While everyone is putting together a postmortem on Justice League, its performance, and what it means for the DC Extended Universe going forward, it sounds like business is going forward as usual — at least for the time being.

There are currently many films in the DCEU that are in development or production on some level. One of them is the impending Nightwing standalone film from LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay. One would think that the recent performance of Justice League would be pumping the breaks on productions going forward (at least until Warner Bros. figures out a new direction), but a recent tweet from McKay indicates that that isn’t the case, and that they are having an open casting call for the film.

Check out the tweet below:

So what does this mean for the movie? Well, for the time being, it looks like they’re still going forward as planned. Now, that doesn’t mean that Warner Bros. isn’t rethinking things. A lot of big decisions need to be made very soon, but it isn’t something that’s going to happen overnight. For the time being, they’re likely letting things continue until they have a new plan of action, and when that happens, we’re sure to hear about it.

But let’s actually talk about the news here. It means that they’re setting out to hire a relative unknown for the film, and that we’ll likely be getting someone more in the vein of a Chris Hemsworth — meaning they’ll likely be aiming for whoever is best for the character over star power, which is the right move.

What do you think? Is this the right move for a character like Dick Grayson? Let us know down below!
