RUMOR: Scoot McNairy To Play Jimmy Olsen In 'Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice'!!

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

Looks like we can finally end the argument over who actor Scoot McNairy will be playing in the upcoming Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice!!  It appears we finally have our answer!

According to the scoop masters over at HeroicHollywood:

Last year a website called The Devils Eyes claimed that the actor is playing Jimmy Olsen, a well recognized character from the comics who is an investigative reporter and photo-journalist at the Daily Planet, as well as friend of Superman, but with an interesting twist. The character was present during the Black Zero event and lost his legs after they were pinned under falling building rubble. According to our sources, that information is indeed accurate.

We got our first glimpse of the character during the beginning of the comic-con trailer that was released a couple of weeks ago, where Superman was called in court following the climatic events of Man of Steel.

He has even been spotted in the Batman V. Superman trailer, see it below:
