Kyle Higgins, born June 12, 1985, is a New York Times Best Selling writer (Batman: Gates of Gotham) and graduate of Chapman University's Film Production program. Originally from Homer Glen, IL, at the age of seven Kyle discovered the 1978 version of Superman. The movie first introduced Kyle to two of his biggest passions: filmmaking and comic books. With his fascination for superheroes fueling his love of cinema, Kyle began to pursue a career in directing at a very early age.
After two years of studying film and creative writing at the University of Iowa, Kyle transferred to Chapman University in Orange, CA. In the fall of 2006, Kyle took on an internship with The Donners Company. The unpaid position provided Kyle an opportunity to work for Director Richard Donner, the man responsible for the film that introduced Kyle to cinema. From 2007-2008, Kyle co-wrote (with Alec Siegel) and directed The League as his senior thesis at Chapman. The film opened many doors, including Marvel and DC Comics, and after a series of one shots with Alec, Kyle co-created The Nightrunner (DC) with David Hine and launched two miniseries in the spring of 2011: Supreme Power (Marvel) and Batman: Gates of Gotham (DC).
Most recently, Kyle headlined both Nightwing and Deathstroke as a part of DC's the New 52. He is currently writing Nightwing, Batman Beyond, and several creator owned projects.
