"Batman," he said. "If they reboot that again, I’ll do that, too. It’s happening isn’t it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin. I’m perfect."

It’s no secret that DC fans would love to see Dick Grayson on the big screen. There’s even been plenty of rumours that we might see Nightwing team up with Ben Affleck’s Batman in the upcoming ‘Batman V Superman’.

But will he appear as Robin? And who will play him? I’m willing to bet that ‘Daniel Radcliffe’ isn’t the name that instantly comes to mind.


Of course, after starring in the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise, he’s already built up a very solid relationship with Warner Bros. Studios. But is that really enough to land him a part as the big-screen Boy Wonder?

Judging from the tone of ‘Man of Steel’ as well as the recently revealed images of the Batsuit and Batmobile, I can’t help thinking they’re going for a rather gritty tone when it comes to the DC universe.

Somehow, I doubt Radcliffe would fit in well.

But could there be another role for him in the upcoming ‘Batman’ movies? For now, we’ll just have to wait and see. What do you think of Radcliffe’s ‘Batman’ aspirations? Would he make a good Dick Grayson? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
