Jena Malone’s Cut Character From ‘Batman v Superman’ Revealed

Jena Malone’s mystery character may have been cut from the theatrical release of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but she’s made it into the film’s DVD and Blu-ray.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released the trailer Thursday for the upcoming “Ultimate Edition Cut.” The DVD, which boasts a three-hour running time, is out on June 28 and the Blu-ray debuts July 17.

Along with more shots from the North Africa sequence, Malone’s glasses-wearing character addresses Amy Adams’ Lois Lane character in the trailer, saying, “That’s why you’re a great reporter. This stuff still shocks you.”

It was first revealed in March that Malone’s character was cut from the film, but would appear in the R-rated extended cut on home video. The trailer does not reveal the specifics of her character.

Warner Bros. released “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” on March 25 with Henry Cavill starring as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, with Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel.”

The film grossed a mildly disappointing $870 million worldwide.

    I can’t wait to see what role that Jena Malone would be playing and will she appear in the either Batman or Superman solo action film.

    You know how stupid it is to say 870 million hit is disappointing..seriously stop looking for validation, the movie was a hit and was hurt by bias marvel loving critics..

    • Shandy says:

      I think the point was that a film starring Batman AND Superman, along with Wonder Woman, should’ve easily exceeded a billion due to the characters’ insane popularity…so in terms of its potential/expectations, it can be considered a flop.

    • Chris Morris says:

      Thankyou, finally, I thought I was the only one that liked the film, and yeah $870 million is not a disappointment. I do wish that they would shut up (the critics)

    • pixelted says:

      I really don’t understand… the BVS budget was around $250 million and grossed $870 million and everyone calls it a box office disappointment… Meanwhile Guardians of the Galaxy’s budget was around $230 million and grossed $770 million and everyone labels it a box office success!!! Never mind the critical reception. Both films grossed huge amounts of profit, one more than the other, and still people have the nerve to call the other one unsuccessful due to their own opinions.

      • Harry says:

        Lol, you probably don’t know how movies work… the budget was 250 mil PLUS the promotional costs (over 200 mil)…you are looking at a total budget of 450 mil, some say it was even more… So of the 870 mil it made – 450 mil = 420 mil… however this is not the profit for the studio, only half of that. So it finally made like 210 mill for the studio. Considering Batman AND Superman, the most iconic superheroes ever, it is quite disappointing.

      • You really are going to compare a film that has Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman onscreen for the first time to a film starring characters nobody had heard of? The film should have made over $1 billion all analysts were predicting that WB spent huge amounts of money thinking it would. Sure it made profit but considering the brand name and the hype it is a disappointment no point trying to spin it.

      • Gerard Kennelly says:

        round it off
        the budget was 300
        it grossed 900
        how is that disappointing ?

  4. JR says:

    Wish it were the complete 4 hr version but this will do till then. I’ve already ordered the 3D combo pack

  5. siebertws13 says:

    Nothing could make me see this movie again. And a LONGER version? LOL.

    • Austin Mount says:

      Right? My hope is that the extra footage will put in enough story content to fix some of the stupidity. But I’ll never pay for it. My expectations for Justice League will never rise above meh, due to this obviously over hyped turd.

  6. Matches Malone says:

    This version will, hopefully, have the extra footage to fix the pacing issue of the theatrical release. I eagerly await June 28!

  7. HDPR says:

    This series is a hot mess. They should just start over with a director who likes practical effects and no crazy filtering.

    • Gerard Kennelly says:

      @ HDPR

      This series is a mess. They should just start over with a director who likes practical effects

      sounds like the SW fans who despised the prequels
