McKay made his feature film directorial debut earlier this year with The Lego Batman Movie. The animated DC film was met with a glowing reception from both fans and critics, earning an impressive 91% Rotten Tomatoes score as well as the coveted “Certified Fresh” seal of approval.
McKay’s success with The Lego Batman Movie gave him instant credibility with the DC fanbase and now he looks to keep that good will going with his take on Nightwing. As fans of the comics already know, Nightwing is the alter ego of Dick Grayson, the former Robin who one day decides to step out from under Batman’s shadow and forge a superhero identity of his own.
Previously, Michael Cera voiced a younger iteration of the character in The Lego Batman Movie. Next year, actor Brenton Thwaites will take on the role of Robin in the live-action Titans television series.
