The second significant rumored character is Nightwing. Not familiar with the character? Well Dick Grayson, Bruce Wayne’s ward who becomes Batman’s costumed side-kick Robin, grows up and parts ways with the Dark Knight to become his own man, and his new alias is Nightwing. Many Nightwing fans actually like that character more than Batman, and there’s plenty to look forward to seeing from him in live-action films.

Four names thus far are being thrown around, but Adam Driver (GIRLS, LINCOLN) is said to be the front runner for the part.

Though his character on the hit HBO show GIRLS probably doesn’t have anything in common with the Dick Grayson character he’s being linked to currently, his performance on the show gives you some idea that he throws himself into a character and is quite talented.

Other names being tossed around are Penn Badgley (GOSSIP GIRL, MARGIN CALL), Ezra Miller (PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER) and Matt Bomer (WHITE COLLAR, MAGIC MIKE).

We will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on all aspects of the upcoming Superman Vs Batman film, so we’ll keep you informed of anything we hear, even if it’s a debunking of something we’ve reported here.
