Ryan Reynolds in Nightwing the live-action television series.

This is mostly a joke but would totally be cool if it actually happened. Everyone says that Ryan Reynolds is practically going to play like a million different characters in comic book movies. (Green Lantern, Deadpool, Hannibal King). Warner Bros proposed a tv show idea called THE GRAYSONS. It was supposed to chronicle the lives of the Flying Graysons before Dick's parents were killed and Bruce turns Dick into Robin. It got shot down because it seems too boring for a family of acrobats to just traveling around in a circus for a few seasons and not having much to deal with. So why make it Pre-Batman? They should make it Post-Batman! How about a Nightwing live-action series with Ryan Reynolds as Dick Grayson (as long as he dyes his hair black). He could have the iconic black and blue Nightwing costume (no bird head) and fight crime in Bludhaven. It really doesn't have to have any ties to Batman and Gotham City so it could work. But I just randomly thought of this while walking down the street and thought it would be cool to post.

Ryan Reynolds doesn't really fit the part of Nightwing, plus he'd never drop down to the small screen while his career is so good.

Ryan as Dick no....
 
I've been thinking and saying that a series of Dick Grayson after his days of robin and before his days of Nightwing would be awesome if done right

@Nighthunter: What would he be doing in between Robin and Nightwing? Going to college?

I always pictured it as Batman begins on a more international way. Dick Grayson: The lost years

This might come as a shock to some people but there are actually other actors out there who could take on other super hero related roles.

Enough with Reynolds overexposure. I'm still not convinced that he would make a decent Hal...

Maybe in a movie, but not in TV
