Will we see Nightwing in the Superman vs. Batman film?

In the Superman vs. Batman film, we know that Ben Affleck will be playing a tired and weary Batman against Henry Cavill’s young and powerful Superman. Shooting for the film has already begun, since the crew recently shot a scene in Los Angeles for a Gotham University vs. Metropolis University football game (which we attended). There have been rumors going around that they want to cast Wonder Woman (Thor’s Jaimie Alexander said she went to Warner Bros. last week) and already have a possible design on how Batman’s suit is going to look.

Now we have information that Nightwing might be joining the mix from Latino Review. The site says that the crew is looking for a Caucasian male who knows martial arts, stands at 5′ 10″ and looks like a young John Hawkes. It’s said that the film version will take place during a time where Batman and Nightwing, aka Dick Grayson, aren’t exactly speaking to each other.


If this is the case, that means that they are not likely to cast Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a role in the film (he was suggested to be the next Batman according to the end of The Dark Knight Returns). Also, this means that they will skip Robin (unless they introduce another Robin).

For me personally, I never liked the idea of Batman having kids around fighting crime, but Nightwing, on the other hand, is a different story. What do you guys think of Nightwing possibly being in the Superman vs. Batman film?
