A couple of days ago it was learned that LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay is in talks to direct the live-action DCEU Nightwing movie.
Recently while appearing on the Shanlian on Batman podcast for LEGO Batman, Chris McKay offered a tidibt about Nightwing in that he wants to do a "really interesting, intriguing, action-packed character movie."
Obviously McKay can't offer too much as he said: "Thereâ€™s not much I can talk about about the movie. I donâ€™t even have a contract. Anything can happen.â€ť
McKay also took to Twitter with: "Sorry caught between my excitement about talking about NW and what I can and cannot say about it."
Update: McKay also offered:
â€śBruce Wayne in my mind came from privilege and I think thatâ€™s why heâ€™s more dour and angry. Heâ€™s self-made as far as his becoming all of these cool things we like him forâ€¦ Dick Grayson didnâ€™t come from that. Dick Grayson came from a circus family. Essentially people who arenâ€™t rich and they are self-made. Theyâ€™re entertainers. Theyâ€™re gymnasts. Theyâ€™re people who live hand-to-mouth and thatâ€™s something that informs him and his attitudeâ€¦ heâ€™s a fascinating guy to me, because he had all the same things happen to him. Heâ€™s got some of the same negatives as Bruce Wayne and then from a society standpoint â€” obviously he was adopted into Bruce Wayneâ€™s lifeâ€¦ but he didnâ€™t start that way. Heâ€™s this guy who has all these negatives and then even more negatives and yet he remainsâ€¦ Those are things why I like Dick Grayson, why I like the idea of Nightwing as a movie.â€ť
The live-action Nightwing movie is currently in developentÂ written byÂ The AccountantÂ screenwriterÂ Bill Dubuque.
LEGO Batman currently has a $226 million worldwide gross at the box office.
