Nightwing movie in development
Get excited DC and comic fans as it looks like we’re getting our first ever Nightwing movie. Earlier today it was announced that Matt Reeves will be directing the upcoming Batman movie and off of the tail of that announcement we get this one.
The Nightwing movie will be directed by Chris Mckay who just recently directed the LEGO Batman movie. Bill Dubuque will also be writing the script, he wrote The Accountant which starred Ben Affleck.
Nightwing currently has no release date window but I think it’s a safe bet to assume it will be coming sometime after ‘The Batman’ releases, so most likely after 2018.
In the comics Nightwing goes by the name Dick Grayson and was part of Circus family known as the Flying Graysons, his family was killed and he became the first Robin to Batman. Dick later became Nightwing and the Robin mantle was passed on to Jason Todd who was most likely the Robin that Joker killed in the DCEU movies.
Hopefully we’ll get more news on the Nightwing and Batman movie soon.
