Henry Cavill has been spotted along with new cast members Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto on the Detroit set of Batman v Superman.

Batman-News and Superhero Report have revealed an intriguing photo from the Detroit set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which hints that Scoot McNairy may be playing The Flash. Take a look at the image below, then read on for more information.

When the actor first joined the production in June, his exact role was not revealed, but the first set photos of the actor from earlier this month had many speculating that he is playing Barry Allen/The Flash. The green material covering up the bottom halves of his legs certainly lends more credence to the actor playing Barry Allen, since this indicates there will be post-production work done on his legs. It's also possible that he may be playing the villainous Metallo, or maybe even a paraplegic. At this point, it's anybody's guess until we hear anything official from DC or Warner Bros.

We also have another report from Badass Digest which reveals that, according to a well-placed source, The Flash does appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. By the end of the movie, a Justice League will be assembled that includes Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (possibly Jason Momoa), The Flash (possibly Scoot McNairy) and Cyborg (possibly Callan Mulvey, whose role hasn't been revealed).

The site's sources didn't confirm that Scoot McNairy will in fact play Barry Allen, but these photos appear to provide the latest evidence that he will be The Flash.

In related news, following the first look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent and the official Superman photo, we have a new shot of the actor on the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set in his Superman costume, although most of it is covered under a large robe as he walks through the set. In addition, we also have more photos that give us our first look at new cast members Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto on the set, along with a new photo of Scoot McNairy. Take a look at the images below, then read on for more information.

What do you think of these new photos? Are you convinced Scoot McNairy is playing The Flash in Batman v Superman? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

    Some how I don't believe it, lets wait and see.
    MW sometimes get it right but not all the time and I feel they could interview more actors and directors besides reporting some fake news. There's at least over 300 productions being done per year and MW comes up with nothing... spread your wings MW.
    Reign, Transporter TV series is in season 2, The Strain and countless others need to be promoted.

    @themoviefanatic MW is just assuming. And we know what happens when you assume. He could be playing any wide variety of characters.

    This is just a possibility, but in the first original Justice League story line, the Justice League started without Batman or Superman. This Could possibly mean that maybe in this film the Justice League already exists, but Batman and Superman are not yet a part of it. They're too busy trying to...fight out their differences?

    @superman81 The way I have to change my avatar is I go to the my profile image section, and then I change it on there and sometimes it doesn't change unless I keep on try over and over again until it finally changes. That's how messed up that part of our accounts are on movieweb, that the folks in charge of movieweb need to fix eventually if they haven't already.

    @themoviefanatic Scoot is a very good actor and could pull this off but I do not see him as the Flash. I think his role might be bigger than just this film but I could see him being Metallo or another member of the JL but i doubt it will be Flash

    He could also be metallo but I prefer the guy who is currently playing the flash right now. It would feel really weird to me when two different guys are playing the flash especially if the flash make it to season 3 when this comes out.

    I would honestly prefer a more well-known actor for the role as the Flash.

    Or he could be playing a citizen who lost his legs in the Superman and Zod battle.
