Director Chris McKay Discusses Nightwing Film and Much More


Director Chris McKay joined the podcast Shanlian on Batman to talk about the success he has had with The Lego Batman Movie, as well as his love for DC Comics, the films , how casting Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face was his own way of bringing out the Burton sequel he wanted with that character, the character of Dick Grayson and the idea of a Nightwing film happening.

McKay was recently reported to be in talks to direct a Nightwing film with Writer Bill Dubuque already on board, but from the sounds of this interview and his retweeting of the news it looks like he might be more than just in talks.  Though he does say he has no contract yet.

Chris McKay also went to Twitter to show his excitement for the Nightwing film

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
