Earlier we heard about DC Films and Warner Bros. working on a solo movie featuring Batman’s protégé cum vigilante ‘Nightwing.’ However, no further information has come out about the film, and now we hear that there is someone who is interested in playing the character of Dick Grayson.
Australian actor Dacre Montgomery impressed us earlier by playing the role of Jason Lee Scott in the Power Rangers film, and he also played Billy Hargrove on Stranger Things. He recently tweeted a photo of Nightwing (now deleted) with no other caption but just an ellipsis.
This could signify two things, either he has successfully auditioned for the role, or he is just trying to create social media frenzy about it. If it is the latter, it has helped actors in the past in a way. Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6) marshaled his fan base to bag the role of Tim Drake ultimately, and he is going to be the Beast Boy in the upcoming Titans series). We are waiting for a formal casting announcement by WB.
Till then the only Nightwing that we will see in a live-action format is Brenton Thwaites’ version in TV series Titans when it comes out next year.
