Not sure what hero he'd be a fit for, but Nightwing definitely isn't it.

I hope this guy does get cast just so I can see all of the fanboy's reactions.

Although I wouldn't have wanted Nightwing until the stand alone Batman film, you guys were real asses that day - only mentioning how "ugly" he was; this guy seems pretty humble and worthy of a character like Nightwing.

Why are people talking about El Mayimbe? Wasn't it The Wrap who broke the scoop?

Also, this worries me. . .It means the CW's DC universe is now more likely to mix in with the MOS DC universe - which would f*@#ing blow.

Great actor in Girls and I think he is off-center enough that this casting would catch a lot of people off-guard and be fantastic.

There you go. Another nail in El Mayimbe's "journalistic" Coffin. He's so full of shit, i'm surprised nobody else calls him out on it.
FordEl
FordEl - 11/16/2013, 5:53 PM
He doesnt look that bad and he's a grwat actor. Isnt that what we ultimately need anyways? This isnt a beauty contest. I bet half of the peope calling him ugly arent even flattering themselves.

No Nightwing in this movie please.

Hey Getsuga, don't be a dumb bitch, El Mayimbe didn't report this rumor. [frick]ing dipshit.
ALegendaryPanda
ALegendaryPanda - 11/16/2013, 5:55 PM
Lol but in all seriousness if Nightwing is actually in this he's probably cast already, they're just waiting to announce it. Look at Ben Affleck, he was signed on months before they actually announced he was playing Batman.

Up to this point, with all the rumors, I have no clue whatsoever what this movie will be about, other that Ben and Henry will be in the movie. The fact that DC is running way behind their competition, how many characters will make a cameo in MOS2? WB announced that there willbe a Flash movie in 2017, and the long-gestating "Justice League" in 2017, so my guess would be that WB has a genuine plain for the DCCU.
