UPDATE: Scoot McNairy Nabs A 'Secret' Role In BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

We're left to speculate on who the Argo actor is playing, but recent reports reveal that Scoot McNairy is reteaming with Ben Affleck for a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check it out!

Principal photography on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is well underway in Michigan, with potentially spoiler-heavy scenes being filmed just yesterday, but a new cast member has just been revealed. According to Deadline, actor Scoot McNairy is joining the Zack Snyder-directed film in an unspecified role that "nobody at Warner Bros. will confirm." That's pretty much all the info provided for the last-minute casting, but it seems possible that McNairy could be playing an established DC character that could become pivotal in the Justice League movie, like a few other Dawn of Justice cast members. Anyhow, Batman v Superman will reteam Scoot McNairy with his Argo director and co-star Ben Affleck, and the versatile actor also had roles in 12 Years a Slave, and Marvel's Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray short film All Hail the King. What do you think? 

UPDATE: Could Scoot McNairy be playing Nightwing? That is at least what Latino Review scooper El Mayimbe is insinuating via Twitter. Richard Grayson was among the first characters rumored to play a minor role in Batman v Superman before appearing full-fledged in Justice League, back when the role was linked to actor Adam Driver, who has since joined Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII. Also, Deadline's scoop has been confirmed by The Wrap, whose sources are "sworn to secrecy" regarding McNairy's role. Speculation says he's The Flash on the big-screen, but what do you think?




Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter. The film, written by Chris Terrio from David S. Goyer's screenplay, and directed by Zack Snyder, hits May 6, 2016!

@ MrNiklander - either way, the meaning is the same! ;)
Ignition - 6/26/2014, 11:06 AM
Lots of you might disagree, but he'd be a great Barry Allen.
MrNiklander - 6/26/2014, 11:06 AM
@TheIncredibleHulksta nailed it
Reasonnnn - 6/26/2014, 11:08 AM
Great actor
yossarian - 6/26/2014, 11:09 AM
He is dead. False reporting. Brad Pitt shot him at the end of Killing Them Softly.

At first I thought Scoot was just a typo for Scott, but nope, this guys name really is Scoot......His parents must have really hated him.
Desrow - 6/26/2014, 11:12 AM
Metallo??

MrBlackjack - 6/26/2014, 11:13 AM
Kinda looks like he could be a Barry Allen.
Darktower - 6/26/2014, 11:14 AM

oh this guy!! well his acting was good in argo ..so ya gud stuff...
GuardianAngel - 6/26/2014, 11:14 AM
I honestly stopped giving a [frick] about this movie, so if they don't connect it to the TV Shows... whatever.
MrBlackjack - 6/26/2014, 11:14 AM
If he bulked up some he might be able to pass for Hal Jordan.
Pasto - 6/26/2014, 11:15 AM
First page problems.
EzioKenway1225 - 6/26/2014, 11:16 AM
interesting..... hmmm
JillyMcBeam - 6/26/2014, 11:16 AM
I could see him as Barry Allen.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/26/2014, 11:17 AM
He would make a great Flash!
Starfox - 6/26/2014, 11:17 AM
I don't think he's Hal Jordan or Barry Allen. Maybe a Lex Luthor Accomplice/Employee
Starfox - 6/26/2014, 11:18 AM
Come to think of it though I think he could make a great Green Lantern.
yossarian - 6/26/2014, 11:19 AM
He's Robin.
DEVLIN712 - 6/26/2014, 11:19 AM
Cool, he could be a range of characters, good or bad. I think he kinda looks like the Riddler
MrMartinMarvel - 6/26/2014, 11:19 AM
Scoot, hehe.
Desrow - 6/26/2014, 11:20 AM
@GuardianAngel,

Tuuralihn - 6/26/2014, 11:21 AM
Jimmy Olsen? Flash?
MrBlackjack - 6/26/2014, 11:21 AM
@Starfox: You're probably right, he might just have a smaller role. It just kinda feels like one of those castings (if this is indeed true).
DaVinci31 - 6/26/2014, 11:22 AM
@TheIncredibleHulksta

Wrong, 22 Jump Street Jonah Hill will be Jimmy Olsen.


Omarvls - 6/26/2014, 11:23 AM
Damn
This movie is going to be INSANE

I want set photos of Batman Superman and Wonder Woman already
It will make the internets explode

Scoot".

If the day ever comes when I somehow manage to delude myself into believing I'd make a good dad, I am SO going to get drunk when I think up names for my kid.
RegularDCFan - 6/26/2014, 11:24 AM
Maybe Joker?
BaneSmash - 6/26/2014, 11:24 AM
I could see him as Hal Jordan or Berry Allen........
Turk - 6/26/2014, 11:25 AM
SMH terrible actor. This movie is doomed LMFAO. Just give up DC.
Brainiac13 - 6/26/2014, 11:25 AM
Barry Allen.
JillyMcBeam - 6/26/2014, 11:26 AM
I'm hoping Allen gets casted soon because I don't want DC adding their CWTV universe to the movies. No disrespect to the actors that play in those TV shows, but they are not big screen material.
Brainiac13 - 6/26/2014, 11:26 AM
Yeah....or Hal Jordan.
Starfox - 6/26/2014, 11:26 AM
@MrBlackJack
yeah it doesn't really seem like they would cast him for a Hero but who knows lol.
