Rumor of the Day: Is this the next masked hero coming to Arrow?

Arrow is already pretty jam-packed with heroes and villains, but could we be getting another major name next season?

I think we all know that the reason Arrow exists at all is because there will probably never be a live-action TV series starring actual, adult, not-kid Batman. Bats' movie franchise is just too successful to allow for that.

But the plus side is that Arrow is way better than anyone could have expected. And now it looks like we might see a Batman sidekick join the fold in season three.

There has been some talk that former Robin, Nightwing, could somehow make his way on to Arrow. And, in particular, Vampire Diaries actor Steven R. McQueen has been hinting that he'll be the man to play the part.

Is he being serious, or just hoping for the best? Well, his latest Instagram missive has us thinking it might just be the former.

There they are, Stephen and Steven, just hanging out with a caption that reads, "@amelladventures @lakings #arrow #nightwing #gokings." 

Granted, we don't even know how Nightwing works without Batman, but, hey, it could happen.
