Fresh off the success of “The LEGO Batman Movie,” director Chris McKay has begun negotiations to helm a live-action “Nightwing” film based on the DC Comics character for Warner Bros. Pictures
Bill Dubuque (“The Accountant”) is writing the script about Dick Grayson, the youngest member of a family of acrobats who became Batman’s sidekick Robin and then left him to set out on his own as the hero Nightwing.
The character of Robin has yet to officially appear in the new DC Extended Universe, though a graffiti-covered former Robin suit was shown in Zack Snyder’s “Batman v. Superman” – though that alluded to a different version of Robin.
It’s unclear where or how this new Nightwing story will fit in to the DCEU timeline.
