RUMOR: Dick Grayson (Nightwing) To Appear In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

Things are starting to heat up. Earlier today, Shmoes Know, reported that Olga Kurylenko ("Quantum of Solace") was up for Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel. And now, Latino Review's El Mayimbe is reporting that Dick Grayson will also be included in Batman Vs. Superman. In his younger days, Dick was taken under Bruce Wayne/Batman's wing and became the Dark Knight's crime-fighting partner, Robin. As Dick got older, he took on a new superhero identity, Nightwing. Based on the Dick Grayson that El Mayimbe describes in the video below, it appears Batman Vs. Superman will feature the Nightwing version that fans have grown to love. How do you like them apples, Ben Affleck!



Richard "Dick" Grayson is a member of the Batman Family who has been a superhero most of his life and held several aliases. His parents were the Flying Graysons, acrobats performing with him alongside in the traveling Haly's Circus. They were tragically murdered by a mobster in Gotham City named Tony Zucco, and millionaire Bruce Wayne adopted him as his legal ward at a very young age. Grayson went through extensive training in martial arts and crimefighting to become the original Robin, Batman's sidekick. Many years later when he had outgrown the position, he took the name and costume of Nightwing. Jason Todd was his successor, followed by Tim Drake. As an adult he becomes Batman to replace Bruce Wayne during Battle for the Cowl, alongside Damian Wayne as his Robin. Since Bruce's return they operate simultaneously as part of Batman Incorporated. He was also a founding member and leader of the Teen Titans, and has been on the Outsiders, and currently the Justice League of America. Dick Grayson was created by Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson, first appearing in Detective Comics #38. (1940) - DC Wiki

Man Of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by David Goyer. The cast includes: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne and Richard Schiff.

Yes. Batman must have at least Sarah Gordon working with him as his assistant like in Arkham Asylum or at the end of Arkham Origins. The Batman we will see has been Batman for years they said. Most likely 4 at the most. Batman must have Dick Grayson as Robin at least.

I'm actually hopeful that this is true, he'd be fun to see in a supporting capacity. I'd rather have this than the Wonder Woman appearance; she deserves her own film before cameoing in anyone else's.

Nightwing with flashbacks to his Robin days is way better than taking the risk of putting Robin in there.

Wonder woman and Nightwing and Batman all introduced in the same movie? and not only that a superman sequel?

He's going to be Robin.

The general audience knows robin. They're not going to present them with some guy calling himself nightwing

I'd prefer this to Wonder Woman honestly. I don't know how they're going to fit all of this into one film, I mean you have (supposedly): Lex and Supes meeting, Batman and Superman meeting/fighting, Batman and Nightwing's relationship issues, and on top of THAT probably some other stuff with Lois thrown in to take some focus away from the heroes. Maybe Lex won't even be IN this movie?

As long as he doesn't have a huge role, sure. Have him in the cave with Alfred.

Hell, then have the actor thrown into Arrow. They mention Bludhaven enough.

I'm betting that WW will be introduced in a post-credits scene of sorts and have her own movie in 2016.

El Mayimbe has actually been pretty on point lately with his scoops. Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Aaron Taylor Johnson as Quicksilver, to name a few.

Makes more sense than having Wonder Woman in it.

Honestly, this guy is legit with most stuff. Some of his sources lied to him (because the studio gave him false leads) but he's usually right. Khan was in Star Trek and Talia was in TDKR. I mean this guy was even threatened by Marvel to reveal is source.

So yeah entirely possible folks.

I could see the Nightwing thing happening during the movie and at the end get a mention of Diana and Themyscira.

If this is true, I'm glad Grayson is Nightwing at that point. Guess it makes sense since Batman has been around for awhile.

I honestly dont want to see Wonder Woman introduced in this movie I think its a cheap way out of giving her her own movie and it pisses me off. However I wouldn't mind having Nightwing either be Bruce's partner or in the cave with Alfred.

If this is true, movie is getting mighty crowded. Though, it's probably just another rumor.

Coolest. ...Nightwing or Robin???

JDUKE25 - 11/6/2013, 9:28 PM
So.........they want a young Dick and not an old one?
JDUKE25
JDUKE25 - 11/6/2013, 9:30 PM
Having Dick as Nightwing is fine. Then have Tim Drake as Robin. I still want Robin done justice dagnabbit!!
DeathstrokeTerminator
DeathstrokeTerminator - 11/6/2013, 9:31 PM
@ChrisEl
I don't think its crowded, if Batman is older then it does makes sense that Nightwing would be around, maybe a small appearance in the batcave.

I hope if Nightwing is in the film his suit is the blue one and not the crappy red 52 version.
I would love to see Nightwing in the film. If he is then when the Batman solo film comes out you can have Tim Drake as Robin in that film. Throw in Cassandra Cain as Batgirl too and you will have an awesome film.

I think if Dick is in the film it will help flesh out the world even more. Plus make it so you don't have to have a Batman the early years movie later on. So I hope this rumor is not a rumor. I do feel sorry for Superman though getting the light taken away from him. But the more the merrier. So bring on Dick Grayson too.

not believing this shit but if true, this makes no sense. Why not just go with a justice league movie? you're throwing everyone into SUPERMANS movie. I dont understand

Eh Maybe also said Jason Momoa was gonna be Drax in GoTG, Planet Hulk was going to be the next Marvel Studios story arc, and that a fan-made Wonder Woman clip was a trailer for a new movie by WB.

Half of what he says is bs

El Mayimbe said that Ben Affleck would get the role of Batman back in February. The guy is usually on point. If true, I am DAMN excited for this movie so long as they keep Chris O'Donnell away and on CSI.

Sorry but no. This guy isn't credible. He makes educated guess based on public information. I've seen predictions in the comments on this site get picked up by him and run as stories. Even a broken clock is right twice a day, throw enough shit at the wall and some of it is bound to stick.

Simple law of averages. The same people come on here saying "He's been on point lately" well look at his larger history, he's wrong way more often than he's right. And when he's right he's rarely if ever the first person to report it or figure it out.

Man of Steel 2:
guest starring
Batman
Wonder Woman
and Nightwing

so it's a soft start of a Justice League movie? I call B.S. it's Batman and Superman only; with maybe a cameo, in reg clothes, of Wonder Woman.

This isn't really sounding like it's shaping up to be a sequel to Man of Steel... which isn't a bad thing
