Mark Verheiden, veteran comics, television and film writer, confirmed on Thursday at his Comic-Con International panel that the Teen Titans movie he is writing will feature Nightwing and that it will be Dick Grayson behind the mask.

Verheiden, a co-executive producer and writer for Sci Fi's Battlestar Galactica, said he is still in the early stages of writing the script and and hopes the tone of the film will tread the same waters of Batman Begins and Watchmen.

"I want to play the characters in a similar tone, so that they feel real to us. I want people to understand what a great character Nightwing is," Verheiden said. "This is going to be fun, but not light and frothy. It's not silly."

Nothing else was revealed about the script, however Verheiden did say that not just one villain has been chosen. There will be multiple villains.
