I decided I'd do a fan-cast for Nightwing because the rumors are starting to heat up that he's gonna be in Batman Vs Superman (which I'm all for!). Personally I love Nightwing. He's acrobatic, cool and could do with a good live action portrayal. There are some actors here who may be already rumored or I could just like myself for the role. Let me know your opinions!

1. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

A popular choice but still should be included on the list. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, Don Jon) is probably my favorite actor at the moment and of course I'd love to see him play Nightwing. He did appear as Robin in The Dark Knight Rises so I guess that's where that rumor stemmed from. Couldn't see this one happening but I'd be delighted if it did!

2. Jake Gyllenhaal

If they're looking for the cheeky, charismatic Nightwing then I feel they look no further than Jake Gyllenhaal. He's got the personality and with some hair change and tone down he could pull off Nightwing in my opinion. Enjoyed him a lot in Source Code so that's how he made it on this list.

3. Zac Efron

Don't hate me for this one. Some of you I'm sure will agree he's got the wit and charm to be Nightwing. Some may just remember him from High School Musical but he really has shown he can act, I've grown to like him in recent movies and felt like he could do a good job! Think about this one.

4. Jared Leto

This is an actor I've not seen a lot of but I like him. He definitely looks like a Nightwing, no doubt about that. I would be intrigued to see what he'd be like in the role.

5. Matt Bomer

Originally cast to play Batman this actor is quite likable. Has the personality shown in White Collar to portray the role. Worth a shot!

Let me know what you guys think, who do you want to see as Nightwing?
