Jena Malone is Batgirl in Batman v Superman?!

The upcoming Batman v Superman film is already one of the most anticipated of next year, but the folks over at Latino Review may have just ramped up the hype even further. This is thanks to a rumour they published which claims that Jena Malone, whose character in Batman v Superman has not been officially revealed, will be portraying Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl.

The actress, best known for her role in the Hunger Games films, has previously been rumoured to be playing the Robin to Ben Affleck's Batman, however this rumour seems to suggest that isn't the case. The character of Barbara Gordon has a very rich history; she takes to the streets as Batgirl for many years, and then after she is tragically paralysed by the Joker in the Killing Joke storyline, takes on the mantle of Oracle (a genius computer hacker). This is a story arc that we could potentially see translated onto the big screen in DC's new cinematic universe.
