rosamund PikeandBen Affleck last Friday, on its opening day, and I just posted my full Film Review: Gone Girl in my other blog, In The Mood For Movies, where I post my general movie reviews (of the movies I've seen in theaters). This was one of my most anticipated films to see this year. It was worth the wait and worth watching too (at least for me). I highly recommend you see this especially if you want to see Rosamund in her first lead starring role in the current #1 movie in America right now. You will be mind-blown by her amazing performance as Amy Dunne in this movie. Go see it, if you can or get a chance, this weekend! It looks like it's going to top this weekend's domestic Box Office chart again for the second weekend in a row (but, of course, we'll find out tomorrow afternoon when BO results is released).
