That Dude From ‘Girls’ Might Be Nightwing
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?”
