Do you remember when Jena Malone really, really wanted to be Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games series? Malone was rumored to have ‘leaked’ her being cast in the role in order to push for her to be cast. Which is bananas, but maybe could work in Hollywood. Or would just work to undermine an actress going after a role she really wants.
Malone’s name has been listed on IMDB as a part of the cast and the rumors concerning who she may play have been circulating since 2014. You’ve probably heard that she might be the female Robin Carrie Kelley from The Dark Knight Returns comic run. Now speculation has turned to a more recognizable character Malone may be portraying: Barbara Gordon, AKA Batgirl.
Several outlets are holding up a scan from a French magazine called Cine Saga that profiles the cast and their roles. If this is a legit magazine, then we have our proof.
Also listed in the cast? Scoot McNairy as Jimmy Olsen and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne. Morgan is definitely confirmed, though the IMDB for McNairy’s character remains blank. WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND DO WE GIVE A SHIT? I’M NOT SURE!
So, what do we think? Are we getting Batgirl or Oracle? Or is Malone another redhead in the DC Universe?
