Tonight the plot thickens because now we got ourselves a name! According to our pal Jeff Sneider over at The Wrap, Adam Driver, best known for playing Hannah's boyfriend on HBO's Girls, is up for the "young John Hawkes" role that is currently casting in the movie which sources believe is Dick Grayson/Nightwing.
Besides Girls, Adam Driver has worked with Clint Eastwood on J. Edgar, Steven Spielberg on Lincoln and the Coen brothers on Inside Llewyn Davis. Driver is certainly an actor on the come up and I dig him. He has the physicality for Nightwing which according to rumor is estranged from Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne. Just like in The Dark Knight.
Tomorrow will certainly be interesting when Zack Snyder does that Q&A in the morning with Kevin Smith. Let's see who is going to ask the Nightwing question.
What do you folks think? Sound off below and tell us who else you can possibly see as Nightwing?
Warner Bros. will drop Batman vs. Superman on July 17, 2015.
