I can't possibly imagine why you would need Nightwing in this movie. The whole "Bat-family" idea is a big part of the Bats character, but that belongs a Batman franchise.
At one point, this was supposed to be my franchise...
How many fucking characters are they putting in this movie? Superman, Batman, Lex Luther, Wonder Woman and now this one? I think there are going to be more people in the film than actually watch it.
Boy, they are really not high on Superman as a solo act, are they.
Who gives a shit?
Who is this guy Adam Driver? Never heard of him. He's kind of homely, at least from the photo at OP's link. And the the article says he's 6'3", and will "hold his own" next to Ben Affleck who's 6'4" - on WHAT PLANET is Affleck 6'4"? For crying out loud the hyperbole around this mess is hilarious in and off itself.
"of itself" above^^
He's from HBO's "Girls."
He's the one who jizzed all over Lens Dunham's tits. He'll win an Emmy for that episode.
They're being really stupid here, in that they're clearly trying to turn this into the DC version of The Avengers.
Audiences want Superman vs. Batman to be about, ya know, Superman vs. Batman.
Jizzing on Lena Dunham. Well then that explains his appeal for this role. I'm sure that will get the kids, teens and comic book geeks lining up to see this one.
Hey but at least he's tall. He won't look too out of place next to the intimidating physical presence of the giant Ben Affleck.
Poor Cavill, I almost feel sorry for the sucker.

Well, if he did that on Superman's hairy tits, I'd actually buy a ticket.

Yes, the horror of being very well-paid and good-looking. Oh what a world!
Enough with the super hero movies!!!!
I know they're going to market this movie with massive multi-tiered marketing, but I do believe this lame turd will be the one that makes even pathetic Comicon manboys turn the tables on this crap.
ONE good weekend, then it's Showgirls with capes.

I'm so glad I bailed out of this fucking mess.

I can't believe anyone liked that piece of shit MoS. It was awful. Cavill said all of three sentences.
Are they trying to make sure he has even fewer lines?
MoS was actually disturbing. It is not a children's film, that's for sure.
The superhero movies are really getting repetitive due to the over-saturation of the market. They were fun a few years ago, but now it's just the same fight scenes, story arcs etc. It really is time to move on.
The problem I had with it is that there was barely any character development.
It was like watching a film made for people who have ADD.
If "Thor" does well, this genre isn't going away anytime soon.
I liked MoS a lot, it was flawed but it was the kind of a Superman origin story I had always hoped to see.
I can understand Nightwing being in the movie because Batman is supposed to be older in this scenario. I still hope Ben Affleck comes down with the Bird Flu and has to be replaced.

Why are the producers so intent on relegating Cavill to the background when he should be at the helm? Wasn't this the sequel to MOS?

At this point, I'm anticipating a special guest appearance by Ted McGinley.
superhero films are beneath Oscar winners.
Sure they are, AnnE.
Bale, Cotillard, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, etc.
ok r25 I'll amend to
superhero films are beneath young and beautiful Oscar winners
Speak for yourself dear!
Marion Cotillard, Halle Berry & JLaw, polishing their LEAD Oscars
He looks fugly. Nightwing is supposed to be really handsome. WTF.

Not in the background, but he's relegated to window-dressing. He was made to be looked at, not heard.
Milo Ventimiglia = Dick Grayson
Jensen Ackles = Jason Todd
Logan Lerman = Tim Drake
Bryce Cass = Damian Wayne
Or, you know... if they are making them that much older... Tom Welling might make a fitting Dick Grayson...
[quote]Nightwing is supposed to be really handsome. WTF.
I'm sure Ben Affleck has something to do with that. He doesn't want a sidekick who's better-looking.
