Comicbookmovie.com is reporting rumors that the Caped Crusader may not be alone in the next installment of the Zack Snyder Superman series of films Batman vs. Superman. According to Comicbookmovie.com, Warner Brothers is looking for a “young John Hawkes-type” (not Hawkes himself) to play Dick Grayson. These are unconfirmed rumors, but given that Synder is going with an older, more world-weary Batman it seems logical that he may have other members of the Bat family to help him in his impending encounter with the Man of Steel.
While it might be too early to move beyond speculation at this point, the idea of introducing multipule characters from the DC Universe into the Superman films may be a lead-in to a Justice League movie, especially given the success of The WB’s TV series Arrow and the recent introduction of The Flash to Arrow continuity that will result in the Scarlet Speedster getting his own show.
What do you guys think? Are we going to see an older Dick Grayson helping the Dark Knight in the up-coming Superman films? Is DC trying to orchestrate a shared mutli-film universe that has been so succcessful for Marvel Films? Maybe they’re even planning a TV/Film cross over. Who knows?! Only time will tell what they’ve gotten hidden behind the cowl.
