Rumor: Nightwing to be in ‘Batman vs. Superman’

Posted: November 7, 2013 in Movies

Another day, another rumor.  The rumor mill is swirling today regarding the news that the DC Batman-universe character Nightwing will be introduced in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel 2015 sequel Batman vs. Superman.

The oft-rumor site Latino-Review is claiming they have sources that point to the character of Nightwing starring in the upcoming superhero sequel.  Nightwing, known as one-time Robin – Dick Grayson, is said to be in the sequel as someone that has taken up the Gotham “savior” moniker in Batman’s absence.  That absence, taken on by Bruce Wayne’s retirement as the Dark Knight, has soured Dick Grayson and Bruce on each other.  They supposedly haven’t talked in years and don’t really want anything to do with each other.

The LR states that their sources say Snyder is looking for a “young John Hawkes type” which is weird because when you think of Nightwing or even Robin you don’t think of John Hawkes.

We shall see.
