Will "Arrow" Season 3 grant "The Vampire Diaries" star Steven R. McQueen his wish to play Nightwing on the CW action series? The caption on a recent Instagram photo featuring McQueen and "Arrow" star Stephen Amell indicates it might just happen.

The Instagram photo appeared on Wednesday (June 4), apparently in support of hockey's L.A. Kings for the NHL finals.



One might think this is just two CW, hockey fans hanging out if it were not for the accompanying caption: "@amelladventures @lakings #arrow #nightwing #gokings"

McQueen has been publicly lobbying to play the character of Nightwing -- a DC Comics character who is a later incarnation of Batman's sidekick, Robin -- for awhile now. But his entreaties haven't yielded results with "Arrow," possibly because there hasn't been a place for Nightwing in the show's complicated story.

Could that change in Season 3? Could McQueen be leaving behind his regular character of Jeremy Gilbert in favor of Nightwing?

Only time will tell.
