Bad news, fellow comic-book fans - and watchers of The Flash and Arrow in particular - it looks as though we won't be seeing our television heroes make there way to the most iconic cities of the DC universe.

Speaking at a recent fan screening of the Arrow/The Flash crossover, producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that:

"There are things we can do, and there are things we can't...I'm a huge fan of Nightwing. But there are cities we can use, and then there's everything else. You won't be hearing Gotham or Metropolis on the show anytime soon."

Which is...kind of a downer, actually - as that makes it sound as though we've got absolutely no chance of seeing any of the Gotham or Metropolis-based heroes from the DC back-catalog in the show any time soon (if ever...). Which isn't too surprising, since that was the exact same restriction that the long-running Smallville had.

The only silver lining? Kreisberg's mention of Nightwing is unlikely to suggest that we won't be seeing Batman's one-time sidekick on one of the shows.

On his way to the small screen?

After all - Dick Grayson, a.k.a. Nightwing, made his home in Bludhaven, rather than Gotham - so that mention of Nightwing?

Well, that might just be a hint of who to expect real soon...

What do you guys think, though?


Should Arrow and The Flash visit Gotham and Metropolis?
