Nightwing Director Hasn’t Begun Search For Dick Grayson Just Yet

Director of Warner Bros. and DC Films’ in-development Nightwing film, Chris McKay, took to Twitter to seemingly simmer down the speculation that Power Rangers and Stranger Things’ Dacre Montgomery has been cast in the lead role, as the fan-favorite Dick Grayson.

“We haven’t started the process of casting NIGHTWING yet,” McKay wrote in a post to Twitter, “but when we do you’ll hear something because our search will be far and wide.” In the replies, McKay went on to indicate that the script is “crazy great,” noting that a pre-production target of 2018 is likely.


McKay likely tweeted in response to a story that broke on various outlets, including CBR this weekend, in which Montgomery tweeted (and promptly deleted) a photo of Nightwing, simply captioning it with an ellipsis.

The director expressed similar sentiment back in September, writing on social media, “Ok since I’m worried about you having a heart attack…No one has been cast yet. We are taking our time. We are going to cast a wide net…because we need to find the perfect person. We need to get the script right. We need this to movie to blow your mind.”
