Nightwing Appearance For ARROW Season 2 Confirmed
Over the weekend at WonderCon ARROW Producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that the fan favorite Nightwing aka Dick Grayson would make an appearance sometime in season 2. The character has already been cast too, The Vampire Diaries’ own Ian Somerhalder will play the vigilante hero.
The producer was interviewed by Lair Of Slop and had this to say about casting the character;
The CW is planning this big actor-switcheroo with their main stars. We’re giving someone up for an episode so Ian can come down [to set]. We thought this was a great opportunity to introduce Nightwing as Oliver’s going to make plenty of trips to Bludhaven soon.
He went on to add this;
It took us quite a while to convince the powers that be that this is the best idea. We’re not doing it as a big easter egg. Just like bringing in The Huntress, Dick Grayson’s addition feels very organic to the story. Oliver will see that there’s another vigilante like him out there, and maybe, just maybe, change his view on what he does.
I know lots of fans that are going to be excited about seeing Nightwing on Arrow next season. This is the kind of character that could potentially get his own series.
