"Batman isn't interesting because he has a cool car. It's great that he has a cool car. But he's interesting because he straightens the world out. And he brings order to a very chaotic world. Especially when you're a child. You need somebody, even if it's a fictional character, to tell you that the world makes sense and that the good guys can win. That's what these heroes are for."

- Frank Miller

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the director of the hugely enjoyable LEGO Batman movie Chris McKay is being tipped to produce a live action Nightwing movie!!

He's more of an animation director so far, his track record including Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and Titan Maximum but based on LEGO Batman you can't deny he's prepared to have some FUN with the concept of costumed superheroes (which the DCCU is so sadly lacking, thought their TV shows seem to have gotten the hint).

Bill Dubuque (The Accountant) is set to write the script.

And as a bit of a teaser... perhaps! ;) )

A.V. CLUB: So you actually consciously set out to change things in the comics industry?

FRANK MILLER: Well, I set out to remark upon them. And seeing how all these heroes had been castrated since the 1950s, and just how pointless they seemed to be... In this perfect world of comic books, which was what it was back then, why would people dress up in tights to fight crime?

A.V. CLUB: Because there wasn't anything bad enough going on back then to justify that extremism?

FRANK MILLER: It was just a bunch of goofy villains. It was 1985 when I started working on this, and I thought, "What kind of world would be scary enough for Batman?" And I looked out my window.

The LEGO Batman Movie is only a couple of weeks away, and so a couple of the newer trailers seems apt

And since this is me, a couple of them focus on their take on the Boy Wonder.

So I was going to do a Batgirl retrospective or something to as a framing device, but screw it, it's New Year's, I'm lazy, and espanolbot is probably going to get to that that sooner or later. Anyways, I made this about a month back, spent many precious hours I could've used studying for finals, and when all's said and done... I regret nothing.

As first posts of 2017 go, I could do worse.
