Nightwing director Chris McKay stated through social media that if he leaves Nightwing it is only if Warner Bros. fires him as he is sticking with the movie. It was recently announced that Chris McKay may direct a new Dungeons & Dragons adaptation, which began discussions of this possible exit.
I’m pretty sure WB are going to have to fire me if they want me to leave Nightwing…..

McKay said not too long ago that Nightwing is still in development, but that they are taking their time and not rushing it, showing further that he wants to get the film right.
