Dick Grayson, otherwise known as Nightwing is a vital character to Batman's history and legacy. We have not ever properly seen Nightwing on the big screen and [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) could be our first chance. It's evident that Zach Snyder (director) wants to go to the roots of the comics and emulate them on the big screen and how better than to introduce boy wonder turned bad-ass, Nightwing?

He's smart, witty, acrobatic and very keen on making a name for himself whilst being grateful for all Batman has done for him. For the role of Nightwing we would need more than just a pretty face. The actor would need natural wit and a quick whip for smart remarks. I'm going to name the five guys I think could pull it off, but I'd also love to hear what you guys think! Leave comments below on who you would like behind the mask.

**This is not in any particular order**

5. Matt Bomer

Most of you would know Bomber from the hit TV show White Collar, and for those who don't know him, he's a handsome, charismatic who has the right build and personality for Dick Grayson. He has quite the fan-base from White Collar and this role would be great for him to conquer the big screen. I could totally get behind this guy being behind the cowl.

4. Taron Egerton

Taron Egerton, star of the hit 2014 action movie [Kingsman: The Secret Service](tag:713143) is second on this list. Most of you would be skeptical of him probably due to his strong British accent, but fear not he is an actor and he will be able to pull of an American accent. Christian Bale was British also after all.. Taron was a quick-talking, smart-ass in Kingsman yet the audience still loved him, I know I did! With the success of Kingsman we'll be sure to see more of this new star and what better way to propel you career rather than a superhero flick?

3. Chris Pine

Chris Pine is one of those actors I'm desperate to see in a superhero movie because I know how perfect he would be. He is an incredibly diverse actor being both hilarious and compelling. Which would be perfect for Dick's wit and past troubles.. Swaying between both would not be an easy task. The only con of having Chris behind the mask is his age.. It wouldn't match with Batman being only a few years older than him. Give the guy a shave and some anti-aging cream and say he's 20. Problem solved, hire Chris!

2. Josh Hutcherson

Josh Hutcherson is one of those child actors that didn't go off the rails. Pretty rare, I know. Over the years he's morphed from child star to teen star ( The Hunger Games) and I think now is the time he morphed once again in to an adult star. I could see this guy being around for a while and who knows where he could go next. Nightwing would be a good fit considering his physique, age, humor and personality. I could see him working great under Affleck and his has certainly shown us that he can play the part of a broken man as shown in The Hunger Games.

1. Zac Efron

Efron.

I know I said this list is in no particular order but I must say, Zac Efron is my number one choice for Nightwing. I don't think you can really hate on this guy, anybody that does is stuck in 2010 when all he did was High School Musical. But that's in the past, this guy is a great actor and often hilarious. People who hate are probably just jealous (the same kind surrounding Channing Tatum). Efron has shown us how funny he was when he stole the show in Bad Neighbors and has done plenty of dramas, such as: Charlie St. Cloud, The Lucky One and The Paperboy. The right age, build, humor and acting skills. Efron for Nightwing.

So there you have it guys, my list for the prized spot of Nightwing. Let me know what you think in the comments and be sure to have a look at my others posts.
