It has been six years since we first heard Chris McKay was in talks to direct a Nightwing movie, and he still hasn’t given up hope.
It has been some time since we heard anything from McKay about the status of Nightwing. The turnover at DC Studios would lead many people to believe the project is over, but it seems that McKay still believes in it.
Speaking recently with SFX Magazine, McKay said, “Look, I am still hoping to do something with it. Now that James Gunn is involved… I haven’t had any conversations with him or anybody over there, but I love that character. I hope I can do something with him. That would be amazing.”
While the movie has been discussed for years, it’s clear that McKay never gives up on his ongoing promises that Nightwing isn’t dead .
Could we eventually see a Nightwing movie? Gunn has already stated that we know less than half of the projects planned for the first chapter of the DCU, so you definitely can’t say ‘never’ quite yet.
