Rumor Mill Turns About Roles Of Jena Malone And Callan Mulvey In ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’

Rumor Mill Turns About Roles Of Jena Malone And Callan Mulvey In 'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

There’s eight months left for all the secrets to be spoiled/revealed for “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice,” and many will be working very hard to do just that. But you can always opt out. So if you don’t want to know anything about the upcoming movie, stop reading here, because spoilers lay ahead. However, for those of you who don’t mind all the nitty gritty details, read on….

First up, according to the rumor mill, Callan Mulvey will play the role of Anatoli Knyazev in the film. Wait, who? Well, super comic book fans know him better as KGBeast, Lex Luthor’s enhanced secret agent baddie. The movie apparently won’t quite follow the comics; instead he’ll just be keeping tabs on metahumans, but it’s wink to the diehards out there.

Meanwhile, Jena Malone is supposedly portraying Barbara Gordon, a.k.a. Batgirl, who went on become Oracle. So much for those rumors she was playing Robin (which were also squashed when the film’s trailer revealed that character is probably dead). Either way, it’s safe to assume her role is integral if Warner Bros. went to the trouble of launching a lawsuit when her casting was leaked by an extra.

We’ll see how this all pans out when the film is released on March 25, 2016. [Birth Death Movies/Heroic Hollywood]
