View Full Version : robin the tv show/nightwing the movie or tv
How would you guys feel about a tv show of robin this is my version Of course you wouldn't see batman or alfred you may hear them by name that's all. no bat-girl no nightwing.
Robin-Tim Drake is a high schooler who fights in gotham city and lives with his disabled father. The lesser of the bat-villians would be in this. there would be no joker or riddler. there would be the mad hatter though. also part of the time tim would wear his costume and part of the time he wouldn't. and there would be a few cameo's that would in included certain heros like static and gear, huntress, clark, flash ect
Nightwing- Dick Grayson moves from gotham to Bludhaven The main villian is blockbuster. In this version blockbuster has no connections to gotham he just owns bludhaven.

I've always thought the initial Dixon run where Nightwing moves to Bludhaven would make an amazing movie or TV series. It's be a great cime and vigilante show. No real flashy superheroics, no goofiness, just an acrobatic vigilante trying to make a dent in a corrupt city. It'd be great. I think the comic lends itself very well to a movie or TV and you would not hav eto change much.
Then again... I thought the same thing about Birds of Prey. Geez, did they ever (&*#$ that one up.

Face it after Birds of Prey, there is no chance that another Batman inspired show would ever get on the air. Unless, they reinvent Batman for live action television which might happen thirty years from now once the budget for CGI goes up for a small screen production. Naturally, Batman would be first and then the spin-offs would likely occur. Unfortunately, none of this is mutually exclusive. http://www.comics2film.com/UBB/frown.gif

I think a nightwing tv show could work.
Lets see the strengths:
1.No powers, no money, normal place, normal job. It would be the closest thing to one of US being a superhero-it would beat Nolans 'real' batman take, as this is no millionnaire!, just like us.
2.Interesting start. Spidey had his powers thrust upon him, superman was born with them, batman trained for them. But nightwing, had batman thrust training on him, giving his life away to follow someone elses path of revenge-interesting character situation.
3. Corrupt cops and gangsters-whos the bad guy? It would be GRAY, as a pose to the black and white, good and bad we always see.
4.physically, the fights are pitched somewhere between daredevil, spidey and batman-leading to acrobatic/martial arts fights/stunts.
5.He has a strange devotion. He fights crime as a cop during the day, gets home, dons his suit, then continues (albeit illegally).
I think there is a lot of potential there and i feel that BOP aimed to cash in on Buffy and the like, whereas to be a true classic, you require a radical take. Nightwing from the people that brought us 'The Shield' would have more edge, and be a lot more inspired....

Birds of Prey would have worked had it been more like Alias or a spy/adventure show. Instead they turned it into a Mutant X knockoff. It's not like you couldn't use metahumans, but to make that the focus of the show? Gotham is more about freaks than supers. Plus they did the whole New Gotham future thing that didn't make sense even to comic readers. Of course, Birds was only somewhat set in Gotham, Oracle sent opratives across the globe, so there you have that Alias like globetrotting. Yet here you get the added fun of superheros which could be done well if not done over the top.
Of course, same with Nightwing. It's mainly a vigilante and crime show, but it also has superheros. Yet these are more realistic and vigilante heros and villians. Nothing too over the top. Lady Vic, Blockbuster even, they were supervillians. Might ahve to tone some down like that cowboy guy, but overall you could use the same characrers.
