Two further names are said to be in the running for the role of Dick Grayson (aka. Nightwing) in the “Batman vs. Superman” project over at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Yesterday came word that “Girls” star Adam Driver is the front runner for the role, one of five actors said to be up for the part of Bruce Wayne’s estranged ex-sidekick. Now, Superhero Movies News claims they have learned of two more – Ezra Miller and Penn Badgley.
The most conventionally handsome of the trio, “Gossip Girl” and “Easy A” star Badgley has shown to have a solid talent and range, scoring good notices for the recent “Greetings From Tim Buckley”.
Miller came to notice thanks to two very different portrayals of a high school student – a chilling psychopath in “We Need To Talk About Kevin” and a living out loud gay teen in “The Perks of Being A Wallflower”. Both performances scored great acclaim.
Of the three Miller is the odd one out due to his young age (21) which doesn’t fit the character description as compared with Badgley (27) and Driver (turns 30 next week).
