Lewis Tan known for roles Deadpool 2 and the Netflix’s series Iron Fist, recently met with Warner Bros. for a role in a DC Film, as he confirmed in an interview with The Hashtag Show, stating that he met with DC, that Nightwing director Chris Mckay was following him on Twitter and that Nightwing was mentioned during his talks with DC, when they spoke of him doing something for DC.
“I know Chris McKay wants a martial artist, right, so that’s out there,” Tan said. “He’s following me on Twitter, you know…there’s a lot of good juju vibes out there for that. Nothing that I can say that is confirmed. This is a project that he’s still developing and I sat down with DC, with some of the executives at DC, and they’re big fans, I’m a big fan, obviously. My father came to America, because of Batman (1989) and, you know, I definitely want to see that come full circle and give back. Im not trading in my Marvel roots, because they started me, but DC started my dad, so it would be nice to go over there and play around and find the right thing. So we’re looking for the right thing and there were a lot of different talks and Nightwing was one of those that were mentioned, so we’ll see.”
Tan then later went on to clarify on his official Twitter account that his interview with DC for a role wasn’t specifically for Nightwing.
Hey guys, I love all the support but to clarify what I said in the interview, I met with DC but not specifically for that project. I love Nightwing and if the chance came I would love to show what I would do with the character ❤️ #nightwing #lewistan pic.twitter.com/r6M2QZllAc
