Adam Driver Denies Nightwing Rumors

Last week rumors were swirling that “Girls” star, Adam Driver, was being looked at for the role of Dick Grayson in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, tentatively titled, Batman vs. Superman. However, during a recent interview with Collider, Driver denies the rumors saying that he hadn’t heard anything in regards to the role.

When asked if there was any truth to the rumors, Driver said,

“No. Not that I know of, no. If you find out, let me know, then I’ll know.”

Driver also added how nice it was that people were thinking he deserved the part.

“That’s like intensely flattering as you can imagine. I mean, it’s Batman and Superman, who doesn’t want to be involved in something not only of that scale but of who those characters are. That’s an incredible world to be able to be in for a bit. Like who wouldn’t want to do that?”

The original story, which was posted on TheWrap, mentioned that two other actors might be in the mix for the role as well. I hope that this is true because it allows me to pretend that Joseph Gordon Levitt might still be considered for the role. (I know that isn’t the case, but I keep dreaming.)

Batman vs. Superman will feature the return of Henry Cavill as Superman, facing off against Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, the Zack Snyder-directed film will hit theaters on July 17, 2015.

Adam Driver Rumored for Dick Grayson Role in Batman vs. Superman

Fans are incredibly curious about what to expect out of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman. Currently rumors are swirling that Adam Driver is the frontrunner  for the role of Dick Grayson in the feature. Grayson is known best as Bruce Wayne’s young ward and sidekick masked crimefighter Robin (and later Nightwing.)

Driver is most known for starring on the HBO series, “Girls.” He was also seen in the films Lincoln and Frances Ha. He can next be seen in Joel and Ethan Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis, set to open in theaters December 13. His casting rumor is on the heels of news that three actresses are also testing for the rumored role of Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman.

Batman vs. Superman will feature the return of Henry Cavill as Superman, facing off against Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne. There is no confirmed reveal of what the film’s exact storyline will be. Also a full cast list has not been released.

Personally, I would cast Joseph Gordon Levitt as Nightwing as he had his perfect opening for the role at the end of The Dark Knight Rises. What a missed opportunity.

The highly anticipated film hits theaters on July 17, 2015.
