Jena Malone’s Batman v Superman Character Revealed? For Real This Time?
Some new information has been brought to light thanks to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Ultimate Edition home release. It lays another bizarre layer on Jena Malone's character and honestly I don't know what to think anymore.
Back in March, before Zack Synder's Batman v Superman hit theaters, we found out Malone had been cut from the film entirely. This was after a few years of fan speculation on who she was playing in the first place. Then just a week later, a Warner Bros. survey was apparently linked that straight up named the actor as Barbara Gordon.
And then came the Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition trailer which briefly featured Malone with blonde hair. Barbara Gordon of course is a famous redhead. I didn't think too much of it since Snyder isn't a stickler for canon.
Although the film is set to be released on Digital HD June 28 and on Blu-ray July 19, it seems a leak of the credits has made its way to YouTube. Comic Book Resources posted a video from user THX-DC which lists Malone as Jenet Klyburn. Klyburn is... wait for it... a redhead and a scientist from S.T.A.R. Labs in Metropolis.
So that's underwhelming. And also removes any interest for me to watch the extended version of Batman v Superman. Michael Cassidy is also clearly listed in the credits as Jimmy Olsen (I honestly can't recall if that was the case in the theatrical release) and notably absent is any mention of Hal Jordan. The rumored Dan Amboyer is listed instead as Drone Pilot.
