Fans have been waiting for Dick Grayson to show up in the DCEU for years. Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice build that the Robins exist in this continuity back in 2016, but the planned Nightwing film from The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay never went anywhere. Nowadays, of course, the Bat-mythos is being rebooted with The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight. But there are still plans for Grayson.
It’s funny that Keery is the one up for the part though as fans have often called for Dacre Montgomery, his co-star on the hit Netflix show, to play a Robin in the DCEU. Keery would be more of a left-field choice, but then again, director Matt Reeves has populated The Batman so far with various unexpected casting choices, from Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon to Pattinson himself.
It’s currently unclear which project Keery is on the wishlist for, but it’s likely The Batman or its sequel. Many reports and rumors have pointed to Reeves planning on introducing Dick, Barbara Gordon’s Batgirl and possibly more of Bruce Wayne’s sidekicks across his trilogy. We also know what WB wants to create several spinoffs from the mainline films as well, so whoever does play Nightwing opposite Pattinson will likely get their own movie.
Therefore, Stranger Things star Joe Kerry plays Robin in DCEU’s Nightwing, but there is no confirmed release date of the film, respectively.
