Malone may soon be playing a very familiar red head in "Batman v Superman."

A scan from an unidentified French magazine appears to confirm Scoot McNairy, Jena Malone and Callan Mulvey's roles in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." If the scan proves to be legitimate, this article may contain spoilers for the film, so read on at your own risk.

The scan, uploaded by ComicBookMovie.com, claims Malone will play Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl. Though the "Hunger Games" star was rumored to play Carrie Kelly, it looks like she'll be swinging in as a different member of the Bat family, although it's unclear at this time if she'll be suiting up in the film.

Though a recent rumor pegged him as a key witness in the prosecution against Superman, it appears as though McNairy will play Jimmy Olsen after all. Mulvey is also connected to the role of Anatoli Knyazev, aka KGBeast, in the scan.

Warner Bros. declined comment when reached by CBR News.

Directed by Zack Snyder, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits theaters March 25, 2016, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
