‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Gains Ben Affleck’s ‘Argo’ Castmate

Aww Scoot, Scoot!

File this one under “things that pretty cool.” Amazingly named and talented actorfella, Scoot McNairy, is set to appear in the Batffleck-fronted “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” And the studio’s mums-the-word attitude on whom he might play has us even more intrigued. Could the “Argo” and “Non-Stop” actor be playing one of the big baddies? Ooh, we sort of hope so!

With so many of the main roles locked and loaded — Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill reprising his Super-dude role, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred — in addition to “Man of Steel” returners Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane, the film does seem to be lacking an antagonist that would be a worthy of both Batman AND Superman, Right? (Sorry, Lex.) Which begs the question: who in DC Universe might McNairy take on?

The film heads to theaters May 6, 2016, so it’s still a ways off — but still, the addition of McNairy is an exciting one, don’t you think? If it were up to you, who would he play? Let’s speculate together in the comments.

Too much exuberance for one person. Follow her on Twitter @alicialutes.
