Has Arrow Found its Nightwing in a Vampire Diaries Star?
Could Vampire Diaries star Stephen R. McQueen (best known for his role as Jeremy Gilbert) be about to take on the role of Nightwing on the CW’s Arrow?
The signs are certainly there. The 25-year-old tweeted recently that he had some “superhero conversations” with the Arrow executives over the weekend. Check out his tweet below.
Another tweet, “Nightwing in training,” showing McQueen working out in a vest that clearly depicts the DC character’s insignia, points to the star’s very likely involvement in the show.
Earlier this year Arrow co-creator Andrew Kreisberg spoke of his fondness for the DC comics character saying “Dick Grayson and Nightwing were always my favourite. I doubt we’ll ever get to that point. The Bat universe will never coincide with ours, but Nightwing would be my fantasy.”
Your dreams may come Andrew.
