    The Actor has a short Guest Appearence (starting around 17:45) as Dick in the final episode of Season 2 of the Red Hood Fan series. And might have a bigger role if they do a 3rd season.

    You know if Ric is always having to save the Nightwings why is he not doing this himself. He's still a crime fighter only he's reduced himself to sidekick to a bunch of people who are less skilled than him. That's just daft.

    Stop being Daft. Those years as Robin and nightwing are meaningless then what the hell are you doing being a sidekick to a bunch of amateur crime fighters?

    Doesn’t the Nightwings thing stem from writers thinking Dick can’t work alone (as a character) and would always need someone to bounce off of. I could’ve sworn James Ty said it in a tweet or interview. But it actually makes zero sense with how much character and the many traits he has, arguably the most out of all the Batfamily members.

    Tynion actually said “Dick works as a support character”, not even “bounce from others”. What a pain.

    Except in those CW filler episodes, Barry doesn't suddenly go by the name Harry and lament ever being Flash...and Oliver doesn't stop bathing and forget Felicity.

    Actually, I believe they can't. They could try to bring legal action but if the product isn't being sold to consumers and isn't claiming to own the IP's, there isn't a lot WB or DC could do, legally.

    Free fan-made products like those web series aren't like, say, Family Guy having Mickey Mouse show up for a cameo without getting Disney's "okay." The web series don't generate any revenue (as far as Im aware?) while Family Guy does, and are basically nothing more than elaborate fan fiction. Now, my wife is the law student so I *could* be wrong here, but I'm pretty sure WB would have no grounds to do anything.

    They could try to intimidate the show creators and scare them into abandoning their project, but legally? Nothing WB could actually do about it.

    Even the worse CW filler episodes are better than this.

    I know they CAN but they won't. Nothing happened with the first season and this hypothetical season would seem fine to me.

    I will admit, Brenton is about how I would imagine Dick in real life.

    The overly violent tendencies of the show though, that's a little different.

    The thing about violence is that it isn't easy. I'm not sure about you guys, but it's tremendously difficult for me to hurt another person, especially physically. But once you do, it can also be difficult to stop, at least in my experience. As far as I'm concerned, the idea that even good people like Dick can lose themselves to violence is pretty consistent with reality. It's not just a "pow" sound effect being thrown up when you hit someone, you're actively hurting another living thing. For characters like Dick who are constantly finding themselves up against the worst society has to offer, what's difficult can start to become easy. That's how I look at the excessive violence on the show. It's like a proper examination of what it means to be as capable and dangerous as they are in the comics, imo.

    Anyways, DC Comics is still going through a lot of shifts, and the newest one is the shut down of Vertigo (arguably, it's being absorbed by Black Label) and the renaming of DC Zoom and Ink to DC Kids and just DC. The important thing here is that the Dick Grayson graphic novel as part of DC Ink, is now a general or "true" DC book, which might benefit it in the long run (advertising it as an important DC book and not just their DC Ink imprint might increase demand, however small that difference is). These books are the future of comics as more and more buyers are found away from the direct market, but at bookstores and all that. Which is why it's great to see it reflected as a proper DC book going forward. Not much else to say beyond that, but at least there is some sort of future for Dick Grayson at DC that hasn't been tainted yet.
