Jena Malone Has Blonde Hair in the Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition Trailer

Hey, so. The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition trailer is here. And Jena Malone is in it plus a lot of other stuff. It looks like a different movie.

Honestly just from the clips shown in this new trailer, it looks like there was another movie to be made here entirely. And that’s after I’ve gone on record to say Batman v Superman felt like three films in one. There’s good stuff here, it just wasn’t shaped well. I’d also love to see a cut that was just a Batman movie and another that was just a Superman movie. Oh but to dream.

Anyway, let’s talk about this Jena Malone stuff. Spoilers if you’ve somehow managed to avoid previous reports of who she was supposedly playing in the film before she was cut.


So here she is from the new trailer. She’s at the Daily Planet, talking to Lois, and she’s blonde. What does this mean? It could mean absolutely nothing but let’s discuss anyway.

When we’d heard she’d been cut from the film entirely, we were still wondering who she was playing. The prevailing rumor was Barbara Gordon, though I was leaning toward another redhead, Carrie Kelley, because Zack Snyder was pulling some of his story from The Dark Knight Returns. At that time, Snyder very specifically said: “She’s definitely not Robin or Batgirl. I’m happy to say that.”

Ok, so she didn’t have a moniker, but she could still be one of them as a civilian. Sure enough, a short time later a Warner Bros. survey seemingly gave her role away completely – Barbara Gordon. But, as we all know, Barbara is a redhead. But as we all also know, Snyder actually doesn’t give a fuck about beloved comic characters.

So yeah, she could not be Babs at all. She could be Babs in a disguise. She could be Babs with blonde hair. She could be violently assaulted at any second. Did I cover all the bases? I still can’t believe she was cut. I’m interested to see her but not enough to buy the film.

And in case you were wondering if you should pick up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition, the film’s cinematographer Larry Fong had this to say:

  1. This is weird since she had dyed her hair vibrant orange when it was leaked she was in the movie. I missed her the first time I watched this because I was expecting a ginger.
    Is this going to be DVD or is it Blu-Ray exclusive malarkey?
    I’m hoping my library can get me a copy to borrow.

    Those of you who are fans, will dig it. If you hated it, you’ll still hate it.

    Wait, what about me, a person with some ambivalence who enjoyed parts and hated parts and thought it was a major step up from Man of Steel and Wonder Woman was great?

    I’ll probably walk away with the exact same ambivalence, but from a longer movie, huh? Oh, okay.

  3. I have made great strives toward NOT piracy since landing a pretty comfortable job. I have Sling TV, too much genuine Amazon Music, and an Audible account.

    But I’m not going to pay to see this. Fool me once, shame on you. Try to fool me twice, and ARRRRRRRRRR

    Ugggh, I love Jena Malone so much I could die.

    But this movie looks like a steaming pile.

    But I love her.

    But steaming pile.

    With her being a blonde hanging out with Lois, she could be Cat Grant.

  6. Snyder also doesn’t care at all about famous hair design, considering Superman’s lack spitcurl, Lois Lane’s red hair, and Lana Lang’s black hair. So this could be the second blonde Barbara Gordon (or Pennyworth, I suppose) in a big Hollywood movie.

    That said, what are the odds she’s just Cat Grant at the Daily Planet and gets killed in the first battle of Metropolis in flashbacks?
