Hello readers! Today, I have some very exciting news that involves Jena Malone's mysterious character in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. For many months now, there's been rumors that she was playing Barbara Gordon, AKA Oracle. But now thanks to the DC Extended Universe Instagram page, her character in the film is revealed to be Jenet Klyburn!
For those who don't know who this character is, Jenet Klyburn is a scientist that works at S.T.A.R. Labs in Metropolis. In the comics, she has been a known ally to Superman, the Teen Titans, and also a friend of Will Magnus, who was a scientist and a creator of the Metal Men. She was introduced during DC's Earth One era, and continued during the Crisis on Infinite Earths series also.
Cosmic Book News reported an article regarding leaked spoilers from the Ultimate Edition of Dawn of Justice. The article states that she is a lab technician that helps Lois Lane find out information on the bullet from the African village where (SPOILER!) was revealed to be undercover and was killed in front of Lois.
What Does This Mean For The Future Of The DCCU?
Jenet Klyburn could play a bigger part in future films since S.T.A.R. Labs is most famous for the creation of Cyborg. We also know that Cyborg's father was experimenting with a Motherbox, which is an object tied to Darkseid. Dr. Emil Hamilton, who was seen in Man of Steel, is also a employee at S.T.A.R. Labs. So maybe Zack Snyder can make Jenet be a key player into what happens during Justice League: Part 1 and Justice League: Part Two, and perhaps even in the Cyborg and The Flash solo films.
So, will Jenet Klyburn have a future role in the DCEU? If you have any thoughts, make sure to comment them below, share this article and follow if you want more. Thanks for reading!
