Rumor: Scoot McNairy might be The Flash in Batman v Superman

08.19.2014

An interesting set photo surfaced today that got a lot of people speculating about a Scoot McNairy’s role in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. While Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have been trying their best to keep most of the specifics about the movie a secret, the Internet doesn’t play by anyone's rules. We have officially seen Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Henry Cavill as Superman once again. Now the new image points at Scoot McNairy’s role in the film, as it looks like he could be playing Barry Allen aka The Flash which of course would make sense considering this is a pre-JUSTICE LEAGUE feature anyways.

Here is the photo in question:

Green socks were the giveaway right? The digital replacement fabric could be for some Flash boots or fire effect. They might be for mechanical legs for all we know; the reality is we don’t know and this is all speculation about McNairy playing The Flash. If it’s true, it could also mean he's in this for the long haul having joined the DC Cinematic Universe because The Flash might even have his own release date in the works with the previously announced dates for untitled DC movies at Warner Bros.

Again, there’s no confirmation on any of this except that BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens in theaters on March 26, 2016. See how I turned that around?

I'm not sure if he's playing Metallo or the Flash, but either way it's a good cast because Scoot McNairy is a talented actor.

I don't get why people would think this picture means he's Flash. I would be a little sad if The Flash even makes an appearance in this film. I get that the TV Show, which hasn't aired yet, is a separate thing as far as how the movie people think, but I keep hoping for a project like this to pull in the existing characters/actors.
also, it feels like it's getting saturated with supes. But I'm already skeptical about the film so...take my comments with a grain of salt ;-)

McNairy is a very good actor, I really liked him in Argo. I think he could definitely play a good Flash, especially Wally West. He's a working actor and not a superstar, which is a good hiring move by WB. They don't need to hire a big name like Bradley Cooper or Ryan Reynolds to be the Flash.

When you are all done being proud of your weak attempt at sarcasm perhaps you could go all whiny like some of the children here and elaborate on how this film is seeming less and less like a sequel to "Man of Steel."

I really think he should be a villain. I could see him as the Riddler. I'm thinking he's Metallo as well. Metallo has been depicted with exposed cybernetic legs.

I have to agree with some of the others who have commented before me. I don't necessarily think that he is playing Flash. I think it is way more likely that he is playing a citizen of Metropolis that was injured in the final battle of Man of Steel and probably has or will get some prosthetic limbs from Luthor.

Something tells me this movie is going to be everything people originally feared Avengers would be.

I hope I'm wrong because I love DC, but that comic-con clip was weak and felt like clip from a fan film.

My opinions have flipped flopped so much on this movie, but the more I think about the move out of summer and into March, I think they realize they might have a stinker. I didn't like Man of Steel at all and I'm not saying that this will suck, dropping Goyer's writing duties was a fantastic plus, but this movie is juggling so many plates, I'm just having trouble being optimistic.

March is a strange month to pin down. Onthe one hand you have 300 and The Hunger Games, and on the other you have John Carter (which, if I remember, had a decent opening, but had such a colossal budget it's no wonder it bombed). Snyder's had some luck with March releases though, so who knows.

I think it's more that summers have become too crowded. Big releases used to hit in June. Then they started coming out Memorial Day. Then the beginning of May. Now April. Blockbuster season's going to start hitting the weekend after the Oscars soon enough.

My best guess would be Metallo. As good of an actor he is, I don't see him playing the Flash. If here were then fine, but I think there are better choices out there.

He would make a fantastic Riddler though.

I personally doubt it. It seems weird everyone thinks that green screen socks means Flash because....legs (?). I'm guessing Metallo, maybe lost his legs during the Kryptonian attack and got some cybernetic implants thanks to Luthor.

Pure speculation but I think he might be playing Metallo.

Makes sense if Luthor is out to get Superman with kryptonite.

I can deal with Batman being brought into what is supposed to be a Superman movie, even Wonder Woman, given that she'll tie in as a descendant of "supergirl" most likely. But The Flash? Aquaman? Who gives a shit about these second rate characters? The more I read about this film the more bloated it sounds like it will be. It will all detract from the (barely) established character of Superman and the progression of his story.

this is not Man of Steel 2. Superman and Batman are the primary focus not just Superman. this is an independent sequel of Man of Steel. Man of Steel 2 is projected to be release sometime after Justice League

Who said this was a Superman movie? This is a DC movie. And no one complains when there are multiple heroes in the ANIMATED films. I don't get the hate for it in live action.

Where are you getting that Wonder Woman will be a descendant of Supergirl? Seems like a really random speculation.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an INDEPENDENT sequel to Man of Steel. to takes place after Man of Steel by before the Justice League officially assemble. the studio want to focus primarily on the Batman and Superman. with the rest of the heroes as introductions. plus there is also rumors that Dawn of Justice and Justice League with be filmed as one entire movie and cut into 2 parts. like Lord of Rings. so it would make sense that they would be announce much of the casting now if it;s

he;s too old to play Barry Allen (Flash). He might be playing someone who was physically effected by the chaos and destruction of Metropolis from the Superman/Zod battle. and the green socks will be CGI prosthetic cyber legs technology likely of Luthor Corp. design
