NIGHTWING Director Chris McKay is Taking His Time to Get the Movie Right


A few months ago, it was announced that The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay is taking the helm of a Nightwing movie for Warner Bros. and DC Films. The script is being written by The Accountant's Bill Dubuque. Since the initial announcement, we've had few updates, and the film wasn't mentioned at WB's San Diego Comic-Con panel last month. Turns out there's a specific reason for that.

On Twitter, McKay says that he's not rushing Nightwing just to hit a release date. He's taking the time he needs to make a genuinely great movie. Thus, it wasn't listed in DC Films' next wave of titles at SDCC.


This is definitely encouraging news, as it speaks to McKay's dedication to creating a great portrayal of Dick Grayson. Rushing big movies just to hit specific release dates (cough Suicide Squad cough) can lead to the final product being underwhelming, but giving the creative team plenty of time to make the product is promising. Hopefully, this is something WB and DC will do to the rest of their films.

Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
