Warner Bros. and DC Comics are expected to do a complete overhaul of their DC Comics productions, with the studio developing a ten-year plan. The studio has canceled several projects such as Wonder Twins and Batgirl for tax purposes. Batgirl was originally rumored to appear Teen Wolf stars Dylan O’Brien as Nightwing, but with the cancellation that doesn’t seem likely. One artist recently created a design of the actor as Batman’s sidekick and it makes you wonder what could have been.
An Instagram artist who goes by @Barrett.Digtal made a great piece of fan art showing O’Brien as Dick Grayson/Nightwing. The art gives the Teen Wolf star an accurate costume that looks kind of better than the one we got in Titans. While we probably won’t see it in live action, it certainly piques some interest. You can check out the fan art below!
“I’m not really ruling anything out, so it’s not like I wouldn’t entertain it if something came my way and if it was like with a very talented filmmaker that I was desperate to work with and if it was a very cute version was on the side.” O’Brien recently shared with The Playlist. “I tend to want to find these kind of smaller character roles for myself. Just because it’s been really long and I haven’t gotten a lot of chances to do it, so it’s just like, I think just for now at least, more fulfilling to experiment like that and challenge myself in that way… I’m definitely not closed off to anything.”
Previously Batgirl was canceled by Warner Bros. Discovery the actor was said to appear as Dick Grayson/Nightwing. O’Brien addressed the recent rumors surrounding him to possibly play Dick Grayson/Nightwing in DC’s upcoming Batgirl movie.
“Yeah, it’s only happened to me once or twice,” O’Brien explained at the time. “It’s probably the most prominent time, you know? And, yeah, I always pick up the phone and say, ‘Hey, what’s, you know, what’s going on on the professional side of things?’
Batgirl is directed by Bad Boys for Life‘s Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi, with a script written by Christina Hodson, whose work includes Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and the upcoming The flash Movie. The film is expected to see JK Simmons reprising his role as Commissioner James Gordon, Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Brendan Fraser joining the cast as Firefly, Ivory Aquino as Alysia Yeoh, and Jacob Scipio, Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson , and Ethan Kai currently play unknown roles.
