Trivia / Nightwing

  • What Could Have Been: According to Wizard magazine, Nightwing was slated to encounter Two-Face and a "reformed" Joker in the aftermath of the Cataclysm arc. This was before No Man's Land was decided upon instead.
    • He also could have been dead had Dan Didio had his way in Infinite Crisis. Geoff Johns outright refused to write it, so while we ended up with the crappy Bruce Jones "One Year Later" story with tentacle monster!Jason Todd, Dick is still amongst the living.
      • In addition, had Dick Grayson died, Jason Todd would've taken up his role as Nightwing, thus explaining why he was impersonating him in the above story (before being turned into a tentacle monster). This would also explain Dick's out of character behavior in Outsiders, as Winick was likely writing under the impression that Jason was Nightwing instead of Dick.
    • At the height of the success of the Batman movie franchise in the 90's, there were plans for a Nightwing Spin-Off starring Chris O'Donnell. The film was scrapped after Batman & Robin underperformed at the box office and got extremely negative reviews.
