Rumours that Jena Malone is going to appear in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice have been flying around the internet ever since she visited the set last year. Ostensibly she was there to check-in with her Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder, but we weren’t buying that for a second.
The popular thinking was that she was playing Carrie Kelly, the female Robin who featured in The Dark Knight Returns, on which the film is (incredibly loosely) based. That’s looked increasingly less likely with the development that Bruce Wayne is a recluse mourning the death of a Robin (probably Jason Todd), played by Eli Snyder (Zack’s son) in flashback. Instead, rumours have been flying around that’ll she’s actually Barbra Gordon, daughter of the (in this universe) deceased Commissioner Gordon and the most memorable version of Batgirl.

With Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in the proverbial can, and with Suicide Squad shooting until September, work is now well underway on the DC movie universe. And as it turns out, two of Warner Bros' and DC's next comic book adaptations are heading to production in the next year.
First up will be Wonder Woman, that's going to shoot in the UK. Production will begin in the autumn of this year. Director Patty Jenkins is currently in pre-production on the movie, which will star Gal Gadot. We'd imagine that Wonder Woman will shoot until early 2016.
Then Zack Snyder will be back on set in 2016 for his pair of Justice League movies. Production on those will be starting in spring 2016, and we'd imagine - although it's not been confirmed - that the two »
Batman-News have scoured through the latest edition of Empire Magazine and compiled eighteen more interesting reveals about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Below are just a handful of their observations, but you can find the full list by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page. You have to wonder whether Christopher Nolan's surprise at Zack Snyder wanting to deliver a new take on Batman is what led to him deciding not to serve as a producer on any more of the DC Comics movies after Man of Steel; based on his past comments, he more than likely wanted Snyder to be able to move forward without feeling like he had to look to Nolan for guidance or advice. Regardless, there are some other very interesting titbits here, including the fact that Ben Affleck is wearing a wig as Bruce Wayne and that Batman at »
Ever since the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debuted during Warner Bros.' Hall H panel at Comic-Con earlier this month, the superhero adventure has been riding a wave of positive buzz. There is still plenty we don't know about the story thus far, including a few actors whose characters have yet to be confirmed. Two separate reports surfaced today from Latino-Review and Heroic Hollywood that have reportedly revealed the characters played by Jena Malone and Callan Mulvey. While these details have yet to be confirmed, there may be potential spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
Way back in October, Jena Malone was confirmed for a mystery role in Batman v Superman, after being spotted on the set alongside director Zack Snyder. Since then, she was rumored to be playing Carrie Kelley and Kahina the Seer, but those roles were never confirmed. Today's »
It’s been a pretty good week for DC fans, what with some new images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice [see here and here] and comments from the likes of Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck. And now we have a couple of rumours to chew on, concerning the identity of the characters played by Jena Malone and Callan Mulvey…
According to Latino-Review, Jena Malone – who has been heavily rumoured to play Carrie Kelley, the female Robin from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – is actually portraying Barbara Godon, who may or may not be in her Batgirl or Oracle guises. Meanwhile, Heroic Hollywood is claiming that Callan Mulvey will appear as the DC villain Anatoli Knyazev, a.k.a. KGBeast, who has long been rumoured to make an appearance.
As always, take these with a pinch of salt, particularly given the sources…

Earlier today, we heard a rumor that Callan Mulvey would be playing KGBeast in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, hot on the heels of that scoop, we’re hearing that another role in the film has potentially been revealed. Like the Mulvey rumor, this is unconfirmed, but Latino Review believes that Jena Malone will be playing none other than Barbara Gordon, Commissioner James Gordon’s daughter.
The actress has been rumored for several parts already, including Robin and Carrie Kelley, but this most recent report says that three sources confirm that she’s in fact playing Barbara, which means that she may suit up as Batgirl or become Oracle somewhere down the line, as she did in the comics.

Last year came a rumor that not only would there be a Robin appearing in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," but that it would be female and akin to the version seen in Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" comic.
At the time there were also rumors that Snyder's "Sucker Punch" star Jena Malone would be taking on the character as she was spotted on Detroit set for a brief period sporting red hair like the character did in the Miller comic.
With the film's recent Comic Con trailer now confirming that at least one male Robin has died prior to the events of the movie, and offering no suggestion of a replacement, the talk of Malone's potential involvement has switched to another character.
Latino Review claims to have heard from three different sources that Malone is playing Barbara Gordon in the film. Whether she'll just be herself, »

