A few days ado we brought you news that Batman vs. Superman was looking to add a mature Robin (aka Nightwing) to the cast and today another scoop attaches specific names to the role. According to Jeff Sneider over at The Wrap, the latest news is that Girls star Adam Driver and two other unspecified actors are up for the Nightwing role in Batman vs. Superman.
“Girls” star Adam Driver has emerged as the frontrunner to play Batman’s crime-fighting partner Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing (formerly Robin), in Zack Snyder’s superhero sequel “Batman vs. Superman,” two individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
There are two other actors up for the role, according to the scoop, but they haven’t been officially identified. With production starting very soon on the film, we’ll likely hear a lot more on it today when the Man of Steel Q&A event takes place and more is asked and learned about the movie.
But for now, it’s looking like the production is not only trying to add a long rumored Wonder Woman role, but also the first big screen incarnation of the Nightwing character, which is something that fans everywhere are intrigued to see play out.
