There’s only one person who wants Steven R. McQueen to become Nightwing more than us, and that’s Steven himself!
The 26-year-old Vampire Diaries star is a big comic book fan and has mentioned on several occasions that he would love to play the blue-and-black colored DC superhero.
“I want to play Nightwing real bad,” Steven told Just Jared earlier this year during his JJ Spotlight photo shoot. “I worked with [Arrow creator] Greg Berlanti a while ago on a show called Everwood and jokingly I tweeted him saying, ‘Hey, let me come play Nightwing for a couple episodes.’ And somebody wrote an article about it, so I was like, let’s make it happen, but I haven’t heard anything about it yet.”
Most recently, the Arrow writers asked fans on Twitter what they would like to see next, and Steven of course responded, “@ARROWwriters @CW_Arrow Nightwing (me).”
We think it’s time to make this happen, on Arrow or in another capacity.
