There was no official confirmation regarding what character the actress will be playing, although an East Lansing, Michigan news report revealed that the actress is playing Carrie Kelly, a.k.a. the female Robin. In a profile piece on the actress, The Daily Beast brings up the rumor that Jena Malone is playing Carrie Kelly, although the actress wouldn't confirm whether or not she is playing Carrie/Robin. While there is no direct quote from the actress, the site says, "her lips are sealed" when asked about the Carrie Kelly rumors.
