We Might Be Getting a Nightwing Movie From the LEGO Batman Director

We Might Be Getting a Nightwing Movie From the LEGO Batman Director

Dick Grayson, the former Robin and occasional Batman now known as Nightwing, has a lot of fans on social media. Fans consider Nightwing as a great choice for a live-action movie because of his bright nature which will give some lightness to the already dark DC extended universe. Although it can't capitalize the original appeal of the first movie, "The LEGO Batman Movie" strikes gold with a relevant message, driven by fresh characters and incredible attention to detail, making it a worth-while experience for the whole family.

In 2014, The Lego company teamed up with Warner Brothers to make "The Lego Movie". Once they both return to Gotham City, Grayson, as Nightwing, often partners with Batman but supports his own solo comic series.

The LEGO Batman Movie has earned $182 million worldwide since opening on February 10.




McKay's animated Lego Batman Movie has been universally praised and Warner Bros. are keen for him to bring his humor and understanding of the Batman characters to Nightwing. This time, it's a Nightwing movie, to be directed by The LEGO Batman Movie's Chris McKay and written by The Accountant's Bill Dubuque. Whether it's visual gags, one-liners, or even a mundane conversation, all of the jokes hit and I wouldn't be shocked if this movie ends up being the best comedy of the year. If you're a fan of Batman, especially, this film pulls no punches when it comes to poking jokes at his history, from his more obscure and ridiculous villains from the comics to the over-the-top gags of the 1966 Adam West Batman TV series to the nearly comedic level of darkness Batman has acquired from his more recent cinematic outings.

Happy bat-movie feelings have been few and far between and long overdue.

LEGO Batman could do a lot worse as a kids' movie. It'll be exciting to see what the next installment in the franchise will be, as the Lego Batman proved they know how to keep the films distinct while still playing to the strengths of the previous.
