Steven R McQueen of CW's hit series The Vampire Diaries posted another picture on his Instagram hinting at being cast as Nightwing, but this time, less subtly. Take a look at the picture and judge for yourself.

For the past few months, ever since rumors first surfaced of Nightwing making an appearance on CW's Arrow series, Steven R McQueen of CW's The Vampire Diaries has been giving subtle hints at already being cast in the role. Although it could be more wishful thinking from the actor's perspective than anything concrete. In the past month however he has increased the 'easter eggs' on his Twitter account by retweeting Scott Snyder's Batman quotes and images, and by uploading images of DC Comic book titles. The latest image that caught fans attention was when on June 5th, 2014 he uploaded an image of himself with Arrow's lead actor Stephen Amell, at a LA Kings game with the subtitle "#arrow #nightwing #golakings".

@steven_r_mcqueen: "#arrow #nightwing #golakings"


Again, this could be more wishful thinking by the young actor, as his schedule with The Vampire Diaries in New Orleans is quite overbooked as of yet. However, taking into consideration what had transpired in the season finale of Arrow, the concept of Nightwing coming to Starling City to face The League of Assassins and the return of Malcom Merilyn with Thea Queen has become a probable journey the writers could choose to take Oliver Queen in.

It'll probably be like the Harley Quinn thing where it gets really hyped and ends ups to something small.
Arrowhead77 - 6/5/2014, 6:11 AM
It would be pretty damn awesome!
CoulsonLives - 6/5/2014, 6:14 AM
He's flying through the air with the greatest of ease!

A daring young man on the Flying Trapeze!

So.. Is his mentor Ben Affleck or what?
CherryBomb - 6/5/2014, 6:20 AM
Nah, I think he's just still campaigning for the role.

But yeah it would be cool, this is why I want two separate universes for The CW and the DCCU.
Because we could get CW Nightwing and Barbara/Oracle or something.

Not enough people watch the CW for them to have much success at merging film and tv universes.
shabat - 6/5/2014, 6:20 AM
That'd be really cool.
shabat - 6/5/2014, 6:21 AM
The more and more I think about it, I agree @Cherry. I used to want them to merge the TV and Movieverses, but they need to be separate.
CherryBomb - 6/5/2014, 6:22 AM
Speaking of The Vampire Diaries
someone desperately needs to cast Claire Holt in a CBM role. Film or TV I don't care just make it happen.


StingyFox - 6/5/2014, 6:33 AM
Better be true. Nightwing better be a series regular too. Not just a cameo. The Vampire Diaries can find someone else.
m0th3r - 6/5/2014, 6:43 AM
A nightwing series would be epic....Since we are passsing around fan films today, anyone see Grayson?

batcheeks8 - 6/5/2014, 7:00 AM
This guy wants it SO bad haha, gotta humor him for that. But I doubt it.
OpticBlastWins - 6/5/2014, 7:02 AM
Just like last year right
DrunkenNukem - 6/5/2014, 7:14 AM
He does look like Dick Grayson

It would be awsome to see Nightwing
QuestiontheAnswer - 6/5/2014, 7:18 AM
He does have the look and his acting is very angsty. Perfect for a CW Nightwing.
Prime - 6/5/2014, 7:28 AM
Where is Batfleck?
Gyasiman - 6/5/2014, 7:34 AM
Oh gosh please let this be true. PLEASE. Just imagine how much more universe building this would do. We already know Batman exist in this world. Along with the Flash, Arrow right now is DC's largest shared universe on screen.
sKeemAn - 6/5/2014, 7:42 AM
Ok thats pretty awesome. We already got a Flash spinoff which is looking extra good. Now Nightwing. Man oh Man we live in good times.
Gyasiman - 6/5/2014, 7:50 AM
With a little bit darker hair, he looks almost exactly like the Young Justice version of Nightwing.


Sunnyd - 6/5/2014, 7:53 AM
Would be awesome.
@CherryBomb
Cannot agree we need more Claire Holt in anything and everything.

[frick]ing Fantastic.
GliderMan - 6/5/2014, 8:06 AM
PUT THAT MOTHER[frick]ER IN BATMAN VS SUPERMAN PRONTO
DrAtom - 6/5/2014, 8:07 AM
I don't care if he is Nightwing or not just the fact that Nightwing will problably be in Arrow is good news.
DrRockit13 - 6/5/2014, 8:08 AM
It would be cool, but if by some miracle the CW DCU is connected to the Cinematic DC, he needs to be a bigger better older actor.
Gusto - 6/5/2014, 8:09 AM
Screw Nightwing!

THABATMAN - 6/5/2014, 8:14 AM
If Nightwing comes in I'm hoping he can finally get his own show!
Azbat - 6/5/2014, 8:14 AM
So a new hero each season?
DEFA - 6/5/2014, 8:18 AM
- Exelent...!!! please be truth
Nivekian - 6/5/2014, 8:19 AM
Again, this guy is trolling the net. Suckers.
SkullFace616 - 6/5/2014, 8:21 AM
If so please give him the black and blue instead of black and red costume!!
JorL5150 - 6/5/2014, 8:23 AM
@ the thread -
I'd like to see the DC TV shows connect to DCCU even if the films stock with mostly the big three

'@ cherry -


Your fixation on hawt women is....

Just keep doing it - you know it's a room full of virgins and dirty old men
lDEMON - 6/5/2014, 8:30 AM
He is such a horrible actor!!! I want Nightwing, just not him as Dick!!!
CaptainKronos - 6/5/2014, 8:31 AM
Not true. But this Nightwing crap highlights a problem with Arrow.
People want to watch The Flash because of The Flash.
They want to watch Arrow to see cameos and easter eggs. The reason why is because Arrow himself is not enough! Proof of that is in the falling ratings.

People can defend Arrow's pin-prick ratings by comparing it to CW's other shows but that's garbage when Smallville had better ratings and you have Walking Dead on cable getting over 15 million viewers a week.

Arrow needs to fix that problem, make Arrow himself such a draw that no one gives a damn about Nightwing taking a cameo piss in Starling City.

I expect The Flash to more than double Arrow's ratings early on and if it's good hold 80% of it's initial audience. At that point I think CW will see that though it ranks high among their terrible programming, it's actually a very weak show.
