Mackenzie Gray's Role In MAN OF STEEL Revealed

Mackenzie Gray's Role In MAN OF STEEL Revealed

When the actor announced that he had a secret role in Zack Snyder's reboot, many speculated that he'd be playing Lex Luthor, then a Brainiac rumor popped up, but it turns out he won't be either of them! Click on to find out who Gray will play in Man Of Steel.

The latest character that Gray is rumored to be portraying in Man Of Steel is Jax-Ur -- a rogue Kryptonian scientist who joins up with General Zod. (via Digital Spy) don't cite a source (aside from "online buzz") so it'd be best not to read too much into it until we have more evidence, but I'd say this is more likely than him playing either Lex or Brainiac myself. Jax-Ur has been depicted in several different ways since his debut in DC comics, and popped up in Smallville as a character called Dax-Ur, creator of Brainiac. Could Snyder and co. have similar plans for him in Man Of Steel? Do you think this will even be the character he'll play? Sound off below.

UPDATE: Thanks to CMBer MrShumway, we now have proof that Gray will indeed be playing Jax-Ur. An image and caption from an official Man Of Steel art book confirmed this bit of news--although we have had to take it down due to a copyright request from the art book publisher.

Much more subtle.
Jollem - 5/26/2013, 1:29 PM
i'd be jazzed if non was in the movie
polarkyle - 5/26/2013, 1:30 PM
This is probably true and i hope this leads to brainiac down the line
SuperSam - 5/26/2013, 1:32 PM
I can definitely see him in the role. More so than Lex Luthor anyway.
SGTJ1 - 5/26/2013, 1:33 PM

I saw this posted on my News Feed on Facebook the exact same story!
Ceejay - 5/26/2013, 1:38 PM
Who cares, where's the weekly box office wrap? Fast & the Furious 6 has owned the entire weekend with a $98 million horde. Already done $275 million worldwide, that's $27 million more than Star Treks done in two weeks!
ahhmynuts - 5/26/2013, 1:39 PM

DrDoom - 5/26/2013, 1:40 PM

@ MrShurmway

That is 100% all the news is usually sitting on my newsfeed on Facebook. I crack up that they never give credit where credit is due. But hay that is what happens when you are trying to get 1K a month for posting news articles!
MrCBM56 - 5/26/2013, 1:48 PM
I bet he was also a prisoner on the phantom zone.
ninjahulk - 5/26/2013, 1:50 PM

Locky - 5/26/2013, 1:52 PM
I hope we can heard the word "Brainiac" in Man of Steel.
Abary - 5/26/2013, 1:55 PM
Yeah, I would have posted this but someone already mentioned it in the comments to another article so I didn't post it.
rocky - 5/26/2013, 1:57 PM

Awesomeness in the making
RorMachine - 5/26/2013, 2:14 PM
MrShumway, woah nice find! Guess that's official..I'll update.
Niklander - 5/26/2013, 2:24 PM
Oh good.I like where this is going
LP4 - 5/26/2013, 2:44 PM
Missed opportunity. He would have made an epic Milton Fine/Brainiac
JoeMomma29 - 5/26/2013, 3:02 PM
@ LP4

Who knows maybe he is the one who creates Brainiac and Brainiac is in his image!!!!!!
SnapperCarr - 5/26/2013, 3:19 PM
Yay! More characters from the mythos is always a good thing.
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 3:27 PM
I mentioned it 1st from the art the other day!!! :(
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 3:30 PM

Thanks! Its nice when someone remembers!
LexHairFight - 5/26/2013, 3:34 PM
Why would this be a secret?
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 3:35 PM

'Who knows maybe he is the one who creates Brainiac and Brainiac is in his image'

I like that idea...with all the other biblical references!
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 3:39 PM
If anyone want to know more about Jax-Ur

Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 3:41 PM

I think this will get people talking!
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 3:43 PM
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 3:46 PM
The Man Who Destroyed Krypton!
from Superman #205
LP4 - 5/26/2013, 3:51 PM
@JoeMomma- Damn man I [frick]ing hope that happens. Brainiac HAS to appear in some form in this film.

One thing I am very please with this film though is that they seem to going a great route in terms of introducing VERY obscure characters into the film that have never been in a movie before and that people may not know very much about. Jax-Ur...Faora...Dev-Em...Tor-An...Nam-Ek.

It's very impressive. The Donner films never bothered to explore the obscure Superman characters the way this film is.

So...kudos to Snyder and crew.
LP4 - 5/26/2013, 3:55 PM
I just don't understand why they kept this such a big secret. It's only Jax-Ur ;P

I mean...if he was secretly playing...oh...i don't know...BRAINIAAAAAAAAAAAAAC then yeah keep that a secret lol. But

I said this before but if I see Brainiac in this movie, I'm dropping my pants...instantly. lol
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 4:01 PM
@LP4 many different characters that they are exploring! I am so exited about this movie...the source material is huge...I expect more character that we will see!
Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 4:02 PM
I think we will get hints of Brainiac or a end scene.
NeoBaggins - 5/26/2013, 4:07 PM
First name Jax-Ur last name Ass-Up

Brainiac13 - 5/26/2013, 4:11 PM
World of Krypton miniseries is good read and has Jax-Ur.
LP4 - 5/26/2013, 4:12 PM
@Brainiac3000- Yeah I'm very pleased so far with the movie!
