Scoot McNairy Added to Batman v Superman Cast Because His Name Sounds Whimsical

The producers felt that the addition of McNairy's name to the cast could help lighten the tone of the grim and gritty killfest.

Deadline is reporting that Scoot McNairy will join the cast of 2015's Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice in an unknown role. Warner Bros. has not confirmed the casting, and no one knows who McNairy will play, but sources tell The Outhouse that the actor was cast "mainly because his name sounds funny."

"Wasn't he in Fargo or something?"  said excutive producer David Goyer when asked for comment. "Or maybe it was Argo. I dunno. We'll find something for him to do."

"In any case, his name cracks me up," added Goyer, known for a refined sense of humor that includes calling Marvel superhero She-Hulk a "big green porn star" and fans of his movies virgins. "Scoot. Heh! It reminds me a dog scraping his butt on the carpet."

"Huh huh," laughed Goyer. "Dog butts."

According to our sources, executives at Warner felt that the credits were lacking whimsy, with serious names like Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, and that McNairy's name would "spruce things up" and compliment the alliterative Gal Gadot nicely. Together with Gadot, McNairy's name will provide a lighthearted counterpoint to all of the neck snapping and city destroying sure to occur in the film.

"Our first choice wasn't available, unfortunately," said director Zack Snyder. "Yahoo Serious is a very busy man, it seems."

Stay tuned to The Outhouse as we try to stretch future vague casting reports to more than a single sentence with nonsense like this article.
