So, for ages and ages we’ve been hearing that Jena Malone was in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. And everyone seemed convinced she was going to play Carrie Kelley, the female Robin from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns that a lot of BvS seems based on.
And hey, that made a lot of sense…
But now Screenrant are claiming they know who she’s playing… and it’s not Robin.
They are claiming she is none other than Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon and eventual Batgirl and Oracle in the comics.
So, if she is Gordon, what’s her role? Will she be taking over from her father is, as we’ve heard several times, he really is dead? Will he have the bat suit too? Will Joker cripple her and turn her into Oracle at some point?
No idea… but it’s fun to speculate, right?
And here’s further speculation…
We’ve known for some time now that KGBeast was in Batman V Superman, though we didn’t know who was playing him. But now we do.
Now Heroic Hollywood are reporting that Captain America: Civil War actor Callan Mulvey will be Lex Luthor’s Russian right hand man, Anatoli Knyazev aka the KGBeast. They report that he won’t be the Beast from the comics exactly but rather Luthor’s muscle who tracks metahumans for him.
Will he become closer to his comic counterpart in future movies? Well, we wouldn’t rule it out. (More after the picture)
