There were a lot, and I do mean a lot of Batman Easter eggs during the visit to Gotham City in the Arrow portion of the “Elseworlds” crossover. Whether it was Barry, Oliver, and Kara being arrested at the corner of Nolan and Burton or Kate Kane telling the three newcomers that the password to the wi-fi is “Alfred,” there was no shortage of Bat-related Easter eggs for fans of the DC Comics character who has all but disappeared from Gotham City. In his place, though, would be his cousin, Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane, as Batwoman made her grand debut in the Arrowverse.
When Kara, Barry, and Oliver ended up at Wayne Tower in search of answers, they showed Kate Kane the sketch of the monitor that had been drawn in the Flash portion of the crossover, which is what led the heroes to Gotham in the first place. While looking over the sketches, Kate Kane asks the trio if they tried facial recognition. She then mentions how one of Bruce Wayne’s R&D guys still works in the building, so she’d give the sketch to him. The obvious pick here would be Lucius Fox, going off of Kane’s description.
However, with Batman and Bruce Wayne gone, it seems as if a lot of his support is gone as well. Now there’s no confirmation that Alfred and Lucius Fox — who is currently played by Chris Chalk over on Gotham — have also left for parts unknown. But a recent character breakdown for the potential Batwoman series did mention a young, African-American male, as well as the name “Landon,” which is part of an imperative legacy that has serviced Batman with engineered gadgets. This would be Luke Fox, who eventually became Batwing. Given the description and Kane’s mention, this could be the R&D guy who still works in the building.
Should a Batwoman series be officially green lit, it’s a possibility that we would inevitably see Luke Fox working alongside Kate Kane. And given how the “Elseworlds” event served as a backdoor pilot and introduction for Batwoman into the Arrowverse, as well as a possible team-up with her and Supergirl down the line, the episode did a good job introducing Batman’s world to the Arrowverse and planting the seeds for things to come down the line.
