McQueen Teases Nightwing on Arrow

In a couple of tweets from late last week and this week, Vampire Diaries star Steven McQueen has strongly hinted that he’s been cast or in the process of being cast as the former Robin, Nightwing (aka Dick Grayson) on the CW’s Arrow. Nightwing scuttlebutt has taken the internet by storm since it’s been rumored that the character will appear in Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Batman vs. Superman (Man of Steel 2).

Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen on Arrow) has made it clear that other DC heroes will appear on the show this season (other than already announced Black Canary and the Flash) on his Facebook and twitter accounts. With the League of Assassins and Ra’s al Ghul playing a role in the show, a Batman family member’s inclusion wouldn’t surprise anyone.
What’s making this even more interesting is DC Entertainment being coy on the connections of the DC TV Universe and the DC Movie-verse started with Man of Steel (available on Blu Ray and DVD today 11/12).
Of the actors rumored to be in consideration for the role of Dick Grayson in Batman vs. Superman, Steven McQueen certainly looks the part (Adam Driver is not an ideal choice at all). For now, file this under speculation and not rumor (for Arrow and not the Man of Steel follow up). Keep checking back at Dark Knight News for further updates on this and other casting rumors.

Carlos Cabaleiro illustrator+designer+storyteller I grew up just outside of New York. The eldest of three talented siblings; fascinated by my imagination and superheroes. Relocated to Florida and attended Miami International School of Art and Design. Worked as a freelance graphic designer to pay the bills. Somewhere along the way, I ended up taking a detour and now I'm back to making a living from my talent. Back and better than ever, I'm making my way in the world armed with my imagination, skill, talent, determination and the love and support of my fiancee, Kristina, and my family and friends. I now reside in Central Florida and share my studio with my sidekick, Grayson the dog wonder (he doesn't draw but he likes to keep me company). I am influenced by Bruce Timm, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Michael Golden, Egon Schiele, Leonardo D'vinci, Alex Ross, Wally Wood, Carl Banks and Don Newton. I focus primarily on illustration dealing with all things fandom, with a strong focus on sequential storytelling (storyboards, comics). I've worked for clients such as Ocean Drive magazine, Bacardi advertising and High Impact Comics. A HUGE Batman fan. I get excited for DC Comics, anything by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, James Robinson, FX's Justified and really cool action figures. I love to read and mostly lean towards fantasy or classics. Some favorites are: Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, anything by Edgar Allan Poe, Raylan Givens short stories by Elmore Leonard and my all-time favorite, Dracula by Bram Stoker.
