The Dunkirk and Love/Hate actor's bid for top billing in the movie follows director Chris McKay's shout-out to fans last week, in which he sought their casting opinions.
If YOU were to cast NIGHTWING, what is the most important quality you would you look for in actor:— Chris McKay (@buddboetticher) February 9, 2018
Last month on Twitter, McKay wrote: "It's too early to talk about casting but in February... say around Valentine's Day maybe... I should have an update about where everything is with the first NIGHTWING movie!!"
The Dubliner is nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category at this year's IFTA Film and Drama Awards for his performance in The Killing of a Sacred Deer. The awards take place in Dublin on Thursday night.
Keoghan will be among the honourees at the US-Ireland Alliance's 13th annual Oscar Wilde Awards in California on March 1.
He will be presented with the Wilde Card award, which is given to up-and-coming Irish talent. Saoirse Ronan was a previous recipient.
