RUMOR: Dick Grayson to Appear in Batman vs. Superman
Super-duper-Latino scooper, El Mayimbe, has come across something VERY interesting concerning 2015's Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman. While rumors have recently centered around Wonder Woman, El Mayimbe is hearing that Bruce Wayne's legendary sidekick, Dick Grayson, who was intentionally absent from the Nolan Bat-films, will be joining the mix of characters. Let El Mayimbe explain it himself after the jump:
Now, it seems to be either El Mayimbe or his source who have made the connection to Grayson appearing as Nightwing in the film, but that's a very logical deduction given that we know Affleck's Batman is going to be an older, worn hero so Grayson would have aged past the stages of "Boy Wonder." This would be a pretty great addition to the film. Personally, I'd rather have Nightwing than Wonder Woman, especially given his direct ties to Wayne.
As the DCCU continues to build and Arrow continues to be an increasingly better product, I wonder if the folks at DC/WB aren't going to use Arrow as the gateway to the bigger DCCU. We have rumors that the Flash from the show may be the one in the films; no reason that Oliver Queen can't be as well. Nightwing's city, Bludhaven, made an appearance in Season 1 of Arrow, so it's possible that they will continue to add to and build from some of the great things that show is doing in its second season.
How do you guys feel about this Nightwing/Grayson rumor?
