With Warner Bros. sharing updates for so many of its DCEU films at this past month’s Comic-Con, you’d be forgiven for overlooking the in-production films that were absent from the presentations. Films like Chris McKay‘s Nightwing. Earlier this year, McKay explained that his Nightwing movie would serve as a kind of counter to the traditional Batman films - exploring what it’s like to come from nothing instead of a life of privilege - and fans who loved The LEGO Batman Movie were cautiously optimistic about a standalone Dick Grayson film. So it came as a bit of a surprise, then, when the DCEU executives remained silent on their latest project.
In 17 days of release, The LEGO Batman Movie has made $133 million in the United States, and nearly $100 million overseas. Not too shabby; about 17 days of release, its predecessor, The LEGO Movie, had made $183 million domestically. The good, toyetic times will keep rolling with The LEGO Movie 2 which, at one point was going to be directed by Chris McKay, until he left the project to make LEGO Batman. Speaking about the project on the Shanlian on Batman podcast he revealed a little bit about what the film is going to be.
