    That only seems likely if the film only flashes back as far as Dick transitioning to Nightwing or if there is a younger actor for a Robin as a boy or younger teen.

    McKay tweeted they haven't started casting for Nightwing yet. Rumor wrangling. ;)

    Yeah, somewhere they established Bruce in the DCEU was born in 1971 or 1972 I think. Should be easy to Google.

    The grave of Martha Wayne in BvS places the deaths of Bruce's parents in 1981, which would make Bruce at least 44 years old in 2017, depending on his year of birth.

    Plus, he said something to the effect of he's now older than his father was and Thomas was 39 when he was killed. So by BvS, he's in his early to mid 40s. I would put him at 44-45 in JL. So I would guess he started as Batman in the mid-90s, met Dick Grayson around 1999/2000, worked with him to maybe mid-2000. Then Jason after that and Joker and Harley kill him around 2010-2011.

    It is being reported that "Nightwing director Chris McKay has confirmed that Warner Bros. will hold an open casting call for the lead role of Dick Grayson."

    McKay also hinted we may hear casting news in February and might film in London.

    If I was WB I would release Nightwing instead of Cyborg in 2020

    I just find it kind of funny that this movie seems to be moving smoothly along production-wise and it's not even on the official DCEU production slate :p.

    He has good taste :p.

    I do think it would be interesting to see a live-action Superhero movie actually attempt to incorporate the pure white eyes for a domino mask, just to see whether it can work or not :).

    Those are full face-masks though, I'm talking about domino masks like Green Arrow, GA, and Nightwing.

    The closest we got was Batman's mecha suit in BvS.
