If you're anything like me, then yesterday's announcement still has you giddy with excitement. DC and Warner Bros. officially announced a Nightwing movie with The LEGO Batman Movie's Chris McKay at the helm, and it will be the culmination of years of anticipation. Few characters have developed fan bases as rabid as Batman fans over the years, but Nightwing is definitely among those ranks.

DC has certainly experienced its fair share of missteps over the course of the last few films, but the announcement of a Nightwing movie seems like a genuine attempt to correct course. There are a lot of great reasons why this project will be exactly what the DCEU needs to get back on track, and we have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of some of the most compelling reasons. On that note, let's kick this list off with the fact that introducing Nightwing will almost certainly add some much-needed levity and charm to the DCEU.

Nightwing Is A More Lighthearted Hero

Right off the bat (sorry, I had to say it), it's worth mentioning the fact that Dick Grayson is an inherently more lighthearted character than The Dark Knight. Nightwing lost his parents at an older age than Bruce Wayne did, and those wounds healed differently as he has aged. Unlike his mentor, Dick isn't afraid of letting people in, and he's a far more social animal, which ultimately leads to plenty of wise-cracking in the face of danger. The DCEU has remained a relatively dark environment over the course of the last three movies, and a Nightwing movie could easily introduce quite a bit of humor and optimism to this landscape. If you need jokes, then Dick Grayson is your man.
