Spoiler: Sources may have solved who Jena Malone plays in Batman V Superman

07.30.2015

After seeing the full trailer for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, there have been more questions than answers as to just what we can expect from the first event film of 2016. But, even with five minutes of new footage revealed, there are still some characters we have yet to see on screen. One actor we haven't heard much about in a while is Jena Malone.

Back in October, rumors had Malone playing Robin alongside Ben Affleck's Batman but there was never any confirmation. Since then, Malone has played coy and we have been left to theorize and dream cast who she could be in the movie. Now that appears to have been solved. Keep in mind that despite the words "confirmed" and "exclusive" being bandied about, this is far from the truth until Warner Bros tells us so.

Latino Review claims to have exclusively confirmed via three different sources who Malone is playing in the movie and it is none other than Barbara Gordon. Since we know that BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will focus on an older and grizzled Batman, Malone could be playing Batgirl or Barbara Gordon's later persona, Oracle.

Malone has just recently wrapped the final entry in THE HUNGER GAMES series and has a prior working relationship with BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE director Zack Snyder from their SUCKERPUNCH days. I cannot imagine Malone's part will be that significant in the film but will hopefully amount to more than just a cameo. If it turns out to be true, Malone could play a much bigger part in Ben Affleck's pending BATMAN solo film.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens March 25, 2016.

It would be cool if she was Barbra Gordon. But with the heavy DKR influence on this movie I'm still thinking the Carrie Kelly Robin.

That would be awesome if it is true. We've yet to see a good adaptation of Batman with the entire Bat-Family. This shared universe seems to be setting that up with a pretty good strategy, dump us into the middle of it all. It works because everyone already knows Batman and Robin (Grayson). In a solo flick they need to establish through exposition that Dick has grown up to be Nightwing. And I feel that Suicide Squad will establish that Joker was put in jail for murdering Jason Todd and
That would be awesome if it is true. We've yet to see a good adaptation of Batman with the entire Bat-Family.

In a solo flick they need to establish through exposition that Dick has grown up to be Nightwing. And I feel that Suicide Squad will establish that Joker was put in jail for murdering Jason Todd and perhaps crippling Barbara Gordon?

If that's true, a Batman solo movie would be perfect to set up for an Under the Red Hood storyline. With a sequel that focuses on Son of Batman. And then cap it off with either Batman RIP or Endgame. You can then recast Dick Grayson as Batman with Damian as his Robin, instead of rebooting the character. Spinoff Barbara Gordon into a solo Batgirl series. Lot of potential with this.

Always hated the Under The Red Hood story line. Really didn't want Jason Todd brought back. Same with Barry Allen. And Damien for that matter. However I would be so into doing in whatever way they could, some of Grant Morrison's Batman run. Loved RIP and would love to see the Batman of Zur-En_Arrh on the screen but I doubt they'd do it as I just don't think it would work for noncomic viewers.

I keep reading this as Jenna Maroney - although I do think Krakowski could be a good Catwoman for the Lego Batman movie ;)

Over 8 months away and everything is going to be spoiled. And yes, I have no self control whatsoever and will click on every single article until then.

She has the perfect look, attitude, and persona for Barbara Gordon/Batgirl or Oracle. After having Batman's backstory somewhat included and/or partially told in Batman vs Superman, it'll be a long, exciting wait to see what Affleck actually does with his own helmer Batman flick.

ummmm her attitude and persona as a person is nothing like Barbara Gordon/Batgirl. She does have the looks and the TALENT TO CAPTURE barbara's persona and attitude.

They better do a flashback scene with the Joker...

This rendition of the Joker will get some serious street cred in the cinematic universe if he murders Jason Todd on camera and then paralyzes Batgirl. Maybe even some scenes of him strutting Jim Gordon through a theme park would be nice too. And please don't let those rumors of the Joker really being Jason Todd be true...

Maybe she would be just Barbara Gordon first and Batgirl in the next movie.

Damn I was really hoping for Carrie Kelly being in this! But having Batgirl or Oracle would be just as awesome. But if they had both Babs and Carrie I would lose my fanboy mind.

There's almost no storyline involving Kelly other than The Dark Knight Return and Barbara Gordon has been an important part of the DC Universe for decades, both as Batgirl and Oracle. It would open so many more opportunities for WB if that was the case, including a future Birds of Prey movie.

The Killing Joke

I was hoping for Carrie Kelly :(
Now, what if she is the one that the Joker hurt (really bad... on the Suicide Squad trailer), and now became Oracle? I remember that Jason Todd's death happened before Barbara becoming Oracle. So it would make more sense that this happened recently (more recently than Jason Todd) now that Batman's around 45 years old

45 is the new 25.

Gotta say I like this idea a lot more than her playing the Carrie Kelley "Robin" that was speculated months ago. Particularly if Jim Gordon is dead in this incarnation of the Dark Knight mythos, it'd be nice to have a human connection to the Batman's one-time staunchest ally.

Good fit for Oracle

I can definitely see Malone both as the steady voice guiding Batman around Gotham and (in flashbacks) an ass-kicking Batgirl.
