nightwingLast night the internet was sent into a tizzy when it was reported that not only does it look like Nightwing will be in Batman vs. Superman, but Warner Bros. had Adam Driver at the top of their shortlist (click here if you missed it). If you go by Twitter it seems most folks weren’t too happy with that pick. It was said that while Driver was indeed the frontrunner right now, there were at least two other actors being considered. Well tonight it looks like those names may have been revealed.

Superhero Movie News report they’ve got a hot tip on two of the other actors in contention for the role. The news is worth passing along since the site was the first to post the rumor of Paul Rudd being eyed for Ant-Man (which has never been truly confirmed or denied), but we’ll still take this with a grain of salt for now. They say that Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl) and Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being A Wallflower) are on Warner Bros. radar for the role of Dick Grayson. The original report of the potential Nightwing role suggest the studio is looking for a “young John Hawkes” type for the former Batman sidekick, and of the two Miller fits that description the best.

If these prove to be true, it may sit easier with fans than the Driver news. While Driver is a fantastic actor and an all-around good guy, people have said he’s not the guy they picture when they think of a real life Nightwing. There are a few other actors on WB‘s list as well, so hopefully we”ll hear a few of those other names before long. So now that it’s possibly Driver, Badgley, and Miller on the list, who do you think should be stand beside Ben Affleck‘s Batman?
