'Batman V Superman' Set Photos Tease Scoot McNairy's Role & More

Batman V Superman - Ben Affleck & Henry Cavill

Filming on director Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice keeps chugging along, with Ben Affleck portraying a middle-aged Caped Crusader who squares off against Henry Cavill's younger (and less experienced) Man of Steel. However, the latest photos to have leaked from the set move the spotlight onto some of the movie's supporting players - including one whose mystery role in the superhero blockbuster continues to be a popular topic of discussion for speculation among fans.

Images of Cavill in his Superman costume (albeit, covered up with a black cloak) on the Batman V Superman set have popped up online recently, courtesy of Just Jared. More interesting, arguably, are the set images for the movie that feature such actors as Holly Hunter - whose unannounced role was created "specifically for her" according to Snyder - and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine), who is reported to be playing Mercy Graves - the bodyguard for the film's version of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).

Okamoto's uniform in Batman V Superman, as pictured below, does seem befitting of the Mercy Graves character, while Hunter likewise seems dressed to play a senator, as has been rumored in the past. The last person who is shown below is Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire), the increasingly popular character actor who also costarred in Affleck's Oscar-winning feature Argo.
