The extra, who was involved in a scene with Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), revealed, “I’ve also learned that the character of Robin is now female,” according to HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site Variety.
Warner Bros’ declined to comment, but Jena has been seen on the WB set and recent movie premieres sporting a new red hairdo.
While this is super exciting news, the extra who spilled the beans faces a fine of $5 million after signing a non-disclosure agreement with Warner Bros. (Whoops!)
