The German website for this movie is now up with a German Cinema release date slated for November 12th. Lionsgate has acquired its US/Canada and UK distribution rights with a plan for a Christmas 2015 theatrical release.

Then, I posted part 2 of this when it aired back-to-back on Bravo and had first posted about this last May 24th, when it aired twice in a row on Oxygen.

Image
As I previously posted here last year (October 2014), Jena Malonewas rumored to be appearing, possibly in a cameo, for a mystery role inZack Snyder's (director of her Sucker Punch film) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Ben Affleck) film, which will be opening in US Theaters nationwide early next year, March 25th, 2016.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Jena was, indeed, in Batman V Superman, but it’s unknown whether she’s playing a female Robin or a different character. Malone has been seen on set last summer, but the visit was originally attributed to visiting her Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder. Then, two weeks later, Jenaposted a photo on her Instagram of her hair newly dyed red, a color similar to Carrie Kelley’s, the female Robin from The Dark Knight Returns.

Now, various rumors and media reports says Jena is playing the following role for BvS (watch the film's Comic-Con trailer below!)...
