A little over a year away from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and we still don’t know much about who’s in and who’s out in terms of cast outside of a few characters. Rumors arrive more and more everyday, but few of the actors are talking.

One who is talking, albeit cryptically, is Scoot McNairy, who is famous in terms of BVS as he was shown on set with a pair of green stockings, representing green screen work most likely. The actor chatted about his upcoming role in the film, and gave a very…wordy description of the character he’s portraying.

“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,” McNairy tells USA Today. “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.”

Yeah, that divulges nothing, like at all! Lol. It does give a sense that his character is deep, or at least complicated, we’ll have to wait and see who he is portraying in the movie though. Any guesses?

    I reckon the next thing he’ll say is “It’s not a huge part. I just play this pilot guy. Not many lines. Though, in the next movie, I’ll have more lines such as this one weird line that goes ‘In brightest day…’.”

      Hmmmmmmm… we could see that, though something about him just cries ‘Riddler’ to me (Marc)
