It’s being reported that Girls star Adam Driver is one of three actors in the running for the role of Nightwing, the former Robin and STUDLIEST SUPERHERO EVER, in the upcoming Zack Snyder-helmed Batman vs Superman movie. According to the Latino Review, Warner Bros producers were looking for “a young John Hawkes-type” to play the role, which will find Grayson and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) at odds as the film starts. The trade publication was not privy to the other two names being considered, but hmmmm. Adam Driver as Nightwing? Yes, please. Not quite as classically handsome as I’ve always pictured Dick Grayson – a little “rough trade” for a the boy who grew up at Wayne Manor – but I like the idea of him being “quirky-hot” as opposed to just “hot-hot.” I could get used to this idea. What do YOU think? (Photo of Adam: Pacific Coast News)
