When it was revealed that Jena Malone had a role in Batman V Superman, speculation immediately began that she’ll be playing Barbara Gordon in the movie. That doesn’t seem to be the case at all.
While her scenes were cut from the theatrical version, she will appear in the R-rated Ultimate Edition. In an interview with EW, Zack Snyder says she isn’t Robin or Batgirl:
â€œI think we should keep it private, but itâ€™s nothing thatâ€™s been talked about,â€ Snyder says. â€œSheâ€™s definitely not Robin or Batgirl. Iâ€™m happy to say that.”
Before people think this means she’ll be Oracle and still be Barbara Gordon, Anthony Breznican (the author of the EW piece) saw the movie and debunked a Reddit post that said she’s Babs:
Oh sorry, this one is made-up, too. That's not who Jena and Scoot play. https://t.co/zsVQ69gUjl
