Already a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to his appearance in “All Hail the King,” Scoot McNairy is headed to the Distinguished Competition. Deadline reports that the Argo star will play an unspecified role in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Also starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Ray Fisher, the DC Comics film brings together the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight — for the first time on the big screen.
McNairy is currently in the theaters in The Rover opposite Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. He’s also starring on AMC’s new series “Halt and Catch Fire” and will again star opposite Affleck in the upcoming Gone Girl.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters on May 6, 2016.
