Not sure what hero he'd be a fit for, but Nightwing definitely isn't it.
batcheeks8 - 11/16/2013, 5:28 PM
Lol don't give him ideas and hopes now

Thank God!
DEVLIN712 - 11/16/2013, 5:30 PM
C'mon guys, he isn't that bad... He's a big guy and he can act, isn't that what we ultimately want?
ClarkWayne91 - 11/16/2013, 5:31 PM
Milo Ventimiglia for Nightwing!

seem like a nice guy.
I don't think neither Nightwing or Wonder Woman will show up in the film at all. People have to stop believing every rumor that comes out for every cbm.
MrCameron - 11/16/2013, 5:34 PM
Wait, is it confirmed that Nightwing will be in this?
ClarkWayne91 - 11/16/2013, 5:35 PM
Just believe man!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 11/16/2013, 5:35 PM
So is he denying that he's confirmed for the role or that the role even exists?
AshleyWilliams - 11/16/2013, 5:37 PM
Thank christ.
ALegendaryPanda - 11/16/2013, 5:38 PM
YES!! I wish him luck with his career and I'm sure he's talented, but NIGHTWING? Lol, just lol.

SuperCat - 11/16/2013, 5:42 PM
That rumor was a really bad joke.
GoldenOne33 - 11/16/2013, 5:42 PM
THANKS GOD!!!!!!!!
DarkGrifter - 11/16/2013, 5:42 PM
I hope this guy does get cast just so I can see all of the fanboy's reactions.
GoldenOne33 - 11/16/2013, 5:43 PM
WAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!
McNyagano - 11/16/2013, 5:43 PM
Yeah I'll wait and see...Actors deny this sought of thing all the time. In time, we'll see.
npamusic - 11/16/2013, 5:45 PM
thank god, he's an ugly [frick]er.
batcheeks8 - 11/16/2013, 5:45 PM
DaVinci31 - 11/16/2013, 5:45 PM
Although I wouldn't have wanted Nightwing until the stand alone Batman film, you guys were real asses that day - only mentioning how "ugly" he was; this guy seems pretty humble and worthy of a character like Nightwing.
DarkGrifter - 11/16/2013, 5:45 PM
Why are people talking about El Mayimbe? Wasn't it The Wrap who broke the scoop?
ALegendaryPanda - 11/16/2013, 5:45 PM
Next week: "Adam Driver CONFIRMED to play Nightwing"
DaVinci31 - 11/16/2013, 5:47 PM
Also, this worries me. . .It means the CW's DC universe is now more likely to mix in with the MOS DC universe - which would f*@#ing blow.
bluedude - 11/16/2013, 5:49 PM
thank goodness
the guy is one ugly fellow
Zordan - 11/16/2013, 5:49 PM
Do you guys belive him??? I dont!!
GoldenOne33 - 11/16/2013, 5:50 PM
Yeah the guy playing Nightwing in the Arrow show maybe be cast in the Batman/Superman movie. They may wait and see how he will do first, if people like him and then BOOM!!!
bluedude - 11/16/2013, 5:50 PM
DaVinci31 it would f*@#ing rock
arrows awesome
arrow mos same universe
McMeatFace - 11/16/2013, 5:50 PM
Great actor in Girls and I think he is off-center enough that this casting would catch a lot of people off-guard and be fantastic.
GetsugaTensho22 - 11/16/2013, 5:51 PM
There you go. Another nail in El Mayimbe's "journalistic" Coffin. He's so full of shit, i'm surprised nobody else calls him out on it.
GoldenOne33 - 11/16/2013, 5:51 PM
SOMEONE PUT A PICTURE UP OF THE GUY PLAYING NIGHTWING IN THE ARROW SHOW!
Nomis - 11/16/2013, 5:52 PM
@ ALegendaryPanda - LOL!!!

Marina Cotillard said she wasn't Talia for TDK rise and we saw how that turned out. ;)
FordEl - 11/16/2013, 5:53 PM
He doesnt look that bad and he's a grwat actor. Isnt that what we ultimately need anyways? This isnt a beauty contest. I bet half of the peope calling him ugly arent even flattering themselves.
Prime - 11/16/2013, 5:53 PM
No Nightwing in this movie please.
CaptainAmerica - 11/16/2013, 5:55 PM
Hey Getsuga, don't be a dumb bitch, El Mayimbe didn't report this rumor. [frick]ing dipshit.
