‘Dawn of Justice’ rumors on Scoot McNairy’s Jimmy Olsen

Fans may still be asking who Scoot McNairy is playing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but after many rumors of Metallo, it’s pretty clear that he’s playing a version of Jimmy Olsen, presumably maimed during the during the final battle in Man of Steel.

A new report from Latino Review cements this as fact and gives fans more insight in the big news.

McNairy is Olsen and “he got his legs wrecked by Metropolis debris” but Latino Review went further, stating that Olsen becomes a puppet in a villainous plot against Superman:

According to our sources, McNairy’s wheelchair-bound character will be brought in to testify against Superman to the U.S. Senate, but also becomes a victim of Lex Luthor’s campaign against the Man of Steel. One of Luthor’s schemes in the movie involves turning McNairy’s character into a human bomb of sorts, radicalizing him, in an attempt to get him close to Superman and to hurt him.

Henry Cavill returns as Superman opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman to square off in Dawn of Justice, which introduces Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and promises a cameo of Jason Momoa as Aquaman.

Remember Jena Malone, like McNairy’s role are still under wraps (rumored to be Barbara Gordon and Jimmy Olsen), so there’s still plenty to learn.

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder returns and directs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from a script by Chris Terrio and David Goyer.

Dawn of Justice also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch, Diane Lane as Martha Kent and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.

One of the new international trailers is below, but it doesn’t really offer anything new.

Batman v Superman opens on March 25, 2016.
