Jena Malone Cut From ‘Batman v Superman’ Theatrical Release (Report)

Jena Malone’s secret character has been cut from the theatrical release of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” according to a new report — but will appear in the R-rated extended cut on home video.

Entertainment Weekly reported that Malone would not be in the movie, directed by Zack Snyder, but did not explain further.

Rumors have swirled that Malone is portraying either Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl/Oracle or Carrie Kelley, the female Robin from Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns.”

Entertainment Weekly’s cover story also disclosed that the new Green Lantern will not appear in the DC movie universe until “Justice League: Part 2” at the earliest. The character is due to star in a standalone “Green Lantern Corps” movie out in 2020.

Malone was one of the lead characters in Snyder’s 2011 fantasy actioner “Sucker Punch.” She starred in the final three “Hunger Games” movies as the District 7 tribute Johanna Mason and will be seen Nicolas Winding Refn’s “The Neon Demon,” to be released by Amazon Studios.

Warner Bros. will release “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 Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel.”

Jesse Eisenberg stars as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons stars as Alfred and Holly Hunter will play a U.S. senator. Jason Momoa will appear as Aquaman.

“Batman v Superman” has a relatively lengthy running time of two hours and 31 minutes.
