Girls star Adam Driver has publicly denied that he’ll be playing Nightwing (formerly Robin; Dick Grayson to his mates) in Batman and Superman Go Large, or whatever it’s going to be called. But if not Driver, then whom? We’ve come up with a few ideas.
Movie 43 may already be the most derided film of all time, and it’s only been in the cinema for less than a week. It’s an ‘anthology film’ of thirteen or more (depending on how you count) short, non-related comedy sketches directed by various different people.

Over the years we’ve seen plenty of comics turned into films, which normally entails lifting the characters and plot and leaving everything comic-specific behind. Fair enough.

Edgar Wright’s extraordinary film is more fun than waking up and discovering you’re Mario.
