Some new information has been brought to light thanks to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Ultimate Edition home release. It lays another bizarre layer on Jena Malone's character and honestly I don't know what to think anymore. Back in March, before Zack Synder's Batman v Superman hit theaters, we found out Malone had been cut from the film entirely. This was after a few years of fan speculation on who she was playing in the first place. Then just a week later, a Warner Bros. survey was apparently linked that straight up named the actor as Barbara Gordon. And then came the Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition trailer which briefly featured Malone with blonde hair. Barbara Gordon of course is a famous redhead. I didn't think too much of it since Snyder isn't a stickler for canon. Although the film is set to be released on Digital HD June 28 and on Blu-ray July 19, it seems a leak of the credits has made its way to YouTube. Comic Book Resources posted a video from user Thx-dc which lists Malone as Jenet Klyburn. Klyburn is... wait for it... a redhead and a scientist from S.T.A.R. Labs in Metropolis. So that's underwhelming. And also removes any interest for me to watch the extended version of Batman v Superman. Michael Cassidy is also clearly listed in the credits as Jimmy Olsen (I honestly can't recall if that was the case in the theatrical release) and notably absent is any mention of Hal Jordan. The rumored Dan Amboyer is listed instead as Drone Pilot. »

Zack Snyder has confirmed that Superman character Jimmy Olsen did in fact appear in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," though most wouldn't have realised it. Turns out, according to EW, he was the photo journalist played by Michael Cassidy at the very start.
After being outed as a CIA agent in the opening few minutes, Olsen is promptly killed. Snyder was asked why he decided to kill the character off:

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will get an R-rated Ultimate Edition on home video later this year, with director Zack Snyder teasing that there will be plenty of additional material that was cut from the theatrical version, including an Easter Egg that helps set up Justice League Part 1. Comic Book Movie discovered that the Ultimate Edition is already available for pre-order on Amazon, which lists a July 16 release date. The Blu-ray combo pack will cost $35.99 and include both the theatrical cut and the extended edition, but the site also has artwork for the Amazon collector's editions, which will cost $129.99. There are two different versions of the collector's editions, one featuring a collectible statue of Batman and the other with a Superman statue.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been in theater for a matter of hours, but it's never too early to start diving deep into the story and exploring the Easter Eggs left behind. There had long been rumors that comic book character Jimmy Olsen would have a presence in the movie, with many speculating that Scoot McNairy could be playing this Daily Planet photographer, since his role was never confirmed during the production. Director Zack Snyder confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Jimmy Olsen can be seen in the film, although you may not have noticed him at first. There will be big Spoilers if you haven't seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice yet, so read on at your own risk.
Back in February, a report from a French magazine claimed that Scoot McNairy is playing Jimmy Olsen, but that turned out to be false. The actor was actually »
Some fans are already pretty mad at Zack Snyder for some of the decisions he made in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but now he's going to have Jimmy Olsen devotees coming after him! You see, the photographer (played by Michael Cassidy) who is promptly killed off after being outed as a CIA agent in the opening few minutes of the movie is in fact Jimmy, and Snyder has explained to Entertainment Weekly why he decided to kill the character off. "We just did it as this little aside because we had been tracking where we thought the movies were gonna go, and we don’t have room for Jimmy Olsen in our big pantheon of characters, but we can have fun with him, right?" Apparently, the upcoming Ultimate Edition will shed some light on the character and unlike the theatrical version of Batman v Superman, he'll identify himself. »
It’s a huge week for movie news as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice finally hits cinemas, and of course, plenty more information has leaked out as the release has drawn near (though don’t worry, nothing that’ll ruin the movie for you).
That’s not all, though: we got some insight into the future complexion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some Star Wars tidbits, and the unexpected possibilities of a certain CGI-heavy action film franchise.
Here are 11 movie spoilers we didn’t know last week…
11. Jimmy Olsen Is Definitely In Batman v Superman The CW

The laughs are out there.
TBS has given a series order to People of Earth, a comedy starring Daily Show alum Wyatt Cenac as a skeptical journalist investigating a support group for alleged alien abductees.
In the series, from Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels (The Office) and formerly known as The Group, Cenac’s Ozzie Graham slowly becomes sympathetic to the survivors’ stories and eventually comes to suspect that maybe he is an abductee, as well.
