We Now Know Who Jena Malone Is Playing In ‘Batman V Superman’

With two weeks until the release of  Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, one of the biggest mysteries is who Jena Malone is playing in the “ultimate edition” home media release. Well, it seems that it’s no longer a mystery thanks to a very active redditor. Check out this image.

This picture is a copy of a survey that this particular redditor claims he received after seeing the movie. On the survey, it lists Jena Malone as Barbara Gordon. Many fans know Barbara Gordon as her alter-ego Batgirl. To some, this doesn’t make sense because just last week, director Zack Snyder claimed that Jena Malone was neither playing Robin nor Batgirl. However, he certainly didn’t make any claims about her not being Barbara Gordon or, more importantly, The Oracle. What’s confusing is if she’s playing such an important role, then why was she cut from the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice theatrical release.

My intial thought is perhaps in the rated R version of the film; they just might give us an adaptation of Barbara’s crippling from Batman: The Killing Joke. 

What do you guys think?
