drake rodgers wants to play nightwing

We recently covered rumors about the development of a live-action ‘Teen Titans’ movie, which have now been confirmed true. Ana Nogueira, currently involved in ‘Supergirl: the Woman of Tomorrow,’ has been chosen to write the script. Production for the movie is said to commence in late 2025.

We’ve highlighted numerous young actors who have shown keen interest in various roles. For instance, Ian Ousley from ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ expressed his desire to portray Beast Boy, while Asher Angel from ‘Shazam’ recently hinted at the role of Nightwing on social media.

Another actor throwing their hat into the ring for the role of Nightwing is Drake Rodger, known for his role in ‘The Winchesters.’ Rodger has voiced his interest in the role, describing it as a dream opportunity. He expressed hope for an audition, noting that he’s already equipped for the part.

My dream role is to play Nightwing in the DC Universe. I wanted to play him for so long. In fact, I actually, like 3 years ago, bought Kali sticks, and I’ve been learning just how to use those, just as like a little push forward. But, fingers crossed that I at least have the opportunity to audition for it in James Gunn’s universe.

Prior to his role in ‘The Winchesters,’ Rodger garnered attention for portraying Judd in ‘The In Between’ (2022), Zack Harris in ‘Murder RX’ (2020), and Conor in ‘Not Alone’ (2021).
