Coming September 2012:

In the Smallville Universe, Stephanie Brown will not appear as Batgirl or spoiler, but Nightwing.


According to Writer Bryan Q. Miller (Batgirl 2009):

"Bruce can be somewhat of an angry man. Stephanie's personality is so can-do and unsinkable and bright, so it's very much on purpose on Bruce's part that he has a good cop going out on patrol with him every night."

Miller also promises to explain how Stephanie becomes Nightwing, instead of Batgirl.

From ComicBookMovie.com

"Batman and 'Nightwing' [Brown] will make their debut in Smallville Season 11 in the fourt part arc titled "Detective" this August, and then in print in September. Snarkiness aside, good writing can make any new interpretation of a comic book character seem "brilliant" and "cutting-edge" so I'll probably pick up the title and check it out. But god help DC and this title if it's simply more of the derivative drivel that the television churned out in it's later seasons.
