Excuse me, who is a serious contender to play Nightwing in Batman vs. Superman?
Well, if this news is true then they may have found him...
The Wrap is reporting that GIRLS star Adam Driver is a serious contender and has emerged as the frontrunner for the role of Nightwing. SAY WHAT? Now I'm not as familiar with him so maybe this is why the choice is so unexpected but he doesn't exactly have an action track record either. This doesn't necessarily mean anything. The studio must see some serious potential in this guy. Not to mention that he's been in several acclaimed films like LINCOLN, FRANCES HA, and INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS. So the guys has some chops to speak of.
He's not the only one though. The site mentions that two other actors are also in the mix to play the character of Dick Grayson who has been estranged from his mentor, Batman for some time.
The site also seconds that Olga Kurylenko is the frontrunner for the leading female role which will serve as a love interest to Batman. The other two ladies in second and third are Gal Gadot (FAST & FURIOUS 6) and Elodie Yung (G.I. JOE: RETALIATION).
Thoughts on all this?
