    Well, yeah, you can tell from Lego Batman, he knows the lore.

    Hopefully this works out better for McKay then it did for Jimmy Hayward.
    Remember Him?
    He had a hit animated movie "Horton Hears A Who!" and then Warners hire him to direct a Live-Action JONAH HEX movie.
    What a horrible mess that was. :eek:

    He's about the right age range for DCEU Dick, given we're dealing with an older Batman.

    McKay confirms Nightwing hasn't been cast yet. They want to find the 'perfect person' and 'nail the script'.

    Sounds like they're a bit far off from casting Dick and starting production, though with the rumors that Dick will show up in Batgirl I wonder if McKay gets final say on casting...

    Hopefully they're doing extensive chemistry tests: the actor and Affleck, the actor and Irons, the actor with Affleck and Irons, the actor with who will play Barbara, all 4 in a room, etc.

    For however long they keep Affleck off the booze of course.

    He seems a little young for DCEU Nightwing, but I guess he could also believably double-up as Dick as Robin...

    Feels weird because we just had the character cast for a tv show.

    So, Dacre turns twenty-three this month. Yeah, he might be a bit young for the movie-verse Grayson. How old is Bruce supposed to be? If he is about fifty then Dick should probably be in his mid-thirties.

    Mid-40's I believe.

    Given that I enjoyed his role as Jason in Power Rangers, he'd great as Dick but I wonder if he has to darken his hair to play the character, given that he's a blond.

    It depends, though, on the specific details of the continuity, doesn't it? Using Frank Miller's Batman: Year One for an example, Bruce might have been 27 years old when an 8 year-old Dick Grayson was orphaned, a difference of 19 years. Before that, in the comics, it would have been about 15 years. It is only the strangeness of comic-book timekeeping that has narrowed the gap.

    Or were you referring to Bruce's age? Mid-40s might work for that. That might put Dick Grayson in his late-20s or early-30s.

    The only way I could justify the age is if he was going to play an older Dick as Nightwing and a young Dick as Robin.
