“Nightwing” Director Confirms No ‘Dick’ Yet

“The LEGO Batman Movie” helmer Chris McKay has shot down a report from over the weekend in regards to the upcoming Batman spin-off feature “Nightwing” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

That report indicated that “Stranger Things 2” and “Power Rangers” star Dacre Montgomery was up for the role after he tweeted and deleted an image of Nightwing. In a series of tweets, McKay dismissed the report and suggests the script is still being worked on:

“We haven’t started the process of casting NIGHTWING yet but when we do you’ll hear something because our search will be far and wide. I think it [pre-production] can [start next year] provided the script is crazy great.”

The search for the new Dick Grayson won’t include Brenton Thwaites whose already set to play the role in the separate “Titans” TV series in development with plans to air next year on TNT.
