While we are all holding our breath and hoping and praying that the DC Extended Universe can finally come good and compete with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have to admit that we are not too hopeful, although some recently said that it can surely not get any worse, so maybe we should be more optimistic about things, especially with some of the new characters we have coming to the big screen.
As most of you will already know by now, we are going to finally get to see Nightwing hitting the big screen, with the character actually getting his own solo movie, which has led to many fans giving their views on which actor should be cast in the role. There are obviously some important things to bear in mind, when it comes to casting the Nightwing actor, and we have been impressed by one name in particular.
British actor Taron Egerton has been enjoying quite the rise in Hollywood in recent years, giving fantastic performances in Kingsman: The Secret Service, as well as the very funny Eddie the Eagle, while he also has the Kingsman sequel coming up, as well as starring in a new Robin Hood movie. While that could be enough to keep any actor too busy for another huge movie role, we are sure Taron would jump at the chance to play Nightwing.
Taron Egerton is a very talented actor and has shown that he has it all and could take on any role. Taron is the right age to play Dick Grayson, while he also has the ability to play the necessary personalities that it requires to be Nightwing. Egerton has the world at his feet and landing a role as big as Nightwing would make him a household name and a global superstar.
