The DCEU has a Nightwing film in development with Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie) set to direct.
McKay has gone on the record numerous time talking about how he is only going to cast an actor that is willing to undergo intense physical training in order to be able to do the stunts required to pull off a convincing Dick Grayson/Nightwing, who is an experienced acrobat/combat fighter.
Today’s FanCast asks the question: Who do you want to see cast as Dick Grayson/Nightwing?
My pick: Steven Yeun.
I know you’re probably thinking wait, aren’t you the guy who opposes race swapping popular comic book characters just to fill the diversity checklist? Yes, yes I am. But there’s something about Yeun that when I look at him Nightwing just springs to mind. It’s a casting I just totally see working. I think he would have a good back-and-forth between Batfleck, and he’s got the wavy dark locks down pat. I’m not the only one who sees this guy as being the perfect Dick Grayson!
That’s my FanCast for Nightwing. What’s yours?
