Jena Malone Is Reportedly Barbra Gordon In Batman V Superman


Jena Malone will reportedly play Barbara Gordon in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While Malone’s casting in the film was known some time ago, many thought that she would pay Carrie Kelly, the Robin from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. But, Latino Review is now reporting that Malone will play Barbara Gordon.

For those who don’t know, Barbara Gordon is the DC Universe’s most recognized and current Batgirl. She is also the daughter of Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, who is rumored to be dead in Batman V. Superman. It is unknown at this time what form Malone’s Gordon could take—Batgirl, or Oracle. After Gordon was paralyzed by the Joker in Alan Moore’s Killing Joke graphic novel, Gordon became an internet sleuth named Oracle, who helped Batman through information retrieval, hacking, and digital communication.

What do you think of Malone as Barbara Gordon, readers? Would you like to see her as Batgirl or Oracle? Let us know in the comments!

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016. To see when other comic book movies are coming out, head on over to's Movie Schedule!

    Latino Review built a reputation on believing every rumor ever (even getting a few right) but the guy who usually reported that is gone. He's running Heroic Hollywood now. Not sure if that means LR will be vetting rumors a little more.

    Please be Oracle. Because I'd like to see either Cassandra Cain or Stephanie Brown being Batgirl. Even though I like the name Black Bat better I've always thought Cassandra was the best Batgirl. So hopefully she will be in the film too.

    I hope we get to see a flashback of her as Batgirl being shot in the spine by Joker. It will make it more of a personal mission for Batman. In fact, I think showing us a flashback scene of the team together, Batman, Robin and Batgirl, and how Robin and Batgirl were killed and paralyzed respectively, would be so cool. I know this Batman is older so I wouldn't be surprised if this happens in the movie. We'll see I guess.

  1. Batgirl!!! She can do a great Batgirl!
