Which Superhero Is Adam Driver From 'Girls' ThisClose To Playing In The 'Batman Vs. Superman' Movie?
Our dream of seeing the sexy, deep-voiced, Emmy-nominated Adam Driver (Adam on Girls) in tight latex might materialize into reality in 2015 if a report concerning the latest round of casting for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie hold true.
According to the Wrap, Adam is being eyed to play Nightwing, the adult version of Batman's former sidekick, Robin, and one of DC's most popular superheroes.
“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 toldTheWrap.
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.
Well, casting Adam to play this role could certainly help WB redeem itself after that whole Ben Affleck as Batman controversy, in our eyes!
