Aside from DC animated's impressive track record, there's quite a few reasons to get excited for Son of Batman. Not only will it introduce Damian Wayne to the animated universe, but it'll also include Talia al Ghul, Deathstroke, and Ra's al Ghul. Well, now you can officially add Nightwing to the list, too! A close-up image of the character has been released and Sean Maher will voice the character.

Dig the design, Viners? Let us know below! Son of Batman will be yours to purchase on May 6.

Shame that NPH isn't coming back. I liked him in Red Hood

Like an older version of the Young Justice Nightwing

Something looks off. Face is too small and the chest is too big. The design itself is reminiscent of Young Justice, which is good. But the hair looks kind goofy, I think - hopefully it's just this one still though.

Nice.

I love it, young justice may be Nightwing's best costume imho. Not to mention the "mullet" actually looks good.

Sweet.

Wouldn't mind more blue though

Looks good, and thank god for no Neal Patrick Harris this time.

Cool.

This movie is set in the Young Justice Universe. I'm choosing to believe that now. I don't care if I'm wrong.

The trailer looked great, this image of Nightwing looks fine to me, I can't wait for the flick.

Agreed.

I think its not that bad.

@supbatz: you dont know what you are talking about? must the animation be perfect? you are the kind of person that complains on any little mistakes.

Yeah, I think the size of the emblem makes his chest look broader, which makes his head look smaller.

Overall I dig it, the proportions aren't off enough that it bothers me.

Posted by Mapuia_Ralte

Neck too long, head too small, chest too wide, blue still too less or maybe I expect too much.

@jonny_anonymous: im sure that's intentional with how much people loved young justice

Posted by Captain13

Phil Bourassa jumped the shark with the Flashpoint Paradox. Call me when he goes back to the style he used in Young Justice, Justice League: Doom, and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths.

Posted by SeAnonymous

kinda bothers me how he looks really, REALLY buff. Considering how his face is human sized but his body is like someone of batman's structure.

This could be the most Nightwing for a while after Forever Evil

Posted by AmazingWebHead

Is this gonna be Under the Red Hood all over again, where every other Bat-Family member except Bats, Nightwing, and whichever Robin is crucial to the plot are all cut out?

Posted by Jayc1324

Looks good. A little too much black though but its all good

Posted by deaditegonzo

It looks cool. I actually really dig his hair lol >.>

It's not about other Bat family characters.

I'm hyped for this movie man. Love Damian, and it looks well made.

True, but they still played just as big a part as Nightwing.

@allstarsuperman: Yes. (°_°)

My mind can't comprehend your lack of respect toward Barney Stinson o_o my lord man Neil Patrick Harris was the star of what I consider to be the single greatest episode of Batman the Brave and the Bold. Eh I respect your opinion I just have to disagree man the guy has a lot of talent but maybe that's just me and my respect for good actors who can do showtunes.

Posted by AllStarSuperman

@chrisj_1: you ever seen Harold and Kumar movies?

Posted by Alak

I'm digging it. I hope he has some good showings and doesn't just become cannon fodder for Deathstroke.

Posted by LyraFay

Yeah his face looks a bit off (Steve Trevor's face was so off in Justice League: War that it made me laugh.) But he doesn't look bad to say the least.

Edited by blackhawk000111

Love it

Posted by ZephyrX26

I'm loving the Firefly reunion that's happening on this one; first Morena as Talia (perfect casting, imo) and now Sean as Nightwing! I liked NPH in Red Hood too, but this will be interesting. can't wait for this one to come out!

From the head up it does seem a little off. Like he proportions aren't quite right or maybe the longer hair in the back make it look like that. Still, look fine to me. Not as good as his Young Justice look, but close enough. I'm more worried that they are using him in place of Tim. So this means that Damian is going to beat Dick up and have a rivalry with him, which doesn't fit at all.

@lyrafay: Superman's face was hysterical in flashpoint paradox.

Posted by CyberWarrior

Pretty nice. Too big chest though.

Awesome design
