So, remember those rumors a week or so back that had Adam Driver in the running to play Nightwing in "Batman Vs. Superman"? Well, it's the first he's heard of it. While the chatter machine on the super sequel is cranked, when it comes to casting, it seems nobody really knows anything at this point though there seems to be a lot of names floating around on wishlists. And we'll get to that in a second, but first, here's what Driver had to tell Collider about the possibility of playing Dick Grayson.

Retired Batman
A new tweet has arrived people. A tweet! Yes, it’s Friday and we're all halfway into the weekend, so let’s get right into it. What are we carping on about? Superhero in-the-know blogger Umberto Gonzalez has been generally on the money with his “Batman Vs. Superman” reporting of late. This morning he tweeted he was about to retweet a “scoop” about the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed superhero film for Warner Bros. And so he did, retweeting film producer Daniel Alter who tweeted “Can't wait for #BatmanvsSuperman.. #batfleck semi-retired/not speaking to Robin anymore… Controlling drones from the batcave.”

Man Of Steel Henry Cavill Amy Adams
This past weekend, Warner Bros. put together a Kevin Smith-hosted online fan event in the last push in the marketing cycle for "Man Of Steel" as it heads to home video tomorrow. And while fans were hoping some kind of big announcement for "Batman Vs. Superman" would be made, that didn't quite happen. But there were at least a couple of morsels worth pondering as the super-sequel continues to head toward its 2015 release date.

Adam Driver, Girls
We didn't see this one coming. "Girls" and "Frances Ha" star Adam Driver is up for the role of Dick Grayson in Warner Bros.' forthcoming and still-untitled film where Batman faces off against Superman (affectionately dubbed, "Batman Vs. Superman" for now). Grayson is of course Robin, Batman's sidekick who in the comics grew up, shed his old persona and mentor and became the hero known as "Nightwing."

To The Wonder, Olga Kurylenko
Rumors have been swirling around the Internet for several days now: Wonder Woman is going to make some kind of appearance, or have a significant role in “Batman Vs. Superman.” Actress and “Thor 2: The Dark World” goddess Jaimie Alexander recently became a woman in question because she revealed that she had been having conversations with WB about the superhero team-up film and knew what the plot was about. Oh course, that speculation led many to assume she’d be playing the Amazonian heroine.

J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan may be pouring enormous effort into retooling writer Michael Arndt's original draft of “Star Wars: Episode VII," but after Disney's refusal of producer Kathleen Kennedy's request to consequently delay production, Abrams and co. are forced to also push right ahead with locking a cast to deliver it. Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher have already been involved in negotiations to return, but more curious are the new faces to the “Star Wars” universe, and the latest one rumored is an exciting prospect triggered by an uncertain sighting.

"I would love to make a movie about Congo, but unfortunately I've asked Hollywood folks and they always say, ah, nobody wants to see a movie about Africa," Ben Affleck said in 2010. But that was before he won Best Picture for "Argo." And that was before he was cast as Batman in "Batman Vs. Superman." And clearly, things have changed.

Go outside and ask anyone what they think about Ben Affleck as Batman in the forthcoming "Man of Steel" sequel and they'll have an opinion set in stone, one way or the other. The reaction to his casting in "Batman Vs. Superman" has been hyperbolic in some quarters, with judgments already being pronounced long before even a piece of footage has been shot. We suppose that's just par for the course when it comes to any beloved character or franchise (prepare to watch the Internet convulse whenever the "Star Wars: Episode 7" cast is revealed), but for "Man of Steel" composer Hans Zimmer, he was a bit dismayed to see how it played out.

Runner Runner
Last week, "Runner Runner" dropped into theaters, promising the team-up of Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck—with the latter playing a rare villain role—in a thriller about online gambling gone awry. Stars? Check. Hot subject matter? Sure. But it didn't add up to a hit, with the movie crushed in the wake of "Gravity," opening to just over $7 million and earning scathing reviews to go with it. But were people behind the scenes trying to fix it?
