If there’s one thing that “Arrow” fans have come to realize about the series, it’s that producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg do not shy away from DC Universe cameos. In fact, there have already been a ton of amazing DC Comics character cameos on “Arrow” thus far, including the likes of Deadshot, Deathstroke, Merlyn, Firefly, Count Vertigo, and even the Huntress.
Last Saturday, at PaleyFest 2013, “Arrow” cast members and producers talked about the future of the series, delving into Oliver Queen’s many secrets and even discussing potential cameos for future episodes. In a special interview with Comic Book Resources, Guggenheim and Kreisberg gave the lowdown on which guest stars they would personally want to see. Their answers: Nightwing and the Question.
“Dick Grayson and Nightwing were always my favorite,” revealed Kreisberg when asked which DC character he’d want to appear in “Arrow’s” second season. “I doubt we’ll ever get to that point. The Bat-universe will never coincide with ours, but Nightwing would be my fantasy.” For those of you who don’t know, Dick Grayson is the original boy wonder, Robin, who becomes the vigilante Nightwing after outgrowing the red and green spandex.
“The Question,” answered Guggenheim. “I would love to tackle him at some point. I think he would fit really well in our little universe. So we talk about him a lot.” Donning a trench coat and a faceless skin mask, Vic Sage is a highly intelligent investigative reporter that becomes the Question in order to solve cases that his civilian persona cannot.
While it doesn’t seem very likely that we’ll be seeing members of the Bat family on “Arrow” any time soon, we have already been introduced to Blüdhaven, Nightwing’s usual stomping grounds. So it wouldn’t be completely out of the question if Dick Grayson popped up in Starling City. Speaking of questions, in the comic books the Question takes up a huge interest in the Huntress whilst chasing a lead in Gotham City. Perhaps Vic Sage will be making his “Arrow” debut in the same episode that Helena Bertinelli returns?
