‘Girls’ star Adam Driver has denied being considered or cast as Nightwing in Batman Vs. Superman.
The rumor, originating from TheWrap, said Driver and two others were being rumored for the part.
These were Drivers comments on the subject: “That’s like intensely flattering as you can imagine. I mean, it’s Batman and Superman, who doesn’t want to be involved in something not only of that scale but of who those characters are. That’s an incredible world to be able to be in for a bit. Like who wouldn’t want to do that?”
Since the Driver rumor is now false, it’s a big possibility that the Nightwing rumor is false also. This would be great news for the movie, which has enough comic book characters as it is. Although i would love to see a Wonder Woman cameo by Jaimie Alexander.
What do you think of Driver’s comments? Do you want to see Nightwing in a movie soon?
Elizabeth Olsen has been confirmed as The Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
The 24 year old actress spoke to MTV and confirmed she was in the upcoming sequel.
Personally, i think Olsen is a fantastic actress on the rise recently with roles in Spike Lee’s Oldboy and the new Godzilla movie. She has great screen presence and has the looks to pull of the enigmatic Scarlet Witch. Seeing as though she has already worked with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, i think they will have great chemistry as the brother/sister pair.
When asked whether she had seen any concept art or costumes, Olsen replied: “No, I just know about it. It’s been talked about, and it’s so fun.”
Are you an advocate of Elizabeth Olsen? Who would you have cast as Wanda Maximoff?
The moderator for the Man Of Steel fan event, Kevin Smith has seen the new Batsuit in the upcoming Batman Vs Superman, and the new Dark Knight himself, Ben Affleck in it.
Smith said: “”I saw the Batman costume. More than that I saw a picture of [Affleck] in the costume. Now, I don’t want to give anything away ’cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this, I instantly bear hugged [Snyder]. You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before, and for a comic book fan it was mind bending. I was like ‘Get out of here, only you have enough power to pull this off.’ Because everyone always like does this Matrix/X-Men black armor. It was fantastic. I’m already a flag waver for this movie, but the costume, it blew my mind. I think everyone is just gonna be like, ‘Holy shit!’ It’s its own thing, man. It’s like we haven’t been down this path at all. I was so elated. Even the hardest core “fuck all this” person will be like, ‘Alright, I’m ready.'”
This re-assures me that they will treat Batman with respect and that they are heading in the right direction for the Batman Vs Superman movie. As long as the Nightwing rumors aren’t true, this is my most anticipated movie of the coming years.
Looking forward to the first image of Affleck in the Batsuit? Let me know in the comments.
