10 Characters Who Should Appear In The ‘Nightwing’ Movie

Previous1 of 11

Nightwing DCSo Michael Cera’s appearance as Dick Grayson in The LEGO Batman Movie wasn’t enough for all you Nightwing fans, huh? Well, Warner Bros. is listening and has decided to give Heroic Hollywood’s number one sidekick his own movie. The LEGO Batman Movie helmer Chris McKay has been named the director of a Nightwing movie no one saw coming. Nightwing’s place in the DC Extended Universe is up in the air. How long ago did he quit being Robin? Are he and Batman speaking right now? Why wasn’t he mentioned in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

While the movie will likely answer all those questions, I expect it will also serve as an introduction to a different corner of the Batman universe, similar to the upcoming Gotham City Sirens. Batman might be in it for a scene or two, but the movie will need a full supporting cast to help Nightwing appear as the kickass, sociable character he is. Bruce Wayne has got the brooding down, but former circus performer Dick Grayson knows how to have fun in a way his mentor doesn’t.

I love Batman, movies and Tyrion Lannister. Check me out on Youtube!

    Why do you keep going from ‘DCCU’ (which isn’t a thing) and the DCEU? Just curious.

  • Rafael Ridolph

    Hahaha you forgot Batman

  • Darthmanwe

    Raptor, Spyral agents, Wally west, and so many more names come to mind here, and instead we get Tarantula in it…. Really?

  • Maxi Iroh

    Will we have D*ck and Jason being contemporaries in this version? Maybe Bruce takes Jason in as D*ck is still Robin, maybe he feels like his experiment in training a young child has worked, because having a Nightwing that is more than 5 years older than Red Hood always bugged me, but later that would work against Batman having another Robin, making Tim way younger than Jason and D*ck, maybe 5 to 6 years.

    I know time works differently in comics, on Marvel we have time moving around 3 times slower than normal and even more so at DC where some characters age faster than others and had 2 reboots, which makes some things even more difficult.

  • Carl

    I’d say no one should appear in the Nightwing movie because they shouldn’t make it. I don’t want to see another “super” hero with no powers that’s a less interesting version of his predecessor. I guess since the DCEU has already fast forwarded Batman to past his prime this is what we are stuck with but it’s really not ideal. I guess we’ll have to wait til the next reboot to get a properly fleshed out Bat-family.

  • Ren Medina

    Roy Harper aka Arsenal, those two are bros. Tim Drake appearing doesnt make sense since there is no Robin. ORiginally Tim was the one who talked bruce wayne that batman needs a robin. Starfire being on there that could work a bit introduce another alien race. Huntress being ont here well not sure how that would work unless she is an agent of Spyral spying on him.

  • Debbie Gardiner

    I think the Huntress should definitely be in Nightwing. She appeared in a lot of Nightwing comic books and if the rumours are true about Black Canary and Strix making their debuts in ‘Batgirl’ the Huntress debuting in Nightwing sets up Birds of Prey!!

  • Christopher Davis

    Tarantuala raped Nightwing…..I think we can all agree that should stay in the comics.

  • ChokingDogs

    Thought Jason Todd’s death at the hands of the Joker part of the DCU?

    Cyborg wouldn’t make sense at all within the DCEU. You dont need Huntress or Starfire if you have Barbara, and trying to introduce starfire into this universe in this movie will take up too much story, haven’t you learned anything? We also don’t want this to turn in to relationship soap opra bs. Jason could be in flashbacks, Nightwing certainly felt guilty about his death, would be interesting to explore. This could tie into introducing Tim who want’s to be Robin. But as a villain, Jason is no match for Nightwing. BUT FOR CHRIST’S SAKE, STAY AWAY FROM TARANTULA, no one wants to be reminded of that.

  • Ray A. Smith

    Superman should def be in the film being that he’s the one who actually gave him the name Nightwing.
