In its attempts to move as far away from the hit Chris Nolan interpretation as possible, the new Batman reboot has made another unusual casting choice.
Joining Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenburg and Henry Cavill will be none other than Jena Malone, who has been cast in the usual male role of Batman's sidekick Robin.
Jena, who plays Johanna Mason in the blockbuster Hunger Games movies, gave fans a hint of her upcoming role when she posted a picture of her hair dyed flaming red. She didn't give the secret away though, just commenting: “Drastic times call for drastic measures.”
Will this sideways move pay off?
Drastic times call for drastic measures.
