Adam Driver Weighs In On The NIGHTWING Rumors


nightwingLast night we told you that you could probably mark Adam Driver’s name off the list of actors in the running as Nightwing. Despite rumors that the Girls actor was Warner Bros. #1 choice for the role of Dick Grayson, he signed up for a new movie that would more than likely keep him busy during Batman vs. Superman filming. You can read that story here, but tonight Collider has asked the actor directly about the rumors and whether or not there was any discussion.

While talking about his new movie Inside Llewyn Davis, Driver was asked if he was a fan of Batman and Superman. Sensing where things were going, he laughed but admitted he was actually a big fan. Then he was asked if there was any truth to the recent rumors. He said “No! Not that I know of. No, no.” He told Steven Weintraub if he found out he should definitely let him know because he had no clue. He did say that all these rumors were very flattering though:

It’s intensely flattering as you can imagine. It’s Batman and Superman, who doesn’t want to be involved with something that’s…not only of that scale, but who those characters are. That’s an incredible world to be in for a bit. Who wouldn’t want to do that?

So with these comments and the recent news about his new role, it looks like Driver really isn’t in talks for Nightwing. Do you think he’s telling the truth (I do) or is he playing the patented false denial game?
