Nightwing Director Promises He Isn’t Leaving the DC Movie

Anyone concerned that Chris McKay might be exiting Warner Bros.’ planned Nightwing film can rest assured the LEGO Batman Movie director isn’t going anywhere.

The filmmaker responded Thursday on Twitter to a fan’s suggestion that he might follow in the footsteps of Joss Whedon, who announced his exit from Batgirl. “I’m pretty sure WB are going to have to fire me if they want me to leave Nightwing,” McKay wrote.

McKay’s comment follows reports that he’s in negotiations to director Dungeons & Dragons for Hasbro and Paramount Pictures, a commitment that would seemingly point to at least a significant delay for any Nightwing plans.

Whedon is only the most recent departure by a filmmaker from a DC Extended Universe project, following Zack Snyder’s exit from Justice League in the wake of a family tragedy, Rick Famuyiwa’s split from The Flash (now titled Flashpoint), and Ben Affleck’s vacancy of the director’s chair of The Batman.

McKay has been vocal about his fondness for DC’s Dick Grayson. While not much is known about this Nightwing, the director has gone out of his way to show he aims to make the most faithful film he possibly can.
