Here’s some good news for the Dave Franco fans. We will get to see more of the actor as he has a couple of movies hitting the box office this year as well as three more in the making. Also, the actor hinted on the red carpet of CinemaCon in Las Vegas that he might chip in as the voice over as well as act for two more big productions.
As Franco promoted the Lego Ninjago movies at the CinemaCon, he also had some time with the press where he spoke about Season 3 of Young Justice which is slated for a comeback. Fans can’t wait to watch him play Edward Nygma, the Riddler again but if only things would work out! “Only if you beg for it,” Franco was heard saying. “No one is knocking on my door, but you tell them and I am there.”
The ideal antagonist in Season 3 of Young Justice would be the same dark power which plotted in the backdrop of Darkseid and Apokolips – both DC Extended Universe movies. The same villain was seen in Young Justice: Invasion and in the final episode of Darkseid.
Vandal Savage led the Warworld through Rimbor to reach Apokolips and fled from Earth. A dark, threatening silhouette welcomes Savage on the surface of Apokolips where he reaches through a boom tube. Though his identity is not revealed fans know for sure that it can be none other than Darkseid.
In case things don’t work out for Young Justice, Franco would still be an ideal fit for another DC project: Nightwing.
Nightwing, a.k.a. Dick Grayson, made his debut as the original Robin in the Detective Comics #38, way back in 1940. Creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger were accompanied by illustrator Jerry Robinson gave shape to this iconic character having similarity with Bruce Wayne, and he was inducted as his formal ward. He then took the title of Robin and helped Batman across many incidents in Gotham City.
Nightwing is also among the number of films in the Warner Bros. and DC Films bucket. The others are Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman. Flash, Green Lantern Corps, The Batman, Gotham City Sirens, two Justice League movies and sequels to Suicide Squad and Man of Steel.
Among these, Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins will hit theaters in June 2017 followed by Zack Snyder directed Batman v. Superman in November.
The phenomenal success of the comic based movies has opened up huge opportunities and Franco is looking forward to any association with these or any other franchises, though he is awaiting invitations yet.
“Absolutely,” he said. “Again, it is one of these things that they can literally go to anybody, but I’m here if they want me.”
