Ender-Petra

Thanks to a slideshow put up by Entertainment Weekly for their Comic Con 2013 preview, we’ve got a new look at Ender (Asa Butterfield, right) and Petra (Hailee Steinfeld, left) holding hands as they’re about to jump into the Battle Room.

The photo gives us a better look at the flash guns, as can be seen on Petra’s hip, but it also brings up an inevitable question: are Petra and Ender a “thing” in the movie?

In the book, Petra acts more like a tough older sister to Ender when he first joins Salamander Army under Bonzo. But Ender was around 7 or 8 at that point while in the book he’ll be around 10 or 11. When we first saw Petra in the trailer, she was giving a sly smile to Ender.

Now in this photo we see them holding hands as they get ready to go into the Battle Room, something that Ender has presumably already done himself because we’ve seen him in the Battle Room wearing launchy colors. So what do you guys think? Do Petra and Ender have a different type of connection in the film? And if they did, how do you feel about it?

    I really think we’re all having knee jerk reactions to perfectly innocent images. The “sly glance” of hers in trailer always brings to my mind her “Well, little boy…” smirky attitude…and as far as them *GASP* HOLDING HANDS!! It just looks to me like they’re getting ready to do some sort of joint jump out the Battle Room gate. (She *does* give him training in sharp shooting, after all, in the book, so I suppose there’ll be something along those lines in the film.) Bottom line for me is, don’t panic. The movie is innocent until proven guilty. ‘Nuff said.

      Haha, I’m not worried, just giving people something to talk about. I know it’s a concern for people and what we’ve seen could be looked at as pointing us in that direction!

    Given that they are teenagers in this one, it wouldn’t be totally weird. I mean, according to the Merlin DVD commentary, Asa Butterfield was walking around on set with a Maxim magazine with Megan Fox on the cover when he was, like, 12. I’ve searched my feelings (Jedi style), and you know what? I wouldn’t actually mind if Ender and Petra WERE a thing. Hmm.

      Maxim magazine?? Yuck. :-( I hate it when my images of intelligent young men are shattered by them being…erm…normal boys. *Sigh* And here I foolishly imagined Asa just might possibly have more class than that…oh well. Just ignore me while I go rearrange my utopia… :-P

    nah, this picture isnt something romantic, im pretty sure petra is helping ender jump in and show how to use the battleroom, and then ender is going to struggle so he holds her while floating. and her only romantic interest is either dink or bean i think
