New Set Photos from ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ May Reveal Scoot McNairy’s Secret Role

By August 19, 2014

Comic Book Movie pointed us to some new set photos from Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that were taken by Twitters users, including “BananaDoc,” who has been supplying a steady stream of set pics from Detroit. Take a look at them below:





That last photo shows actor Scoot McNairy, who was hired in a mysterious role a couple of months ago. But it only shows him from the waist up. The most important photo in this set is this one:


Those green socks are the color of a green screen, and have led many to speculate that it means that McNairy could be playing The Flash in the film. It’s a good guess, because I can’t think of many other possibilities for reasons why the production would require an actor to wear socks that color aside from the obvious: that visual effects are going to come into play. But we still have a long time to wait until this movie hits theaters, because it doesn’t arrive until May 6th, 2016.

What do you think? Is Scoot McNairy playing The Flash? Let us know in the comments below!
