A report from a local news affiliate in Lansing, Michigan where Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been filming, dropped a couple spoilers and a $5M lawsuit. The extra who came forward didn't say much, but is now facing the wrath of Warner Bros for breaking his NDA, though the fallout gave us some casting rumors.
Neither are verified.
Jena Malone as RobinThe intrepid reporter from WILX broke the news that Jena Malone from Hunger Games: Catching Fire fame is playing a female adaptation of "Boy" Wonder, Robin. There have been two popular female incarnations of The Dark Knight's side-kick in the comics, red-headed teen Carrie Kelley, and former vigilante Stephanie Brown.
The evidence for Malone's casting seems largely that she was spotted on set back in July, and was in Snyder's pervious film Sucker Punch.
Oh, she also dyed her hair:
It's red! Must be Carrie Kelley.
Callan Mulvey as The JokerThis rumor is straight from TMZ, and is based solely on the fact that he's in the movie as an undisclosed character, has a scar and is Australian (just like Heath Ledger!)

I only include the rumor here, because I would like Batman to have his most iconic villain to even things out with Superman's baddie, Lex Luthor.
