THR confirming his attachment to a Nightwing feature film inspired by the DC Comics property in its shared legacy with the Dark Knight himself, Batman.
McKay will direct from a script by Bill Dubuque which focuses on the character, Dick Grayson, formerly of The Flying Graysons. Originally taken in at a young age as Bruce Wayne's legal guardian following the death of his high-flying circus family, this would be the first move in a series of events that would lead to their legendary partnership as Batman and Robin; Overtime, DC sustained the latter as it eventually branched out with at least one version of his character taking a life of its own, which we now know as Nightwing.
It is not clear if the Nightwing movie will share space with Snyder's treatment as hinted in last year's Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Then again, it's not known yet if that film's Batman actor will reprise the role in the wake of news on that end and that, in all honesty and in my opinion, feels unlikely.
At any rate, that both Batman AND Robin's evolution into Nightwing are somewhat telling of where Warner Bros. Pictures might be headed. The two properties are joined by others for the studio's otherwise expanding DC cinematic universe, which is also aming for a Gotham City Sirens film in addition to a possible Suicide Squad sequel.
Dubuque recently scripted Affleck's recent pairing with Gavin O'Connor for The Accountant. Nightwing has gradually become the center of attention for creatives online with respect to their own homages - namely YouTube channel ismahawk's Danny Shepherd who prolifically portrayed the character in Nightwing: The Series.

EXCLUSIVE: In the months since its evolution, the highly anticipated action thriller, Triple Threat (formely Makeshift Squad) has been a bookmark for many an Asian cinema fan looking to see just how this particular "Asian-Expendables" kind of movie this will bring about. The prospects have been good, too, and notably in the wake of its casting additions including headliners Tiger Chen (Man Of Tai Chi), Tony Jaa (Furious Seven) and Iko Uwais (Headshot), and particularly with 87eleven's own Chad Stahelski (John Wick: Chapter 2) behind the action scenes.
I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.
