Despite Batman having only been in one (two if you count a cameo in Suicide Squad) Batman and his family are getting a lot of attention in the DCEU. Batgirl is getting a film directed by Joss Whedon, the Gotham City Sirens are going to be getting a film, and Nightwing is also getting some solo time in a film directed by Chris McKay.
For many, Nightwing is one of if not the best member of the Batfamily, and that includes Batman himself. Dick Grayson has been a sidekick, team leader, solo hero, and even donned the mantle of Batman for a good amount of time in the comics. So a movie truly featuring him? That’s pretty epic, and as Director Chris McKay noted on Twitter, this is important to him too, he wants to find the perfect actor to play Dick Grayson:
“It has to be full commitment. Every day. It is going to be gruelling from a martial arts, gymnastics and stunt perspective.”
He has noted in the past that was makes Grayson such a great character in his eyes is that he is a character who remains who he is no matter what, and he wants to make sure the Nightwing movie represents the true character.
No word yet on when the Nightwing movie will come, but, with SDCC right around the corner, anything is possible.
