Scoot McNairy’s role has finally been revealed after so many hints of him in trailers and set pictures. But until now, we had no idea what his link was with this movie.
When pictures started to go online with him in green socks, the rumors started of him eventually playing The Flash or Mantello. BUT, it’s none of the above says Latino review.
For people that wish to wait for the movie, don’t read any further. –SPOILERALERT –
The trailers showed a McNairy that is bound to a wheelchair with no feet and shins. This can be seen in the shot of the memorial for the battle of Metropolis and Superman shows up to a hearing of some sort.
The character that McNairy’s playing is injured by an action of Superman himself. But he’s not Jimmy Olsen. According to Latino review’s sources McNairy’s character will be testifying against Superman, which brings him as a victim in Lex Luthor’s hands. He starts a campaign against The Man Of Steel himself and it involves turning McNairy’s character in a human bomb of some sorts.
