Batman Movie Casting: ‘The Walking Dead’ Steven Yeun As Nightwing? Fans Tweet
Warner Bros’ is currently prioritizing Ben Affleck’s untitled Batman movie. But upcoming movies like Justice League and Wonder Woman have been revealing updates lately.Advertisement
Recently, a rumor on Reddit suggests that other Arkham superheroes like Batgirl, Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing would be cast in the Batman movie. So far, Commissioner Gordon (JK Simmons) and Deathstroke have been confirmed for the film.
Earlier this week, a move by actor Ryan Potter suggested that Tim Drake’s Robin will also be part of the Batman movie. Recently, there have been speculations that a Korean-born American actor is in talks for the role of Nightwing.
Tweets from fans are claiming that The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun would probably play Nightwing. However, these reports are baseless. There have been no credible sources confirming Yeun as Nightwing. The rumor may have gained its traction due to fan casting on Twitter and Reddit.
The last official report from COO Geoff Johns confirmed that Ben Affleck is working on the script for the untitled Batman movie. Furthermore, the director is busy with his filming schedule as Batman and as executive producer for the Justice League movie.
It’s likely that casting speculations and rumors on Reddit and 4Chan are fabricated reports by internet trolls. Furthermore, initial reports posted on 4Chan regarding a DC leak was shattered by a credible DC inside source.
Neither Ben Affleck nor Steven Yeun has shared their opinions on the recent rumors. Currently, The Walking Dead fans are expecting Yeun’s character Glenn to be dead in the upcoming season.
