The latest episode of the Ruby Rose series Batwoman revealed the fate of the Arrowverse’s Joker is tied to Batman’s disappearance.
Batwoman might heavily deal with Batman’s legacy in Gotham City after his disappearance, but his most famous adversary has only been mentioned a handful of times thanks to his role in Kate’s tragic backstory. The Arrowverse’s Joker has never made a full appearance in the series, but with the character having a near constant presence on the big screen, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, the most recent episode of Batwoman finally explained why viewers haven’t seen the Arrowverse’s Joker in any of the shows.
With Batwoman struggling to deal with her morality after murdering Dr. August Cartwright, she argued with Luke Fox about Bruce Wayne’s famous rule against murdering his enemies. It’s here that Luke reveals that Batman stared into the abyss and implies that the Dark Knight murdered the Arrowverse’s Joker, which ultimately led to Bruce’s disappearance. Fans previously saw a similar darker version of Bruce Wayne in Crisis On Infinite Earths, played by Kevin Conroy. Take a look at what Luke tells Kate below.
“Ever wonder why the Joker hasn’t reared his head in five years? He’s not in Arkham, Kate. Both you and Bruce stared into the abyss.”
