Rumor has it that Jena Malone just might play Robin in the upcoming "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Local news station WILX-10 in Michigan spoke with an extra from the film, who said it will feature a female Robin. As Variety notes, Malone "has been seen on the WB set and at recent movie premieres sporting a new red hairdo." According to The Hollywood Reporter, Malone is definitely in the film, playing a "mystery role" in the film.

So, this is small leap ... the kind you take while wearing lycra and fighting the bad guys. Since "Batman V Superman" doesn't come out until March of 2016, there will likely be plenty more "alleged" and "reported" casting rumors before Malone's part can be confirmed. Either way, this does not smell like good news for all those Matt Damon memes.

HuffPost has reached out to both Warner Bros. and Jena Malone's representation for comment; this post will be updated if and when they respond.
