Nightwing is coming to the DC Cinematic Universe…who would have thought!
The news comes as it was announced that its director will be Chris McKay (left), who has already signed with Warner Brothers to direct the sequel for the Lego Movie. McKay replaces the duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are hard at work on the Han Solo spinoff in the Star Wars saga when it comes to the animated Lego Movie 2. However, Nightwing will be a live action film.
Nightwing is the story of Dick Grayson, a one-time famous acrobat who after the death of his family, is taken under the wing of Bruce Wayne and becomes the Boy Wonder known as Robin. However, as he grows up, the now adult Grayson decides to go off on his own and Nightwing is born!
It is unclear how Nightwing will be involved in the DCCU, but we shall see. More as this develops.
