The film has reportedly employed hundreds of Detroit locals as extras, and despite iron-clad confidentiality agreements, the sheer number number of people on set has make it difficult to keep things under wraps.

First, amateur footage of the Batmobile hit Instagram, and now an extra speaking on condition of anonymity has revealed a bombshell regarding the flick's casting and storyline. Obviously, spoilers lie ahead:

According to the source, Robin makes an appearance in the film and the Boy Wonder is played by a woman. Some fans have assumed that this tidbit puts an end to speculation as to what part actress Jena Malone will be playing in the film.

After news broke that Robin Williams had committed suicide back in August, fans mourned the loss of one of the sharpest comedic minds the world has ever known.

While his existing body of work will be enjoyed for generations to come, it seemed impossible to imagine that someone so lively and animated as Williams would never again grace the screen with his distinct blend of manic energy and real human emotion.

Fortunately, before he died, Williams wrapped filming on a dark holiday comedy titled Merry Friggin' Christmas. The trailer for Robin's final film was released online earlier today.

In the film, Williams plays the cantankerous father of Joel McHale and Clark Duke who must make an emergency last-minute road trip with his adult children in order to "save Christmas."

Na na na na na, Fatman! Yes, we've all seen the first onset photos of Ben Affleck as Batman, and he certainly seems to be in pretty solid shape. But sources tell the National Enquirer that at one point, the Oscar winner was one bloated Bruce Wayne.

In fact, producers of Batman v Superman were reportedly forced to hire a body double to fill in as the Caped Crusader.

Ben Affleck Looks Rough

"The star showed up looking so flabby for a shirtless boxing scene that producers immediately hired a ripped body double," one "insider" claims.

"They ended up using him so frequently as the Batman stand-in that snarky crew members sneakily started calling Ben 'Fatman' behind his back."

"It's official. I'm making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women,” Feig Tweeted on Wednesday. "That's who I'm gonna call."

Even though Sex and the City 2 was a commercial and critical failure by pretty much any standard, there are still some diehard Carrie-philes out there clamoring for an update on the pun-happy Mrs. Big.

And based on Sarah Jessica Parker's latest Instagram post, it seems they may soon get their wish:

Sarah Jessica Parker: Sex and the Sity 3 Photo?

"It was take your @sjpcollection shoes to work day," Parker captioned the above photo. "#longdayforcarrie #whewwthosesteps #runninginheels #taxi!"

Parker also posted a photo of the stoop in front of Carrie's apartment with a caption reading, "That's a wrap ladies."

Not exactly hard evidence, but recent comments made by Jennifer Hudson - who played Carrie's assistant in the first film - have further stoked the flames of fan enthusiasm:

Every generation has its own conception of who Batman really is. Yes, we know he's Bruce Wayne; we're talking actors here:

For some it will always be a growling Christian Bale.

Others still nostalgically reflect on Val Kilmer's single outing as the Caped Crusaders. And some unfortunate souls came of age during a time when George Clooney protected Gotham. (Nothing against Cloon, but man did that movie suck.)

Of course, there are those of us lucky enough to remember a time when Michael Keaton was the first name in Dark Knights, while a new generation will forever think of Ben Affleck as Batman.

Affleck's been on a hot streak lately, and he'll probably do a fine job in the iconic role, but Keaton just wants the world to know one thing before he retreats back to his underground lair: playing Batman wasn't easy in his day, punk!

Robert Downey, Jr. appeared on Ellen today and reluctantly confirmed a rumor that's been floating around for months: Iron Man 4 is a go.

Downey stated that negotiations are still taking place, but we doubt Tony Stark would guarantee the thing on live TV unless it was more or less a done deal.

It shouldn't be a surprise given the blockbuster success of Iron Man 3, but there were rumblings that Downey was eager to hang up his rocket suit. 

With Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters in May of 2015, IM4 will mark the seventh time Downey's rocked the manicured Stark goatee.
