You may remember just after cameras had begun to roll on Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice that actress Jena Malone was spotted on set, leading to rampant speculation that she’d be playing a role in the movie. Well, it turns out Snyder actually did cast his Sucker Punch pal… but then left her on the cutting room floor.
This came to light in yet another lengthy piece from EW. Anthony Breznican (who has seen the film) confirmed that Malone’s “secret character” won’t show up in the theatrical release, but will be added into the R-rated extended cut on Blu-ray.
So, who is she playing? Well, up until now it’s been rumored that she’s either a female take on Robin, or Barbara Gordon, AKA Batgirl – and while the former is still a possibility, Breznican also confirms that Malone is definitely not the latter.
We’ll probably have to wait a while to find out her identity, but it is implied that whoever Malone is playing is important in establishing the future of the DCEU.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be with us in just a few weeks time, as it hits theatres on March 25.
