During the events of the Dark Knight Rises, Detective John Blake helped Batman during Bane’s attack on Gotham. After the attack, John Blake was approached by Batman to help him keep Gotham city safe. John Blake modified a spare Batman suit for his liking, but wanted to wear as little of a mask as possible. Lucius Fox developed a pair of sonar goggles specially for Blake, modified from a pair of spy goggles worn by Selina Kyle. After some training and preparationg, Blake took some of his old police night sticks, strapped them to his side, and fought to protect Gotham City from criminals as the vigilante hero, Nightwing!
Pretty cool story huh? It’s the story that I wrote in my head for what could happen after the events of The Dark Knight Rises. I just couldn’t get out of my head the image of a movie concept Nightwing, so I had to make it. He’s made using the body of a Movie Masters Dark Knight Rises Batman, the head from a MM John Blake, the goggles from a MM Catwoman, and the belt, holster, and night sticks from a Marvel Legends movie Daredevil.
I removed the belt and cape and filled in the gaps left from them. Then, I had to resculpt the chest area to make the Nightwing symbol, and sculpted onto the shoulders as well. I also sculpted onto the bicep areas, and removed the scallops on his forearms and sculpted over that to smooth it out. Then I just had to paint the mask on, rework the Catwoman goggles to fit on John Blake’s head AND be removable, and attach the Daredevil belt and then paint everything up accordingly. And now John Blake is ready to roam the streets of Gotham City as Nightwing, protecting all the citizens!
