Comic book writer, artist and director Frank Miller has said that he’d like to see Carrie Kelley in a DC movie in a recent interview with ComicBook.com on the red carpet premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“Oh, Carrie Kelley, if they do it, I’ll be very jealous of any appearance of Carrie Kelley,” Miller said. “Carrie Kelley would be the big one. I love my little Joker robots, and lots of other characters like his goofy sidekick, but Carrie Kelley is the one that broke my heart.”
Another of Miller’s creations is Elektra, Daredevil’s common partner and lover. The character was recently brought to life in season 2 of Netflix’s Daredevil starring Charlie Cox as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, Elodie Yung as the red masked Elektra and Jon Bernthal as the unforgiving Punisher. When talking about the character’s appearance in the series 3 months prior to the season’s release, Miller boasted a slightly different opinion by saying:
“They can do whatever they want, that is not her.”
He went on in the most recent interview to differentiate his work-fore-hire characters such as Carrie Kelley and Elektra and the work that he owns such as Sin City.
“I’ve had a good long time doing work that I’ve made up out of whole cloth,” Miller said. “I own ‘Sin City,’ if there’s a ‘Sin City’ movie, I’ll make it. With Batman, I’m contributing to a mythos that’s been around for a long time. I’ve had a great time contributing to it, I will gladly contribute to it again, and I want to see what other people do. It’s a big party, we can all join in.”
For those not in the know, Carrie Kelly is the female Robin who appears in The Dark Knight Returns universe and goes on to become Catgirl in The Dark Knight Strikes Again. The character took over the mantle from Jason Todd and made her first appearance in 1986. Now, Kelly is a major part of the Dark Knight III: The Master Race by Miller, Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert and Janson.
Interestingly, there were rumours that the character would be making an appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman but this rumour was soon quashed.
Miller is currently hard to work on the fourth addition to his Batman: The Dark Knight series.
