Warner Bros. is working on a Nightwing movie

Warner Bros Pictures are developing a live-action movie centred on DC Comics' superhero Nightwing and the studio is reportedly eyeing filmmaker Chris McKay to direct. These include, but are not limited to, Superman and Teen Titans.

The film also features a great voice cast with Will Arnett returning as Batman, Michael Cera voicing Robin, Rosario Dawson voicing Batgirl and Zach Galifianakis voicing The Joker.

Manny Pacquiao announces he is in negotiations with Amir Khan
Duco Events, the organisers of the Horn-Pacquiao fight, have declined to comment. For Pacquiao, he insists he will take on Amir Khan .

In the comic books, Grayson is known as the first Robin, Batmans sidekick, who was taken in by the Caped Crusader after his parents were murdered.

The Nightwing project is the latest DC Extended Universe project being brought to cinemas by Warner Bros. following the release of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. What really gets under Damian's skin is the assumption that Nightwing will eventually take the mantle of Batman for good. That's wishful fanboy thinking for now, but it's a possibility. The closest thing to a Boy Wonder appearance Nolan gave to fans was Joseph Gordon Levitt's John Blake in "The Dark Knight Rises". But the real question is whether the public is willing to accept anyone other than Bruce Wayne as Batman.

US Defense Secretary Mattis: No plan to seize Iraqi oil
Mattis told reporters that USA rules of engagement in the fight against ISIS will not be changed from the Obama administration's. Mattis remarks are only the latest example of his policy differences with Trump. "Maybe we'll have another chance".

But we are now in a new age when it comes to DC Comics on film. Whether it's visual gags, one-liners, or even a mundane conversation, all of the jokes hit and I wouldn't be shocked if this movie ends up being the best comedy of the year. The boy finds a suit, humorously tears off the trousers and, much to Batman's irritation, accepts his role as trusty sidekick Robin.

Hopefully, though, Chris McKay will be allowed to maintain moments of levity and silliness within this new Nightwing movie. He is, in many ways, a superhero who sees his job as fun... which might put him at odds with the rest of DC's cinematic universe, as it now stands. Long story short: go see this movie.

Coyle: Blackburn must be prepared to punish Man United
Rooney and Carrick missed Thursday's Europa League match against St Etienne with minor muscular injuries, with Mkhitaryan absent from the last-32 first leg through illness.

There are, at no times in the film, romantic relations between the Joker and Batman.
