Adam Driver Denies Nightwing Rumors

The rumor began last week that “Girls” star Adam Driver was being eyed for the role of Dick Grayson in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film, and it now looks like that may not be the case anymore. Speaking with Collider, Driver was quite adamant that he hasn’t heard anything about this particular 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.”

Though he did have many nice things to say about just being rumored for 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 originated from TheWrap, mentioned that two other actors might be in the mix for the role as well. Who do you think should play Nightwing in the film?

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.
