Jena Malone's Secret Batman V Superman Role Is No Longer A Secret

Jena Malone's Secret Batman v Superman Role Is No Longer a Secret

The long-running saga of Jena Malone’s mysterious Batman v Superman role is seemingly over. After being rumoured and rumoured for ages — and after Malone was cut from the film’s theatrical release altogether — Warner Bros. has accidentally revealed her character’s identity in a very dumb way.

The news comes from a screenshot posted to Reddit of a Warner Bros. community survey issued to fans, asking what characters they’d like to see more of in Batman v Superman‘s marketing. Despite being cut from the film (and saved for its R-rated home release), Malone is on the list of actors… and credited as playing Barbara Gordon, AKA Batgirl.

Oh dear, Warner Bros.

Now, it very specifically says “Barbara Gordon” rather than “Barbara Gordon/Batgirl”, as it labels Henry Cavill’s “Clark Kent/Superman”. Presumably Malone wouldn’t have been suiting up in Batman v Superman. Additionally, just last week director Zack Snyder said she’s definitely not Batgirl in the wake of the news about Malone being cut from the theatrical release:

I think we should keep it private, but it’s nothing that’s been talked about. She’s definitely not Robin or Batgirl. I’m happy to say that.

I guess he meant to add “…yet!” at the end of that sentence, because why include Barbara Gordon unless she’s going to be Batgirl eventually?
