The internet was ablaze when the first set images of Scoot McNairy hit the net from Batman Vs. Superman revealing McNairy wearing CGI-socks.
Is Scoot McNairy playing Jimmy Olsen? Nightwing? Jason Todd? Metallo? And what's with the socks? Does that mean Scoot McNairy's character is possibly missing his legs (cut off by The Joker)?
While we still don't know the identify of McNairy's character, the actor recently spoke with USA Today about Batman Vs. Superman. Obviously Scoot McNairy can't offer much, but he does offer it was an emotional experience and also lots of fun.
Man, I would love to spend hours with you about it but I don’t know if you’d see me in another movie if I did.”
“It’s definitely 100% a character I’ve never played and I can’t speak too freely on it, but yeah, getting into that thing was definitely something I had to wrap my head around emotionally in order to play that character. But with that being said, I had a lot of fun doing it when I was in the process of shooting on it — my head was in a different place but I’m really excited to see how it turns out and what they do with it and see the film.”
