Although Girls actor Adam Driver is reportedly a "serious contender" to play Dick Grayson in Zack Snyder's much-anticipated Batman Vs. Superman, the trades made note yesterday that there could be two other actors circling the "former sidekick" to Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne.
According to the up-and-comers over at Superhero Movie News, whose scoop on Marvel's Ant-Man has only been advocated by other credible sources, they reckon that Warner Bros. are also seriously considering The CW's Gossip Girls actor Penn Badgley, 27, and Ezra Miller, 21, from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Other than Zack Snyder's search for Nightwing being down to these three actors, there're no further details given. But whoever nabs the role, they'll join Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne. And Batman Vs. Superman is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015! What do you think?

Out of the three choices I think I would go with Penn Badgley. The Ezra guy looks to much like a kid more Robin then Nightwing & I would not pick him for Robin either. I still think there is other choices you could find that are better picks for Nightwing.

I do wonder if these three guys are not all going to try to play Dick Grayson. I have to think is it possible all three are already set to be in Batman/Superman and WB wants to throw off the fans. Because they don't want to let it out already that Dick, Jason & Timm will also be in the movie.

I think comic book fans would love to see Nightwing, Red Hood & Robin helping Batman.

I think this is one of the few roles Taylor Lautner would tear it up as. The guy was a bo staff national champion a few years back. Youtube it....its impressive. He's actually got the skills to do the role justice.

Badgley would be alright. He looks the part, I guess, but haven't seen him in anything. I think Miller's a pretty decent actor, too, so I'd be all for either of them getting the part.

Damn, Ezra Miller for me! The guy is just a great f*cking actor and totally looks like Nightwing and about the same height, all he needs is to pick up some weights.

And I've only seen Badgley in Easy A and I can't really comment on that haha.
