Chris Mckay, the director of the upcoming Warner Bros. and DC feature film Nightwing, has taken to Twitter to tell DC fans that everyone has the opportunity to audition for the role. That’s right, Nightwing is holding an open casting call for Dick Grayson.
“Have an agent or manager submit your work. To the studio,” McKay wrote on Twitter Monday night. “An agent or manager protects you and also is an endorsement of your character. It means you take yourself and your career seriously…and so does someone else.”
Following that tweet, McKay confirmed that the casting call would indeed be open to anyone. However, he also noted that the chances of actually landing the part would be a one in a million kind of thing.
There will be an open casting call but that is like Vegas odds for sure. Don’t leave your career up to chance. Believe in yourself. Bet on yourself. Get an agent or a manager.

Nightwing, aka Dick Grayson, is perhaps best known for being the original Robin. Grayson was the youngest member of a family of acrobats known as the Flying Graysons. He was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and illustrator Jerry Robinson, and first introduced in Detective Comics No. 38 in April 1940. After his parents were murdered, he was taken in as the legal ward of Bruce Wayne/Batman. He then became Robin and teamed up with the Dark Knight on many an adventure to fight crime in the city of Gotham.
