(Virtual) Nightwing on The Batman
At the San Diego Comic-Con, the crew on THE BATMAN hinted at Nightwing's return in season five: "The biggest news for Titans fans is that Jerry O'Connell returns in season five as Nightwing. Not wanting to spoil the episode, the crew would only divulge that the episode does NOT take place in the future."
A preview of the episode, "The Metal Face Of Comedy", offers some hints on Nightwing's (virtual) appearance. Looks like the disco collar is back! Here's how the network describes the episode: "Through an unusual accident -- Joker's personality is downloaded into a nanite entity, and the digitized Joker is even more threatening than the original."
"The Metal Face of Comedy" airs this Saturday!
Nightwing has already made an appearance in season four's "Artifacts". See some screen caps here!
