Ever since Monsters, Scoot McNairy has become an increasingly popular face for directors looking to fill important supporting roles, such as in Killing Them Softly, Argo, Non-Stop, 12 Years A Slave and the upcoming Gone Girl. Now he’s got a new role, as Deadline reports he’s signed up for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
However nobody at Warner Bros. has confirmed the casting and there’s no news on who he might be playing. That could mean the versatile McNairy is just joining to play a small side-role, but as little news has been released about the plot he could be a more major character. Some are speculating that the fact his casting was announced after a month of shooting has already taken place, means he could have a cameo in Batman v Superman, but will become more important in future DC movies such as Justice League.
McNairy joined Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Ray Fisher and Tao Okamoto.
Zack Snyder is directing from a script by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer. It’ll be in cinemas May 6th, 2016.
