Just How Grounded Is BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE? Scoot McNairy Weighs In

We've heard an awful lot about how Warner Bros.' upcoming DC Comics slate is going to be darker and grittier than what Marvel Studios has to offer, but just how grounded will Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Hit the jump for comments on that from star Scoot McNairy...

Warner Bros. have really been emphasising the fact that their upcoming DC Comics movies will stand apart from Marvel thanks to a darker and more grounded tone, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Scoot McNairy has now weighed in to (unsurprisingly) emphasise that. Who the actor is playing remains unknown, though the popular theory is that he'll be a Jimmy Olsen severely wounded following the events of Man of Steel. Whether or not that's correct remains to be seen, but as someone who gravitates towards memorable roles, the character actor's opinions can surely be trusted on this one. "This is the superhero film that is more grounded in reality than any of the other ones," he tells We Got This Covered. "It’s a comic book movie, yes, but it’s very, very grounded." Do you think this approach will work for Batman v Superman? Sound off below...
