Nightwing for The Batman?
"Perhaps Dick Grayson’s most well-known comic-book moment is when he made the adult move to hang up his circus-inspired red, green and yellow Robin suit and create a new vigilante identity for himself, becoming Nightwing and letting it be known that Batman wasn’t in charge of his superhero life anymore.
From the moment it was revealed in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” that a Robin suit vandalized by the Joker hung in the batcave as a memorial to a fallen sidekick, many fans have wondered if WB/DC’s connected, live-action movie universe would give them even more of Robin. Those who have read the comics know that the Robin killed by the Joker was actually Jason Todd, who became Robin after Grayson moved to become Nightwing — thereby implying that Nightwing exists in this DC universe (Todd years later would come back to life as the Red Hood — another great movie idea just sitting there waiting to be adapted)."
