He then talked in some details about something he's publicly mentioned before that he's
currently pitching a Nightwing story to DC that he called "a comprehensive view of Dick's Full
career and what makes him
a very different detective than Bruce."
Snyder explained he loved writing for the character during his Detective
Comics run and wanted to tell more stories with him while Dick was Batman,
but explained DC brought Bruce back and did "Court of Owls" and he never
got to go back to him despite wanting to for a long time.
"He's the character that more than anyone else in the Bat-Family wears his
heart on his sleeve," said Snyder, explaining his admiration for the character.
"He's not the best detective from an empirical standpoint, but he's the best
emotional detective out of all the Former Robins, in my opinion. He's
someone who understands human psychology; he understands empathy.
There are mysteries Bruce wouldn't do as well on as Dick and he [Dick]
sometimes gets shortchanged in terms of people thinking of him as Batman-
"But I don't think of him that way," he continued. "I think of him more as someone with a very
different skill set as a detective and Gotham would look very different under his mantle."
And that's what the Nightwing story he's pitching is about: Dick takes over the the mantle after
Bruce and his story examines, "How he runs Gotham differently."
"I'm excited to do it and it looks like I'll get the chance," he said.
