Fan made superhero films are a dime a dozen, but there is one in production in Canada right now that promises to be a little different. With a budget of $100,000, shot of RED epic cameras and featuring a cast of prolific Canadian actors, the trailer for Nightwing should be with us by the end of January. Here we have your very first look at some stills..







Nightwing himself will be played by actor/stuntman Brady Roberts, and we'll have an interview with him coming up in the new year in which he'll tell us all about the production.

Going for the New 52 look? Sigh...

Looking pretty neat.

Not that great, but a well film fan made flick.

Too bad a true to Nightwing movie would in all probability go through the hollywood 'editing' process.
Danbojohnj - 12/30/2012, 8:43 AM
IF they wanted to carry on Nolans vision in the future JGL should become Nightwing but he gets killed off by the Joker within the first half hour and Bats has to comeback,middle aged with no back up billions to sort it out.
This fanfilm looks a little cheap for 100 grand though.

@Manofsuperguy

Why would he exclusively fight Batman's villains?

In all probability it would make at least as much money as Thor, and more if the actor is not only talented, but physical as needed for the role.

I think a Nightwing TV series would be a spectacular move. You don't need Bruce/Batman - simply start with his quitting/being fired as Robin and take it from there. Include a few Titans along the way, Slade as the main protagonist... I'd watch it.
ShadowOfTheWeb - 12/30/2012, 8:49 AM
To me nightwing will always be in the blue and black outfit...
jimpinto24 - 12/30/2012, 8:49 AM
A Nightwing TV series or a movie would be great.
Hellsboy - 12/30/2012, 8:50 AM
I think his costume could be a bit better,and a tv series would be the way to go with him but they'd need a budget twice as big as arrow to pull it off

Speaking of fan films the Judge Minty film should be about ready,yes?
INSTANTJUSTICE - 12/30/2012, 8:56 AM
Judge Minty is finished and being shown at festivals.
DCjohnny - 12/30/2012, 9:09 AM
nice ...... looking forward for it....
Killuminatic - 12/30/2012, 9:31 AM
@LEVI that is actually Grif... If you actually had the time to deduct his shit, go to his profile check out his article contributions, he's the genuine Grif. Plus how you don't arlready realise from the fact that he posts the same videos as Grif amazes me. Do you really think people actually played his videos? No. So from that fact; how do you think this "imposter" would have access to Grif's videos? Either he has been monitoring Grif for a long time and saved all his videos up until this point and found the perfect oppurtunity... Or he's just actually the real Grif. Hell, ever since Grif was banned, I actually tried to contact him and the only way, based on my knowledge, was gonna have to be through youtube and even I couldn't find his videos. btw, @LEVI please don't misconceive me as coming off rude or anything, I just wanted to point out that's the real Grif so apologies for any type type of insult/offence I may have put forward. Did I just type a whole paragraph about Grif?!?!
bbarber2323 - 12/30/2012, 9:32 AM
Levitikuz....that is Grif you dumb ass. God I can't stand you...
bbarber2323 - 12/30/2012, 9:34 AM
Killuminatic...you don't need to apologize to this clown. He brings absolutely nothing to this site. Even his Avatar pics are annoying!!
MutantEquality - 12/30/2012, 9:43 AM
I just imagined a superhero movie with a bunch of Canadian accents.

NO THANK YOU.
ToddDamian - 12/30/2012, 9:43 AM
I like the red Nightwing/Renegade costume. The blue's cool but the red really pops and goes with the colour theme for Robin/Red Robin/Red Hood. I wonder if the Joker's gonna shoot Barbara in this, or if the Hawaiian shirt's just an homage to that.
JimmyPesto - 12/30/2012, 9:45 AM
I think the stills look good.
Fastestmanalive - 12/30/2012, 9:46 AM
Looks pretty cool
INFO - 12/30/2012, 9:49 AM
Looks cool hopefully they got a nice script and a great screenplay for it to pull off from the action scenes fan films are getting pretty famous good for them.
Wingding - 12/30/2012, 9:56 AM
@ShadowOfTheWeb

