NIGHTWING Director Chris McKay Assures Fans That The Movie Is Still Happening...Eventually

It's been a long time since we've heard anything about Warner Bros.' Nightwing movie but director Chris McKay has promised fans that the DC Comics adaptation isn't dead...yet! Read on for details...

Ever since Justice League underperformed both critically and commercially, Warner Bros. has decided to hold off on announcing any sort of DC Films slate as they go back to the drawing board and take it one movie at a time. Unfortunately, many fans suspect that Nightwing is among the adaptations to be culled but what does director Chris McKay have to say about that? 

Well, as you can see below, he responded to a fan on social media to make it clear that the project isn't dead and fans are simply going to have to be patient before seeing Dick Grayson brought to the big screen.

While it certainly appears as if McKay is trying to remain optimistic, it wouldn't be remotely surprising if Nightwing has been put on the backburner, especially as the character (in his Robin persona) is currently taking centre stage in Titans on DC Universe. It's also possible that Warner Bros. is holding off and planning to introduce Dick in The Batman before moving forward with a solo flick.

What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below.
