Scoot McNairy joins the cast of Batman V Superman in an unspecified role

06.26.2014

The average person may not recognize the name Scoot McNairy, but movie fans will instantly know who he is. McNairy has been making a name for himself in recent years with great parts in movies like Gareth Edwards' MONSTERS, KILLING THEM SOFTLY, and Ben Affleck's ARGO. He also recently appeared in the Marvel One-Shot ALL HAIL THE KING and will soon be seen in THE ROVER and David Fincher's GONE GIRL, also opposite Affleck. You can also catch him on the great new AMC series HALT AND CATCH FIRE.

It looks like McNairy really likes working with Affleck as he has just joined Zack Snyder's BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE in an unspecified role. Before we get all excited that this is the new Flash or Green Lantern, this could easily be any number of random parts in the film. Just because it says unspecified doesn't mean we should speculate, even though speculation is fun.

I would probably put money on McNairy's role, whatever it may be, being significant enough for some dialogue but maybe not much more than that. But, you can never tell with anything coming from big studio projects these days. We will just have to wait and see and just maybe find some more details out as shooting continues.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

I hope I'm wrong and he's someone important, but...

Every time some actor gets a "sworn-to-secrecy" mystery role in a big movie, they end up being, like, a teacher in one scene (Rainn Wilson in Transformers 2), a creepy co-worker who happens to have a famous name (BJ Novak in Amazing Spider-Man 2), a hooker who hardly matters to the plot (Juno Temple in The Dark Knight Rises), or just an over-credited cameo (Michael Caine in Inception). They should just say who these people are and stop everyone from wondering.

The character most likely won't be in the film, but he would be an awesome Scarecrow.

And this movie is ,what two years away? So don`t be surprised if the next casting announcement is 'everything but the kitchen sink.'

He's working for the real Mandarin. This film isn't just the lead in for Justice League but also the DC and Marvel crossover film. Cause, you know, adding more characters to a film is always the right choice.

Give him a role comparable to William Fichtner in The Dark Knight - a handful of lines, a stare, a death - all memorable.

Here we go again. We can say for all we know it's a bit part, but really when was the last time they announced someone join the cast and it wasn't a big character? When I imagined a Batman vs Superman movie as a kid, no one else was invited

Awesome casting. He's a really good character actor and has shown his worth in Argo, Non Stop, Killing Them Softly, and Halt and Catch Fire.

I don't think he'll be playing a big character though (would make an awesome Riddler). I tend to think he'll be playing a reporter at Daily Planet or a henchman for Lex Luthor.

I doubt it's a major player. Although he does look like he would make a good Riddler.
I think he's going to be cast as one of Lex's cronies. My guess is the guy that actually does Lex's dirty work for him.

According to Latino-Review.com, he is playing Night wing. I'm hoping its false and he's playing someone else.

It's already too crowded. Hopefully its just a bit part as a reporter

Nobody wanted this movie to have more than Batman and Superman, but they keep shoveling shit onto this film. They are trying to cover a turd in sparkling superheros.
