Please Allow Me a Moment to Freak Out Prematurely About Nightwing

We don’t yet know whether or not Nightwing will be in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. We know that Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg are all going to appear, and possibly more. But there is no confirmation yet on Nightwing (or Robin, for that matter). I’m not panicking yet. There were rumors about Nightwing, but nothing for sure.

Until now…maybe…probably not. But darn it, I’m going to get my hopes up! Because they’ve cast an actor named Scoot McNairy, and he looks like Dick Grayson!

Boy Wonder?

Not that Dick Grayson has a particular look. But he could definitely play Dick Grayson!

A lot of people are making guesses. Joker? Flash? Green Lantern? Warner Bros. is apparently keeping McNairy’s role super secret. Not even reliable scoopsters on the web have a solid answer.

I have no idea who Scoot McNairy is going to play. But until we know otherwise, I’m just going to assume it’s Nightwing! Because I’m a sucker.

  1. He’s 37 years old. Ben Affleck is 42. The age difference is too small for him to play Nightwing. He’s too old for that role. I actually think he’s going to play a small character. But we’ll see…

    • Age difference never matters in acting! Did you know that the Mountain and Jojen Reed in Game of Thrones are only 1 year apart in age difference?

      • No, I did not know that. But then again, Jojen and the Mountain never interracted, so the age difference is irrelevant.
        As the story goes for Dick, Bruce took him in when he was a kid. If they have a 5 year age difference, that wouldn’t be possible. If Dick was a kid, Bruce was in his late teens, and that just wouldn’t make sense.
        I don’t know who he’s going to play. Maybe you’re right. But I really think that this guy is way too old to play Nightwing. We would then have a Nightwing who is older than Superman, and that just doesn’t make sense to me.
        Like I said, we’ll see what happens.

  2. I assumed he would be playing Metallo as I remember he was rumored to be in the movie. But I can see how he could play Nightwing, I mean if Batman is like 40+ it stands to reason that Dick Grayson would be around his late 20s – early 30s
