Fans are going crazy over Jared Padalecki as Nightwing role, a fictional character aka Dick Grayson in the live-action movie version. He is the coveted comic book sidekick to Batman in DC comics. Let’s find out more about this juicy information in more detail.
Jared Padalecki as DC comics’ Nightwing
Jared Padalecki has been adored by the viewers since the early 2000s. He got his first prominent role in the sensational TV hit Gilmore Girls, where he played the role of Dean Forester. Even though he had less screen timing, he appeared as Wade in 2005’s House of Wax. Later on, he also played the role of Clay Miller in 2009’s Friday the 13th remake.
Jared has been a crush of many fans for years. But he gained immense popularity worldwide after playing the role of Sam Winchester in The CW’s famous horror megahit Supernatural. He appeared in this show for straight 15 years. And currently, the actor is playing the lead role of Cordell Walker in another CW show called “Walker.”
As of now, Padalecki has nothing else lined up for the future. But the fans are intrigued about the possibility of the Supernatural star playing the role of Dick Grayson/Nightwing. It is a speculated live-action movie version that is expected to release in near future.
If we look at Padalecki from a director’s point of view, then we believe that he is perfect for the role. As if the character is built for Padalecki. He is 6 foot 4 inches tall which is perfect for the character. Apart from Padalecki’s physique, there are many other aspects of his personality that are suitable for Grayson’s snarky attitude.
Considering all these factors, we believe that if Padalecki gets this role, he will surely nail it.
Here is what Fans have to say about Jared Padalecki’s Nightwing
In a Reddit thread, a user shared an incredible fan art featuring Jared Padalecki as Nightwing. As soon as the poster appeared, it led to never-ending discussion among the fans. And most of them loved this concept. One user commented that this would be pretty cool. Many users chimed in and shared their views about Padalecki playing the role of Nightwing.
However, there is one big issue with him being cast as Nighting. What is it? His age! There was a separate Reddit thread related to the same topic, which had a similar discussion among the fans. One user said that Padalecki is too old to play the role of Nightwing. But if he plays the character, who is older, then he is perfect.
Also, if Padalecki was in his Sam Winchester years, then we think the role of Nightwing would be more suitable. Even it would be the best decision of the directors to cast him in that role. However, when this Nightwing thread was created, Padalecki was in his mid-30s. And according to the sources, Nightwing is supposed to be in his mid-20s.
So some of his fans believe this choice won’t work out either for the casting team or Padalecki. Regardless of what fans envision, Padalecki playing the role of an older Nightwing might become true in the future.
