Rebel Moon: Who Is The Spider-Woman & What Does She Look Like In Real Life?

Now that a fancy new trailer has given us our first real look into Zack Snyder's sci-fi epic, "Rebel Moon," there is plenty for viewers to parse out and extrapolate on as we wait for the December release date to arrive at last. From griffin-like creatures to Anthony Hopkins as a robot named Jimmy, there are a lot of details to unpack in our first look at the upcoming science fiction movie, but one of the most jarring is definitely the spider-woman who appears midway through.

If you didn't recognize the actor underneath that makeup and those prosthetics, you'll likely be happy to know that it is two-time Zack Snyder collaborator Jena Malone. The presence of her character, who is named Harmada, is one of the most significant details in the "Rebel Moon" trailer, and it looks like she will be a force to be reckoned with as well. The teaser shows her doing battle with a laser-sword-wielding woman called Nemesis (Bae Doona) and descending from the ceiling with a victim wrapped in her many legs. As for Malone herself, she's a successful performer who you may have seen in one of her many previous projects.

Jena Malone has had an impressive career

On top of her roles as Rocket in "Sucker Punch" and Jenet Klyburn in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," Jena Malone has been in a ton of other movies and television shows. With over 80 credits to her name and a career that goes back nearly 30 years, Malone has been a busy performer ever since she was a child.

If you're a movie lover of a certain age, you might remember her as Gretchen Ross, the love interest of Jake Gyllenhaal's titular character in "Donnie Darko" and as Alyssa Beck, Hayden Christensen's girlfriend in "Life as a House." Even more notably, she also appeared as the rebellious spitfire Johanna Mason in the latter three "Hunger Games" movies and as the villainous Ruby in Nicholas Winding Refn's shocking thriller, "The Neon Demon."

More recently, you may have seen Malone as Angie Bowie in the David Bowie biopic "Stardust" or as Elizabeth in the Janelle Monae-starring horror film "Antebellum." Either way, though, Malone is an accomplished performer, and considering that she's one of the top-billed actors in "Rebel Moon," you can probably expect to see more than one scene with her in the upcoming science fiction epic.
