    Nay on both counts, in my opinion. It's a possibility, but neither a given nor absolutely necessary. That would be like saying because Felicity Smoak exists, Firestorm (the superhero the original character was most associated with) exists; which - as the show has demonstrated thus far - isn't the case.

    Taking the Joker away from Harley's character would be like taking away the island from Oliver. They could do it if it was pre-Joker Harleen Quinzel, when she was a normal person, but if she is in that cell than she is definitely Harley Quinn not Harleen. That is if it is even her in the first place.

    That's a bit of a stretch, I think. Felecitiy Smoak, before Arrow, was hardly known. Amongst casual fans, no one knew her, and I'm sure comic book fans wouldn't immediately recognize her. So that leaves her interpretation and history subject to change without much backlash or hatred from the fans. Harley Quinn is different. She's immediately associated with the Joker. Even casual fans at the very least know her. I'm sure those who watched the cartoons casually associate her with the Joker. So her back story and character history are really hard to change without serious fan backlash. I think (if it is Harley) that her existence implies Joker's existence, which implies Bat's existence.

    With all that said, I know I'm certainly stretching it, but if this mean's that the Batman has been around for a long while, then this show really fits into the DCCU, where we know that Batman has been fighting for a while now.

    :whatever:

    They should stop teasing the shippers jeez... :cmad:

    Ollie and Felicity is pointless, it won't last and it would make Oliver even more pathetic, they're better off as friends. If Sara and him break up or whatever, he should stay single for a while, shippers be damned! The show doesn't need them to be popular, they should leave that stuff to TVD & co.

    Looks like she deleted them, they were there. It was pictures of her in the orange jumpsuit with black nails and the tags were #arrow #harlequin #sadisticfun

    No joke guys, i'm guessing nobody noticed them until the preview was posted and then they were discovered and she was pressured to remove them

    If that's really Harley, what's next, the Joker? It seems desperate from their part, they should not depend on Batman characters to gain attention, despite all the DC characters so far, ratings are down: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/20...hville-up-csi-chicago-fire-arrow-down/242442/

    They should improve the writing, make Laurel, Roy and Thea more interesting, more Diggle, the Huntress less psycho... and less shipper pandering with pointless Olicity, etc.

    You really should do some reading on Harley Quinn in the comics, that way you won't sound completely out of touch and will realize that Harley Quinn isn't an appendage of the Joker anymore.

    A lot of network TV is down so far this week.

    Yup. Drew mostly Superman comics, and was a contemporary of Batman artist Dick Sprang. (50's, 60's)

    If Steven McQueen is Nightwing that could be in keeping with that rumor of a Young Justice show for 2015... I'm guessing Nightwing and Roy will be major characters on that show. Superboy and Miss Martian were the other two rumored characters.

    I'm so excited Nightwing is probably going to be on Arrow, I'm really hoping they set up the Nightwing/Deathstroke rivalry

    Also, if Nightwing and Ra's Al Ghul exist in this universe, it's not a stretch to think that the woman with the blonde pigtails is Harley

    Exactly my thoughts. I know some do not really want to see Batman characters, but Nightwing is one of my favorites so I welcome him. And I personally have no problem with all the Bat characters.
    And that girl is totally Harley. She retweeted messages that said, ''You're Harley Quinn.''

    If so, they might end up having to recast the role. McQueen is already a regular on The Vampire Diaries.

    I'm hoping the suit won't suck.

    I hope they'll take a look at the Young Justice outfit.

    So do I. Arkham City had a pretty awesome design, as well.

    The emblem on the Young Justice suit is too small. I prefer the Arkham City suit

    i like this one a lot. I like when the blue extends down to two of his fingers. Also, the arm bands basically function as a utility belt and i always liked that look .

    Nightwing's costume is pretty easy to nail, it's hard to mess it up.

    This fan made outfit doesn't look too shabby. Use the material they are using for Flash, and he would look pretty boss.

    Nightwing wouldn't just be cool; he would perfectly fit in thematically with some of the stuff Oliver is going through right now. It's a brilliant idea IMO. :up:
