Scoot McNairy's Batman Vs. Superman Role Revealed

Set pics from Batman Vs. Superman featuring Scoot McNairy revealed the actor wearing CGI-socks leading to speculation he might be playing The Flash or Metallo.

Now word comes from an extra on set that Scoot McNairy is playing Jimmy Olsen in Batman Vs. Superman.

TheDevilsEye.com has it from an extra that McNairy is playing Jimmy Olsen who was injured in the battle of Metropolis from Man of Steel:

"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."

Jimmy Olsen fans should be happy as it was thought Zack Snyder was going in a different direction in Man of Steel with "Jenny Olsen," which turned out to be not true.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 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.
