Adam Driver is apparently the #1 contender for the role of Dick Grayson (a.k.a. Nightwing) for Zack Snyder’s BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN.
The plot is being kept under wraps, but we do know the film will center around a team up between Batman and Superman. Henry Cavill is set to reprise his role as the Man of Steel, while Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne reprise their respective “Man of Steel” roles. Ben Affleck will star alongside Cavill as Batman. Snyder is helming from a script penned by David S. Goyer.
Driver was last seen in Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha” and Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln.” He also stars as Adam Sackler on the HBO comedy series “Girls.” He’ll next be seen in the Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis”, John Curran’s “Tracks” and the comedy “While We’re Young” which marks a reteaming of him and Baumbach.
Driver is repped by Gersh.
