Is Nightwing In "Batman vs. Superman"?

Ahead of Saturday's "Man Of Steel" online Q&A, many are wondering if the session will be used to make a major announcement about the upcoming sequel "Batman vs. Superman" (rumors today indicate a piece of artwork will premiere).

Today though, sources for Latino Review have made their own announcement. They suggest that the character of Dick Grayson, the post-Robin Nightwing version of him, will make an appearance in the film.

Reportedly the studio is seeking a 5'10, caucassian actor with martial arts familiarity and resembling "a young John C. Hawkes type". They also suggest that in the film narrative, Nightwing and Ben Affleck's veteran Batman will not have spoken for years.

The introduction though would make sense if Warners is building to an eventual "Justice League". Speaking of the DC Comics hero team-up, TV's "Arrow" star Stephen Amell posted a "Justice League" comic image to his official Facebook account. Could some of the Justice League be coming to "Arrow"?
