EXCLUSIVE: We Know Who Jena Malone Is Playing in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

– by L-R

A few weeks ago, while at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, I found out some information about who Jena Malone will be playing in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Well, now I got the third source and can exclusively reveal that she will playing Barbara Gordon.


Now, will she become Batgirl or Oracle, as she has in the comics? Who knows? Only time will tell.

This news contradicts earlier reports, when Malone was first cast, that she'd be playing a version of Robin based on the young, female Carrie Kelley depicted in Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns."

The film stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and Jason Momoa

On the heels of the worldwide success of "Man of Steel," director Zack Snyder is bringing together the two greatest Super Heroes of all time - Batman and Superman for the first time on the big screen.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will hit theaters on March 25, 2016 and is directed by Snyder from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer.

What do you folks think of Jena playing Barbara Gordon? Let us know below.
