Sorry Justin Bieber! It looks like you’re not on Warner Brothers’ wish list to play the role of Nightwing in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’. We previously reported that it was RUMORED that the former sidekick would make an appearance in the movie (possibly along with a certain Amazing Amazon). In this movie, Nightwing has had a falling out with Batman (Ben Affleck) and they haven’t spoken in years. Presumably, the events in the film will draw them back together for some reason. (Perhaps the discovery of a god-like alien living among them?)
Though everyone associated with this movie is keeping their lips sealed publicly, it sounds as if Dick Grayson’s involvement is inching closer to a fact, as casting rumors are now surfacing. Three contenders appear to be in the running. They are…
It was previously reported that ‘Girls’ actor Adam Driver was in the running. (Oh man, I hope he’s nothing like his character on that show, because I HATE him on ‘Girls’!) That’s… one idea.
The second possibility seems a bit better suited, at least in my opinion, Penn Badgley formerly from The CW’s ‘Gossip Girl’. He previously worked with Warner Brothers on his film ‘Greetings From Tim Buckley’. Unfortunately, he hasn’t really done much in terms of action, so no telling how well he’ll be suited for playing the nimble acrobat Dick Grayson. But Badgley is apparently a comic book fan, so that helps.
And then we have Ezra Miller, whose biggest role to date was as Patrick in the movie adaptation of the novel ‘The Perks of Being A Wallflower’. He doesn’t have a huge number of roles under his belt yet and the role as Patrick doesn’t necessarily scream “Former Robin.” He did have a commanding presence in that film, however. He’s the youngest of the three candidates, which may actually make sense if he were actually a “Boy Wonder” at some point in the past few years.
So… while the Nightwing appearance is unconfirmed at this time… it would be pretty cool. So out of these three, Adam Driver, Penn Badgley and Ezra Miller, who do you think is the right fit to play Nightwing/Dick Grayson? (Heck, if we’re looking at ‘Perks’ actors why not Logan Lerman? He has action experience from the ‘Percy Jackson’ movies and he’s way cuter than any of these three. Trust me, if you’re playing Dick Grayson, THAT’S a factor that needs to be weighed!) Sound off with your picks below!
