Plot details for Nightwing are still under wraps but its expected to follow Dick Grayson who became the first Robin in the Batman mythology after Bruce Wayne took him in following the death of his parents, The Flying Graysons who were murdered at the circus. An open casting call for the role of Dick Grayson was announced last month. McKay has previously expressed that whoever is going to play the role of Dick Grayson is going to have to share that same level of passion he has in order to achieve the necessary performance to bring the character to life.
McKay is directing the Nightwing film from a script written by Bill Dubuque (The Accountant). The director has teased the film as a badass action movie featuring stunts and practical effects. He has also confirmed the film will feature many nods to Dick Grayson’s past as a circus performer in Haly’s Circus.
As of now, Nightwing does not have a release date. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Nightwing and the future of the DC Extended Universe as we learn it.