Last fall, a rumor surfaced that Robin would be appearing in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in a way unlike any version of the Dark Knight’s sidekick we’ve seen on screen before. This incarnation of the character was rumored to be female. And there were even rumblings that Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch star Jena Malone was […]

In December of last year, Badass Digest (now Bmd) reported that one of Lex Luthor's goons in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice would be none other than KGBeast: the physically enhanced Batman villain that made his debut in 1988's Ten Nights of the Beast. Heroic Hollywood now reckon they've not only confirmed the character's involvement, but also that Callan Mulvey (The Winter Soldier, 300: Rise Of An Empire) will be playing him. In the comic books this guy sports a rather fetishistic costume and displays super strength and agility thanks to his cybernetic enhancements, but don't expect the live-action incarnation to follow suit in either regard! Apparently in the movie Knyazev will the man in charge of keeping tabs on the world's metahumans for Luthor. »
Earlier this week, scanned photos from Empire Magazine's latest issue gave us a fresh look at Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and many more characters from the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, Empire has released the high-res images online, giving us a better look at these heroes. As you can see, Batman is using heavy artillery and Gal Gadot's Diana Prince is having a night out in her civilian attire. But it's the Superman photo that is most intriguing.
The Superman photo clearly features this superhero locked in his epic battle with Batman, a fight which has ben teased in a teaser and full-length trailer. It also features a nod to Superman lore, with the actor showcasing his iconic hair curl. The lates Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage shown during Warner Bros.' Hall H panel at Comic-Con showcased a few scenes that »
Exactly one year ago, Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced their insane 9 movie line-up that will take them through 2020. It sounded very ambitious, and some didn't think it was possible. But here we are, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in the can, undergoing post-production work as it rockets towards its March 2016 release date. The second movie on the slate is Suicide Squad, which is currently shooting in Toronto. More than three quarters of the film has been completed, and we've already seen the first teaser trailer. Now comes official word that the next two movies in this amazing line-up are ready to go.
Wonder Woman will arrive June 23, 2017. Director Patty Jenkins is currently in London, prepping Diana Prince's first solo big screen adventure. The character will first be seen in next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. Gal Gadot has long been attached to play Wonder Woman, »
It's not a Man of Steel sequel (supposedly), so it's not Man of Steel 2. It's also got Batman in it, has reportedly drawn some inspiration from Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" and will feature the two title superheroes squaring off. Thus it would be assumed the title would be Batman vs. Superman, but no, not "vs." and not "versus", the latter of which would only add another "s" where it already had one too many, and what's with the periodc But hold off, it's not even going to be Batman v Superman, because that would imply this was a single film, and not part of a cinematic multiverse. No, it's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and director Zack Snyder tells "Empire" magazine why the need for the subtitle in a new cover story that also delivers a batch of new pictures.

Courtesy of the new issue of Empire magazine, a lot more details have suddenly landed about Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice movie. The film, which is effectively the springboard for the DC movie universe, stars Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. And both Affleck and Snyder have been chatting about bringing the character back to the big screen.
Affleck admitted he wasn't sure about the role at first, "then Zack pitched me his concept for this older, more broken, kind of fucked up Batman. It was something we haven't seen. We have seen that Batman is willing to cross the line to protect people. That vigilantism has been a part of his character all along, and we are tapping into that mentality when faced »
It's been a fairly busy day for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice news, with plot details coming from the director and cast that reveal one very big connection between the superhero epic and the super villain adventure Suicide Squad. It seems Batman put all those bad guys away in prison. Earlier this morning, we also got 8 new photos from the Man of Steel follow-up. Empire has released yet another photo, this one featuring Bruce Wayne standing alone in his Batcave, staring at his Batsuit, ready to suit up for the title bout against Kal-El before he faces off against Lex Luthor.
This is a fairly familiar look at Ben Affleck's millionaire and his crime fighting costume. But it's still neat to see it from this angle. While the look and feel doesn't deviate too far from what we saw in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy, it is a bit damper. »

Had enough Batman v Superman news for one day? Tough, here's some more! While it's not as major as the details we discovered from Empire's cover story earlier today, we may now have some insight into another minor character in the film. While promoting his show's revival on Netflix, Longmire's Bailey Chase opened up to /Film about his small, mystery part in Zach Snyder's movie. Hold back your speculation for a moment though. “I’m not a superhero but I’ve got a nice, cool role that opens the movie,” Chase revealed, suggesting it could well be an original part (although it would be a nice touch if his non-powered character still originated from DC Comics). “I get to do quite a bit with Amy Adams and I can’t wait to see it," he continued, "It was just such a thrill to work with Zack Snyder and something on that scale, »
