Batman V. Superman: Two Casting Rumours/Gotham - Season 2 Promo Pictures

Take both with a pinch of salt as for obvious reasons neither have been exactly confirmed in relation to Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

We know that Robin somehow factors in the movie due to a certain moment we saw recently in the Comic-Con trailer but now it's currently rumoured that Zack Snyder's son, Eli might be playing the tragically killed off Boy Wonder and all because of an Instagram picture with the caption 'Boy Wonder'. It wouldn't be the first time that Eli has appeared in his father's work having made appearances in both 300 and Sucker Punch and it has yet to be denied as well. For the moment, I'm certainly not ruling it out. If it's true, then Jason Todd's death will get a live action depiction on the big screen.

Also remember when Jena Malone's casting was announced and we all possibly thought that she might be the first onscreen version of Carrie Kelly's Robin? Well, the latest rumours now is that Malone might possibly be playing Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle instead. If true, this would be the third time the character was depicted onscreen, given that we've had Yvonne Craig in Batman 66 and Alicia Silverstone in Batman & Robin. Given that we're getting an older version of Batman, it's likely (if true) that it might be the Oracle version of Barbara.

Meanwhile Gotham are pushing their promotional campaign for the second season. The latest posters are definitely geared towards the 'Rise of the Villains' arc this year, along with elevated regulars Morena Baccarin (Leslie), James Frain (Theo) and Jessica Lucas (Tabitha/Tigress) also featured in the pictures. In fact the recent trailers themselves have been heavily pushing that arc and it certain does look very exciting.

More Details:

Gotham's second season airs Mondays 8pm from September 21st on FOX. Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice is in cinemas from March 25th 2015.