Exactly!
toco89 - 12/30/2012, 9:59 AM
@manofsuperguy

Who of the casual audience knew or cared about Bane or Ra's Al Ghul before the TDK trilogy?
SpideyQuad - 12/30/2012, 10:23 AM
I know it looks cool but in reality who in their right mind would wear anything red as a superhero costume. Talk about a walking target! I think second would be bright yellow LOL
SpideyQuad - 12/30/2012, 10:25 AM
imadick : good post, until the insult that the end. Turn to when into an epic loss, but then I looked closely at your name. A rose is a rose is a rose.

Hopefully you have a better outlook on yourself in the future
Ranger14 - 12/30/2012, 10:27 AM
Award winning actor...yeah...a webfest gives him an award for acting in a comedy web series called The Gym. Not to be taken too seriously, if you actually watch an episode. I have never seen such cardboard and blah delivery of lines in my life. What were they thinking?
Jhuntdaprodigy - 12/30/2012, 10:34 AM
They'll never make a Nightwing film, he has no type of individual rouges gallery has no strong supervillains I know of, none that could carry a 2 hour movie. If they are indeed rebooting the Batman film series in 2016, it would be dumb as hell not to have Dick Grayson. After the end of the second movie in that series maybe, he could go off to become Nihghtwing, and then they could maybe spin that off into a Teen Titans film
Ranger14 - 12/30/2012, 10:37 AM
For reference purposes.


ToddDamian - 12/30/2012, 10:41 AM
@SpideyQuad In reality, who in their right mind would wear a domino mask as a superhero costume?

@Jhuntdaprodigy If they started the movie with Nightwing already established in Bludhaven and Grayson on the police force, used Blockbuster as the mob boss who hires a couple of smaller rogues as lackeys, and distanced the whole thing from Batman, it could help set up Nightwing as an independent hero.
WruceBayne - 12/30/2012, 10:47 AM
Whoever's complaining about this movie BEFORE ITS EVEN FINISHED, needs to come up with a 100 grand and make a comicbook movie that's worth talking about. Until then, sit back shut your hole and wait for this to hit the Internet.
paullai24 - 12/30/2012, 12:07 PM
doesn't look so good.
RyGoR - 12/30/2012, 12:16 PM
I like that look for the joker! Paying homage to the past! I wonder how this will turn out could be good could be bad guess we'll have to wait and see
Superman8 - 12/30/2012, 12:22 PM
hmm..
Supes17 - 12/30/2012, 12:26 PM
Poison Ivy can get the D tho
:P
Ceejay - 12/30/2012, 12:50 PM
Red? meh!
HeadPool420 - 12/30/2012, 1:27 PM
They just need to make a Batman Arkham City movie with Nightwing popping up to help. That way we get a movie with villians and a supporting cast thats more like the comic.
johnblake - 12/30/2012, 2:48 PM
CAN WE PLEASE GET ANOTHER BATMAN VILLAN BESIDE THE JOKER. i know hes epic but its already been done a bunch.
xRelentlessx - 12/30/2012, 3:05 PM
Poison Ivy looks really....idk lazily done...
dollstix - 12/30/2012, 3:28 PM
Just as an idea and worth trying...
12 hour episodes set in Gotham with Nightwing as the hero but...
He's only in it at the beginning and end to bookmark 2-3 episodes of different characters living in Gotham and becoming Poison Ivy,Catwoman, Clayface etc etc
A bit like Crash so the final two parter is the payoff when all the arcs converge on the battle royale as it were.
Think Arkham City meets the Wire meets Batman Year One.
Killuminatic - 12/30/2012, 4:27 PM
@Dexter Did you not read the whole thing I posted? Once again, if you used your brain and clicked on "dickbelt's" contributions, it's all Grif's articles from way back. Want more proof? Check the comments of the articles... Who is really gonna be that sad enough to imitate Grif, and then get away with it? Let alone perfect him, which dickbelt has done because well... He is Grif!
