The Batgirl news is nonstop these days, as production begins to ramp in Glasgow. The city has been transformed into Gotham City once more for the upcoming HBO Max film. Just recently we saw quite a few interesting details from the set, one specifically featuring a mural depicting not only Batman but also Robin. The character’s future in the DCEU has been a bit questionable, as previous entries in the franchise hinted there was no active Robin. Yet, the multiversal shenanigans from The Flash may change that, as a new rumor has found its way online stating that Dick Grayson will make his debut in Batgirl.
MyTimeToShine, who we have previously reported one hinting at a soft-reboot of the DCEU, has shared that Warner Bros. has already found its choice to take on the role of Robin in the upcoming film. Not only that, but she also hints that Batgirl could possibly set up a Nightwing spinoff, which has been stuck on the back burner in DCEU’s infamous development hell for years.
This tweet also got the attention of KC Walsh, another source who provided quite a few insights in the past, who gave a rather curious response to highlight the statement. So, there might be more to this story.
Back in 2017, it was announced that the director of The Lego Batman Movie, Chris Mckay, would be directing a solo Nightwing film with Bill Dubuque set to write the script for the film. Like many other projects that spawned during the early days of the DCEU, it never went anywhere. The project was one of the few that even had someone attached to direct. Of course, there has not been an official word yet and so we still have to take it with a grain of salt for now.
