Which character is Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire, Argo) playing in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? New evidence has come out to support a theory that McNairy might be playing Barry Allen (aka The Flash) in the upcoming film. Learn more about the Scoot McNairy Flash connection after the jump.
Update on August 29: A new report downplays the Flash supposition, and instead suggests a different but still relatively major DC character. Potential spoilers follow.

Years back, there was a real divide between DC and Marvel. DC was the stoic old guard, Marvel the young upstart. Despite the fact that the ’60s saw some incredibly wacky characters grace the pages of DC comics, the conception amongst comics fans, especially when modern comics fandom came of age in the ’80s and ’90s, was still that DC was the “serious” house and Marvel the playground.
While it’s not a hard-and-fast rule, that characterization has been carried forward into the films produced by DC and Warner Bros., and those from Marvel Studios. Inspired by Christopher Nolan’s films (which were inspired by the wave of ’80s comics that included Frank Miller’s vision of Batman), DC’s films are monochromatic and relatively grim. Zack Snyder isn’t the guy one turns to for “fun.” Marvel’s movies are colorful and unabashedly fun.
Now a report says there’s an actual “no jokes in DC movies” mandate at Warner Bros., which could enforce the differences between DC and Marvel movies in a set manner. (Update: While two sources support the “no jokes” argument, Seth Rogen says otherwise.)

Okay, so as I said yesterday, we usually try to focus on entertainment news and avoid celebrity stories, but the Star Wars Episode 7 cast and crew taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge felt entertainment news-worthy enough to feature on the site. I honestly thought that was the last of those videos we’d feature on /Film but now the comic book superheroes are taking the challenge in full costume: Henry Cavill and Amy Adams both took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on the set of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in their film costumes. I’m going to call it the Superman Ice Bucket Challenge.
Thats right, Cavill is wearing his complete Man of Steel Superman suit and Adams is dressed as reporter Lois Lane. We absolutely needed to share this video in case you missed it. And one Ice Bucket Challenge is nothing for Superman, so they give our favorite alien superhero something extra. Watch the Superman ice bucket challenge video embedded after the jump now.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
While photos of the main heroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been released, we have yet to see images of the heavy. That would be Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. We’ve heard rumors about how the character plays into the story, having to do with the destruction in Man of Steel, but we hadn’t heard how he plans to wreak havoc on Batman and Superman themselves. We now have an idea thanks to quotes from an extra on the film and another site.
If true, these are massive, massive Batman v Superman spoilers so beware. Read More »
