Quickly building a name for himself in acting circles with strong role choices, singer-turned-actor Nick Jonas has officially thrown his hat into the ring for those casting the titular role of Dick Grayson in the upcoming “Nightwing” movie at Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics.
A number of fans have reportedly taken to social media to campaign for the actor to play the role, leading to ComicBook.com asking him about it during the recent “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” junket. He responded:
“That’d be awesome… I would. I’d be super down for this. I didn’t know there was people vying for me to play this role but keep the chatter alive people! If you vote for me, maybe they’ll cast me in it! And then, I don’t know, I’ll thank you all later.”
Jonas would be the second name linked to the role in recent months, with “Power Rangers” and “Stranger Things” actor Dacre Montgomery also having been linked. Filmmaker Chris McKay hasn’t yet started casting on the still in development project which doesn’t yet have a release date.
The project isn’t to be confused with “Titans,” the direct-to-streaming original series based on the “Teen Titans” comics which stars Brenton Thwaites as the Robin version of Dick Grayson.
