Homey From ‘Girls’ Is Probably Gonna Be Nightwing

Adam Driver Nightwing


Pretending you enjoy having sex with Lena Dunham takes serious acting ability, so Adam Driver is apparently on top of something he actually might like: the list of actors to play Robin in Batman vs. Superman. or Nightwing. Whatever, nerds.

“Girls” star Adam Driver has emerged as the frontrunner to play Batman’s crime-fighting partner Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing (formerly Robin), in Zack Snyder’s superhero sequel “Batman vs. Superman,” two individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap. Warner Bros. had no comment. Driver boasts a unique look that fits the rumored description of Nightwing — Grayson’s post-Robin alter-ego — as a “young John Hawkes,” as first reported by Latino Review. At 6’3″, Driver could hold his own against 6’4″ Ben Affleck, who will play an older and world-weary Batman. A source tells TheWrap that at least two other actors may be in the mix to play Grayson, the Caped Crusader’s former sidekick, who’s been estranged from Bruce Wayne for years in the movie, according to Latino Review.

Per SGA rules, I guess this movie had to cast at least one unattractive person for the movie, so Nightwing could have been played by anybody from Girls really. Oh, that's right. Lena Dunham is forcing a mirror to humankind to challenge our perceptions of beauty or whatever. Pretty sure it's not working.
