Justice League director Zack Snyder revealed that he’d spoken to Star Wars actor Adam Driver about bringing him into the DC Extended Universe.
It seems like Adam Driver nearly made the leap from Star Wars over to the DCEU, as director Zack Snyder recently revealed that he spoke to the Kylo Ren actor about a DC role. The revelation came as part of an interview with MTV’s Josh Horowitz ahead of the highly-anticipated release of Justice League, which actually crashed HBO Max because of the high demand. Driver appeared in all three films in the Star Wars sequel trilogy with many fans loving his character regardless of the mixed critical reception to some of the chapters in the series, and now many are wondering who he could’ve played.
During the interview, Horowitz asked Zack Snyder about whether or not he considered bringing Adam Driver in for a future DC role, with the director confirming that he’d spoken to the Star Wars actor about a future project. Disappointingly, Snyder also explained that he didn’t speak to the star about playing Nightwing. Take a look at the filmmaker discussing Adam Driver’s potential DC role below.

Here is the official synopsis for the Snyder Cut:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
