‘Batman V Superman’: Scoot McNairy To Play As Yet Unidentified Role

While Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice continues filming, recent pictures have raised more questions than answers. While most of the cast seems set, and one new arrival has her role, Scoot McNairy and Holly Hunter’s roles have yet to be announced, though they has been filming, according to Comic Book Movie.

Already set are Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

The latest addition to the cast, Tao Okamoto, is set to play Mercy Graves, Lex Luthor’s multitalented assistant. Holly Hunter was first thought to be playing Bruce Wayne’s doctor, but now looks like she will take the role of a yet unnamed politician.

So, where does Scoot McNairy fit in?

As you can see by the picture, McNairy is donning green screen socks while taking a break from filming. Since we can safely rule out he’s wearing them for fashion, he is doing some green screen filming, but in what role? MTV has a few ideas;

“The Flash; This is the the online fans guessed most, that McNairy’s legs need to be green screened because he’ll be running fast as The Flash. Still, there’s no confirmation that the character – soon to be seen on TV in his own CW series – will appear in “Batman V Superman,” let alone the production would only need to digitize his legs.”

“Metallo; The Superman villain is powered by Kryptonite, and more man than machine. Could Scoot have robot legs, and more robot parts beyond that? We know the heroic Cyborg appears in the movie, or at least his human alter ego Victor Stone, so maybe McNairy is also sporting some sweet metal feet.”

“His legs get cut off; with literally no knowledge about the plot of the movie this is the most likely possibility. McNairy is still wearing business attire, so unless he’s just chilling in his “Halt and Catch Fire” costume to cover up a full green man suit, it looks like he’s going to lose his legs at some point. Poor Scoot”

“Legs; Speaking of legs, maybe Scoot is playing Legs, a homeless Vietnam Vet who appeared throughout Batman comics in the ’90s. In the comics, Legs worked for a villain named Anarky, though no word on whether the baddie appears in “Batman V Superman.” Also, McNairy doesn’t look very homeless, not to throw out any stereotypes, but you know, business suit. So he’s probably not playing Legs.”

“He’s rocking the lastest fashion trends; highly doubtful.”

Whichever the case, all will be revealed on the newly set release date, March 15, 2016.
