Nightwing Director Teases Updates For Early Next Year

This past weekend, Warner Bros. gave an update on their DC slate. The slate had a few notable omissions, and one such omission came in the form of Nightwing.

Nightwing is a film that not only was announced to have been in development, but that had a director attached in the form of The LEGO Batman Movie helmer, Chris McKay. But don’t take that as a confirmation that this film is in the toilet. From the sound of it, they’re still very much making progress, and if we’re to take McKay’s own word for it, we can expect some real updates in a couple months.

Here’s what McKay said on Twitter:

This is great news for a lot of fans. Nightwing is a character who has had a lot of stories told about him in both comics and animation, but the closest we ever got to him was a nod in Robin’s costume design in the god-awful Batman and Robin film.

Plus, McKay is someone who has proven with The LEGO Batman Movie that he has a great affinity for the Batman brand, and that he brings with him a whole wealth of knowledge of the character’s history — which includes the likes of Nightwing.

Do you think Nightwing will ever see the light of day? Let us know your thoughts down below!
