It’s learned that Scoot McNairy has been cast in Batman Vs. Superman in an unknown role.
Deadline first reported the news.
Scoot McNairy also had roles with Ben Affleck in Argo and is featured with Affleck in the upcoming Gone Girl.
Latino Review is suggesting that McNairy may play Nightwing, as the website first reported a rumor about Nightwing being in the movie.
Interestingly enough, this follows the news that Steven McQueen most likely won’t be playing Nightwing in Arrow as the actor recently backed off stating he was going to play the character. It’s possible WB didn’t give Arrow the greenlight to use Nightwing because of Batman Vs. Superman.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto in new character roles for the film. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.
