Five Actors Who Could Portray NIGHTWING

Five Actors Who Could Portray NIGHTWING

Warner Bros. can't seem to get enough Batman but maybe they should look at a slightly different type of Batman? It's high time Nightwing step into the limelight with his own movie or television show. Here's five actors who could do Dick Grayson justice.




We've seen a couple of live-action iterations of Dick Grayson as Robin but never as Nightwing. Quite frankly, Grayson becomes much more interesting and dynamic once he steps out of Batman's shadow. He'll often drop a funny quip or two while beating up the bad guys and then there's quite a few candidates to to chose from for a love interest. It's a little surprising we've yet to get a solo Nightwing show yet. But if that day comes anytime soon, here are five candidates to play him.

Nightwing is a name that has been used by several fictional characters in the DC Comics Universe. It was conceived as a Kryptonian analogue to the character of Batman, with Nightwing's frequent partner Flamebird based on Robin. The Nightwing persona originates with a Kryptonian vigilante taking the name of the "Nightwing", a bird native to the planet Krypton.

When Dick Grayson gives up his role as Robin in 1984, he recalls the Kandorian adventure and renames himself Nightwing, in homage to both Batman and Superman.
