'Arrow' Execs Still Want to Add Nightwing

Could we soon see Dick Grayson on the TV show?

Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg says Nightwing is his "fantasy" character to add to the show, but apparently that's unlikely to happen any time soon. According to Digital Spy, he and Marc Guggenheim chatted with the press at this year's Comic-Con and said WB's latest movie announcement (untitled Batman/Superman project) makes things far more complicated.

"We've heard the fans and we're very well aware that they would like to see Nightwing and various other Bat-characters on the show."

"[But] that is a little bit out of our control, [and] I think [that movie] announcement made it a lot more out of our control!"

They said they'd still love to use him, but I wouldn't expect the first Robin to show up in the upcoming season, Viners. Besides, we're getting plenty of other characters to look forward to -- Black Canary, Bronze Tiger, Deadshot, Brother Blood, etc. In case you haven't seen it yet, here's the trailer they released at Comic-Con. Don't watch it if you haven't finished season one!

Arrow will return October 9th.

It would be awesome if they actually did this.

NO!!!!! Keep Batman and anyone associated with Batman far away. This is Green Arrow's show, this is why I hate Batman because DC wants to shove him down our f**king throats. Sometimes you have to tell the Batman Fanboys no.

That would be awesome. I prefer Nightwing wearing his blue suit instead of the red.

I am a HUGE Nightwing fan. Dick Grayson is my favorite comic character. That being said....I do NOT want to see him on a tv show. Not convinced that it could do him justice without major continuity issues

I absolutely LOVE Nightwing. I can't stress that enough and I would freak at a live action portrayal of him, but Arrow can NOT do this. I know Arrow has a lot of references to Blüdhaven but the bigger picture is that it would ruin any consistency in the DCU. You can't have Nightwing before you have Robin's falling out with Batman. I think the execs of Arrow need to give the hardcore readers what we deserve and have an "Arrowverse" if you will, and build Green Arrow to the hero he has risen to over the years. IMO DC is a better comic universe than Marvel ( I still like Marvel ) and the show needs to stick to its own material and stay away from the "Bat-verse" at least for a few seasons until GREEN ARROW becomes a HERO and not just a hooded vigilante.

Any complaints? let's have a civilized debate not a "Screw you contest"

@mkukie68: Screw you....j/k. I agree. As a Grayson die hard I am holding out hope Dick will be on the big screen with Batman. First as Robin then later as Nightwing. I think Arrow doesn't need to accidentally add to many heroes and end upstaging GA himself.

@richardjohngrayson: SCREW YOU TOO BUDDY haha. Btw I like your profile pic, one of my absolute FAVORITE achievements I' ve earned. I'm sad that there's of course no way he could be in Origins. :-/

What Dc should do with Nightwing is do what they are doing with Flash make him a character on the show and if tests wel then make him his own show
