While Warner Bros. is going through a restructuring of their DC Comics film slate, questions are starting to arise about that Nightwing film again.
The Batman LEGO Movie director Chris McKay has been reportedly working on a film about Dick Grayson for sometime, but delays and pushbacks have prevented the project from really getting going.
Back in February, McKay commented that a script was nearly completed, saying they were ‘taking their time’ with the film.
The update is: The first draft of the script is nearly done… but we are taking our time with this movie. It will be a long process.

That’s kind of the last thing we heard about the film, other than the ubiquitous casting rumors of who may play the character in a live-action film. Which would be strange, considering the character’s use and importance on DC Universe tentpole television series Titans, but we’ve got two different The Flashes in the film/tv realm, so maybe not so strange.
Just yesterday, McKay answered yet another question about the Nightwing film, this time about the film being “no more”, to which McKay responded:
No. You’re going to have to wait tho. Keep hope alive. To paraphrase Dick Grayson: Nightwing lives. Always.

This is far from a confirmation, but it’s also the closest thing we’ve gotten to an actual production update since Valentine’s Day.
Would you even want to see a Nightwing feature film? Who would you want to see in the role?
