Actor Scoot McNairy is joining the cast of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in mystery role.
Since the film’s announcement, there have been very few details about the upcoming DC Comics adventure Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
In fact, for the longest time, we had no idea who would be taking on the role of the Caped Crusader himself.
Now, what was now veiled in such incredible secrecy is slowly starting to come into the light.
According to Deadline, Halt and Catch Fire star Scoot McNairy will be joining the ever expanding cast of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Unfortunately, as we have come to expect on a project like this, no one at Warner Bros. will give an official conformation on the casting nor will they divulge just who the actor will be playing.
This is seemingly becoming a pattern when it comes to this particular film. Last week, it was announced that Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa would be taking on the role of Aquaman in the new film; however, when the actor made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live he played coy and refused to even confirm the casting.
The good news is, and in some cases bad news, is that the film doesn’t officially release in theaters until the middle of 2016. This means there is more than enough time for all the casting announcements to be made and/or clarified, and for fans to find that one snippet of information that we have waited so very long for; a hint as to where the new story will take us.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is being directed by Man of Steel director Zack Snyder. The script for the film is being penned by Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio based off of a story put together by Snyder and The Dark Knight storyteller David S. Goyer.
Of course, none of this would be possible without Bob Kane and Bill Finger, who are responsible for the creation of Batman, and Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, who are responsible for the creation of the man of steel himself, Superman.
The film stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as Batman and Superman respectively. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Amy Adams, Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, and many more.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to be released on May 6, 2016.
