So as it turns out there might be not one, but two familiar faces in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
Latino Review is reporting that Dick Grayson aka Nightwing is rumoured to be in Batman vs. Superman.
Apparently, Warner Bros. is looking for a “young John Hawkes type,” El Mayimbe says. And that adds up to Nightwing how? Not sure I buy this one.
You’ll remember that prior to the release of The Dark Knight Rises, there were rumours that Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be playing Nightwing in Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film.
If Nolan’s iteration of Batman had continued, then that might have been a possibility (Gordon-Levitt was ‘Robin’ in the film)
And while you’re digesting the Nightwing nugget, Schmoes Know are reporting that Wonder Woman will definitely be in Batman Vs. Superman.
And Schmoes is reporting that former Bond girl Olga Kurylekno has tried out for the role.
Thor 2′s Jaimie Alexander is also rumoured to be in the running for the role.
With Batman already set to be a focal point in the new film, I’m getting a little hesitant about the possibility of these additional heroes popping up in Man of Steel 2.
I get that DC wants to set up a Justice League feature, but it might get a wee bit muddled if they start cramming the film with secondary characters. What do you think? Sound off in the comments.
