Chris McKay Says Nightwing’s First Draft Of Script is “Nearly Done”
Even though there are no apparent plans in Warner’s slate for upcoming DCEU films regarding Nightwing, the pre-production of the film is taking it’s time to deliver a film worthy of one of the most cherished characters DC Comics has to offer.
A while back, director and writer Chris McKay revealed that by Valentine’s Day we would have an update regarding the film, so when a fan asked him what the surprise was, McKay shared that the first draft is nearly done, but they are taking their time with the movie, stating it will be a long process.
The update is: The first draft of the script is nearly done… but we are taking our time with this movie. It will be a long process.

When talking about why Dick Grayson intrigues him so much in Shanlian Batman Podcast, McKay revealed that is even though Grayson has been surrounded by negatives and darkness, he still remains.
“He’s a fascinating guy to me because he had all the same things happen to him. He’s got some of the same negatives as Bruce Wayne and then from a society standpoint – obviously, he was adopted into Bruce Wayne’s life – but he didn’t start that way. He’s this guy who has all these negatives and then even more negatives and yet he remains. Those are things why I like Dick Grayson, why I like the idea of Nightwing as a movie.”
All we can do is be patient and trust Chris McKay will do an amazing job with Nightwing.
