Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim recently revealed that Batman will not be making an appearance in The CW’s upcoming Elseworlds crossover event.
The CW has brought a lot of comic book characters to the small screen but one of DC’s most iconic characters has yet to make an appearance in this universe. Fans have been wanting to see Batman make even a cameo in the Arrowverse for years, especially after Tyler Hoechlin joined the Arrowverse as Superman. The upcoming Elseworlds event is looking to turn the universe on its head, with many fans wondering if the Caped Crusader would finally be making an appearance.
Sadly, Marc Guggenheim confirmed via his Twitter account that Batman would not be making an appearance during the Elseworlds event. Although the Dark Knight may not be coming to The CW, Batwoman is still on her way. The Bat-Family member is going to be played by Ruby Rose, so there will be plenty of Bat-action in the future of the Arrowverse. Check out Guggenheim’s tweet below.
