Jena Malone, Callan Mulvey and Scoot McNairy Roles in Batman v Superman Revealed


Jena Malone (The Hunger Games Franchise), Scoot McNairy (Argo) and Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of the Empire) roles of are in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have possibly been revealed. 

According to a French Magazine called Cine’ Saga, Jena Malone is playing Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Scoot McNairy is playing Jimmy Olsen and Callan Mulvey is playing Anatoli Knyazev/KGBeast. Of course this isn’t official until Warner Bros. makes it official.

Earlier on fans were convinced that Jena Malone would be playing Robin, the Carrie Kelly version from The Dark Knight Returns, but later many were on board of speculating she was playing Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, more so Barbara as Oracle.

It was also speculated that Scoot McNairy would be playing Jimmy Olsen and his friendship with Superman was connected to the fact that Superman saved him in the Metropolis fight by defeating Zod.

It was already speculated that Callan Mulvey would be playing the Batman villain and Suicide Squad member KGBeast, however could this be where a crossover with Suicide Squad could occur.

It’s also revealed at the bottom that Jared Leto will in fact have a cameo as The Joker in a flashback.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

  • Oh, the hype is killing me … in a good way.

  • What about Dan Amboyer?

    • Well we can’t know everything. :p

      • ernest schoenmakers

        I”m just asking myself how reliable this new info is, it might be just another rumour.

        • Howdy Ernest! Yeah, I agree. The scan of the magazine looks real, but it could be faked.

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Hi, exactly, what did you think of that Reddit ”review”?

          • I think everything on Reddit to date is fake. Period. Liars, trolls and attention seekers.

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Yeah maybe we will know when the movie comes out, as simple as that. One thing is certain, making Jena Malone the future Batgirl is a stoke of genius.

  • That1Guy
    • ernest schoenmakers

      One of my dreams that Jena Malone is playing Batgirl/Oracle. In BvS she might be playing a crippled Barbara Gordon who has to become Oracle, certainly not Batgirl.

  • WUT

    Shouldn’t it be oracle, not batgirl?

    • CmputrBlu

      This late in the game (Batman’s career) sounds like it probably would be Oracle.

      • hehe

        I thought the same thing, the magazine says batgirl but barbara should be oracle

      • ernest schoenmakers

        Very unlikely that babs is batgirl cause there were no reports about Jena Malone doing workouts in the gym so she won’t be Batgirl.

        • cool

          yeah i was thinking the same thing

          oracle would be a nice touch to the movie!

          • ernest schoenmakers

            These tabloids aren’t that trustworthy so a crippled Babs or Oracle is the likeliest.

    • ernest schoenmakers

      At any rate she won’t be playing Batgirl, it’s just Babs or maybe Oracle.

  • jokensy

    So, this means that this Reddit thing was real…

    • ernest schoenmakers

      Well almost 500 people believed it but i don’t know, we only know for sure when the movie comes out.

  • Caped Baldy

    it’s lit

  • Red Queen

    I don’t buy that Scoot is Jimmy. He’s older than Cavill, it wouldn’t make a lot of sense. Also, from what I’ve heard, this magazine isn’t really that huge in France. I’m taking this with a huge grain of salt.

    • ernest schoenmakers

      Well we also have an older Bats now and an older Barbara Gordon so you can’t really say that it doesn’t make any sense.

      • Red Queen

        But Barbara is still younger than Batman. Scoot is older than Cavill. It would make no sense for Jimmy to be older than Superman.

        • Char

          Jimmy is not black in the comics, but he is in Supergirl, is not about making sense, these are just different versions of the character, Scoot could be an older Jimmy and still be Superman’s friend. By the way, despite Jimmy being black in Supergirl, most people don’t care, the show has the highest ratings of all superhero series on tv.

          • Red Queen

            I don’t watch Supergirl, so I won’t comment on it.
            I’m still not convinced Scoot is Jimmy. But we’ll see.

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Well all we know is that Scoot lost his legs, it must’ve been in a fight maybe between Bats and Supes cause he was there to make photos of it, so he might be a reporter.

          • Red Queen

            Maybe. Doesn’t mean it’s Jimmy.
            I actually think that Ted Kord is more likely. But we’ll see.

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Also possible but Jimmy Olsen is a big name compared to Ted Kord so i’ll go for Jimmy and Scoot said in an interview that he was very pleased with his role, he’s not just a smalltown boy.

          • Red Queen

            Ted is not even remotely a small town boy.
            But, like I said, we’ll see.
