A mystery has surfaced thanks to an image of Scoot McNairy on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. A week or so ago, an image surfaced of Scoot McNairy on the set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice wearing dress clothes, but with green socks. The socks are a “green screen” for his lower legs which will be replaced with CGI in post-production. There was lots of speculation that had him as The Flash, or possibly Metallo.
Well now we might know his role. Jimmy Olsen. According to a tip that the website The Devils Eyes received, McNairy is playing Olsen, but with a “twist.”
“Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen, but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of Zod vs Superman. His legs where pinned under falling building rubble and that caused him to lose the legs. He now walks with the use of two prosthetic legs.” The source goes on to add “He doesn’t blame Superman for it [his loss of legs]. He feels grateful that Superman saved the world.”
So what do you think? This obviously seems much more logical than The Flash or Metallo speculation.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, will be directed by Zack Snyder, will star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, along with Laurence Fishburne and Amy Adams reprising their Man Of Steel roles. It is slated to arrive in theatres on May 6, 2016. (Source: The Devils Eyes, via CBM)
