E! Online’s Marc Malkin caught up with Jena Malone on Thursday evening at celebrity photographer Jeff Vespa’s launch party for his new book “The Art of Discovery”. After Malone dyed her hair red and was confirmed to be a part of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, rumors began swirling that she’d be playing Carrie Kelley, the female Robin. Here’s the conversation that went down about that rumor:
“So, are you the new Robin?” I asked.
Malone didn’t even blink. She gave me a little wave and slid off to the bar.
While we shouldn’t read too much into her decision to ignore the question, the fact that she didn’t deny it is interesting. Actors frequently lie to the media to keep roles secret, as seen by Marion Cotillard back in the The Dark Knight Rises days. And let’s not forget about Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
Do you think Malone’s non-denial about playing Robin means anything, or are fans reading too much into it? Let me know in the comments below.
