Adam Driver is front runner to Play Dick Grayson in ” Batman vs Superman”….Rumor
The Wrap is reporting that 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 toldTheWrap.
Warner Bros. had no comment.
Driver boasts a unique look that fits the rumored description of Nightwing — Grayson’s post-Robin alter-ego — as a “young John Hawkes,” as first reported by Latino Review. At 6’3″, Driver could hold his own against 6’4″ Ben Affleck, who will play an older and world-weary Batman.
A source tells TheWrap that at least two other actors may be in the mix to play Grayson, the Caped Crusader’s former sidekick, who’s been estranged from Bruce Wayne for years in the movie, according to Latino Review.
