Scoot McNairy, who will play a still unnamed role in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, spoke to Schmoes Know a bit about how the role has affected him and his career.
McNairy talked a bit about what it's like to go from television to what will surely be on of the biggest blockbuster films of all time:
"As far as you know budget has no bearing on the character, so mostly so prepping for this has been like how I approach every character I've done, and they're all different so you kind of tailor it to the job and the character. But you know this is just a big one man, this is probably the biggest one I've ever been on so the only thing is the bigger the film is, the slower the process is. It's been nice to go from a TV show that's so fast moving and you know you're talking fast paced like popping 50 pages out in 8 days, and this has been great to going back to shooting like a page a day. So you know it's been great man, it's been really awesome."
He also explained that, despite having worked with the film's Batman, Ben Aflleck, in the past, Affleck had nothing to do with McNairy being cast in Batman vs. Superman:
"No I auditioned for it you know and met with Zack Snyder and after some time went by I get a phone call and am asked to do this part you know? I was browsing through Home Depot and I'm getting some lumber you know, and I get a phone call and he says, "Hi this is Zack Snyder" and I'm just like, "No way! Absolutely If you'd have me, I'd love to be there." So that was a really awesome phone call."
He would reveal any details about his role, but McNairy did say that he's looking to hang out in the DC Universe for some time:
"Yeah well… I hope to be a part of the DC Universe for a while as well."
Pictures from the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice have shown McNairy wearing green socks for digital editing, leading many to speculate that he is actually playing The Flash, with the green socks there for super-speed effects to be added in post-production. This comment will surely bolster those rumors further.
