(Warning: The following contains potential SPOILERS for future episodes of DC and The CW's 'Arrow.' Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests to you is wise.)

Now, Arrow has never been quite as trigger-happy with its classic DC character cameos as its sister shows The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, with the darker, grittier setting of Star City proving a less obvious staging ground for the DC universe's often outlandish character base. The show's fourth season, however, has loosened the seal a little, with the likes of Vixen, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, and even John Constantine having hit the small screen. And now? Well...

It Seems Another Iconic DC Hero May Be Heading To Arrow

Specifically, as the above DC All Access video appears to tease (starting at around the 4:27 mark), we might just be seeing one of the most beloved DC heroes of them all: The Question.

As DC's Hector Navarro reveals in the video, Oliver Queen will apparently be heading out of town — and might just be set to run into a certain blank-faced hero:

"[Oliver] decides he needs to find a way to defeat Damien Darhk's magic, so what does he do? He goes to a place called Hub City to possibly learn from an ally of Constantine's, maybe? And if you're a comic-book fan you know Hub City's the home of classic fan-favorite character, The Question."

Which, while far from an outright reveal, would sure seem to suggest that The Question could well be coming to tomorrow night's episode of Arrow in some form or another.

Now, the odds of us actually seeing a fully formed, masked Question seem relatively slim — but could Oliver be set to meet up with, say, a conspiracy theory obsessed detective named Vic Sage, a.k.a. The Question's usual alter ego? Or, perhaps, a mysterious figure featuring the name Charlton, as a subtle nod to The Question's origins in Charlton Comics, before being brought into the DC universe back in the 1980s?

Or, alternatively, is Hector Navarro just messing with us?

It seems we'll find out tomorrow night, when Arrow returns.

What do you think, though?
