Jena Malone’s ‘Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition’ Role Finally Revealed

For over a year now, fans have been speculating and theorizing about who The Hunger Games‘ Jena Malone could be playing in director Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with two of the most prevailing theories being either the Carrie Kelly version of Robin, or Barbara Gordon/Batgirl. Unfortunately, her role was cut from the theatrical version of the movie, and fans have had to wait for the Ultimate Edition later this month to finally learn her character’s identity.

Or maybe not, as one keen-eyed Reddit user may have figured out her identity ahead of the Ultimate Edition’s release date, and much like Batman v Superman itself, the revelation is slightly disappointing.

It looks like an unlisted YouTube video from the THX-DC Channel called “Batman v Superman – Ultimate Edition – End Credits” may reveal Malone’s character to be Jenet Klyburn, though the video itself has since been removed.

For those of you wondering as well, Klyburn, in the comics, is a scientist at S.T.A.R. Labs, who eventually becomes the company’s director even. It’s certainly not Barbara Gordon by any means, that’s for sure, but to her credit, Klyburn does have some big ties to the rest of the DC Universe in the comics, and her inclusion here could connect her character to possibly Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen/The Flash, or even Cyborg’s father, Silas Stone, with S.T.A.R. Labs branding included in Silas’ video found in Lex Luthor’s files.

That’s all speculation for the time being though, and for now, it looks like fans can at the very least, finally know who Malone is playing in the new DC Cinematic Universe… even if it might not be who they were hoping for.

The Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition on Digital HD June 28th and Blu Ray/DVD on July 19th.
