Batman v Superman Rumors On Who Scoot McNairy Is Playing

There has been some chatter on-line about some photos taken of Scoot McNairy on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But before I show them to you, let me bust out the appropriate new spoiler image.






Okay, for a lot of people when Scoot McNairy was cast in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, they wondered who he was going to be playing. Other wondered who Scoot McNairy was. These photos have show up on-line yesterday and of course it has lead to a huge amount of speculation on who he may be playing.

So people see a green suit under his clothes and exposed at the lower legs and they think, The Flash! And sure enough you can check sites and find people claiming that McNairy is playing Barry Allen.

Now I just don't see that. Why would you just have the lower legs showing on the Flash? What about his powers needs to be CG from the kneecap down?

The other speculation… and I'm more likely to buy this one… is that he's playing Metallo. I can see a scenario where he looks like normal John Corben until you get to the robotic feet.

Either way, what these photos tell us is that McNairy is playing something that gets CG feet… or he has really really odd taste in socks.

And if you still don't know who Scoot McNairy is… he played Jackson Norris, the reporter / Mandarin henchman in the Marvel One Shot: All Hail The King.
