Adam Driver‘s already had to pretend to bang a tattooed sack of potatoes on HBO which, in my book, is all the experience a man needs to play an older version of Batman’s boy sidekick. “In this scene, The Joker has you held hostage, so try to think about all those times Lena Dunham was naked and, good, perfect, you’re already screaming in terror. ACTION!” TheWrap reports:

“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.

“You’re either with me or against me, Robin, which is it?”
“It’s Nightwing, and I jerk off on girls’ tits now.”
“Pfft. I was doing that with Catwoman while you were still in the circus.”
“No, you weren’t.”
“No, I wasn’t. Hey, want to go to an orphanage?”

  1. Walter White

    That is hilarious. Like Afleck wasn’t bad enough. What a train wreck.

  2. That guy looks like a teleporter accident involving Keanu and a mandrill. A mandrill is a specific type of monkey. what were you thinking, homo?

  3. J-Sin

    Nightwing is supposed to be a ladies man. This guy doesn’t even look like he can get a dog to come to him.

  4. Batman versus Superman? Superman was a superhero from outerspace. Batman was a guy with a utility belt. I picture the movie going like this…

    Scene 1: Superman punches Batman so hard his head explodes.

    Roll Credits

  5. I guess what I’m trying to say here is: who gives a shit who plays Nightwing, when no one is going to see this stupid excuse for a sequel? Batman versus Rohrschach? OK, that could make some sense. Nightwing versus Nightowl? I might be down for that. Superman versus Wolverine? Could be intriguing.

  6. Better to be Nightwing than Always Nighttime with Wings.

  7. Vote for Pedro.

  8. That’s the face of a man who’s seen unspeakable things. Lena Dunham naked up close and personal. I bet he has an epic coke problem.

  9. Adam Driver as Nightwing in Superman v. Batman? I don’t see it. Adam Driver as Douchey Guy #2 in Adrien Brody v. Adam Driver in a Gillette commerical? Judging by the photo, I’m guessing it’s already in post-production.

  10. B!

    I would cosign the fuck out of Lena Dunham as Clayface, or Penguin.

    Too mean! Lena Dunham is playing a character–just like any woman, if she wants to look nice, she can–and if she wants to depict a self absorbed immature marginally attractive character, she can. Stop confusing the character she plays with her. As you have all seen, even Kate Upton looks blotchy and blah without make up. Give Lena props for what she’ll do for her character instead of having every camera angle lit to her best, soft lens, make up people working round the clock while wearing only flattering clothes.

  12. Please, not this guy for Nightwing. He looks like a claymation version of Keanu Reeves.

  13. Ben Affleck is not 6’4″, he’s 6’2″. Sorry it annoys me when Hollywood actors exaggerate their height. they always do this.

  14. chuckles

    I vote yes. If you watched the show you’d see this kid is intense.

  15. Freebie

    I agree with chuckles. His work is on Girls is amazing and although he’s not mainstream handsome, there’s something about him that mesmerizing and sexy.
