EXCLUSIVE: Explosive News On Who Scoot McNairy Is Playing In BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE [Spoiler]

– by Kellvin Chavez

The debate over Scoot McNairy's role in BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is an old one. From early on in the film's production, leaked set photos showed the actor in green knee-high socks, the kind usually used for digital replacement or deletion.

Early speculation centered around what would replace those green socks. Some thought it would be metal legs revealing McNairy as Metallo, whereas others thought the socks would be used as reference to make his legs a blur (Barry Allen, anyone?).

We here at Latino-Review now have the answer to the Scoot McNairy question, though we're compelled to give an obligatory SPOILER ALERT for those who don't wish to know the answer before the film's release.

SPOILER ALERT!

The trailers for DAWN OF JUSTICE have shown McNairy's character without shins, and feet bound to a wheelchair. You can see this in the shots by the memorial for the Battle of Metropolis, and when Superman shows up at what looks to be a Senate hearing. 

Recently, rumors have resurfaced that McNairy is playing Superman comics character Jimmy Olsen, who was wounded when Superman took on Zod at the end of MAN OF STEEL. While part of that is correct--that the character was injured as a by product of Superman's actions--Scoot McNairy is NOT playing Jimmy Olsen.

According to our sources, McNairy's wheelchair-bound character will be brought in to testify against Superman to the U.S. Senate, but also becomes a victim of Lex Luthor's campaign against the Man of Steel. One of Luthor's schemes in the movie involves turning McNairy's character into a human bomb of sorts, radicalizing him, in an attempt to get him close to Superman and to hurt him.

Since McNairy's character may very well be destined to go boom, it is probably better that his character isn't Jimmy Olsen. That'd be a bit of a waste for such a fan-favorite character.
