Do you think Peter P:etrelli makes a good Nightwing?

#1 Posted by Knightwing (333 posts) - - Show Bio

I once read an interview (must be the 50th time I said that) that Peter Petrelli or Milo Ventimiglia is Batman fan and has expressed interest in portraying Nightwing.

It would be cool to see him do Nightwing or at least a young Batman/ Bruce.

He's certainly got the looks for it. I tried imagining him with the Nightwing mask.

So what do you guys think? I know I'm sounding like a fanboy.

His height is okay with me.

OMD! He is too short!(Get it OMD) Still he does seem like the ideal choice.

Oh and I aren't gay if that's what you're thinking, I'm just voicing my opinion.

Hmmm, compares Nightwing pics to actor Man I'm kinda into this one, I'm wondering how they could pull off the costume.

From what i've seen in Heroes he's cool, but his acting isn't all that good. So he has the looks a bit but i can't fully see Him acting as Nightwing.

Nightwing in the DC Encylopedia is 5'10 weighing 175 lbs.

Batman in DC Encylopedia is 6' 210 lbs.  Christian Bale when playing Batman Begins was like 190lbs  and about 5'9".

So yeah he has he look but he would need to adjust his acting so that he portrays a person totally different that from himself. Dick Grayson is a team player and a all around friendly guy who is sensitive towards others needs. Whoever plays Dick Grayson would need to portray those qualities plus the personalty traits of a lost teenager trying to get out of Batman's shadow for the upcoming Teen Titans movie.

Firstly Christian Bale is 6' dead.

Secondly Milo Ventimiligia is like in the 5'8" or 5'9" range so he's around Nightwing's height, plus he has the look, and he's a good enough actor.

If he bufs up then he might pull it off we will probably never se it happen

Appearance-wise, sure.  He could pull off the look.
Acting-wise... while I like the guy, his acting could use some fine tuning.  If you want to reference some of his other role aside from Heroes, watch Cursed (werewolf flick) or Pathology (Just an effed up movie)

i don't think milo could be nightwing. he tries to be too dark when he's acting. he may look like him but the whole personality isn't there.

PLEASE NO!  I can't handle his lip curling up every minute

#16 Posted by speedlgt (2109 posts) - - Show Bio

he would have to hit the GYM BIG TIME hes way to thin needs to bulk up

#17 Posted by Editman (207 posts) - - Show Bio

IF he acts like the same peter petrelli from heroes i'd give him 3 days

#18 Posted by Marvel Knight (1270 posts) - - Show Bio

He has the look, but I don't think they should use Nightwing or any form of Robin in this new series of movies.

I can picture the dude as nightwing he wouldn't be bad, but I've never seen him acting so I'm not 100% sure.
