The comic superheroes from both DC Extended Universe (Superman, Green Lantern, Batman and Robin), and Marvel Cinematic Universe (Spiderman, the Hulk, Avengers, X-men, and Ant-Man), have invaded the big screens worldwide many times over.

The two realms are still on the verge of coming up with a lot of high-quality films that are expected to make people utter ohs and ahs, projected to funnel in immense amount of profits and will provide the stars the popularity and exposure that they have been yearning for.

One of the much-awaited comic adaptations is the untitled Batman movie by Ben Affleck and fans are eagerly waiting if Robin would make its appearance on the film. The fans are also intrigued on what costume Robin would wear if in case the sidekick will be taking part in the movie.

As per report issued by CinemaBlend.com, Joe Manganiello will be taking the role of Deathstroke and had just posted a photo in the photo-sharing site Instagram which provides hints on Batman's second fiddle.  

Manganiello who also starred in Spider-Man trilogy and played an assortment of roles in popular television shows such as How I Met Your Mother, ER, and One Tree Hill, also provided clues that Anna Kendrick might be playing the role of Carrie Kelly which happens to be a version of Robin in the DC Extended Universe.

For folks who are not familiar with Kelly, she happens to be one of the most recent partners of The Dark Knight. Her story in the realms of DC started when she was saved by the Caped Crusader at the age of 13. She grew up admiring Batman and took her as an apprentice. Kelly eventually made her presence felt and was well-loved for her cleverness and determination.

Anna Kendrick exemplifies the attributes of Kelly and she is indeed a perfect fit for the role. The exact timeline of when the movie will materialize is still not clear but one thing is certain, the movie is cinched to become a hit since Affleck is bringing in a star-studded cast.

Not long time ago, Kendrick was rumored to play to role of Marvel juvenile hero Squirrel Girl, but it seems that DC was lucky to tab the versatile actress.
