Now treat this as a huge rumour for now, but could Nightwing be appearing in the upcoming third season of The CW’s ARROW?
The source of this speculation comes from THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Steven R. McQueen. Having attended the recent LA Kings vs New York Rangers NHL game, the actor posted the below picture with ARROW's Oliver Queen, Stephen Amell, to his Instagram account.
Whilst the image itself is fairly innocuous, the juicy part came in the caption that accompanied the picture, which read, “@amelladventures @lakings #arrow #nightwing #gokings”
Could McQueen know something that we don’t, could it be a case of wishful thinking on the actor’s behalf, or could the caption purely be meant for shits ‘n’ giggles? McQueen has previously shown he’s a fan of the character, so maybe there’s nothing more to it than that.
Given how ARROW has featured plenty of names from the DC Universe, not to mention from the Batman world, it wouldn’t be completely unexpected if Dick Grayson/Nightwing were to appear at some stage. In fact, Bludhaven has been name-dropped several times throughout ARROW’s run, and that is the city that Nightwing does he best to keep in order. Just as the show has been used as a springboard for The Flash’s solo show, how brilliant would it be to see Nightwing interacting with the Emerald Archer before departing for his own show down the line? A fanboy can dream, no?
As mentioned at the get-go, take this all with a pinch of salt for now. But just imagine…
Expect more on this as and when it develops.
