You Can Probably Take Adam Driver’s Name Out Of The Running For NIGHTWING


nightwingThe internet got worked up almost as bad as it did when Batfleck was originally announced when the news hit that Girls star Adam Driver was Warner Bros. top choice for the role of DickNightwingGrayson in Batman vs. Superman. Of course everything is a rumor until it’s official, but that didn’t calm people down.Twitter went absolutely crazy. Well tonight another piece of Driver news has hit that may just put a damper on the whole Nightwing thing.

Deadline reports that Driver has signed on to star in director Saverio Costanzo‘s film Hungry Hearts opposite Alba Rohrwacher. There was no date announced for the movie in the casting report, but from reading a few different sources it seems filming on that project would begin relatively soon. Now this doesn’t completely shut the book on Driver if the part in Batman vs. Superman is just a small supporting rile, but it does make things seem a little more unlikely. There are more names attached to Nightwing, if he’s even really in the movie, so WB has no shortage of actors to choose from. Do you hope Driver becomes Nightwing or would you be happy for someone else to take up the mantle?
